Last Revised: December, 2017
Effective date: 12/11/2017
Scope of this Policy
This Policy applies only to information collected through this Application. It does not apply to third-party websites or third-party mobile apps. It also does not apply to information collected through other channels, such as over the phone or in person.
Information We Collect
We collect the information you manually provide to us, using your keyboard or touchpad. For example, all users must provide the following information to establish and maintain a user account: mobile phone number, country of residence, first and last names, gender, date of birth, and email address. Some of this information can be used to personally identify you, either alone or in communication with other information (the “Personal Information”). You may be able to establish and maintain a user account by choosing to automatically populate the requested data fields with information you previously provided to a third-party social media platform (such as Facebook or Twitter). By doing this, you are asking the third-party platform to send us information from your profile on that platform. We treat that information as we do any other information you give to us when you register, log on, or enhance your profile.
With your opt-in consent, Giftbomb may also access and use information stored on your mobile device and accessible through the device’s file or operating system, such as photographs, audio files, and personal contact and address book information (“Stored Information”).
With your opt-in consent, Giftbomb may also collect real-time information concerning your location using the GPS functionality offered by your mobile device (“Location Information”).
Giftbomb may also collect information regarding your use of the Application using mobile device identifiers, IP addresses, browser and operating system identifiers, and software tracking tools and files, such as cookies and web beacons (“Usage Information”). Usage Information is not, in and of itself, personally identifiable, but we may combine it with other information in an attempt to identify you or we may combine it with information that does identify you.
Use of Mobile Phone Number
If you revoke your consent for the use of your mobile number, you will not be eligible to use the Application and your account will be suspended or terminated without further notice.
Third-Party Information Collection
When you use the Application or its content, certain third parties may use automatic information collection technologies to collect information about you or your device.
For example, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics tool that helps us understand how visitors engage with our Sites. Other third parties may collect information about you or your device for the purpose of tracking your online behaviors across non affiliated websites and applications and delivering targeted advertisements to you.
You have choices about the collection of information by third parties on the Application. For example, if you don’t want information about your visit to this Site sent to Google Analytics, you may download an Opt-out Browser Add-on. Please note that the Add-on does not prevent information from being sent to Giftbomb.
In addition, if you would like to opt out of having participating entities collect your behavior for advertising purposes when you are using the Application, download and use the Digital Advertising Alliance’s “App Choices” app. It may be that some of the third parties that collect interest-based information on this Application do not participate in the Mobile App Opt Out, in which case the best way to avoid third-party tracking of your behaviors is to contact the responsible provider directly. Please note that the Mobile App Opt Out is device specific. If you wish to opt-out from having interest-based information collected by participating entities across all devices, you need take the steps outlined above from each device.

∙ to provide the information, products and services you request;
∙ to provide you with effective customer service;
∙ to provide you with a personalized experience when you use the Application;

Disclosure of Your Information
We may share the Personal Information, Stored Information, Location Information, and Usage Information collected through this Application as follows:
With Third-Party Service Providers. We may share information collected through this Application with third-party vendors who act for us or on our behalf (the “Third-Party Service Providers”). For example, we may use Third-Party Service Providers for development, application hosting, data storage, and technology infrastructure services.
Without Our Merchant Clients. We may share information collected through this Application with our clients—the merchants who use it to sell and redeem gift cards. These merchants may use your information for their own marketing purposes and for any other purpose consistent with this Policy. If you have questions about how a particular merchant may be using your Personal Information, you should contact the merchant.
With Other, Carefully Selected Business Partners. From time to time, we may share your information with selected third parties (other than our Third-Party Service Providers or merchant clients) for joint or their own marketing purposes. Before doing so, however, we may offer you the opportunity to “opt out” or “opt in,” as required by applicable law.
As Part of a Business Transfer. Your information may be transferred to a successor organization if, for example, we transfer the ownership or operation of this Site to another organization, if we merge with another organization, or if we liquidate our assets. If such a transfer occurs, the successor organization’s use of your information will still be subject to this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.
De-Identified or in the Aggregate. We may share anonymous, pseudonymous, or otherwise de-identified information, including aggregate information, with third-parties for any purpose without restriction.
For any other purpose disclosed by us when you provide the information.
We respect your right to make choices about the ways we collect, use, and disclose your information. We may ask you to indicate your choices at the time and on the page where you provide your information.
Push Notifications. If you do not want us to receive push notifications about our own products and services or those we promote on behalf of third parties, you can turn notifications for the application off in your mobile device settings.
Email Preferences. We will include an “opt out” link in each electronic newsletter or commercial email we send you, so that you can inform us that you do not wish to receive such communications from us in the future.
Do Not Track Mechanisms. California law requires this Policy to address how we respond to any “Do-Not-Track (‘DNT’) signal” delivered by your browser. Because of the changing state of technology and indecision within the industry regarding the meaning of DNT signals, we currently do not make any guarantee that we will honor DNT signals.
Previously Expressed Preferences. You may change previously expressed preferences regarding what we collect and how we use it. You typically can make these changes either through your account within the Application or through your mobile device settings.
We take reasonable precautions to provide a level of security appropriate to the sensitivity of the information we collect. Although we use reasonable measures to help protect your information against unauthorized use or disclosure, we cannot guarantee the security of information provided over the Internet or stored in our databases and will not be responsible for breaches of security beyond our reasonable control.
The Application is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect any Personal Information from users under the age of 13 online through this Application. If you think that we have collected Personal Information from a user under the age of 13, please contact us.
