Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies
A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyze web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.
An IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time you log on to the Internet. We may record IP Addresses for the following purposes: (i) troubleshoot technical concerns, (ii) maintain website safety and security (iii) better understand how our websites are utilized, and (iv) to better tailor content to your needs depending on the country you are in.
We (or a third party on our behalf) may collect information in the form of logs files that record website activity and gather statistics about a user’s browsing habits. These entries are generated anonymously, and help us gather (among other things) (i) a user’s browser type and operating system, (ii) information about a user’s session (such as the URL they came from, the date and time they visited our website, and which pages they've viewed on our website and for how long), and, (iii) other similar navigational or click-stream information (e.g. site traffic reporting and unique visitor counts).
In order to keep your personal information secure, Gifted.PH has implemented a number of security measures, including:
- Secure operating environments - Gifted.PH stores your information in secure operating environments and only accessible to Gifted.PH employees, agents and contractors on a need-to-know basis. Gifted.PH also follows generally accepted industry standards in this respect.
- Encryption for payment information - Gifted.PH uses industry-standard encryption provided by its third party payment provider to provide protection for sensitive financial information, such as credit card information sent over the Internet (e.g. when you make payments through Gifted.PH’s online stores).
- Prior authentication for account access - Gifted.PH requires its registered consumers to verify their identity (e.g. login ID and password) before they can access or make changes to their account. This is aimed to prevent unauthorized accesses.
Please note that these protections do not apply to personal information you choose to share in public areas such as on community websites.
Gifted.PH will only retain your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the stated purpose, taking into account that we need the information to ensure gift cards are properly redeemed and validated, and to track any issues, concerns and feedback in relation to the order and fulfillment process of the gift cards. This means that we will retain your personal data related to order processing for a period of 10 or more years to make sure that our order fulfillment and redemption process is always accurate. When the personal information that we collect is no longer required, we destroy or delete it in a secure manner.
