How we process data
The Jewellery Channel Ltd acts as both a data processor and a data controller for your personal information. This means that we process your data and we use third parties to process your data on our behalf. We audit all third parties to ensure they meet the standards of data protection required under the GDPR. The third party data processors that we mainly use are:

To deliver products and services to you, it is sometimes necessary for The Jewellery Channel to share your data outside of the European Economic Area. This will typically occur when service providers are located outside the EEA, including our Parent Company VGL Group (https://www.vglgroup.com), or if you are based outside the EEA. These transfers are subject to special rules under data protection laws.
If this happens, we will ensure that the transfer will be compliant with data protection law and all personal data will be secure. Our standard practice is to use ‘standard data protection clauses’ which have been approved by the European Commission for such transfers. Those clauses can be accessed at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en.
We are committed to ensuring that information is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.

Controlling your personal information
