Tethering :
Tethering is using the giffgaff sim card to access the internet on any device other than your phone.
 
if the sim card is in a dongle, into a laptop thats tethering.
if you use your phone as a wifi hotspot, its tethering.
if you use you phone as a modem via usb... thats tethering.
 
its fine to watch videos, youtube, etc... as long as it REMAINS on your phone... not on a laptop / pc / ipad, etc.
