National Gift Card Corp. ("NGC") respects its customer's privacy. This policy addresses NGC's practices with respect to the collection, use and disclosure of personal information.
When accessing NGC's website, certain information about a customer may be acquired. How NGC will handle information it learned about a customer depends upon what a customer does when visiting the website.
If a customer visits NGC's website to read or download information on our pages, we collect and store only the following information:
In addition, NGC may require certain personal information, such as credit card information only in connection with purchases and related to payment processing and fraud prevention. Credit card information and other sensitive personal information required to process a credit decision is not used for any other purpose by NGC's financial services providers or NGC itself and will not be kept longer than necessary for providing the services.
NGC, like most websites, uses "cookies" that tell when its website pages are visited, and by how many people. Cookies do not collect personally identifiable information and NGC does not combine information collected through cookies with other personally identifiable information to further identify an individual. You can remove or block cookies using the setting in your browser, but in some cases that may impact your use of NGC's website. NGC may use software programs to create summary statistics to assess certain information, including the number of visitors to the different sections of its website, what information is of most and least interest, the need for technical design specifications, and to identify system performance or problem areas.
For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, NGC may use software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
In order to purchase reward card(s) through this website, you must provide NGC with certain information such as your name and address and the number of the account from which the funds to be credited to the reward card are to be deducted. If you wish to give the reward card to someone else, you must also provide NGC with that person's name and address. This information may be disclosed to service providers who assist NGC in servicing and administering the NGC reward card or a reward card of one of its authorized partners or resellers. NGC's agreements with these service providers contain confidentiality provisions and restrictions on using this information for any other purposes. NGC may also disclose certain information as required or permitted under applicable law, for example, to government agencies.
NGC does not collect personally identifiable information about individuals who visit NGC's website except when the information is specifically provided on a voluntary basis. Such instances where personally identifiable information may be gathered are site registrations, contest or sweepstakes registration, the registration for services and in connection with content submissions, suggestions, voting/polling activities, and transaction areas. Personally identifiable information may also be obtained by e-mail submissions containing personal information.
The collected personal information can be used to enhance your experience with NGC, personalize your shopping experience, update you on products and services, remind you of important occasions for those you care, and to alert you to future business opportunities. NGC, or one of its authorized partners or resellers, may contact a customer regarding its products or related services. NGC's customers may also receive information from NGC or one of its authorized partners or resellers regarding special events, press releases, news of complementary products from its strategic partners, and/or product-specific technical information including security bulletins and notifications of upgrades.
NGC does not target its website to children under the age of 13 and does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of 13. IF NGC determines that a person with respect to whom it has collected personally identifiable information is under the age of 13, NGC will promptly use best efforts to delete or destroy that information.
When you make a payment: When you enter into transactions with others or make payments on NGC web sites, we will share transaction information with only those third parties necessary to complete the transaction, and when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service.
To help improve or promote our service: Sometimes we share aggregated information with third parties to help improve or promote our service. We will do so in such a way that no individual user can be identified or linked to any specific action or information.
To provide you with services: We may provide information to service providers that help us bring you the services we offer. For example, we may use third parties to host our website, send out email updates about NGC, remove repetitive information from our user lists, process payments, or provide search results or links (including sponsored links). These service providers may have access to your personal information for a limited time, but when this occurs we implement reasonable contractual and technical protections to limit their use of that information to helping us provide the service.
To advertise our services: We may ask advertisers outside NGC to display ads promoting our services. We may ask them to deliver those ads based on the presence of a cookie, but in doing so will not share any other information with the advertiser.
Transfer in the Event of Sale or Change of Control: If the ownership of all or substantially all of our business changes, we may transfer your information to the new owner so that service can continue to operate.
NGC will not otherwise sell, rent, lease or otherwise transfer any personal information to individuals or entities outside of NGC or one of its authorized partners or resellers without customer's approval.
Customers may always "opt out" of further promotional contacts at any time, and NGC will take reasonable efforts to delete a customer's personal information from NGC's database. It may be impossible to delete a customer's entry without some residual information because of backup and record retention requirements.
NGC uses appropriate technical, administrative and physical procedures to safeguard your personal information. NGC utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, an advanced encryption technology that protects the information you send us against unauthorized access or disclosure.
No method of transmission over the Internet, or electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while we strive to protect your personal information with commercially acceptable practices, we cannot guarantee absolute security.
NGC reserves the right to change this policy at any time. Any changes to the Policy will be posted on NGC's website. This statement and the policies outlined here are not intended to and do not create any contractual or other legal rights in or on behalf of any party.
