Please remember that this Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that we don’t own or control or to people we don’t employ or manage. When you visit websites or mobile applications to which we link, or if you click on third party advertisements that appear on our sites, you are interacting with a third party that operates under its own privacy and security policies. For example, a third party website will have its own policy regarding the use of cookies and web beacons or collection of your information. If you choose to obtain products or services from such third parties, the data collected by the third party is governed by that third party’s privacy policy. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of each and every third party that collects personal information about you.

Please note that our privacy policy is subject to change at any time without notice, hence we encourage you to review this policy periodically.

 

COLLECTION, USE, SHARING AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We collect information about you when you register for a GiftKard account, such as your name, phone number, email address, etc. In addition to the information collected from you during registration, we will also collect information you provide to us through: online surveys & contests, compiling and sharing lists, ordering and processing purchases, technical and customer service communications, your voluntary submission of information, email correspondence with us, acceptance of our applications that interacts with third party sites or services (such as Facebook or Twitter), and any other way information is provided to us.

You also may give us permission to access your information in other services. For example, you may link your Facebook, or Twitter account to GiftKard, which allows us to obtain information from these accounts (like your friends or contacts). The information we get from those services often depends on your settings or their privacy policies, so please be sure to check what those are.

When you use the Site or Mobile App, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider), may collect information indirectly and automatically about your activities (e.g., by way of cookies). A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to a user’s browser from a web server and is eventually stored on a user’s computer hard drive. This anonymous information is maintained distinctly and is not linked to the personal information you submit to GiftKard. Giftkard.in places both permanent and temporary cookies in your computer’s hard drive. The anonymous information will be used for GiftKard’s understanding of how the Site is used and for other statistical purposes, for system administration and to personalize your experience. GiftKard may also collect information related to access times, browser type, and your IP address for tracking usage patterns and, if necessary, deny service in accordance with our policies listed here and elsewhere.

We shall not share any of your personal information with third parties without your explicit consent. We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent and we only use your information as described in the Privacy Policy. However, in situations when GiftKard is legally obligated to disclose information to the government or other third parties, GiftKard will do so. We view protection of your privacy as a very important community principle. We understand clearly that you and your information are our most important assets. We store and process your information on computers that are protected by physical as well as technological security devices. We use third parties to verify and certify our privacy principles. If you object to your information being transferred or used in this way please do not use the site.

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you.

SHARED PERSONAL INFORMATION:

You are required to submit your personal information at the time of making an online purchase of Gift Cards. GiftKard uses an online payment gateway that is operated by a third party and the personal information that you share with GiftKard is transferred and shared with such third party payment gateway operator. The said operator may also have access to your online purchase history/details that you make.

Extremely sensitive information like you credit-card details are transacted upon secure sites digitally under encryption, thereby providing the highest possible degree of care available as per current technology. You are advised, however, that internet technology is not 100% safe and you should exercise discretion on using the same.

 

SECURITY

The security of your Personal Information is important to us and we take the utmost care to ensure that your information is not compromised. GiftKard uses secure socket layer (“SSL”) technology to protection your information. SSL encrypts your order information as additional protection against the decoding of that information by anyone other than us. However, despite all reasonable security precautions and processes, such as password protection, encryption technology, and use of firewall technology, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect all information we collect and process, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from our Sites, and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we will take commercially reasonable precautions to protect its security on our systems.
