Who we are
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Information collection and use
Gift Sensations may automatically collect anonymous information about its visitors to monitor our site’s traffic and help continually provide a better user experience. None of this information is personally identifiable in any way.
Gift Sensations collects personal information provided by you during purchases. Your name, address, phone number, email address and those details of the gift’s recipient ensure Gift Sensations can deliver your order correctly. If there are any issues, customer service staff may use these details to contact you to resolve any enquiries we might need to ask regarding your order. Gift Sensations does not disclose any personally identifiable information to any third party unless required to do so by law. Any personal information you disclose to us is protected with the highest level of security and care.
Our email subscription service is an opt-in service, allowing you to subscribe or unsubscribe at any time. Gift Sensations will never knowingly send you unsolicited electronic mail messages without your consent, complying with the Australian Spam Act 2003.
The Gift Sensations shopping basket is secured using industry standard protection. Crucially, credit card payments are made through a PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliant payment gateway with Sectigo SSL 128-bit SHA-2 encryption to ensure the utmost safety of your personal details.
Alternatively, you may choose to place your order offline by telephoning in your order. For your security, credit card information is destroyed after the order has been completed.
