PRIVACY POLICY OF GIFT CARD SPREAD

OUR COMMITMENT TO PRIVACY.

We want our users to fully understand what information we collect, how we use this information, and the steps we take to protect your personal information. This notice describes our Privacy Policy. Please read it, both because it describes the policies and procedures we have put in place to achieve the above goal, and because by making use of this website you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

We take the security of your information very seriously. We take several administrative, technical, physical and managerial measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access. As one example, all personal information that you send us through the registration and sign-up processes are encrypted using industry-standard methods. As discussed below, we collect information about you to enable us to serve you more effectively and efficiently and to process your requests, as well as to enable you to set up a user account and make use of the services we provide. We also may use your contact information to supply you with information we believe will be of use or interest to you. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy, what information we collect and how we use that information.

We may also provide analysis of our users in the aggregate or otherwise in anonymous form to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties.

From time to time, we may partner with companies whose products we believe will interest our members. In conjunction with these partners, we may send promotional announcements and/or advertisements on their behalf, as permitted by law. If you do not want to receive such promotional email, simply let us know by sending us an email at Support@GiftCardSpread.com.

In the course of providing such services, these other companies may have access to some of your information. We do not authorize these companies to use or disclose your personal information except for the purpose of providing the services we request of them.
