The questions vary in nature in these surveys, but you can always choose to participate without providing information about yourself – and participation in the survey is also completely voluntary. Your access to SwissDiamond.com does not depend on your participation in the surveys, but we value your participation greatly, as we conduct the surveys to improve user experiences and to improve SwissDiamond.com. You should never respond to surveys from SwissDiamond.com that do not have a clear and familiar sender address.

In order to participate, you may be required to accept that SWISS DIAMOND INTERNATIONAL or others may contact you at a later time. This will be clearly stated in the competition/special offer. Participation in competitions and special offers is always voluntary.
