Product Availability and Pricing
If you're interested in a piece of jewelry that is currently on back order, email us and we can tell you when the item will be back in stock. Sometimes with the volume of orders we receive, an item may go out of stock before we are able to post a notification on the Site. If this happens, we will contact you directly to discuss possible options.
Data, including prices, may be inaccurately displayed on our Site due to system or typographical errors. While we make every attempt to avoid these errors, they may occur. We reserve the right to correct any and all errors when they do occur, and we do not honor inaccurate or erroneous prices. If a product's listed price is lower than its actual price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before shipping the product or cancel the order and notify you of such cancellation. If the order has been shipped, you agree to either return the product or pay the difference between the actual and charged prices. Our prices are also subject to change without notice. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Jewelry Consultants at info[@]gourik[.]com.
We do not negotiate prices on our products and all our prices are final.
We do not entertain “Comparison Purchasing”
To keep our prices low, we do not allow comparison purchasing. Comparison purchasing is the act of buying several items with the intent of keeping the one you like best and returning the remainder. This causes undue restocking and inventory overhead and can be very costly. To confirm the quality of a jewelry item, please contact us at info[@]gourik[.]com, and we would be happy to help you make your choice.
Information on our Site
At Gourik, we make every attempt to ensure that our online catalog is as accurate and complete as possible. In order to give you the opportunity to view our products in great detail, some products may appear larger or smaller than their actual size in our photographs; and since every computer monitor is set differently, color and size may vary slightly.
Our objective is to provide you with as much information and detail about your prospective purchase as possible so that you can see the beauty and shape of a particular item. In compliance with industry standards and FTC regulations, Gourik states that carat total weight in all purchases may vary 0.05 carats from stated weight.
On the Site, we provide the measurement of our products based on our manufacturing specifications. Slight tolerances may be accounted for based on finishing during the manufacturing.

Third Party Content
• Third Parties and information sharing.
Third-party Service Providers. We use third-party service providers in various aspects of our business, and we may share your personal information with them as necessary for them to perform their functions. For example, service providers may assist us with order fulfillment, package delivery, credit card issuance, the providing of warranties, credit card processing, customer service, website functionality or promotions. They may collect personal or non-personal statistics about our users, and have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for other purposes. In addition, we may use third-party service providers to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on this site or to present special offers to you when you visit our website. They may collect anonymous information about your visits to our Web site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other Web sites to target advertisements or offers for goods and services. This anonymous information is collected through the use of a pixel tag, which is industry standard technology used by most major web sites. No personally identifiable information is collected or used in this process. They do not know the name, phone number, address, email address, or any personally identifying information about the user.
Business Transfers/Transitions. As we continue to develop our business, we could buy, license or sell assets. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the business assets involved. In the event of a sale of our business (in whole or in part), a divestiture, merger, consolidation, restructuring, or asset sale, it is likely that one of the assets acquired by the purchaser would be the personal and non-personal information that we have collected. Under this situation, customer information would be transferred to the third party purchaser.
Business partners. When you make purchases or engage in promotions offered through our website, by telephone, or otherwise, we may share personal information with the businesses with which we partner to offer you those products, services, promotions, contests and/or sweepstakes. When you elect to engage in a particular merchant’s offer or program, you authorize us to provide your e-mail address and other information to that merchant.
Other Disclosures. We may disclose personal information when we are required or requested to do so by law, court order, subpoena, legal process, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency to establish, exercise, enforce or apply our rights and agreements; defend against legal claims, or when we believe in good faith that disclosing this information is necessary or advisable, including, for example, to protect the rights, property or safety of our website, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. We may also share information in order to investigate, prevent or take action regarding illegal activities.
o With your Consent. We will share personally identifiable information with certain specific third party marketers when you accept an offer from them or otherwise consent for us to do so. Such personally identifiable information may include your name, credit/debit card number and expiration date, physical and email addresses and other billing information, as well as other information that you consent to provide.
o Your Personal information protection. We understand the importance of securing and protecting personal information. We maintain appropriate safeguards to secure your personal information. To help protect the integrity and privacy of the personal information you provide, we use encryption technology to transmit personal information over the Internet to our servers. For example, when collecting credit card information, we offer secure-server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to thwart someone form intercepting and misusing it. We also use “firewalls,” secure socket layers and other security technology to protect your information and our network. We secure your personal information on servers located in controlled, secure environments, protected from unauthorized access, use or alteration. Our employees have limited access to your personal information based on their responsibilities and all employees are instructed to protect the confidentiality of your personal information as described in the Policy. We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. You should also take care with how you handle and disclose your personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure e-mail.
