At James Avery, we value our customers' privacy and want you to be familiar with how we may collect, use and disclose your information while operating our business and interacting with you. We have created this privacy notice so you are aware of such practices and your options related to information collected through our various interactions with you, including through this website, our social media pages, emails, and online ads, through our customer service, and at our retail stores.
What Information We Collect
We also collect data that you personally enter into our website, and data that you provide to our sales associates in James Avery retail stores or our mail order customer service associates. We may collect this information in connection with inquiries, purchases, promotions, catalog orders, email correspondence, and online registrations. We may also receive other information about you generated as a result of our interactions with you, information from third parties (such as social media services or joint marketing partners) and information that you may directly provide to us through any phone, mail, fax, email, online interactions, sweepstakes or any paper registrations that you submit. The information that may be collected includes personal identifiers, such as your name, profile name, or social media user name; mailing address; email address; phone number; IP address; any personal preferences you choose to provide; transaction details such as style, size, price, date, store; and inferences drawn from any of the above. Information may also be collected when you interact with us on social media, such as when you “like” us or when you use one of our hashtags.
We use a third-party payment processor to handle all customer payment transactions. When you make a payment at checkout, any sensitive payment information you provide, such as your credit card number, will be collected and used only by the payment processor for purposes of completing the transaction.
How We Use Information and How You Can
Control Such Use
The information we collect is used to process orders, to bill and collect payment, to resolve problems or customer inquiries, to contact customers or prospective customers, to learn about our customers and personalize content, to meet legal concerns or obligations, and to maintain or improve our products and services, including our email or other marketing outreach, our website, and any other of our online or other business activities.
If you supply us with your mailing address, you may receive mailings from us with information on new products and services or upcoming events. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, you may be removed from our mailing list by requesting to be removed using any of the Contact/Opt-Out Methods listed below.
Within our website you have the option to join our email list and receive emails containing promotional information about our products, services, and offers. In addition, if you provide us with your email address on any of our other online pages or to our customer service or in-store associates, you may automatically be added to our email list and receive such emails. If you do not wish to receive our promotional emails, you may opt-out by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link found at the bottom of all promotional/advertising emails and following the related instructions, or by contacting us using any of the Contact/Opt-Out Methods listed below.
Persons who supply us with their telephone numbers will only receive telephone contact from us concerning purchases or direct inquiries made by such persons.
The information that you give us and information about your order may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources. This information will be used to make our future marketing efforts more efficient. This information may also be shared with other reputable marketers to bring you offers of interest. If you prefer that we do not share your information with other reputable marketers, please contact us at any of the Contact/Opt-Out Methods listed below and request that your name be marked as “do not share”. Further, upon your request via any of those methods, we will happily correct any inaccurate information concerning you that we may have in reasonably obtainable form.
We may provide personally identifiable or other information, without notice to you, in response to a lawful request from a law enforcement or government agency or in response to a formal request in a civil action that on its face meets the requirements for such a request. In addition, we may provide personally identifiable information, without notice, to credit bureaus or collection agencies if we are permitted or required to do so by law.

California Consumer Privacy Rights
In addition to generally disclosing what personal information we collect, how we use or share such information, and your options related to such use as provided above, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) requires that we notify California residents of certain rights they have related to personal information. Subject to such law, California residents have the right to:
- Submit a verifiable request to us (no more than twice in a 12-month period) to disclose what personal information about you we have collected, used, disclosed, or sold in the 12 months preceding such request (“Information Request”);
- Request the deletion of your personal information that we have collected (“Deletion Request”), subject to various exceptions under the CCPA, including, but not limited to, using such information internally in a lawful manner that is compatible with the context in which you provided the information or to provide a good or service reasonably anticipated in our ongoing business relationship with you.
- Correct any inaccurate personal information we may have about you (“Correction Request”); and

Only you, or your authorized agent or guardian (with sufficient verifiable proof), may submit a request related to your personal information. The submission must describe the specific request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. Recognizing the risk of potential abuse of these requests as an identity theft tool, we may ask for certain verifiable information to match against any of your information we may already have access to. To better protect your privacy, we may also ask for an alternative form of contact for verification purposes.
California - Do Not Share/Sell My Personal Information. While we are not data brokers and we do not sell any personal information in exchange for monetary consideration, California law requires that we provide options for California residents to opt-out of the use and sharing of their personal information for our targeted advertising efforts.
