Once the payment(s) is confirmed, the Gift Card will be sent to you or the Recipient or applied to a Group Gift (as defined below) using the eGifter Platform Service. Additional measures may be necessary to ensure the authenticity of your transaction and your payment information.
Unless otherwise stated at the time a Gift Card is purchased, the Gift Card price does not include sales taxes, which may be charged to you separately by the Merchant at the time the Gift Card is redeemed. For purposes of these Terms, “Merchant” means those Merchants whose gift cards are available for purchase on our website.

eGifter Platform Service
The Platform Service may allow you to easily purchase Gift Cards for yourself, someone else, or add funds to Gift Cards creating a Group Gift for the gift recipient (“Recipient”), (collectively “User” or “Users”).
Gift Cards may be delivered to the Recipient via email, text, mail, or via our Web or mobile application. All aspects regarding the use and redemption of Gift Cards are subject to the applicable Merchant’s policies (see Gift Card section below). To use the Platform Service, a User must create an account with eGifter and may have the option to create a password to access the account. To purchase or contribute to the purchase of a Gift Card, a User will choose a Recipient, choose a purchase amount or enter a contribution amount toward a Group Gift, optionally personalize the gift, complete the purchase process and in the case of a Group Gift, invite others to contribute to the value of the Gift Card. To purchase or make a contribution you must use a valid payment method, such as a credit card or accepted alternate payment method.
You should not authorize any other person or entity to use your unique User ID. You are responsible for preventing such unauthorized use. You are solely responsible for any and all access to the Site and your use of the Platform Services. If you become aware of any unauthorized activity, you agree to notify us immediately.
Although the Platform Service may enable you to purchase or contribute to the purchase of a Gift Card, the only transaction that you will have with eGifter is for your payment toward the Gift Card and fees charged (if any) for using the Platform Service. We do not have any control over the intended Recipient, or any other Users of the Platform Service, nor do we have any control over the Merchant. Consequently, we are not and will not be liable for any loss or damage that you may incur as a result of your interactions and transactions with any Users or Merchant, including any loss or damage resulting from: (i) participating in a Group Gift; (ii) late or failed delivery of any product or service purchased through Merchant, including Gift Cards; (iii) any defect or other quality aspect of any product or service; (iv) breach of any Merchant warranty, express or implied whatsoever; or (v) Merchant’s failure to redeem the Gift Card. The extent of our liability to you is limited to the lesser of the (i) the purchase price for the Gift Card; or (ii) the face amount of the Gift Card. The dealings between you, and any Users or the Merchant are solely between you and the applicable User or Merchant, as the case may be. We are not responsible for changes in any Merchant’s Gift Card terms and conditions; including any price change that may occur after you purchase or contribute to a Gift Card, but prior to redemption for the applicable product or service. You understand that, except for eGifter Choice Card(s) we do not issue Gift Cards through the Platform Service. The Merchant has the liability for the redemption of the Gift Card for goods or services. We have no obligation to resolve any dispute between you and any other User or Merchant. Users may resolve a dispute directly with each other or with Merchant. If you have or participate in any dispute or its resolution, you expressly agree to indemnify and hold harmless eGifter and its officers, employees, members, managers, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents, representatives, and successors ("Indemnified Parties") from and against all third-party claims, costs, losses, liabilities and expenses (including damage awards, settlement amounts, and reasonable attorneys' fees and costs, whether incurred as the result of a third-party claim or a claim to enforce this Term), and other damages of any kind, known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, liquidated or otherwise (collectively, "Losses") related to such dispute.
