 To improve your customer experience, we need to collect and store certain information, such as your name, email address, postal address, and sometimes your ID information. We also need to share your information with our trusted partners, such as our shipping providers for delivery of your packages, or our financial providers for payment of your purchases. This allows us to provide you with a fully secure and fast service. We are committed to collecting, processing, storing, and sharing your information securely. We also make sure that the companies we work with are as careful with your information as we are. Listening to our customers also allows us to make changes and make things easier when possible.



 We organize our product catalog according to the products our customers are looking for. This allows us to continue to offer you exceptional second hand pieces in excellent condition.


If you choose to receive marketing emails from Cresus, we will be able to notify you when unique products are available for sale, when special offers are made, or when certain product lines are highlighted.
