As a company, we always place customers before dollars. We understand that the information that you share with us is extremely personal, and we go the extra mile to maintain its privacy. Given how intimate gifting as an experience is, we ensure that the secrecy of your gift is maintained, and no details pertaining to it are posted on our portal, either directly, or via Facebook, without your consent.
Information gathered via Facebook
We do not store your Facebook password, and any other such confidential information. We collect information about the likes, and interests of your Facebook friends to ensure that only relevant gifts are recommended for them. The sole purpose of obtaining this information is to enable you to gift them in accordance with their likes. None of this information is ever shared with, or sold to any third parties for marketing purposes, without your consent. Also, when you click on buy, we do NOT post on your Facebook wall, without your consent – we understand that gifts are meant to be secrets, and we make all efforts to ensure that they remain this way.

How you can access your information
Your choices about collection and use of your information
- You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but that may result in you being unable to use certain features of our website because such information may be required in order for you to register as a member; purchase products or services; participate in a contest, promotion, survey, or sweepstakes; ask a question; post a comment to a blog; or initiate other transactions on our website.
- If you register on our website, you will be given the choice as to whether you want to receive email messages about special offers. You may modify your choice at any time on the My Account page, available through a link on the home page of our website. You also will be given the opportunity, in any commercial e-mail that we send to you, to opt out of receiving such messages in the future. It may take up to 10 days for us to process an opt-out request. We may send you other types of transactional and relationship e-mail communications, such as service announcements, administrative notices, and surveys, without offering you the opportunity to opt out of receiving them.
How we protect your personal information
We take appropriate security measures (including physical, electronic and procedural measures) to help safeguard your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. For example, only authorized employees are permitted to access personal information, and they may do so only for permitted business functions. We want you to feel confident using our website to transact business. However, no system can be completely secure. Therefore, although we take steps to secure your information, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information, searches, or other communications will always remain secure. Users should also take care with how they handle and disclose their personal information and should avoid sending personal information through insecure email.
We may provide areas on our websites where you can post information about yourself and others and communicate with others. Such postings are governed by our Terms of Service. In addition, such postings may appear on other websites or when searches are executed on the subject of your posting. Also, whenever you voluntarily disclose personal information on publicly-viewable web pages, that information will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages. We cannot control who reads your posting or what other users may do with the information you voluntarily post, so we encourage you to exercise discretion and caution with respect to your personal information.
Our website is a general audience site, and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13.
