We are committed to conducting our business in accordance with the following outlined principles in an effort to ensure the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Similar to many other websites you probably visit on a regular basis, XboxOneGifts.com utilizes a well established standard internet technology called “cookies.” (See explanation below.) Our web server logs may also collect information about how our website is used and how visitors interact with our site. Information gathered through the use of cookies and server logs may include, but is not necessarily limited to, information such as your IP address, the date and time of visits to our site, which pages are viewed, time spent browsing at our site, which links are clicked on our site, and general details about the web sites you may visit just prior to and just after your visit to our site.

 

What is a “Cookie?”

A cookie is essentially a very small file sent by web servers to a web browser where the file is stored. Cookies are typically a very small text document that often includes an anonymous unique identifier to identify you when you use and return to our site. When you visit a Web site, that site’s computer asks your computer or device for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each unique website on the internet can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences are set allow it. However, in order to protect your privacy, your browser only allows a web site to request and access it’s own cookies it has already sent to you and not the cookies that were by other sites.

A cookie is used to send information from a visitor or internet user’s device back to the web server. This allows the site or server to identify and track web browsers.

There are typically two major types of internet cookies: session and persistent. Session cookies are automatically deleted and removed from your computer or device when you close your web browser. Persistent cookies on the other hand remain on your computer or device until they are deleted or reach their pre-defined expiration date.

The majority of websites on the internet employ the use of cookies and related technology. These files are the reason you can remain logged in to and recognized by many of your favorite and most visited websites.
