YOUR PRIVACY IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT TO US.
Like most website operators, Giftery.Me 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. Giftery.Me’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Giftery.Me’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Giftery.Me may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Giftery.Me also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on http://giftery.me blog posts. Giftery.Me 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 Giftery.Me’s websites choose to interact with Giftery.Me in ways that require Giftery.Me to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Giftery.Me gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a blog at http://giftery.me to provide a username and email address.
PROTECTION OF CERTAIN PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION
Giftery.Me 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 Giftery.Me’s behalf or to provide services available at Giftery.Me’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 Giftery.Me’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Giftery.Me 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, Giftery.Me discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Giftery.Me believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Giftery.Me, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of http://giftery.me and have supplied your email address, Giftery.Me 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 Giftery.Me 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. Giftery.Me takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
