Registration and Personally Identifiable Information
The Data concerning the User is collected to allow the Owner to provide its services, as well as for the following purposes: Access to third party services' accounts, Analytics, Contacting the User, Managing contacts and sending messages, Interaction with external social networks and platforms, Social features, Registration and authentication, Managing support and contact requests, Content commenting, Infrastructure monitoring, Commercial affiliation, Traffic optimization and distribution, Advertising, Displaying content from external platforms, Hosting and backend infrastructure and Handling payments.
Gifties LTD does not collect any personally identifiable information about you unless you choose to provide it to us, either by contacting us and providing us with such information, or through registration at our Site. Site registration is a feature we may offer in the future and if we do, it will be completely optional. You do not and will not have to register in order to use the Site or Services or download any Applications.
We will use personally identifiable information for the purpose(s) for which you provided the information. For example, we will use your email address and mobile number, respectively, to respond to an email/SMS inquiry you have made.
When you install and register the Gifties LTD App, you will be asked to allow us access to your mobile device’s address book (collectively, "Personal Information"). A copy of the phone numbers and names in your address book (but not emails, notes or any other personal information in your address book) will be stored on our servers. This type of services makes it possible to manage a database of email contacts, phone contacts or any other contact information to communicate with the User. These services may also collect data concerning the date and time when the message was viewed by the User, as well as when the User interacted with it, such as by clicking on links included in the message. WE DO NOT SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES IN ANY WAY.
In addition, we may also create a function in the future that will use this data to synchronize your address book across your multiple devices. The copy of your address book (names and phones) is stored on a live database. This database does not have a "historical backup". If you delete the address book from our servers (more about this below), it will be deleted instantly and permanently.
Gifties LTD may interact with your phone's SMS inbox, placing incoming messages in your inbox or reading the contents of the activation SMS sent to you by Gifties LTD. WE WILL NOT ACCESS THE CONTENTS OF ANY OTHER SMS.
Gifties LTD might store text, audio, image, video and contact messages on our servers, until they are read by you (and thus, saved on your device), or until your account is terminated (more about this below).
Collection of Non Personally Identifiable Information
We automatically collect IP addresses, website usage and application usage information from you when you visit our Site or download Applications. When you download and use Applications, we may also collect your “unique device ID” or “UDID,” which is a number uniquely associated with your mobile device. We cannot use the UDID to identify you personally; rather this information helps us evaluate how end users use our website and applications, and permits us to enhance those sites and applications. Additionally we might use other identifiers as the “MAC address” and the “Apple Advertiser ID”.
We may use the information collected about you in the following ways:
- To maintain, operate, provide and enhance our Site and Services.
- To allow us to personalize the content and target the advertising that you and others see based on personal characteristics, usage patterns and/or preferences.
- To provide advertisers and other third parties with aggregate information about our user base and its usage patterns.
We may combine the non-personally identifiable information that we collect about you from your use of the Site and Services with other non-personally identifiable information that you provide to us in connection with your use of other Gifties LTD products, services and websites.
We use third-party network advertisers, to deliver ads to you on our behalf. These network advertisers may be supplied with or have access to your non personally identifiable information (such as IP address, UDID and other above-mentioned identifiers).
As stated above, we do not collect personally identifiable information unless you provide it to us. However, we do still want you to understand the limited circumstances under which your personally identifiable information could be disclosed if you do provide it to us.
We may also disclose personally identifiable information to a successor acquirer or other related entity, in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, or when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires us to do so.
Gifties LTD Application Marketing
Gifties LTD buys mobile advertising space on behalf of certain mobile application providers (Clients). When you click on a Client ad or application link delivered by Gifties LTD, Gifties LTD servers receive and store the “unique device ID” or “UDID,” which is a number uniquely associated with your mobile device. Gifties LTD cannot use the UDID to identify you personally, but it does enable us to collect information about the kind of mobile device you use, the operating system for your mobile device, the applications you download from Gifties LTD Clients, and when, how, and how often you use those applications.
We use your UDID and information about Client applications you download to report on the number of unique users who click through Gifties LTD Client ads, and the number of those users who download Client applications as a result of those ads.
We also use your UDID and the information associated with your UDID over time (e.g., the applications you download, when and how you use those applications, and any publisher-provided demographic data) to enhance our services and to select Gifties LTD Client ads that are most likely to be of interest to you.
Gifties LTD may disclose your non personally identifiable information (e.g. UDID, IP address, application usage information) to its advertisers, agents, contractors and other third parties in order to operate, provide and improve our services to our Clients and to end-users. In addition, we may disclose your non personally identifiable information to a successor acquirer or other related entity, in connection with a sale or transfer of some or all of our assets.
