Scope and Nature of Policy
This Policy will notify you of what information is collected when you place an order for one or more of our gift boxes and/or receive other attendant services should we offer them (“products and services”) and/or otherwise visit our website, and how the information is collected, used and stored. We will describe our efforts to maintain the security of your personal information, and other details concerning your personal information and our policies. By the term, “personal information”, we include information, if other than about you, identifying the name and shipping address of the girlfriend to whom you intend delivery of the gift box. Please note that this Policy does not apply to our use of aggregated data from which personally identifiable characteristics have been removed. We do retain the right to use aggregated data in any way we feel advances the interests of our business.
We do not knowingly solicit personal information from persons under the age of 18 and do not consider persons under that age to be part of our demographic audience.
Collection and Use of Information
The primary reason we collect personal information about you is to process your order for our products and services, provide them to you or your recipient girlfriend as requested, confirm customer identity, to enable us to better communicate with you by helping us respond to your contacts more effectively, and to contact you to provide information about your order as well as other information, such as about our other products and services and special promotions, we believe could be of interest. In the ordinary course of our business we gather personal information about you including:
Required order information you provide such as name, shipping and billing address, phone number and email address to establish your gift box order and verify your identity. Order information includes name and shipping address of your intended girlfriend recipient. Your email address may also be used to send you notifications, special offers and e-newsletters.
Billing information you provide, such as a credit card account number and expiration date, as required to process payment for your order.
If within the checkout process you are provided with an opportunity to create an account with us and elect to do so, we will create a profile for you containing your order history and stored information you provided for your easy access.
Information about your transaction(s) with us, enabling us to better customize our products and services for you. Please also note that if you do contact our customer service (by email or phone) we may ask you for information needed to identify and verify you in our system as well as eliciting customer feedback from you that we may elect to store.

We endeavor to apply this acquired knowledge to improve the content of our website and enhance its value and appearance to you.
Please note that though we may place ads that advertise our products and services to you on websites like Facebook and Instagram you may subscribe and have provided your information to, we receive no information from them about you.

· Keep count of your return visits to our website
· Accumulate and report anonymous, aggregate, statistical information on website usage

You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. Please note that if you reject some or all cookies, it is possible that, if not now but in the future, your experience at our website might not be complete.

We may disclose your personal information to other parties for a variety of purposes as described in this section.
We may disclose your personal information to other companies we may appoint to undertake services that help us to administer your order. This may include our web host and e-commerce platform provider, mail house, customer care provider, payment processor and others we may so engage. These parties are required to use your personal information solely for the purpose of performing their tasks ( e.g. fulfilling orders, delivering packages, administering customer service, processing credit card payments, etc.) on behalf of, and under our instructions and to observe the relevant portions of our Policy with respect to the information disclosed.
We may disclose your personal information as we reasonably believe is necessary to protect our business, to comply with applicable law, to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of you or others, and to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. We may also legally disclose information about you to third parties when the law requires our cooperation, for example, in response to a subpoena or in response to a request by a law enforcement agency. We, of course, will if we are compelled to do any of this always be mindful of the privacy interests you have.
By placing an order with us and sharing personal information about yourself and any intended gift box recipient, if not yourself, to complete your transaction with us, you are consenting to the use and disclosure of this personal information for the purposes described above. We will not make any non-marketing use of this personal information other than in connection with the uses described above which we consider to be authorized, unless we give you notice of that particular further use and provide you with the opportunity to inform us not to engage in that use or we are otherwise permitted by law or prevailing industry standards to make such use without providing you with the opportunity to inform us not to.
We may from time to time if you have transacted with us utilize your personal information to contact you to promote and offer other of our products and services to you. We expect this would be by email. You can choose to stop receiving marketing messages from us at any time by simply clicking the “unsubscribe” at the bottom of the email or indicate your intention to opt out by writing to us at the address listed under the Contact Information section below.
We will not share your personal information with any third party for marketing purposes.

California Residents: If you are a California resident you may request and receive from us no more than once per calendar year a list of categories of your personal information disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, along with the names and addresses of those third parties, by submitting a specific request for this information to us using the address information listed under the Contact Information section below.
The following notice is relevant to any customer, if any, transacting with us whose personal information is transferred from the European Union and/or Switzerland to the United States for our use in connection with the transaction. We and our providers comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S Privacy Shield Framework in regard to the collection, use and retention of any personal information so transferred (from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States). If, with respect to any such information transfer, there is any conflict between the policies in this Policy and the Privacy Shield Principles of the aforementioned Frameworks, the latter shall govern.
Accessing and Deleting Your Personal Information
We respect your privacy and use the personal information we have received from you conscientiously and with full disclosure. We keep secure and confidential all customer data. Please refer to our security statement below. If at any time you wish to access your information in order to update, modify or delete it or you wish to obtain a copy of your personal information on file, please contact us using the address information listed under the Contact Information section below. As soon as reasonably possible upon receipt of your request, we will take the action so requested. If you request that we delete your information, we may make that information unavailable for use rather than fully deleting it from our system.
Transferability of Information
In the event we go through a business transition, such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, your personal information will likely be among the assets transferred. Any successor company will be required to observe the relevant portions of this Policy with respect to your personal information (including any choices you have made under our Policy to limit the use of your information).
We may change this Policy at any time by posting updated versions which include revisions to this Policy. If we change our Policy in a way that is less protective of your privacy, then the change will not apply to our use of any of your personal information that was collected by us before the change was made, unless we provide you with the opportunity to direct us not to make the new use contemplated.
Compliance With Applicable Law
Where our collection and use of your personal information is governed by state and federal laws of the United States, we will comply with such laws and will limit disclosures concerning your personal information accordingly.
Our database is protected by industry standard technology, ensuring the security of your personal information you have shared with us. We have incorporated within the parts of our website where personal financial information is requested and entered industry standard secure server software allowing this information you provide online to be kept secure via the latest encryption and authentication techniques used in the industry. We do this so that you can safely and with confidence disclose to us your payment information in a secure environment (via a secure encrypted link between the computer you are using and our server). Your browser will also inform you by way of a Site Security Certificate of the presence of this secure area.
We hope our Policy answers any questions you may have about our collection and use of your personal information.
