Welcome to the web site or mobile application (collectively the “Platform”) of Quintessential Gifts, LLC, a Minnesota limited liability company doing business as Qgiftshop.com, and its subsidiaries and/or affiliates (“Quintessential Gifts”, “us” or “we”). Quintessential Gifts operates a website where users can purchase food care packages and other gifts for friends, family and colleagues (“Services”).
Information We Collect
Here are some examples of the types of personal information Quintessential Gifts may collect:
Personal Data and Identifying Information (e.g. name, email address, location);
- Payment processing information, including but not limited to credit cards or other payment methods;
- Registration information; and
- Any 3rd party data which may be synced with your account.
Some non-personal information may be automatically received and stored as non-identifiable personal information. Such information is collected passively using various technologies and cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. Examples of this non-personal information include the type of internet browser or mobile device you used, any website from which you have come to the Platform, your operating system location data (which is anonymous, and when you log in through the Platform you may be asked if you consent to the Services accessing your location, which can be updated). We may store such non-personal information ourselves or it may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents, or service providers. We may use such non-personal information to assist us in providing effective Services and to collect broad demographic information for aggregate use.
Use of Personal Information
The personal information we collect allows us to provide the Services as described in the Terms of Service. We may send you newsletters or other communications, and we may contact you regarding Services we provide or that you request. We may provide information to third party service providers, subsidiaries, affiliates, or other partners that will help us or allow us to process the Services that you request. We use demographic information to better understand our customers and improve our products and services.
We also use personal information to help create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content, and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes. We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to verify the age of account holders to ensure they are of legal age to use the Services we provide.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about transaction or transfers, and about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Quintessential Gifts, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Quintessential Gifts’ products, services, and customer communications. We may also share or disclose your personal information with our affiliates and subsidiaries. We may share or disclose your personal information to protect our customers; to maintain the security of our services; to detect, prevent, or report fraud, criminal activity, or violations of our terms of service/use; to protect the health and safety of our customers or the general public; and to protect our rights and property.
Some websites may belong to ad networks that use your browsing history across websites to choose which ads to display on their sites; the displayed ads may include advertising for Quintessential Gifts. Websites may also offer their own opt-out methods for interest-based advertising.
In addition to the sharing described elsewhere in this Policy, we may share personal information with companies, organizations or individuals outside of the Company in a de-identified format when we have your consent to do so. We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information.
We will share personal information with third party companies, organizations, or individuals outside of the Company if we have a good-faith belief that access, use, preservation, or disclosure of the information is reasonably necessary to:
- Meet any applicable law, regulation, subpoena, legal process, or enforceable governmental request.
- Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.
- Detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security, or technical issues.
- Protect against harm to the rights, property, or safety of Quintessential Gifts, our users, customers or the public as required or permitted by law.
Use of Other Information
We also collect data in a form that does not, on its own, permit direct association with any specific individual. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose non-personal information for any purpose. The following are some examples of non-personal information that we collect and how we may use it:
- We may collect information such as occupation, language, zip code, area code, unique device identifier, referrer URL, location, and the time zone where the Qgiftshop.com App or Content is used so that we can better understand customer behavior and improve our products, services, and advertising.
- We may collect and store details of how you use our services and/or Content, including search queries. This information may be used to improve the relevancy of results provided by our services. Except in limited instances to ensure quality of our services over the Internet, such information will not be associated with your IP address.
- With your explicit consent, we may collect data about how you use your device, the applications and website in order to help our developers improve the apps and website.
- If we do combine non-personal information with personal information the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
Disclosure to Third Parties
At times Quintessential Gifts may make personal information available to strategic partners that work with Quintessential Gifts to provide products, services, or Content, or that help Quintessential Gifts market to customers or Users. Personal information will only be shared by Quintessential Gifts to provide or improve our products, services, Content, and advertising; it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes nor will it in any event be sold to any third party.
Quintessential Gifts shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, payment processing, fulfilling User orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing User data, providing User service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting User research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Quintessential Gifts operates.
It may be necessary − by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence − for Quintessential Gifts to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our Terms of Service or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
