The personal information of our customers and users is an important and fundamental part of our business. Under no circumstances will we sell or share information with third parties that has not been previously authorized by the user, customer or owner of the personal data. We share user and customer information only and exclusively as described below.

Third-Party Service Providers. We use the services of third parties to perform certain functions on our behalf and through our website and services. Examples include processing payments (PayPal, Apple Pay, Google Pay), building and hosting the website, sending emails, sending SMS messages, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, and delivering search results and links.

These third-party services and tools may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use that information for other purposes. Information shared with these third-party services will be treated and stored in accordance with their respective privacy policies and our privacy policy.

Email Marketing: We use the information provided by users to send relevant information to our users and customers. By registering as a user and placing an order you authorize us to use your information for email marketing. We will use third party services to conduct email marketing, so we may share certain information with some of these third parties for the sole and exclusive purpose of sending emails through email marketing and in accordance with our privacy policy.

SMS text messages. We use SMS text messages to send different types of messages, such as notifications about your order or special content, such as offers on our products. By placing an order and opting to receive our SMS messages, you agree to these terms and conditions.

By entering your phone number in the checkout form, you consent to receive SMS text notifications from us (order notifications, including abandoned cart reminders) and offers on our products. Please note that your consent to receive or not receive these messages is not a condition of any purchase on our website. Your phone number and purchase information will be shared with the SMS marketing platform we use. This data will be used to send you targeted marketing messages and notifications. When sending text messages, your phone number will be shared with our applicable text messaging carrier in order to fulfill the sending and delivery of the messages.

If you wish to unsubscribe from receiving text messages and marketing notifications, please respond with a STOP to any SMS message we send you. You understand and agree that alternative methods of unsubscribing, such as the use of alternative wording or requests, will not be considered a reasonable means of unsubscribing. Message and data usage fees may apply. If you have any questions, you may contact us for more information.

Business Transfers. In the event that Gifty Code creates, merges with, or is acquired by another entity, your information will most likely be transferred. Gifty Code will email you or place a prominent notice on our website before your information becomes subject to another privacy policy.

Protection of Gifty Code and others. We release personal information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce or apply our Terms and conditions and other agreements, or protect the rights, property, or safety of Gifty Code, our users or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

With Your Consent. Other than as set out above, you will receive notice when personally identifiable information about you might go to third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to share the information.

Anonymous Information. Gifty Code uses the anonymous browsing information collected automatically by our servers primarily to help us administer and improve the website. We may also use aggregated anonymous information to provide information about the website to potential business partners and other unaffiliated entities. This information is not personally identifiable.


We work to protect the security of your information during transmission by using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you provide through the website. If transactions are processed on the website, transaction information is transmitted to and from the website in encrypted form using industry standard SSL connections to help protect such information from interception. We restrict authorized access to your personal information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to know that information and to those persons you have authorized to have access to that information. Gifty Code follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once Gifty Code receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Gifty Code strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We will not sell, distribute, or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required by law to do so.


Users who provide information through our website, as data subjects and data owners, have the right to access, rectify, download or delete their information, as well as to restrict and object to certain processing of their information. While some of these rights apply generally, others apply only in certain limited circumstances. We describe these rights below:

  • Access and portability: to access and know what information is stored in our servers, you can send us your request through our contact information.
  • Rectify, Restrict, Limit and/or Delete: You can also rectify, restrict, limit or delete much of your information.
  • Right to be informed: Users of our website will be informed, upon request, about what data we collect, how it is used, how long it is retained and whether it is shared with third parties.
  • Object: When we process your information based on our legitimate interests as explained above, or in the public interest, you may object to this processing in certain circumstances. In such cases, we will stop processing your information unless we have compelling legitimate reasons to continue processing it or where it is necessary for legal reasons.
  • Revoke consent: Where you have previously given your consent, such as to allow us to process and store your personal information, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing and storage of your information at any time. For example, you may withdraw your consent by updating your settings. In certain cases, we may continue to process your information after you have withdrawn your consent if we have a legal basis for doing so or if your withdrawal of consent was limited to certain processing activities.
  • Complaint: If you wish to file a complaint about our use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local supervisory authority. Users can exercise all these rights by contacting us through the contact information or the contact page.
  • Rights related to automated decision-making, including profiling: website users may request that we provide a copy of the automated processing activities we conduct if they believe that data is being unlawfully processed.

Users or owners of the personal information they provide through the website may exercise these rights over their personal information at any time and without any limitation by sending us their request through our contact information.



We comply with the requirements of personal data protection regulations regarding the protection of personal data of minors. We do not collect any information from children under the age of 18. Our website and products are intended for persons over the age of 18. If we become aware that a person under the age of 18 has provided us with information, we will take the necessary steps to delete that information and terminate that person's account.


Except as otherwise expressly included in this privacy policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information Gifty Code collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether other users or suppliers on Gifty Code, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Gifty Code does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. Gifty Code is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of other websites on the Internet, even those linked to or from our website. Gifty Code encourages you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.
