Gems of San Diego Privacy Policy

Gems of San Diego is committed to protecting the privacy of its users. Part of that commitment is a privacy policy that points out what user-data may be collected, who has access to that data, and what you can do about it if you desire.

Overview

Far to often we are surfing the internet and simply don't realize that a number of sites we have visited collect information on us without our knowledge. Most of it is for our convenience (remember our default settings, site preferences, subscriptions, etc.) but not all. As users of the internet, we all need to be aware of this "behind the scenes" activity and set our equipment up in a way that we are most comfortable.

Gems of San Diego cannot advise you on your personal settings but we will, with this policy, help to make you aware of what information may be collected and put on your computing device by a great number of websites.
