Welcome to the GiftKash Online Store. In order to make you feel comfortable and secure in our online store, GiftKash has taken numerous precautions to guard your security while making purchases online. Our goal is to make you feel as comfortable shopping here as you would from our catalog or retail showrooms. For each visitor to our web site, our web server automatically recognizes the consumer’s domain name and email address (where possible).
What personally identifiable information is being collected?
When you visit or make use of GiftKash Tech Resources, you may be asked to provide us with personally identifiable information in order for us to provide you with the products or services that you have requested. For example, when you order a product, we may ask you to become a registered user of our web site, during which you will be asked for your name, shipping and billing addresses, your email address, and your credit card number or other payment-related information.
If you request one of our newsletters or send an inquiry to one of our customer service representatives, we will also store a record of your request along with your email address.
In addition, our web servers track various technical details about your visit, such as your computer’s IP address and which pages you visited. We use this information to monitor and improve our Tech Resources as well as personalize your experience with GiftKash through direct on-line advertising. If you access our mobile website or have downloaded a mobile app, we may also automatically collect information when you use our mobile website or download our mobile app about the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device identifier, your mobile operating system, pages you visit on our mobile site, search terms, the type of mobile internet browsers you use and information about the way you use our mobile website and mobile applications. We use this information to obtain data about your general shopping habits, how you use our mobile platforms and how we might improve them.
We may also collect location based information when you use our mobile website or mobile applications if you choose to allow us to do so. Our collection and usage of location based data is below.
We post customer testimonials on our web site which may contain personally identifiable information such as the customer’s name. We do obtain the customer’s consent prior to posting the testimonial to post their name along with their testimonial.
When you order a gift certificate you are given the opportunity to include the name and a message for the party receiving the gift certificate. This information is captured as part of this specific order process and we may use it to gather customer feedback and improve our services.
How is the personally identifiable information being used?
The personally identifiable information we collect is used to provide the products and services that you have requested or that we think you might have an interest in. It is also used to improve the content of our web site, to notify you of problems with your requests, and to update you about changes to our web site.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
With whom do we share your personally identifiable information?
We use software tools and service providers to help us gather and analyze information about our customers (anonymous traffic, and from time to time, individual user activity) on our web site. By reporting and tracking ads served on our site, these service providers help us conduct our business, optimize our ad campaigns through the use of data analytics, and deliver the most relevant products and services. They are not permitted to use your personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
We use one or more service providers to send direct marketing messages on our behalf via email. Their only role is to help us conduct our business and deliver marketing messages that we believe are the most relevant to you. They are not permitted to use your personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes.
If GiftKash. is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personally identifiable information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personally identifiable information.
Third Party Ad Networks and Behavioral Advertising
We may contract with service providers to serve ads on our behalf across the Internet and sometimes on this web site. They will collect anonymous information about your visits to our web site, and your interaction with our products and services. They may also use information about your visits to this and other web sites to target advertisements for goods and services. These targeted advertisements may appear on our web site or on other sites that you visit. The anonymous information is collected through the use of a pixel tag, which is industry standard technology used by most major web sites.
Mobile and Geo–Location
When you use our site from a mobile device, we have the ability to provide you with push notifications containing marketing messages. Your device may allow you to opt out of these push notifications by accessing your device's application or notification settings. GiftKash has no control over the application permission notifications that may be provided to you from a third party app store or the ability of your device to opt-out of these push notifications.
In addition, when you use our site from a mobile device, we may also send you push notifications based on your location if you activate your location settings on your device. Your ability to turn off location settings and the method for doing so will vary according to your mobile device. You may not be able to deactivate location based notifications without turning off all location services on certain mobile devices.
If you choose to share your location with us, we may use a service provider to approximate your position based on one or more of the following, as available: network location (cell tower triangulation) technology, GPS and wi-fi signals. IF YOU DO NOT WANT USE TO HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR LOCATION, YOU MAY CHANGE YOUR LOCATION SETTINGS AS PERMITTED BY YOUR MOBILE DEVICE. GIFTKASH HAS NO RESPONSIBILITY OR LIABILITY FOR THE FUNCTION OF LOCATION SETTINGS WITHIN ANY MOBILE DEVICE.
Once you allow location based tracking through a mobile application or mobile website, you are agreeing that we can collect and use your location data and can continue to do so until you turn off your location settings and/or opt out of that usage, as may be permitted by your mobile device. We use this location based data to track your general shopping patterns and also aggregate this data to help understand general consumer patterns and trends.
Opting Out of Online Advertising
You can also visit the website www.aboutads.info to change your consumer preferences with respect to certain online ads and to obtain further information about third party ad networks and online behavioral advertising.
Do Not Track
As you may be aware, there are on-going discussions regarding Do Not Track technology. Do Not Track technology allows a user to choose in each separate browser environment (i.e. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, etc.) whether he or she wants his or her browsing to be tracked across websites. However, industry efforts to standardize Do Not Track technology and policies are ongoing. Since Do Not Track technology has not been fully standardized, we currently do not honor Do Not Track requests at this time. We will continue to monitor Do Not Track developments so that we can work towards honoring the preferences of our customers as efficiently as possible.

In all cases, we will require written documentation of the request, proof of the identity of the law enforcement official making the request, and we will take steps to authenticate the validity of the request.

Secure Ordering Process
Any credit card information you enter on our site is strongly encrypted by industry-standard protocol, SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). The GiftKash Web site uses SSL to communicate with secure browsers like Google Chrome, FireFox, and Internet Explorer. These browsers encrypt your credit card and personally identifiable information in a way that makes it extremely difficult for anyone to intercept and misuse while being transmitted between your computer and our server. Don’t worry if your browser is secure or not - if it is insecure, you will not be able to purchase on our online store.
Once you have completed your order online, our security procedures do not end. We take appropriate precautions to protect the security and privacy of the information stored on our computer networks. Many of the systems which store your personally identifiable information are not connected to the Internet, reducing the likelihood of security breaches. Our systems are also housed in secure facilities, and access to your data by our employees is limited to a "need to know" basis, controlled by password protected systems, and monitored for abuse. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
If you are still unsure of giving your credit card over the Internet, please feel free to phone your order to us. For telephone ordering or assistance, please call 402-819-7913.
If you have any further question regarding your online security, please contact us at 402-819-7913 or Email Customer Service.
