Children Under the Age of 13
We also take the protection and data security of minor children under the age of 13 seriously. To that end Parin Gems does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If it is discovered that we have done so, we will promptly delete that data from out servers.

Parin Gems takes securing your personal information seriously. As such we employ a number of electronic and physical security protocols to ensure that your personal information remains safe and secure. However, in today’s rapidly changing technological environment, no security protocol is impregnable. To that end, we cannot guarantee that your personal information will never be compromised.
Below are our multi-point electronic and physical security protocols:
SSL Encryption: Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology is the industry standard for protecting data when computer servers are communicating and transferring data. We use SSL when completing transaction online. SSL helps to ensure that your sensitive personal information, such as your credit card number, is not apprehended by adverse third-parties.
Additionally, we have engaged with Verisign, the preeminent leader in online authentication products and software. Verisign helps us to ensure that your communications with us are secure.
- Credit Card Orders: To minimize unnecessary risk of your sensitive personal information being compromised we do not store your credit card information after an order has been completed. To further minimize this risk, we complete our credit card orders within 24 hours by working directly with the authorizing bank. This enables us to ship products sooner and delete temporarily stored information sooner.
- Telephone Orders: If you would rather transact by telephone you can call us at: 1-888-487-2145 to speak with a sales representative and complete your order.
- Signature Requirements for Delivery: We always insure and register items shipped via mail to their fullest value. Finally, we only ship to physical business or residential addresses and require that a person over 18 years of age sign for the delivery.
