In order to use the SocialWish Web Application, you must first complete the registration form by creating a user name and password. During registration you are required to give contact information (such as name and email address). We use this information to contact you about the services on Our site in which you have expressed interest. You have the option to provide Us with demographic information (such as location and gender) and We encourage you to submit this information so We can provide you a more personalized experience on Our site.
If you participate in SocialWish services by actually contributing to a wish, We request certain personally identifiable information from you on Our payment form. You must provide contact information (such as name, email, and shipping address) and financial information (such as credit card number and expiration date) and other information (such as purpose of the transaction). We use this information for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If We have trouble processing an order, We will also use this information to contact you.
When you register with the SocialWish service, Our registration form may require you to give Us certain information such as your name, email address, and zip code. SocialWish will also collect other information that you volunteer to Us through use of Our service. We refer to this information as "Personally Identifiable Information." You may always choose not to provide such personally identifiable information. However, this may limit Our ability to provide you with a specific services, features, and content. We may also collect demographic and other data - which may include personally identifiable information - through surveys and forms that you may or may not choose to participate in. If you contribute funds to a SocialWish gift or collect funds via SocialWish, you may be required to enter your credit card number and information, as well as your shipping address and/or other contact information.
In order to send messages to your participants through the SocialWish service, We require that you submit to a current, valid email addresses for each of your participants. When you send messages to your participants through Our service (e.g., a SocialWish invitation or reminder), We collect and retain the email addresses and other pertinent contact information of those persons. Except as described below in the Section titled "When We May Disclose Your Personally Identifiable Information, Data or Participant Contact Information," We do not sell, share, or otherwise provide organizer or participant contact information that you submit to any third party. Cookies: SocialWish wants to optimize your experience by ensuring that the most relevant information, promotions, and offers are displayed to you while using the SocialWish web site. A common manner in which to do this is by placing cookies on your computer. Cookies are strings of text and numbers that can identify your computer to Us when you visit Our site. IP Address: When you visit Our site, We log standard information such as your IP address - which is a number that can be used to identify your location and Internet Service Provider - along with the URL from which you came to Our site and the URLs visited on Our site. A URL is the full address of a Web site page, which may or may not contain personally identifiable information about the person who is viewing it. When We send messages to you or others, We may provide a URL link to the SocialWish site that contains an alphanumeric identifier, which allows Us to identify the email recipient so that We can personalize Our content for that individual.
Information obtained from third parties - In order to protect you from fraud or other misconduct, We may obtain information about you from third parties to verify the information you provide. For example, We may use card authorization and fraud screening services to verify that your credit or debit card information and address match the information that you provided to Us. Transaction information - When you use the SocialWish payment service to conduct a transaction, We collect information about each transaction, including the transaction amount, a description provided by the organizer of the wish, goods or services being requested, the names of the participants and beneficiaries, and the payment method and instrument used.
We use an outside credit card processing company to bill you for goods and services and to process the disbursement of collected funds to the wish maker. To Our knowledge, these companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes.
We use other third parties (such as Payoneer) to provide payment services on Our site. When you sign up for Payoneer, We will share your name, Event transaction ID (amount, date), and email address as necessary for the third party to provide that service. These third parties are prohibited from using your personally identifiable information for any other purpose.
Special Offers and Updates - We will occasionally send you information on new products and services, special deals, and promotions. You can sign up for these emails from Us on Our registration page. Out of respect for your privacy, We provide all users with the option to not receive these types of notifications. Please see the "Choice and Opt-out" section for more details.

Service-related Announcements - We will send you service-related announcements on rare occasions, and only when it is necessary to do so.

Generally, you may not opt-out of these communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Profile - We store information that We collect through cookies, log files, clear gifs, and/or third party sources to create a "profile" of your preferences. We tie your personally identifiable information and your participation and purchase history to information in your profile in order to provide tailored promotions and marketing offers, and to improve the content of the site for you. We do share your profile (in aggregate form only and not in a personally identifiable form) with other third parties.
SocialWish does not sell, share or otherwise provide any "Personally Identifiable Information" you give to Us with any Business Partner without your consent, which may be obtained through an opt-in or opt-out request (see Use of Your Personally Identifiable Information by Business Partners below), unless required by law, court order or as required to technically operate the service, or to complete a transaction or order.

These types of communications may contain commercial messages, such as banner ads and special offers. In addition, We use your Personally Identifiable Information to help Us provide you with personalized content, advertising, and commercial messages (collectively, "Content").
We use your Participant's contact information to allow them to respond to and comment on your SocialWish event invitation. At your request, We may send Reminders to your guests. We also may send a post-event email to you and your guests. If you use Our Reminders service, We use the information you provide in your Reminders to send it to you and others to whom you have requested it be sent. SocialWish does not sell, share or otherwise provide any participants' contact information you give to Us with any Business Partner, unless required by law, court order or as required to technically operate the service. If you feel your email address was improperly included in an event participant list, or that you are being contacted fraudulently, you should contact SocialWish immediately at support@SocialWish.com. We will suspend or delete your email address from the event participant list and investigate the organizer.
