Gift List Media Terms & Conditions


All content of the website and database is owned, operated, and distributed by Effervescent Communications LLC, a California limited liability company (referred to in these terms and conditions as “us”, “we”, “our”, etc.) DBA Gift List Media. Subscribers and potential subscribers (including persons or companies who sign up for a test drive) are referred to as “Licensee”, “subscriber”, “you”, or “client”. The Gift List is referred to in these terms as “Database”, “Website”, “List”, “Subscription” and “License”. 

The Gift List and The Editorial Look Book are property of Gift List Media. If you do not agree to any of these terms, YOU SHOULD not use the SERVICE. These Terms of Service apply to all users, including potential subscribers, and users who have subscribed for services. 

Each subscription is limited to the individual that is listed on the subscription/order. The Licensee agrees that this license is for use by personnel at the licensed organization only and is limited to personal and in-house company use. Additional logins are required for additional users within the same company. Companies with multiple office locations will need separate licenses for each office location, and are not allowed to share logins. You agree that you will not: (a) copy or distribute any part of the Service in any medium to anyone outside of your company; (b) modify any content of the database to resell or redistribute in any format; (c) access the services in order to build a similar or competitive website, product, or service; (d) share a login with anyone other than the individual who signed up; (e) add additional users to your subscription who are not employed by your company, including clients of your company. You may use the service and information to pitch clients’ products to media outlets, however you may not allow access of the database/service to your clients. Each client who needs access to the database and proprietary information must purchase a separate subscription. If you would like to register for multi-user plans in order to allow multiple clients to have access to the database, please contact us for pricing and set-up. 

You agree not to sign in using a VPN (virtual private network). You agree to allow us to track IP addresses of all logins in order to prevent fraud. 

In order to access the Service, you will have to create a login account. When creating your login account, you represent and warrant to us that the information you provide is accurate and complete in all respects. All registrations must be made by you, personally. You agree to use a company email where you can be reached regarding your subscription. You agree that if your email or contact information changes, you will contact us to update information. You agree that the lack of providing your correct contact information may result in missing out on future client-only early-bird discounts and list updates and communications. Accounts registered by “bots” or other automated methods are not permitted under any circumstances. You may never use another’s login account without permission, and may not permit anyone else to use your login account. 

You agree that you will be solely responsible for all activity that occurs on your account, whether or not authorized by you. Accordingly, it is extremely important that you keep your password secure. You agree to notify us immediately in the event you become aware of, or suspect, any breach of security or unauthorized use of your account. You agree to contact us in the event that an employee of your company who has access to your account is terminated or quits, in order to have the password changed. 

You agree not to disclose to media where you got their media contact info and never mention The Gift List or Gift List Media in your pitch. Any violation of this may result in permanent termination of your account. 

You agree to appropriate use of the contacts. You agree to pitch only appropriate submissions to editors who cover specific categories that fit your product. You agree not to send blanket submissions to every contact on The Gift List. Any reported abuses by media contacts may result in termination of your subscription. Repeated abuses will result in permanent termination of your account.

You agree to allow us to send you communications about your subscription and any other special offers and news that only goes to subscribers.
