Collection and Use of Personal Information
Our site uses an order and registration form so that you can request information and purchase products and services. These forms require that you provide us with personally identifiable information (such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, and credit card number). GiftLit uses personally identifiable information collected from you to complete transactions initiated by you (such as the sale and delivery of products and services). Your personally identifiable information is also used to get in touch with you when necessary. We may also use personally identifiable information to contact you to make sure you are satisfied with our goods and services or to find out how we can serve you better. Financial information (credit card numbers, credit card expiration dates, billing address, and so forth) is used to bill you for products and services.
You may, from time to time, receive information from us regarding new features, new products and services and special offers we think you'll find valuable. Also, while we won't share your email address with other companies, we may rent, sell or exchange your mailing address and information about your transactions with businesses that we believe to be reputable and that can provide you with offers and information that we think will be of interest to you. If you'd like to opt out of receiving future mailings from GiftLit, or if you would like to opt out of GiftLit providing your mailing address to third parties, please submit a request to not have your personal information shared for this purpose. You may submit this type of opt-out request by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to the following mailing address: Customer Service, GiftLit LLC, 24 17th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121. Please allow up to two weeks for your request to be processed.
Where you use the Site to purchase a product or service as a gift, we will collect from you personally identifiable information regarding the gift recipient. This is done in order to accommodate proper gift delivery to such recipients. We do not sell or rent any personally identifiable information that you provide to us regarding such persons, but gift recipients may, from time to time, receive offers from us regarding new features, new products and services and special offers we think they will find of interest. Also we may send marketing offers to gift recipients on behalf of ourselves and our business partners. In connection with such offers, we allow gift recipients to opt out of receiving future marketing-related mailings from us.
