In general, you can visit this Website without identifying who you are or revealing any information about yourself. Information collected online can generally be categorized as anonymous or personally identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be connected to the identity of a specific individual. An example of anonymous information is the fact that, while this Website may record the number of visits to a particular page that occur in a given period of time, it does not necessarily tell us the names or other identifying information of every visitor. Personally identifiable information is information that specifically identifies a particular user, such as name, address, or phone number. You would provide us this personally identifiable information when you become a registered user of our Website. Many users of this Website will choose not to provide any personally identifiable information; therefore, those individuals are anonymous to us, and any data collected about their use of this Website is anonymous information. Other users of this Website may choose to become a registered user and enroll in sweepstakes, games or contests or otherwise receive email communications about products and services from us.
When you visit our Website, we collect certain technical and routing information about your computer. For example, we log environmental variables such as browser type, operating system and CPU speed, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your originating Internet Service Provider, to try to bring you the best possible service. We also record search requests and results to try to ensure the accuracy and efficiency of our search engine. We use your IP address to track your use of the Website, including pages visited and the time spent on each page. We collect this information and use it to measure the use of this Website and to improve its content and performance. All of the information that is automatically submitted to us by your browser is considered anonymous information. To the extent we share such information with third parties, it is not traceable to any particular user and will not be used to contact you.
When you become a registered user, we may use your personally identifiable information to provide a requested service to you, such as enrolling you in a sweepstakes, game or contest or send you email communications regarding products and services. We also may use the personally identifiable information that we collect for generating statistical studies, conducting marketing research, improving products and services, sending you surveys, and notifying you of new products and any other changes to our site or services that may affect you. When you submit personally identifiable information to us, you understand that you are agreeing to allow us to access, store, and use that information for those purposes.
If at any time you do not wish to receive offers and e-mails from us, we ask that you tell us. You may remove your name from our mailing list by sending us an e-mail addressed to Subscribe@thegiftinsider.com and indicating in the subject line "No emails."
We operate secure data networks protected by industry standard firewall and password protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary, and only authorized individuals have access to the personally identifiable information provided by our users. We do not, however, guarantee that unauthorized, inadvertent disclosure will never occur.
Customer lists and information are properly considered assets of a business. Accordingly, if we merge with another entity or if we sell our assets to another entity, our customer lists and information, including personally identifiable information you have provided us, would be included among the assets that would be transferred.
Persons under the age of thirteen (13) are not authorized to use the Website and we do not specifically collect information about children. However, we are concerned about the safety of children and their use of the Internet. Therefore, in accordance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, we will never knowingly request or solicit personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without prior verifiable parental consent. In the event that we receive actual knowledge that we have collected such personal information without the requisite and verifiable parental consent, we will delete that information from our database as quickly as practicable.
