WEBSITE VISITORS
Like most website operators, Dope Gift Ideas collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Dope Gift Ideas’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Dope Gift Ideas’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Dope Gift Ideas may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Dope Gift Ideas also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on https://giftery.me blog posts. Dope Gift Ideas only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below.
 
GATHERING OF PERSONAL-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Certain visitors to Dope Gift Ideas’s websites choose to interact with Dope Gift Ideas in ways that require Dope Gift Ideas to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Dope Gift Ideas gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at https://giftery.me to provide a username and email address.
 
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Dope Gift Ideas discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Dope Gift Ideas’s behalf or to provide services available at Dope Gift Ideas’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Dope Gift Ideas’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Dope Gift Ideas will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Dope Gift Ideas discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Dope Gift Ideas believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Dope Gift Ideas, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of https://giftery.me and have supplied your email address, Dope Gift Ideas may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Dope Gift Ideas and our products. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Dope Gift Ideas takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
