2. TYPES OF INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Giftwell collects Personal Information and Anonymous Information from you when you use the Services, including when you visit the Website, and/or send us information or communications. “Personal Information” means information that allows someone to
Personal Information You Provide to Us – We may collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily through your access and/or use of the Service, including your name, address, and contact information such as phone numbers or e-mail addresses. We also retain information on your behalf, such as your search criteria. If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect
your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply, and any information that you submit to us. When you participate in one of our surveys, we may collect additional profile information. We may also collect Personal Information at other points in our Website that state that Personal Information is being collected. If you provide us informa-tion over phone or fax, we may add that information to the information we have collected.
you choose to disable cookies, some areas of our Website may not work properly. Like most Internet services, we may automatically gather this Personal Information and store it in log files each time you visit our Website or use the Application. Web pages may contain electronic images (called a “single-pixel GIF” or “web beacon”) that are used to count users who have visited that page, or to access certain cookies.
3. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
In general, we use your Personal Information to respond to your requests as submitted through the Services and for Vendor Partners to expect your arrival. In addition, we may use your Personal Information to determine your purchase preferences, to better under-stand how the Websites, and other Services are used; and to send you administrative e-mail or SMS text notifications.
We may share your Personal Information with third parties (including our Vendor Partners) to fulfill your requests for Products, and we may share your Personal Information with third parties who perform services for us or on our behalf (including our payment pro-cessor or our service providers who provide support for the Services). These third parties are required not to use your Personal Information other than to provide the services requested by Giftwell. You expressly consent to the sharing of your Personal Infor-mation with these third parties.
We may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We may use this Anonymous Information to analyze request patterns, usage patterns and other statistical data so that we may enhance our Services, including our Website. Giftwell reserves the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in its discretion.
We may disclose your Personal Information if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary (a) to comply with relevant laws, rules or regulations or to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on Giftwell; or (b) to protect and defend the rights or pro-perty of Giftwell or users of our Services.
5. HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We use reasonable measures to maintain the security of your Personal Information. Giftwell does not directly store or manage your credit card number. While Giftwell has numerous safety features built in to reduce the risk of unauthorized charges, Giftwell does not have direct control or responsibility for the credit card data.
Please be advised, however, that the Internet, mobile devices, and other various networking communication media are not entirely secure, and your information may therefore be subject to interception or loss, which is beyond our control. Accordingly, Giftwell assumes no responsibility or liability for disclosure of your information (personally identifiable or otherwise) due to errors in trans-
mission, unauthorized third party access or other causes beyond Giftwell’s control.
