We, HELMSMAN CRYSTAL, agree to follow the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requirements for citizens/residents of Switzerland and EU (European Union) countries. 

If our Privacy Policy and other terms and conditions go against the GDPR requirements, the latter has more control. 

The GDPR offers 8 rights to citizens/residents of EU countries that HELMSMAN CRYSTAL must abide by. 

Here are the 8 rights:

Information Rights  

With the GDPR terms, we are only allowed to collect your personal information (name, shipping address, email address, credit card details, telephone number, info for custom orders, etc...) if you purchase our products. 

This information permits us to fulfill and process your order(s), as well as to update you on the status of your order(s).

Rectification Rights

Erasure Rights

If you want to erase your information, you can inform us by sending an email. 

However, you have to specify the reason or circumstance for the erasure. 

Depending on several factors, we may or may not accept your request. These factors include legal rights to preserve your data under certain laws, as well as legal rights to hold the information you want to be deleted. 

To be sure, we will inform you whether we accept your erasure request or not.

Process Restriction Rights

If you want to stop the process of your personal information for certain reasons, you have the right to go to HELMSMAN CRYSTAL and ask them to suspend it. 

One reason for that is if you want to make sure your data is accurate. Or, you object to us using your data. 

In the latter case, we have to first verify if we have legitimate and overriding grounds to keep and use your information. 

If there is no reason to hold your information, your data process will be restricted. However, we can keep some of your information that respects the restriction process. 

Data Portability Rights

You have the right to keep the data stored with us secure and safe, while still being usable. This means we can copy, transport, and move your data but in the safest and most secure way possible. 

To take part in this data portability right, send us a request at To make it easier for us, make sure you put "REQUEST FOR PORTABLE DATA" as the subject.

Object Processing Rights

You have the right to object to the use of your personal information for marketing purposes. e.g. using your personal information, emails, or website content to advance direct marketing. 

That said, that right might not include using your data for public and/or legitimate interests - statistics, history research, science...

To claim your object processing rights, send us a request at The subject should be "OBJECTION TO PROCESSING". Also, tell us if you object to marketing purposes only or all the other processes. 

Automated Decision-Making Rights

We use personal information for profiling customers. This is usually done for direct marketing. 

Now, when we send our advertisements and/or emails to you, it's done through automated means. The same is true if we respond to your action to that advertisement/email. 

Do you want more information about our automated decision-making means? 

Do you want to request a non-automated response if you follow up on one of our automated advertisements/emails?

If so, contact us at The subject should be titled "AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING". 

California Consumer Privacy Act

For California, we agree to follow the CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) requirements. 

The California Consumer Privacy Act offers rights to our Californian consumers that HELMSMAN CRYSTAL must abide by.

Here are the rights:

It's your right to ask for disclosure on parts of our collection, as well as how we use your personal information. Here's a list of some of the information we disclose (once your request is verified): 

Our collection of your personal information. 

Where we collected your personal information. 

Our collection of specific information about you.

The purpose for collecting and/or selling your personal information. 

Your personal information that we disclosed or sold for business purposes. 

The third-party businesses that we disclosed or sold your information to for business purposes. 

It's your right to ask us to delete any of the personal information that we've collected. Once your request is verified, we will remove that information from our service providers and records. However, we won't delete the information if we need it to:

Complete your transactions.

Provide the services or products that you asked for. 

Honor a returns policy agreement we made with you.

Detect against deceptive, illegal, fraudulent, and malicious activity. 

Debug our products that diminish functionality. 

Exercise rights are provided by the law.

Follow the requirements of the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act.

Align your expectations for internal users. 

Observe legal obligations. 

Lawfully provide what you needed when you gave us the information. 

 To take part in the rights we've mentioned above, email us a request at

Remember, these requests are only verifiable if you (or an authorized agent working for you) make them. 

How do you authorize someone to do it for you? 

You have to provide that person with written and signed permission. You also have to verify your identity and directly confirm the permission with us. 

As the authorized agent, you don't need to be written and signed permission if you have a license. Or, if you are doing it on behalf of your child (he/she has to be a minor, though). 

How does the verification process work? 

Here's how:

Accounts Protected by Password - If your account has a password, you have to pass password authentication. If the password is correct, your request will be verified. 

Accounts Not Protected by Password - If your account doesn't have a password, we will resort to asking for information about you found in our records. E.g. email address or zip code billing. 

Things to note:

If you cannot identify or authorize yourself, we won't accept your request to see our collection disclosure or delete personal information. 

You can make 2 requests a year without having to pay a fee. 

You don't need an account to make one of these requests. 

We only use specific personal information to verify the identity of the requestor. 

It takes 45 days before we respond to a request made to us. If we need more time to verify the request, we will keep you informed as to why we extended the time. (This can take around 90 days.)

We respond to your request through your account's email. If you don't have an account, we respond through mail delivery or (if you like) electronically. 

If we accept your collection disclosure request, know that we only disclose information from the last 12 months. 

If we don't accept your request, you can be sure that we will explain the reason for our decline. 

You have every right to exercise your CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) rights. We won't ever discriminate or disregard those rights. We won't discriminate/disregard your rights by:

Preventing you from availing of our services and/or products. 

Giving you different price rates for our services and/or products. (This includes discounts, penalties, and other benefits.)

Offering a lower level of quality to our services and/or products. 

Suggesting to give you lower quality services and/or products, as well as suggesting different price rates. 

As permitted by CCPA, we can provide financial incentives that result in different levels of quality and/or price rates. If you want to participate in this program, you will have to send us consent. Don't worry, you can always revoke your participation any time you want. 

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

Every now and then, we make changes to this Privacy Policy. 

If the changes we make are material, you'll know about them. We will make sure that you're informed by posting about it on our website and/or sending you an email about the changes.
