Effective as of: the moment you click "SIGN UP" below.
This Agreement is effective as of November 15, 2012, for current users, and upon acceptance for new users. This Agreement may be updated, amended or changed from time to time without notice and in accordance with Section 13.
This Privacy Statement ("Privacy Statement") describes how Givr Corp. ("Givr," "us," "our," and "we") handles your information for our services and applies to all who use our website, mobile and touch versions, other individual sites owned, operate and/or affiliated with Givr or other area-specific websites we offer that link to or reference this Privacy Statement (collectively, the "Site" and also referred to as the "Givr Sites") and electronic communications that you receive from us.
Please read this Privacy Statement carefully and review it periodically for the latest information about our privacy practices. By using the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with the practices described in this Privacy Statement, please do not provide us with your personal information or interact with the Site.
We will routinely update this Privacy Statement to clarify our practices and to reflect new or different privacy practices, such as when we add new services, functionality or features to the Site. If we make any material changes we will notify you by email (sent to the email address specified in your account) or by means of notice on the Site prior to the change becoming effective.
Givr's primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient and customized experience. We (or our Merchants on our behalf), use information collected as described in this Privacy Statement to:
We also may use information collected as described in this Privacy Statement with your consent or as otherwise required or permitted by law.
You provide us with your Personal Information when you register, subscribe, create an account, purchase or redeem Gift Certificates, or otherwise when you provide us with your Personal Information during your interaction with the Site. We also collect Personal Information when you contact us online for customer service and other support using self-help tools, such as email, text, or by posting to Givr-Nation.
When you access other websites before or after using the Site or open email messages, we may use Pixel Tags and Web Beacons to generate a notice of that action to us or our Merchants. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve the Site’ pages and promotions.
Device Data may be collected when your device interacts with the Site, even if you are not logged into the Site using your device. If you have questions about the security and privacy settings of your mobile device, please refer to instructions from your mobile service provider or the manufacturer of your device to learn how to adjust your settings.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us. Givr takes technical, contractual, administrative, and physical security steps to protect Personal Information that you provide to us. We instruct our employees with access to your Personal Information that it is to be used only in adherence with the principles set forth in this Privacy Statement and we will not otherwise disclose your Personal Information without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.
You can help protect the security of your Personal Information as well. For instance, never give out your password, since this is what is used to access your account on the Site. Also remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using the Site, so that other people using the same computer won’t have access to your information.
Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your Givr password to anyone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify us and change your password.
If you are unsure whether we have a record containing any of your Personal Information and would like to confirm whether or not we do, please send us an e-mail, indicating all e-mail addresses that you may have given us.
Connecting Through Social Networks
Givr offers social networking users the opportunity to interact with friends and to share on social networks. If you are logged into both Givr and a social network, we may link your social network account with your Givr account if the email addresses match. If the email addresses do not match, we will ask you if you want to link them and you must validate that you control the accounts.
If you are not currently registered as a Givr user and you use the Site’s social network connection functions, you will first be asked to enter your social network credentials and then be given the option to register and join Givr. Please refer to the privacy settings in your social network account to manage the data that is shared through your account.
Except as otherwise expressly include in this Privacy Statement, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you through your interaction with the Site. If you disclose your information to others or other websites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of information you disclose to them. Our Merchants, our affiliates or Vendors whose services we retain in the process of operating the Givr Sites may also have their own privacy statements. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the privacy statements provided by these other parties prior to providing them with information.
