Browser Cookies

Giftster uses a feature of your Internet Web browser called a "cookie" to assign a unique identification to your computer. Cookies are files that your Web browser places on your computer's hard drive. Giftster creates and then uses these cookie files to track your clicks as you go through the Giftster Web site. Giftster uses cookies to keep track of items you purchase, to tell us whether you have visited Giftster previously, and to help us determine whether you came to Giftster from a particular Internet link or banner advertisement.

Cookies help save and retrieve passwords used on the Giftster site and information on your past purchases and other preferences, so you don't have to re-enter this information every time you visit the Giftster Web site.

Monetization of Web Links

Some links from Giftster to third party ecommerce sites are monetized by third party services. Giftster gets "credit" for its part in helping match the buyer with the right item from the right seller for the gift recipient. This monetization is automatic and transparent and does not affect the item price. This disclosure is provided in accordance with the United States Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR § 255.5
