GiftCast web servers may seek to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive which allows the server to identify the computer when it visits GiftCast again, in order to track statistical information about navigation to, and throughout, certain areas of our Site, and navigation to GiftCast promotions on third party Web sites. This cookie is not used to obtain your name or any personal data, and the information that is tracked is used only for internal purposes. However, if you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed. When a member visitor performs a search within the Site, GiftCast may record information identifying the member visitor or linking the member visitor to the search performed. GiftCast may also record limited information for every member visit and search request, for example, in the form of a Web or Site log, and use that information to provide member visitors with a better experience while visiting our Site, to solve technical problems with the services available directly or indirectly in connection with the Site, and to calculate overall usage statistics.
