How your data is used

We use your name within the app to personalise it for you, and in messages when you send gift idea requests to others so they know who it’s from.

The information we store about those you send messages to is kept solely for that purpose so you can manage these requests within the app. We never use this data for anything else.

If you opt into Analytics we collect details about your phone and use of the app to monitor how the app is being used for security and performance purposes, to identify and fix errors and to improve your experience of the app.

We do NOT use the data you provide for marketing purposes nor do we sell or share this data with third parties.

Our technology and advertising partners collect their own data from your device and use of the app (but not any of the data you enter into the app itself).

They act as Data Processors and are under strict terms related to how they can use it.

They will use the data they collect to personalize ads shown to you within the app. You can opt out of this personalisation of ads at any time within the Settings of your phone.To find out more, tap below to view the full Privacy Policy.
