Personal Information collected automatically:

We receive and store information whenever you interact with our Platform or use our services that describe how you interacted with them. giftgaming automatically receives and records information on our server logs including, where applicable, your unique mobile device ID, the application you use where the giftgaming Platform is running, IP address, timestamps, and the coupon redemption you requested.

Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Platform and its components, including reward- related and gameplay-related information, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show.

Such services and features are beyond giftgaming’s control and giftgaming is NOT AFFILIATED with Apple, Inc.

Cookies:

giftgaming uses cookies from time to time to enhance the user experience (ie. so the user does not have to keep logging in or giving their preferences) as well as to store gender and age range (to serve the best and most relevant coupons).

gifts were delivered to players

Business Transfers: In the event of a merger, acquisition, reorganisation, change of control, sale of all or substantially all of its assets, or the sale of an individual mobile or web properties owned by us, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred and we may therefore transfer and/or disclose your Personal Information to the prospective seller or buyer of such business or assets or to a third party as a part of such merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale. In addition, if We go out of business or enter bankruptcy, Personal Information would be one of the assets transferred to or acquired by a third party.
