Rarely do we encounter identical gemstones, diamonds or pearls; therefore Ecksand creations are one of a kind. When ordering one or more of the same item, the gems might slightly differ from the online picture. While jewels shipped should match in basic form, shape, and appearance, there is always a chance that models will be updated with the most resembling set of gems. The differences might not be visible to the naked eye. If there are any inquiries concerning the disclaimer please do not hesitate to contact [email protected] While every effort is made to ensure that the color, design, and style of the jewel displayed on ecksand.com are representative of the original products, slight variations may occur for technical and other reasons.
Ecksand respects its user’s right to be informed about the collection and processing of their personal data. In processing data that can personally identify you, directly or indirectly, we apply the principle of strict necessity. For this reason, ecksand.com has been designed in such a way that the use of your personal data will be minimal and will not exceed the original purpose for which your personal data was collected and/or processed. In particular, we do not disclose your identity when the purpose for which your personal data is being processed can be achieved by using anonymous aggregate information.
