WE COLLECT THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF INFORMATION:
(A) PERSONAL INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE
In general, we collect Personal Information that you submit to us voluntarily through the Website, GiftCertificatesandMore.com, and our Application. We also collect information that you submit in the process of creating or editing your account and user profile on Gift Certificates and More (GCM). For example, our registration and login process requires you to provide us with valid e-mail address, password, and cell phone number (optional).
When you personalize your profile and use the features of GCM, we will collect any information you voluntarily provide, and we may also request optional information to support your use of GCM, such as your year of birth, other demographic information and gender. We collect information in the form of the content that you submit during your use of GCM, such as location and other information you choose to submit.
We may also collect information about you and your friends who use GCM from any social network you may have connected from, in order to provide you with a more personalized experience.
When you sign up for, or win, any contests, sweepstakes or other activities that we make available on GCM, we will collect the information designated along with such activity, which may include contact information such as your address and phone number.
If you choose to sign up to receive information about products or services that may be of interest to you, we will collect your e-mail address and other related information. Additionally, we collect any information that you voluntarily enter, including Personal Information.
(B) PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM OTHER SOURCES
We may receive Personal Information about you from other sources with which you have registered or interacted, companies who we have partnered with (collectively, “Partners”) or other third parties. We may associate this information with the other Personal Information we have collected about you.
(C) E-MAIL AND E-MAIL ADDRESSES
If you send an e-mail to us, or fill out our “Feedback” form through our website or App, we will collect your e-mail address and the full content of your e-mail, including attached files, and other information you provide. We may use and display your full name and e-mail address when you send an e-mail notification to a friend through GCM or the social network from which you have connected to GCM (such as in an invitation, or when sharing your content).
Additionally, we may use your e-mail address to contact you on behalf of your friends (such as when someone sends you a personal message) or to send notifications from a social network or other website with which you have registered to receive such notifications. We may also use your e-mail address to contact you for things such as notifications of any offers we deem worthy, and other related information. You may indicate your preference to stop receiving further promotional communications as further detailed below.
Push Notifications/Alerts – GCM may send push notifications or alerts to your smart phone/device. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notifications on your smart phone/device (iOS) or by changing your setting within our Service (Android).
We may send you push notifications to your phone based on preferences, location and/or business exclusive offers. They may be used to contact you and you have the option to turn off the notifications through the “settings” option in the application.
(D) INFORMATION COLLECTED VIA TECHNOLOGY
An Internet protocol address, or “IP Address,” is a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet. In some cases your IP Address stays the same from browser session to browser session; but if you use a consumer internet access provider, your IP Address probably varies from session to session. “Cookies” are small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the site. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience with GCM.
Analytics Information about your use of our Services, such as your IP address, access time, device ID or other unique identifier (e.g., Android advertising ID), domain name, screen views, language information, device name and model, operating system type, and your activities on our Services. For example, information collection by our Services via a mobile device may include the following: (i) the names of the other applications on your mobile device and, if you use an Android-based mobile device, how you use them (e.g., frequency and duration of use); (ii) if you use an Android-based mobile device, the URL addresses of the webpages you access; (iii) information about your mobile device (e.g., make, model, operating system, and other similar information, but not phone number); (iv) information about your use of features, functions, or clicks on notifications or content; and (v) the strength of signal, temperature, battery level, and unique identifier of a nearby Bluetooth® proximity beacon.
Persistent Cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser “help file” directions. In order to use our services offered through the GCM Web Site, GiftCertificatesandMore.com, your web browser must accept Cookies. If you choose to disable Cookies, some aspects of GCM may not work properly, and you may not be able to receive our services. You can manage your cookie preferences via your browser settings (see <a href="http://www.aboutcookies.org" target="_blank">http://www.aboutcookies.org</a> for more information)
(E) MOBILE & LOCATION INFORMATION
If you use mobile-enabled services provided by GCM, such as any GCM mobile application made available by us, we may receive information about your use of our services and location data from your mobile device while you use our applications or services.

Certain information you post or provide through GCM that is made available through public social media profiles such as your name, profile, city, school, email, comments, collections and reviews, may be used by GCM or shared with other users and posted on publicly available portions of GCM, including without limitation, social media applications and other public forums in which you choose to participate.
