Cookies, web analytics and tracking
Our web servers collect general data pertaining to each Website user, including their IP address, identifiers, domain name, referring web page and the length of time spent and the pages accessed while visiting this Website. This web usage information is collected to help us manage and administer our Website, improve the content of our Website, to measure the effectiveness of our advertising, and customize and improve the Website user experience. Web analytic information is gathered using the following methods: (1) cookies, (2) web beacons (a.k.a. clear gifs), (3) conversion tracking, (4) third party ad serving mechanisms, and (5) general detection and use of your internet protocol (IP) address or domain name. We do not combine any web usage information with information collected offline or from other sources.
Web pages on this site or e-mail messages you receive from us may contain a small graphic image called a web beacon (sometimes called a web bug or clear gif). Web beacons are typically very small (generally 1-by-1 pixel) and invisible to the user, however any electronic image viewed as part of a web page or e-mail message, including an advertisement or HTML content, can act as a web beacon. Web beacons are designed to allow us or a third party to collect certain information and monitor user activity on our site. Collected information can include the IP address of the computer that the web beacon is sent to, the URL of the page the web user comes from, and the time the web beacon is activated (such as when you view the web page, advertisement, or e-mail that contains the web beacon). No personal information is obtained from this tracking, rather just the patterns of usage of our various users may be tracked to provide you with improved service and content based on aggregate or statistical reviews of user site traffic patterns.
Search engines offer a feature called “conversion tracking” which is a way to track clicks to sales from either search results or ads on search engines. Using either web beacons or visible images, depending upon the search engine, the search engine notes and saves information in a cookie with non-personal information such as time of day, browser type, browser language, and IP address with each query. Information is gathered in the aggregate, without unique personal data. Conversion tracking allows the search engine company and Chopard to track clicks to sales, including the number of clicks (“visits”) it takes before a purchase is made and permits us to measure the effectiveness of our search engine participation.
Chopard reserves the right to disclose user information in special cases, when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other Website users, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We may disclose personal information without notice to you in response to a court order or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to respond to an emergency situation.

Chopard will not guarantee that any particular product or service displayed on this Website will be available at any particular location, even if that location has been indicated as a source for that product or service. In the rare case in which an item may become unavailable after you have received confirmation of an order for it, Chopard will contact you, offering you the opportunity to order another item or to cancel your existing order.
The product images on this Website are representative and are not necessarily photographs of the actual product you will receive. While every effort is taken to try to ensure that the colouring, design, style, reference number, description and size of the products in the photographs displayed on the Website are representative of the original products, variations may occur.

Upon submission, your order will be forwarded to Chopard for checking and processing. We will send you confirmation by e-mail that we have received your order. This confirmation does not constitute our acceptance of your order. Once your order and your payment have been cleared, you will receive an e-mail confirming our acceptance of your order (the “Order Confirmation”). A contract of sale is made between you and us at the moment we send you an Order Confirmation. Contracts of sale will neither be filed by us nor accessible to you.
Each Order Confirmation will include full details of your order, including the total price to be charged for the order, including taxes and delivery charges for your chosen delivery option. Please check the Order Confirmation very carefully. If there are any problems with your Order Confirmation, please CONTACT US.

Once your order is processed and ready to ship you will receive by email a shipment notification with the tracking information for your package.
When the shipping date of our pre-sale products approaches, Chopard will send you an email at the email address you provided with your order, and request that you confirm or verify your shipping address. If you do not submit your information within 10 days of Chopard's request, Chopard may, at its sole discretion, cancel your order and provide you a full refund of the amount you paid or continue to attempt to contact you.

Upon signature by an adult confirming your acceptance of the product delivered, responsibility for your purchased goods passes to you. If you have specified a recipient who is not you for delivery purposes (for example as a gift) then you understand and accept that evidence of a signature by such recipient (or at that delivery address) is evidence of delivery and fulfillment of the contract for sale by Chopard and transfer of responsibility to the recipient in the same way as if the product had been delivered to you. We recommend you inspect your package for damage or tampering before signing and accepting it.
If the delivery of your order is delayed, please contact us by email at “CONTACT US". Upon receiving your order, please carefully inspect the contents of the package. If there are any discrepancies between what you ordered and what you received, please let us know and return any incorrect products to us in accordance with our exchange and returns policy.

Shipping to alternate addresses:
If you ship your order to an address that is different than your billing address, as a security measure to protect our clients against fraud we will confirm your credit card has this alternate shipping address on record. To expedite the processing of your order, please call your credit card company and provide them with your alternate shipping address.
Your legal right to cancel
As a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel all or part of your contract for sale for any reason at any time up to 14 days after you receive the products you ordered. Your legal right to cancel does not apply to products that have been engraved, personalized or made to order.
If you cancel your contract for sale we will refund you the price you paid for the products within 14 days of the day on which we receive the products from you (or, if earlier, the day on which we receive proof that you have sent the products to us).
