Protection of Confidential and Proprietary Information during Enrollment and Due Diligence: The information that you and Gyft may exchange during the enrollment process and the information that you provide to Gyft during due diligence is considered confidential and proprietary information of the disclosing party.

Gyft customer service will contact you to finalize your account terms and to receive your initial payment. All payments made by you must be either (a) via wire transfer from your bank account; or (b) by credit card (American Express, Discover, Visa or MasterCard). If you pay for your purchases by credit card, you will be ineligible for any discounts that may be offered by Gyft. By making the purchase using a credit card, you also acknowledge that you are authorized to use the designated credit card, you authorize us to charge your purchase to that credit card, and you authorize us to process and store your payment and related information. Payment card processing fees may apply even if the credit card has expired or changed by the time you submit the charges. You are responsible for resolving any problems we may encounter in order to proceed with your bulk Gift Card order. Please be aware that your initial payment by credit card may result in a delay in processing your order.
In the event that we do not receive your payment (including, for example, because your credit card cannot be verified, is invalid or is not otherwise acceptable), we may suspend or cancel your account and your bulk Gift Card order will automatically cancel. You are responsible for resolving any problem we encounter in order to proceed with your order. You will be able to view your account balance, for future purchases, by going to partner.gyft.com. You may also add additional funds to your account by contacting your Gyft sales representative.
Restricting Access to Account Funds for Investigations
We may restrict access to funds in your account to allow us to investigate the use of your account, resolve any pending dispute, in response to a court order or if otherwise requested by law enforcement or any governmental entity. We may restrict access to funds in your account for the time that it takes for us to complete any pending investigation or resolve a pending dispute. We also may restrict access to your funds as required by law, court order, or if we receive a lawful request from law enforcement or governmental entity.
GIFT CARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
No Return of Gift Cards
All purchases that you make on the Gyft Site are final and the Gift Cards that you purchase in bulk are non-refundable and non-returnable, provided, however, that if a Gift Card does not function, we may, in our sole discretion, either refund you the Gift Card purchase amount or replace the defective Gift Card with an alternative Gift Card or with products or services of equal value for the same Gift Card Vendor, defined below. If you have any questions or problems with your order, please contact us at www.gyft.com/contact-us/.
We attempt to be as accurate as possible and to eliminate errors on the products that we sale; however, Gyft does not represent or warrant that any Gift Card and information about the Gift Card (including the description, Vendor information or pricing information) provided is accurate, complete, reliable, current or error-free. In the event of an error in an order confirmation, in processing a Gift Card purchase or otherwise, we reserve the right to correct such error and revise your order accordingly (including charging the correct price) or to cancel the order and refund any amount charged.
Use of Gift Cards
The Gift Cards that you purchase are issued and activated by participating third-party merchants, retailers and vendors (collectively “Vendors”). After purchasing a Gift Card, these Terms will no longer apply and the Gift Card will be governed by certain terms and conditions established by the issuing Vendor. Depending on the applicable law of your jurisdiction and the promotional nature of certain Gift Cards, Vendors may set expiration dates for such Gift Cards, in addition to other restrictions and requirements. You (or the recipient of the Gift Card) should review and familiarize yourself with all applicable Vendor terms and conditions. If you have questions regarding the applicable Vendor terms, please contact the issuing Vendor.
As issuers of the Gift Cards, Vendors (and not Gyft) are fully responsible for all aspects of their Gift Card programs. Vendors are also responsible for any and all liabilities, damages and costs suffered by you (or the recipient of the Gift Card) in connection with your purchase and the use of their Gift Card. While Gyft strives to work with reputable Vendors, Gyft has no liability for (i) the sale of products or services through the use of any Gift Card; and (ii) any Vendor’s failure to honor a Gift Card.
Documentation of Bulk Transactions and Account Inquiries
At the time of your bulk purchase, you will receive an email receipt for the transaction. Retain the receipt for your records. You can access your current balance on your account after each purchase at partner.gyft.com.
If you think a receipt is wrong or you have a question concerning your account, you may send a letter to us at: Gyft, 150 West Evelyn Ave, Mountain View, CA 94041, or visit www.gyft.com/contact-us as soon as you can. We must hear from you no later than 60 days after your purchase/transaction date and you must provide the following information: (i) your name and your company name; (ii) a description of the error or the transaction you are unsure about, and an explanation as to why you believe it is an error or why you need more information; (iii) the dollar amount of the suspected error; and (iv) your account username or email address. If you tell us verbally, we may require that you send us your complaint or question in writing within 10 business days.
No Liability for Gift Cards Subsequent to Delivery
Gyft is not responsible for any value lost from a Gift Card subsequent to your purchase and our delivery to you. To reduce the likelihood of such a loss, however, Gyft recommends protecting your computers, systems and devices with an appropriate password.
Disputes with Merchants
You (or the recipient of the Gift Card) agree to make a good faith effort to settle all disputes about purchases made using the Gift Card with the merchant who accepted the Gift Card.
The expiration of your Gift Card is dependent on the specific Vendor policies. We have no control over the expiration date, however, most Gift Cards have no less than a 5 year expiration date, and many have no expiration date. After the Gift Card has expired or is deactivated, it is no longer valid. All transactions will be declined.
In addition to your purchase of Gift Cards in bulk, your enrollment and account includes access to the following:
- Customer service via live chat during chat hours;
- Customizable emails to the recipients of your Gift Cards;
- Access to your balance;
- Order confirmation emails and ongoing email communications from Gyft.

With respect to all Gyft products, risk of loss and title for such products pass to you when you complete your purchase of the applicable product or Gift Cards.

In providing Gift Cards, we disclaim any duty or responsibility other than those expressly set forth in these Terms and the Terms of Service on www.gyft.com. Among other things, Gyft is not liable for the following:
- If your transaction or bulk order for Gift Cards would exceed the funds available.
- If your connectivity, computer, system or device is not working properly.

Termination or Suspension
We reserve the right to close your account or take other appropriate actions if you violate these Terms or any policies or terms on www.gyft.com in whole or part.
We may modify or close your account for any reason or no reason at any time with or without notice, and without liability of any kind or nature to you or any third party. We may also suspend your access to your account (including the funds in your account) if you (a) have violated these Terms, (b) pose an unacceptable risk to us, or (c) provide any false, incomplete, inaccurate, or misleading information or otherwise engage in fraudulent or illegal conduct.

You may terminate or close your account at any time. Upon closure of an account, any pending transactions will be cancelled and we will erase your balance from your account. Any funds that we are holding in custody for you at the time of closure, less any applicable fees, will be paid out to you in a reasonable time. If an investigation is pending at the time you close your account, we may hold your funds as described herein. If you are later determined to be entitled to some or all of the funds in dispute, we will release those funds to you.
Upon termination of your account, you will remain liable for all amounts due under your account up to and including the date of termination.
