Information We Collect during a Sales Transaction
The primary function of Instagift.com is to facilitate the online sale of virtual gift cards, event tickets, and deal vouchers (herein identified as "instagifts") to various restaurants and businesses.

Information We Store
It is necessary for us to collect credit card and personal information in order to authorize the release of funds from your credit card provider. While we must collect this information to successfully process a credit card transaction, not all of this information is stored on our servers after the completion of your order. Instagift.com stores your email address, an encrypted password that allows you to access your account within the Instagift.com system, your first and last name, your city, and your state. Instagift.com does not store your street address, your phone number, or your credit card number, expiration date, or pin. Credit card and street address information is given to us each time you make a purchase in the Instagift.com system. They are passed to the credit card company through a secure encrypted gateway for authorization, and are not subsequently saved on the Instagift.com servers.
