We provide the information to trusted partners who work on behalf of or with 1800GiftPortal.com under confidentiality agreements. 1800GiftPortal.com works with vendors, partners, advertisers, and other service providers in different industries and categories of business. These businesses such as shipping companies and credit card companies may have access to certain personal information needed to perform their functions. But these companies are under obligation not to use that information for any other purpose. By law, we sometimes must release account and other personal information when we believe release is necessary to comply with law; enforce or apply our Conditions of Use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of 1800GiftPortal.com, our users, or others. This may include exchanging information with State or Central officials, as well as other companies and organizations to increase fraud protection and credit risk reduction. This is for our customers' own good and protects all of us.

- You can opt to receive email promotions for a specific section. This can be done at the time of registration.
- We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to the 1800GiftPortal.com service, such as service announcements, administrative messages and Newsletter, that are considered part of your 1800GiftPortal.com account, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.
Any information we learn from our customers about them helps us only to serve them better and improve their shopping experience on our site. Any information you enter on our website or give to us in any other way is stored securely on our servers. Many websites, for example, use "cookies," and we do as well. These are used to recognize when you return to 1800GiftPortal.com through your browser and to follow your movements through the site to better help us in making a site that you will enjoy using.
We also generally receive a confirmation when you open e-mail from 1800GiftPortal.com, though only if your computer and service provider supports such capabilities. This way, we know if, for instance, if you've received an answer to a question you may have asked, or notifications about an order you may have placed. If you do not want to receive e-mail or other mail from us, please change your Preferences within your account. Occasionally via email, we provide a product recommendation or special offer that we believe will interest you. Every email of this type is carefully reviewed by our staff for quality and value, as, frankly, we dislike getting "junk" email as much as anyone. Any offers you receive from us will have met specific standards and may, of course, be ignored, but we hope you find them as valuable as we do.
Confidentiality and Security
We limit access to personal information about you to employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to protect personal information about you.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software during any order transmission to encrypt valuable information customers input. Your account password is also protected, as we know how important it is to allow only authorized access to your account. Be sure to sign off when finished using a shared computer and never give your password to anyone you aren't sure you can trust.
