When you use our website, both we and certain third parties (such as our advertising networks, digital advertising partners and social media platforms) may collect personal information about your online activities, over time and across third-party websites. In some of these cases, the  web browsers allow you to instruct them to send Do Not Track (‘DNT’) signals to websites you visit. DNTs inform those sites of your non-authorization to  track your online activities. At present, philippepetra.com is not designed to respond to all types of DNT signals or similar mechanisms from browsers as there is no common, industry-accepted standard for doing so. Thus, such information may continue to be tracked on our site and used to maintain our website’s functionality, as well as to provide our company with analytics as  described in this Privacy Policy even if your browser sends us a DNT signal. However, when a relevant DNT signal is recognised, our team undertakes  suppressing the third-party tags that are used to recognise your computer once you navigate away from our site, currently  used for Philippe Petra advertisements.  You can visit the previous section, ‘Your Rights and Choices’, to become informed about the different options you have in terms of how personal information gathered is handled.

Should the customer’s location be within the  European Union’s jurisdiction (‘EU’), any applicable legal requirements will be complied with to provide adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to recipients in countries outside of the EU.

The diamonds and metals used in the creation of our pieces come directly from mines , reputable dealers as well as from recycled sources which, to the best of our knowledge, comply with the highest ethical standards of mining practices. Furthermore, the company individually screens its suppliers, thus ensuring that the codes of conduct are  in line with one another. Understanding the social, economic and environmental impacts of the mining and processing of precious materials is one of the company’s main priorities, in order to create a positive impact along the supply chain, all the way from the mine to Customers.

At Philippe Petra, complete integrity is a value highly appreciated and which is kept throughout its process of production, servicing and delivery, including with regards to the diamonds and materials used, all the while ensuring the highest quality. Therefore, to ensure the diamonds used on Philippe Petra products are conflict free, they are only sourced from countries that are full participants in the Kimberley Process (KP) Certification Scheme.

Through measures such as the KP, which tracks diamonds from mine to market, the diamond industry in partnership with Governments, the United Nations and NGOs controls diamond exports to avoid trade of illegal diamonds.

 

PPOB, wanting to further ensure that such illegal trades are avoided, takes additional steps to the KP. Specifically, PPOB has set a careful chain of custody controls and advocates for stronger global standards with the aim of ensuring that human rights and the environment are protected. In addition, the company is a strong supporter of local communities in which it operates and does so by  hiring locally, providing robust job training and ensuring fair wage practices at its cutting and polishing facilities.
