Advertising, marketing and your communications preferences
I send our Newsletter to you if you have opted in to receive it or sign up to the pop up box. On my website, I always try hard to make it really clear what I’m doing and what communications you will be sent, whether it’s you deciding to sign up to the Newsletter or as part of the purchase journey – and you have a right at any time to change your mind and say no thank–you and opt out. The easiest way to opt out is to use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the communication. (But I’d be really sorry to see you go.) From time to time, I select winners for special discounts that are optional for you to use. I will use your email to contact you and deliver the discount coupon to you. Also, I will use your email address to send you discount coupons and gifts.
Disclosures of your personal data
- Suppliers and service providers (such as technology service providers, payment processing and fraud prevention providers, manufacturers and post and courier services);
- Auditors and professional advisers like bankers, lawyers, accountants and insurers; and
- Government, regulators and law enforcement.
MyCosmicAlly.com uses third party payment processor PayPal to process payments made for products via the Website. All online payments will be conducted in accordance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) data security standards (which are high!) and your billing information (which is only used by these payment processors for the purpose of performing fraud protection) is encrypted before being communicated to them. Subject to the below exceptions, your credit card details are communicated directly from your browser to these payment processors – MyCosmicAlly.com never (ever!) sees your full Permanent Account Number (PAN). This means that the payment form is either off-site or displayed in a frame on the payment page.
Payments via Credit Card: Credit card payments are encrypted and processed under the protection of Alpha Bank. None of your information is stored on MyCosmicAlly.com and I never share any confidential information with third party sellers. All credit card transactions are processed and verified securely through Alpha Bank only.
I only store the tokens required to identify the transaction with PayPal, issue refunds and identify transactions made using PayPal.
I have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. In addition, I limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. I have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
I will only keep your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, I consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether I can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements. In some circumstances you can ask me to delete your data; see Your legal rights below for further information.
Your legal rights
If the General Data Protection Regulation applies to you because you are in the European Union, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data:
- The right of access – that’s a right to make what’s known as a ‘data subject access request’ for copy of the personal data we hold about you;
- The right to rectification – that’s a right to make me correct personal data about you that may be incomplete or inaccurate;
- The right to erasure – that’s also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’ where in certain circumstances you can ask me to delete the personal data we have about you (unless there’s an overriding legal reason I need to keep it);
- The right to restrict processing – that’s a right for you in certain circumstances to ask me to suspend processing personal data;
- The right to data portability – that’s a right for you to ask me for a copy of your personal data in a common format (for example, a .csv file);
- The right to object – that’s a right for you to object to us processing your personal data (for example, if you object to us processing your data for direct marketing); and
- Rights in relation to automated decision-making and profiling – that’s a right you have for me to be transparent about any profiling we do, or any automated decision-making.
These rights are subject to certain rules around when you can exercise them. You can see a lot more information on them, if you are interested, on the UK Information Commissioner’s Office website. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact me. You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, I may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, I may refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances. I may need to request specific information from you to help me confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. I may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. I try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, I will notify you and keep you updated.

Care instructions (for jewelry)
The semi-precious stones embedded in your jewel are of natural origin. That means their color and their texture may change over time. Remember that they grow and evolve together with you.
The following practical suggestions will help to keep your jewel in the best condition for years to come.
For your Cosmic Ally
• Always store your jewel separately from your other jewelry
• Take off your jewel before swimming, showering or doing housework
• Avoid cleaning your jewel with water or chemicals
• Avoid direct contact with sweat, perfumes, heat, hairsprays or any other cosmetics
• Avoid wearing your jewel underneath clothing. The jewel needs to breathe. Also the fabric may wear off the protective varnish.
For earrings & bracelets:
• For earrings that have a mix of clay, metal elements and crystals: To keep your earrings looking shiny, gently rub the metal with a soft fabric cloth, a felt jewelry cloth is ideal. Because the earrings have clay elements, you cannot use soap and water. Store them in a special place, away from direct sunlight and you won’t need to polish them often.
• For earrings and bracelets that have only metal elements and crystals: to keep them looking shiny, use mild dish soap and water and gently rub them with a soft fabric. Gently wipe them dry and allow to air dry on a soft fabric. Because some of the metals are plated, be gentle as you rub them. You can damage them if you wash too often or rub the surface vigorously.
Returns & exchanges
- I gladly accept returns and exchanges. Just contact me within: 3 days from the delivery day (I can check it online with the tracking number and confirm the delivery day with you). Ship items back to me within: 14 days after delivery. You do not need to give any reason for returning the item, provided that you do so within this deadline.
- Buyers must ship the item back to me with tracking number and in a safe package as it was delivered, just like I sent it to you.
- If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
- Items should be returned with the original product tags attached and with all paperwork/packaging.
- When you ask for a replacement of a jewel, you will pay additionally 11€ shipping cost as the free shipping is granted only for the completed orders.
- I don’t return money if the buyer didn’t get the order from the post office and the package has returned to me. I will send it back to the buyer after they pay the 11€ payment of the shipping cost (I will send a payment link). In that case, you lose the right to return the jewels as it took too long to reach you and likely I’ve already paid the VAT to the tax office.
- If your order is already in transit, you cannot cancel it before it reaches you. (This means it has left my hands and is has not yet arrived in yours.) When you get the order, then, you can return it.
- If the jewel delivered broken, I will issue you a full refund. Please provide a photo with your jewel that shows the damage.
- Monies are refunded within 30 days of package delivery.
Buyers are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I’m not responsible for delays due to customs for any reason.
Purchases are ready for shipping between 1-2 business days. I will email you the mail tracking of your package and the photo of the package from the mail office.
Shipping cost: 9,95€ for all over the world with tracking number.
Layaway Payment Plan
How it works:
- Contact me and provide your full name and the jewel you are interested in.
- Layaway payments are 3 equal installments over a 45-day period.
- A listing will be created for your 3 payments. I will provide you the links and the dates where the payments are to be made by you.
- All the payments must be paid within 24-hours of receiving their respective links. Please note the dates in your calendar, however, I will also send you a reminder email.
- Your first installment must be paid within 24-hours as your deposit. You will be sent an invoice of your payment to the email address provided. If this is not paid within 24-hours, your plan will be cancelled without notice.
- You can cancel your payment plan any time. But please note the deposit is non-refundable. If you have paid the second installment then cancel your plan, I will refund the money of your second installment.
- I will send the jewel after the third payment is completed.
- If you do not proceed with the second or third payment, your plan will be canceled.
- When you enter into the Layaway payment plan, you agree with all the stated terms.
