Ringle Inc., including our Ringle affiliate companies (“we”, “us”, “our”, or “RINGLE”) provides this Privacy Policy to inform you of our policies and procedures regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of our services. This Privacy Policy applies to all information that has been provided to us through our websites (collectively, our “Sites”) or in the process of providing services (our “Services”) to our customers and visitors.

This Privacy Policy may be updated from time to time. The most updated version of the Privacy Policy is available HERE.

We will notify you of any material changes to this Privacy Policy by posting the new Privacy Policy wherever it may appear on our Sites, and give you notice that the Privacy Policy has been updated.

You should consult this policy regularly for any changes, and it is your responsibility to become aware of and understand them.

For the purposes of this policy, the terms "using" and "processing" information include using cookies on a computer, subjecting the information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring information within our organization or among our affiliates within the United States or internationally.


NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS

Our use of your information is subject to our “Privacy Notice for California Residents”, which is available HERE. If you are a California resident, please refer to that document for information on how we collect and use your personal information, and your rights under California law.

INFORMATION, COLLECTION, AND ITS USE

We collect information to provide and improve our Sites, our features, to administer accounts, and to provide our Services. This information can be personally identifiable, non-identifying, and include information relating to your device and activity, or of your own customers and their respective personal information. Please see the “What Kinds of Information We Collect” for more details on what we collect.

We collect this information when you use the Services. For example, we collect information before you start using our Services, including for account registration, to create, share, or request feedback, or message and communicate with us.

Depending on your privacy settings, we collect information about your computer and other devices you use to take part in the Services. We may associate device data to provide consistent o0Services, and to provide a secure environment for users. This can include collecting your device identifiers, location data, and IP address to verify registered users.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to collection or practices of third-parties that we do not own or control, including third-party providers used in connection with the Services. While we attempt to only work with third-parties that share our policies, we cannot take responsibility for the policies or practices of third-parties. If we work with any third-parties with data and information policies that are different than our own, we will notify you before those policies affect you. Regardless, we strongly encourage you to review third-party privacy policies before using their services or sharing your personal information.

WHAT KINDS OF INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT?

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION

In the course of using the Services, we may ask you to provide us with, or grant us access to, or permission to obtain, certain personally identifiable information that can be used to contact or identify you. Personally identifiable information includes, but is not limited to, legal names, email addresses, mobile phone numbers, sex/gender, dates of birth, and billing address information (your "Personal Information").

We collect Personal Information in connection with your registration to form an account, and to participate in certain Services.

We may also use your Personal Information to contact you with newsletters, updates, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. If at any time you decide you no longer wish to receive such communications from us, please unsubscribe from further messages from any “Unsubscribe” function we provide, update your Account's "Notifications" settings, or write to us at RINGLE customer service via email at contact@ringleplus.com.

We may also collect Personal Information about you, such as your name, email address and mobile number when you provide feedback on the Services.

If we collect Personal Information to provide a specific Service, we will only use that information to provide the Service, and will not share that information with any third-party, including our third-party providers, except as necessary to provide the Service or as you have agreed to in writing with us.

We use Personal Information (in some cases, in conjunction with Non-Identifying Information defined below) to provide the Services, send information about the Sites or Services, and to respond to and administer inquiries and requests.


NON-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION

We may also collect other information as part of registration for, and use of, certain Services, such as your ZIP or postal code, geographical data, birth month or day (but not both), and individual preferences ("Non-Identifying Information").

Certain Non-Identifying Information would be considered a part of Personal Information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, by combining a ZIP or postal code with a street address) in a way that enables a person to be identified. Those same pieces of information are considered Non-Identifying Information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-identifying information, such as your viewing preferences.

We may use Non-Identifying Information for any lawful purpose, including by aggregating Non- Identifying Information from multiple users to provide better or more personalized user experiences, to improve the quality and value of the Services, and to analyze and understand how and where our Services are used.


CALENDAR INFORMATION

You may connect your Google calendar with RINGLE. Our calendar integration only checks the duration and free/busy status of the events in your calendar so that the scheduling process can be even easier and more efficient. We never store who you are meeting with, their email address, the meeting title, or any other details about the appointments in your connected calendar.


LOG DATA

When you visit the Site, regardless of whether you are a registered user or a non-registered visitor, our servers may automatically record information that your browser sends about your visit ("Log Data"). Log Data may include information such as your computer's or device’s Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, or the webpage you were visiting before you came to a Site, pages of our Sites that you visit, the time spent on those pages, information you search for on our Sites, access times and dates, and other statistics. We use this information to improve our Site and Services and to deliver a better and more personalized service. For example, some of this information is collected so that when you visit our Sites, we will recognize you and serve information appropriate to your interests. We also use this information to verify that visitors meet the criteria required to process their requests. Log Data may be treated as Personal Information, but we may aggregate, analyze and evaluate such information for the same purposes as for Non-Identifying Information.


COOKIES

Like many website operators, we may use "cookies" to collect information. A cookie is a small data file that we transfer to your device's hard disk for record-keeping purposes. We will use cookies for two purposes. First, we may utilize persistent cookies to save your registration ID and login password for future logins to the Sites. Second, we may utilize session ID cookies to enable certain features of the Services, to better understand how you interact with our Sites, or Services and to monitor aggregate usage by users and web traffic routing. Unlike persistent cookies, session cookies are deleted from your computer or device when you log off from your Account and then close your browser. You can instruct your browser, by changing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. If you do not accept cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Site or certain functionalities of our Services.


NOTICE ABOUT IDENTITY THEFT & PHISHING

Identity theft and the practice known as "phishing" are of great concern to us. Safeguarding information to help protect you from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request or provide your Personal Information, including credit card information, login passwords, or identification numbers, such as your driver’s license number or Social Security number, in any email or other communication unless your Personal Information is needed to confirm your identity and respond to request you have made.
