When you updating the theme actually your theme setting won’t be lost. The theme setting will be lost when you switch to other themes or switch using the child theme. May i know how are you updating theme before?

I’ve been checked your website but before i doing testing in there, can i disable certain plugin in there? Because it seems the customizer doesn’t work in there.

I’ve been checking your website previously and try to update the theme via theme dashboard. In this case, i found some theme setting lost in there. Regarding this issue, i will need to do further investigation but actually this issue more related to WordPress side. Also, i usually updating theme from FTP or SSH to avoid switch into other themes that i assume will cause this issue.
For the further update please always make a backup for your theme setting and widget setting before doing an update. For theme setting, you can use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/customizer-export-import/ and this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/widget-importer-exporter/ for widget setting. We also use those plugins and you may need to try using FTP or SSH when doing theme update.
Let us know if you have further question.
