Way Ventures, LLC d/b/a GiftAdvisor.com ("GiftAdvisor.com", "GiftAdvisor", "Company", "We", "Us" or "Our") knows that our users ("you," "your", "visitors", "user") care about how your personal data is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously.
Please read this Policy carefully to understand how we will use and protect your personal information. The information we collect ("Personal Data") may be "personally identifiable" (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or "non-personally identifiable" (meaning it can't be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information and combinations of both types as described below.
We will not share your Personal Data with anyone except as described in this Policy. By visiting or using the GiftAdvisor.com website and domain name, and any other linked pages, features, content, or any other services we offer from time to time (collectively, the "Website"), you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Policy, and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your Personal Data as described in this Policy.
The information we gather from you enables us to personalize and improve our services. Our goal is to provide you an efficient and customized experience when using our Website.

- information that you post to the Site in the form of comments or contributions to discussions; and
- IP addresses.
Uses of Your Personal Data
We will use the Personal Data you provide to:
- identify you when you sign-in to your account;
- enable us to provide you with the GiftAdvisor.com services;
- send you information we think you may find useful or which you have requested from us;
- present products to you when you use the GiftAdvisor.com service which we believe will be of interest based on your geographic location and previous use of the GiftAdvisor.com services;
- administer your account with us;
- enable us to contact you regarding any question you submit through the GiftAdvisor.com service;
- analyze the use of the GiftAdvisor.com service and the people visiting to improve our content and Services; and
- use for other purposes that we may disclose to you when we request your information.
We collect information from you in a variety of ways, including through user registration, surveys, sweepstakes, reminder services, and other instances where you are invited to participate and volunteer such information.
While not all of the information that we collect from Users is personally identifiable, it may be associated with personally identifiable information that Users provide us through our website. In addition, GiftAdvisor.com may collect information that includes website's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that you just came from, which URL you next go to, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the Internet. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Personal Data collected automatically.
When we collect usage information (such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website), we only use this data in aggregate form, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. For example, this aggregate data tells us how often users use parts of the Website, so that we can make the Website appealing to as many users as possible. We may also provide this aggregate information to our partners, so that they can understand how often people use their services and our Website, so that they, too, can provide you with an optimal online experience. We never disclose aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally.
In addition, any Personal Data, saved gift ideas or gift lists, pictures or image content that you voluntarily disclose online will become publicly available and can be collected and used by others.
We neither rent nor sell your Personal Data to anyone. We share your Personal Data only as described below.
Advertisers: We may share your Personal Data with our trusted affiliates and advertisers ("Advertisers") to display targeted advertisements and/or promotional offers and you agree that we may provide any of the information we have collected from you to an Advertiser. We may deliver a file to you through the Website (known as a "web beacon") from an ad network. Web beacons allow ad networks to provide anonymized, aggregated auditing, research and reporting for us and for advertisers. Web beacons also enable ad networks to serve targeted advertisements to you when you visit other websites. Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
Merchants: We may share your Personal Data with the merchants that list their products on our Website. We may deliver a cookie to you through the merchant website to track your actions on a merchant website. The merchants can also view, edit, or set their own cookies, when you visit their website by clicking a product link from our Website.
Public sharing of your information: Unless you have indicated in your Profile to the contrary, we allow the public and other members of the site to browse your saved gift ideas, saved gift lists. All comments, questions, answers, and profile information including your username, full name, and picture that you post on GiftAdvisor.com will be publicly available. Any content (including without limitation images and comments) you voluntarily disclose will be publicly available and can be collected and used by others, and may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels. Additionally, if you sign into the Website through a third party social networking site or service, your list of "friends" from that site or service may be automatically imported to the Website, and such "friends," if they are also registered users of the Website, may be able to access certain non-public information you have entered in your Website user profile. We do not control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
Unless You indicate to the contrary, user profile information, including without limitation your name, email address, and other information ("User Submissions") may be displayed to other users if you chose to enter such information on your user profile. Again, any content (including without limitation images, captions, and comments) you voluntarily post on the Website becomes publicly available and can be collected and used by others, and may be redistributed through the internet and other media channels. Additionally, if you sign into the Website through a third party social networking site or service, your list of "friends" from that site or service may be automatically imported to the Website, and such "friends," if they are also registered users of the Website, may be able to access certain non-public information you have entered in your Website user profile. Again, we do not control the policies and practices of any other third party site or service.
We may use your email to send information about related news, products, offers, surveys or promotions from GiftAdvisor or our Advertisers or our merchant partners. You may also receive notification e-mails from GiftAdvisor, which inform you of actions (e.g. forgotten password) that have been performed on the site.
We do not sell or rent any of your personally identifying data to third parties. Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your Personal Data may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information. We may share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners, advertisers or others. For example, we may tell an advertiser and merchant partners on GiftAdvisor.com how many people or the percentage of people who click on a gift after viewing it.
We utilize certain features of Google Analytics Advertising that include: Google Display Network Impression Reporting, Google Analytics Demographics, and Interest Reporting Integrated services that require Google Analytics to collect data via advertising cookies and anonymous identifiers. These features assist us in understanding our users and preferences. We understand that certain website visitors may not want their data to be used by Google Analytics and therefore, the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on is available. To opt-out of Analytics for the web, visit the Google Analytics opt-out page and install the add-on for your browser. For more details on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please see the relevant help resources for your specific browser.
If we believe that disclosure is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety, rights or property of the public, any person or GiftAdvisor.com; or to detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues.
We may engage in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Policy.
