Keep reading to discover what kind of data (personal and not-so-much) we gather from (and about) you, your browser, your geographical location, your internet connection, etc., etc., etc. We did our best to keep this page as understandable and human as possible, but never hesitate in dropping us a line if you still have any questions after reading this Policy to the end. :)
User: So, what kind of information do you collect about and from me?
Okay, get ready for a bit of technical stuff. When you access the Giftopix website (giftopix.com), small chunks of technical data called "cookies" are automatically created and stored on your PC. They contain information about what kind of browser you are using, its version and settings, the language it operates on, and similar technical stuff. So, the next time you open the Giftopix website, it will check up on the previously stored cookies and adjust itself to perform better on your PC and web browser. For example, it might compress some of the images to use less traffic if your connection is slow. Or direct you to the German Amazon store when you click on Amazon links if your cookies say you're from Germany. Similar stuff, but all dedicated to improving your experience with Giftopix. Cookies do not contain any kind of personally identifiable information (e.g. your name, surname, etc.) other than the one you've voluntarily provided to the website (like when you register or log in). Cookies are not used to spy on you, and they never will.
I'm still worried about my privacy. Can I turn off these cookies and still use the Giftopix website?
Yep. Check your browser settings to disable it from creating cookies (and delete the ones it previously created). Most likely, you will still be able to access the Giftopix website and use all of its content and/or functions to the fullest extent, but the experience may be not as smooth as it could with cookies (e.g., the website could start working a bit slower). It's up to you, however. We're cool with your decision.
Do you send my cookies to any third parties? What for?
Yep, but only for analytical and techie stuff. Cookies are very useful to gather statistics on browser performance, for example, so that we could later improve our website to work better on your browser, PC. Another thing cookies are used for is to personalize the ads you may see on our website so that they better suit your interests and preferences. But, again, cookies do not have any personally identifiable information and are impossible to use for spying on you neither by us nor by these third parties mentioned.
What about the personal information I give you when I sign up and/or comment on your website?
When you sign up or comment on the Giftopix website, no personal information other than the clearly specified (e.g. name, email, etc.) is gathered and stored by us. We never share this data with ANY third parties whatsoever, and keep everything in super secure servers. Rest assured that your information is safe and sound with us.
Your website contains links to other websites. How do they treat my privacy?
