Privacy Policy

iGIF Inc. ("iGIF") recognizes that its customers, visitors and users, want to know what's up with privacy. iGIF provides this Privacy Policy to help you make an informed decision about whether to use or continue using the iGIF Site, iGIF App and/or the iGIF Service, including any promotional contest. If you do not agree to our practices, please do not use the iGIF Site, iGIF App, or iGIF Service. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and is subject to the iGIF Terms of Service. Your use of the iGIF Site, iGIF App and the iGIF Service and any personal information you provide on the iGIF Site or iGIF Service remains subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service. Please note that any GIF (iGIF) or other content posted at the direction or discretion of users of the iGIF Service becomes published content and is not considered personally identifiable information subject to this Privacy Policy.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy is part of iGIF’s Terms of Service and covers the treatment of user information, including personally identifying information, obtained by iGIF, including information obtained when you access the iGIF’s Site, use the iGIF Service or any other software provided by iGIF, or participate in promotional contests using the iGIF App. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that iGIF does not own or control, or to individuals whom iGIF does not employ or manage, including any of the third parties to which iGIF may disclose user information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

The Information iGIF Collects

iGIF may obtain the following types of information from or concerning you or your mobile phone device, which may include information that can be used to identify you as specified below (“Personally Identifying Information”):

User Provided Information: You provide certain Personally Identifiable Information, such as your log in information, mobile phone number (if applicable), push notification name (if applicable), billing information (if applicable) and mobile device information to iGIF when choosing to participate in various uses of the iGIF Service, such as registering as a user, updating your status or otherwise.

Cookies Information: When you visit the iGIF Site, we may send one or more cookies - a small text file containing a string of alphanumeric characters - to your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. iGIF uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser. Persistent cookies may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the site. Persistent cookies can be removed by following your web browser help file directions. A session cookie is temporary and disappears after you close your browser. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, the iGIF Site may not function properly if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.

Log File Information: When you use the iGIF Site, our servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser language, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of those pages, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser, your phone number, phone number you are requesting the status of and various status information. When you use the iGIF Service, our servers log certain general information that our application sends whenever a message is sent or received.

The Information iGIF Does Not Collect

iGIF does not collect names, addresses or other contact information from its users—the iGIF mobile application will associate whatever name the iGIF user has assigned — and this occurs dynamically on the mobile device itself and not on iGIF’s servers and is not transmitted to iGIF.

Notwithstanding the above, iGIF may retain date and time stamp information associated with successfully delivered messages, as well as any other information which iGIF is legally compelled to collect. Files that are sent through the iGIF Service will reside on our servers after delivery for a short period of time, but are deleted and stripped of any identifiable information within a short period of time in accordance with our general retention policies.

The Way iGIF Uses Information

If you submit Personally Identifiable Information to us through the iGIF Site, or iGIF Service, then we use your personal information to operate, maintain, and provide to you the features and functionality of the iGIF Site and iGIF Service. In particular, your mobile phone number is essential to your use of the iGIF Service and will be retained.

Any billing information that may be collected from you will be deleted thirty (30) days after the termination of your account with iGIF. Any Personally Identifiable Information or status content that you voluntarily disclose on the iGIF Service becomes publicly available and may be collected and used by other users of the iGIF Service (unless such user is blocked by you).

We may use both your Personally Identifiable Information and certain non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous user usage data, cookies, IP addresses, browser type, clickstream data, etc.) to improve the quality and design of the iGIF Site and iGIF Service and to create new features, promotions, functionality, and services by storing, tracking, and analyzing user preferences and trends.

We may use cookies and log file information to: (a) remember information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you use the iGIF Service or iGIF Site; (b) provide custom, personalized content and information; (c) monitor individual and aggregate metrics such as total number of visitors, pages viewed, etc.; and (d) track your entries, submissions, views and such.

When iGIF Discloses Information

Other users of the iGIF Service may see your iGIF in a way that is consistent with the use of the iGIF Service. We do not sell or share your Personally Identifiable Information (such as mobile phone number) with other third-party companies for their commercial or marketing use without your consent or except as part of a specific program or feature for which you will have the ability to opt-in or opt-out.

We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with third party service providers to the extent that it is reasonably necessary to perform, improve or maintain the iGIF Service.

We may share non-personally-identifiable information (such as anonymous User usage data, referring / exit pages and URLs, platform types, asset views, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third-parties to assist them in understanding the usage patterns for certain content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on the iGIF Site.

We may collect and release Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information if required to do so by law, or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws (such as U.S. Copyright Law), international law or respond to a court order, subpoena, or search warrant or equivalent, or where in our reasonable belief, an individual’s physical safety may be at risk or threatened.

iGIF also reserves the right to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and/or non-personally-identifiable information that iGIF believes, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to enforce our Terms of Service, take precautions against liability, to investigate and defend itself against any third-party claims or allegations, to assist government enforcement agencies, to protect the security or integrity of the iGIF Site or our servers, and to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of iGIF, our users or others.

Your Choices

You may, of course, decline to submit Personally Identifiable Information through the iGIF Site or the iGIF Service, in which case iGIF may not be able to provide certain services to you. If you do not agree with our Privacy Policy or Terms of Service, please delete your account, uninstall the iGIF mobile application and discontinue use of the iGIF Service; your continued usage of the iGIF Service will signify your assent to and acceptance of our Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

To protect your privacy and security, we take reasonable steps (such as SMS authentication in certain cases) to verify your identity before registering your mobile phone number and granting you access to the iGIF Service. Please contact iGIF via email to support at iGIF.com or available web forms with any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy, your personal information, your consent, or your opt-in or opt-out choices.

Our Commitment To Data Security

iGIF uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We cannot, however, ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to iGIF and you do so at your own risk. Using unsecured wifi or other unprotected networks to submit messages through the iGIF Service is never recommended. Once we receive your transmission of information, iGIF makes commercially reasonable efforts to ensure the security of our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical, or managerial safeguards. If iGIF learns of a security systems breach, then we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. iGIF may post a notice on the iGIF Site or through the iGIF Service if a security breach occurs.

Our Commitment To Children’s Privacy

Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important. For that reason, iGIF does not knowingly collect or maintain Personally Identifiable Information or non-personally-identifiable information on the iGIF Site or iGIF Service from persons under 18 years of age, and no part of the iGIF Service is directed to or intended to be used by persons under 18. If you are under 18 years of age, then please do not use the iGIF Service or access the iGIF Site at any time or in any manner. If iGIF learns that Personally Identifiable Information of persons under 18 years of age has been collected on the iGIF Site or iGIF Service, then iGIF may deactivate the account and/or make the status submissions inaccessible.

Special Note to International Users

The iGIF Site and Service are hosted in the United States and are intended for and directed to users in the United States. If you are a user accessing the iGIF Site and Service from the European Union, Asia, or any other region with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure, that differ from United States laws, please be advised that through your continued use of the iGIF Site and Service, which are governed by California law, this Privacy Policy, and our Terms of Service, you are transferring your personal information to the United States and you expressly consent to that transfer and consent to be governed by California law for these purposes.

In the Event of Merger, Sale, or Bankruptcy

If iGIF is acquired by or merged with a third party entity, we reserve the right to transfer or assign the information we have collected from our users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the (hopefully) unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personal information is treated, transferred, or used.
