The information gathered when you interact with the Gaveling falls into two main categories:
1) Personal information. Personal information includes but is not limited to personal information you supply when you sign up, subscribe, order, complete a survey, register, enter any kind of contest or provide your email address or any other kind of information about yourself; and
2) Information collected through technology, which includes tracking information collected by us as well as third parties.
Each of these two categories are discussed in further detail below.
• (A) Information you give us directly : Registration to use the Gaveling application or website may require you to supply specific personal information, including but not limited to your first and last name, e-mail address, title, etc. If you participate in a contest or other offer by Gaveling, we may also ask you for personal information. We reserve the right to store this personal information.
• (B) Information you give us indirectly by linking your social media accounts : As of today’s writing, you will soon be able to register or enhance your profile by linking Facebook, Google, Twitter, or other social media accounts to your Gaveling account. By doing this, you are authorizing us to collect, store, and use what they send us. Social media registration features may collect your IP address, the page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our web site. Note that you can unlink your social media accounts at any time.
