How we collect your information

Information collected at registration

GIFTSECURE, LLC collects personal information when you register with us and when you use GIFTSECURE services. GIFTSECURE, LLC may combine this information about you with information we obtain from business partners or other third parties. During registration, we require members to give us basic contact information (such as your first name, last name and e-mail addresses, phone numbers), key event information (such as date, event type, location, dress code, etc.) and demographic information (such as your ZIP or postal code). Registration information is collected via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol (https). The information requested on the registration form may change from time to time. Although additional demographic information may be requested at the time of registration, only information marked "required" is necessary for registration and utilization of our services.

Users who register through Facebook agree to share their public Facebook profile, friend list and e-mail address via Facebook's App permissions interface.

Users who give gifts to GIFTSECURE members are not required to register. However, some information is collected during the "Give a Gift" process, including first and last name and e-mail address. This information is associated with the member's account. The e-mail address collected during the “Give a Gift” process is not shared with third parties. It is used by GIFTSECURE, LLC and Site members to communicate with the gift giver regarding their gift.

We do not accept registrations from persons under the age of 18. GIFTSECURE services are available only to persons who are 18 years of age and over. If we learn that a user is under the age of 18, we will terminate the account and delete the user's information. GIFTSECURE, LLC will not be liable for any content or advertisements viewed by minor children in violation of the terms of this agreement.  Parents who create a GIFTSECURE account in order to manage gift giving for an event that is in benefit of a minor may grant that minor access to their account.  In order to send a gift or transfer money to another bank account the user must enter their PayPal account information.  This ensures that only registered adults that have a PayPal account will be able to conduct transactions through the GIFTSECURE platform.  Any gift or exchange of monies that is conducted by a minor using the parent’s PayPal credentials shall be the responsibility of the consenting parent or guardian.

Information collected through use of Gift-secure.com and GIFTSECURE apps.

In addition to the questions you answer when you register for gift-secure.com membership, we collect information necessary to create your events, contacts and reminders. Personal information is collected via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol (https). When you enter this information and publish your event it will remain private to only your contacts that you invite to it.  If you utilize social features (Facebook & Twitter) to announce your event, you agree to make it public and accessible via those networks according to your settings for sharing or following.

GIFTSECURE, LLC also collects system information such as IP addresses (in other words, the location of your computer on the Internet) for system administration, troubleshooting, security, and to examine overall traffic trends. (For example, IP addresses help us determine the percentage of people coming from various search engines, such as Google or Yahoo!) This information, in aggregate form, is recorded for administrative purposes. IP addresses may be linked to personal account information for security purposes, for instance, to prevent spammers from abusing GIFTSECURE, LLC's e-mail features.
