A NOTE ABOUT THIS POLICY
Information You Share
We collect information online that you voluntarily provide to us yourself and from other sources such as Facebook and other applications. This includes but may not be limited to name, email address, phone number, purchase information and history, birthday, messages and similar information. We also collect some information about you automatically, including information regarding your use of the Website; for example, we are able to see when and where you redeem a Gift and what IP address you access the Website from.
Yiftee may collect your email address or phone number in the process of creating a Yiftee account. This information is essential for Yiftee to be able to contact you in the event of a problem with your account or if your account has unused funds.
Yiftee does not store specific credit card data, such as the full 16 digit credit card number (PAN), 3 or 4 digit code (CVV) or expiration date. This data is encrypted by Braintree software prior by being received by Yiftee and thence forwarded to Braintree for processing in a manner in which Yiftee is unable to decrypt this data. You may elect to save your credit card data for subsequent use without having to re-enter the data. In this case, a secure token that references your credit card information (as stored by Braintree) is supplied to Yiftee by Braintree and stored by us. This token contains no Personal Information and we use it to communicate your payment selection of a stored credit card to Braintree.
What Yiftee Does With Your Information
One of the ways we use your Personal Information is to allow you to send and receive Gifts and notify you and others about Gifts. Yiftee does not share any Personal Information with Merchants or others without your express permission, except in the limited circumstances described in this Policy.
There may be opportunities on the site for you to voluntarily share Personal Information about yourself, but it is up to you to decide how much of such information you want to share. Third party advertisers have no access to the Personal Information stored in your private profile, unless it is in an aggregated (i.e., non-personally-identifiable) format.
Yiftee treats data as an asset that must be protected and uses many tools and techniques to protect your Personal Information against unauthorized access and disclosure.
Please bear in mind that we cannot guarantee complete security, as third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Please also keep in mind that anything you post publicly to the Website is available to the public, and others may abuse or misuse your Personal Information that they collect from the Website. Therefore, please consider carefully what you choose to disclose on the Website or any time you go online.
Children On Yiftee
Children under 13 are not allowed to have accounts on the Website. Children who are between 13 and 18 must get parental permission before registering for accounts on the Yiftee Site.
If you leave our site through a link, we encourage you to read the privacy statements of each and every linked website. Please see below for the full details of the Yiftee privacy practices.
I. YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
Yiftee does not rent, trade, sell or otherwise share for marketing purposes your Personal Information in personally identifiable form to anyone, unless you ask or authorize us to do so. Uses of Personal Information are detailed in this policy, so please carefully read the entire policy.
California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits Yiftee users who are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us at email@example.com.
As used in this Policy, the terms Personally Identifiable Information or Personal Information mean information that specifically identifies an individual (such as a full name, user name or email address), or information about that individual that is directly linked to information that specifically identifies an individual. Personally Identifiable Information does not include “aggregate” information, which is data we collect about the aggregate use of the Website or about a group or category of services or users, or data that has been reasonably de-identified and from which individual identities or other personally identifiable information has reasonably been removed. This Policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate or de-identified information. Personally identifiable information is not shared with any third party, although third parties may be able to indirectly access such information for example when sending a gift to an aggregated collection of Website users where the identity of these users is not disclosed to the third party.
Yiftee does not knowingly collect or solicit Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 or knowingly allow such persons to register. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to register for the Website or send any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, or email address. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to us or on the Website. In the event that we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13 without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Children between 13 and 18 must obtain parental permission before registering for accounts on the Website. Only people age 18 or over can purchase Gifts on the Website. You must have a valid credit card to purchase Gifts. In order to redeem a Gift, in most cases you must have a smart phone, tablet or computer that can access the Internet at the merchant’s location, or you must download the Yiftee Mobile Application available from the Apple App Store or the Android App Store, or otherwise sign up for a Yiftee account.
We have designed policies and procedures to protect both your confidentiality and the security of your information, including your nonpublic personal information. We store and process your personal information using third party servers located in secure data centers in the United States. These centers are protected by physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable federal and state regulations. Additionally, Yiftee uses firewalls and data encryption. We also enforce tight restrictions on physical access to our office and files and limit digital access to sensitive data in order to ensure that only those employees who require the access to fulfill their job responsibilities actually have it.
Despite Yiftee’s efforts to keep your information secure, we cannot guarantee the security of your information. As a result, we strongly encourage you to take action to protect your personal data and any device you use to access the Website. In the unlikely event that we come to learn that either our system or your account specifically has suffered a security breach, we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps, by email, text message, phone call, a notice on the Yiftee website, or any other way, depending on the requirements of applicable law.
Although Yiftee works very hard to keep all of its users’ information secure, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. By enabling the screen lock on your phone and/or changing your passcode, PIN, and/or pattern frequently, you can reduce the risk of someone gaining access to your information. Similarly, keeping a strong password on your Yiftee account and updating it from time to time will help prevent someone from gaining access to your account. Finally, we may, from time to time, provide links or portals to other websites or applications. Always be aware when you are leaving the Yiftee Website and entering another website or application, and be sure to review the relevant privacy policies of the other websites or applications.
To assist with the protection of personally identifiable information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other person. You are responsible for all uses of the Website by any person using your password. Please advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. If you have any questions about security on the Website, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security. If you access your account via a third party site or service (such as Facebook Connect), you may have additional or different sign-on protections via that third party site or service. You need to prevent unauthorized access to your account and Personal Information by selecting and protecting your password and/or other sign-on mechanism appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors may compromise the security of user information at any time.
You understand that when you use the Website, information you provide via the Website, information you grant access to by using the Website, as well as any information you share with individuals through the Website, will be available to other users and in some cases may be made publicly available.
We are not responsible for the actions of Service Providers or other third-parties, nor are we responsible for any additional information you provide directly to any other users or third-parties, and we encourage you to become familiar with third-party privacy practices before disclosing information directly to any such third-parties. Nothing herein restricts the sharing of aggregated or anonymized information, which may be shared with third-parties without your consent.
Yiftee does not store specific credit card data, such as the full 16 digit credit card number (PAN), 3 or 4 digit code (CVV) or expiration date. This data is encrypted by Braintree software prior by being received by Yiftee (across a secure SSL-encrypted connection) and thence forwarded to Braintree for processing in a manner in which Yiftee is unable to decrypt this data. You may elect to save your credit card data (on Braintree) for subsequent use without having to re-enter the data. In this case, a secure token that references your card information stored by Braintree is supplied to us by Braintree and stored by us. This token contains no Personal Information and we use it to communicate your payment selection of a stored credit card to Braintree. When you pay with a credit card, you agree to be bound by the privacy policies of Braintree and any other financial institutions or fraud prevention services involved in the processing of credit card transactions.

A. Affiliated Businesses and Third Party Websites We Do Not Control: In certain situations, businesses or third party websites we’re affiliated with may sell items or provide services to you through the Website (either alone or jointly with us, possibly via a link to a third party website). We may, for example, sell products or provide services jointly with affiliated businesses, or work with third party websites to enhance your online experience. You can recognize when an affiliated business is associated with such a transaction or service, and we will share your Personal Information with that affiliated business only to the extent that it is related to such transaction or service. For example, we may need to share certain information about you with a Merchant, so that Merchant can allow you to redeem your Gift at its place of business; however, in that circumstance, we will not share more information than is necessary to allow that Merchant to redeem your Gift, and we will not authorize that Merchant to use the information for anything other than redeeming your Gift.
