PRIVACY

RINGTV takes the issue of safeguarding the privacy and security of visitors to its Web site very seriously. RINGTV is the owner of the information collected on this site. RingTV uses Google Analytics and Cookies in order to improve our service, user experience, and analyze how the site is used. Besides from the approximate location (IP address), the information collected by Google Analytics is mostly anonymous traffic data including browser information, device information, and language preference. RINGTV will not sell, share or rent this information to others in ways different from what is disclosed in this statement. RINGTV collects both personal and non-personal information of visitors to its Web site. RINGTV collects personal identifying information from visitors only if the visitor voluntarily submits such information to us. Certain non-personal information of visitors is recorded by the standard operation of RINGTV’s Internet Servers.

INTERNATIONAL PRIVACY LAWS

If you are visiting RingTV from outside the United States, please be aware that you are sending information (including Personal Data) to the United States or back out of the United States to other countries outside of your country of residence, depending on the type of information and how it is stored by RingTV. These countries (including the United States) may not necessarily have data protection laws as comprehensive or protective as those in your country or residence; however, our collection storage and use of your Personal Data will at all times continue to be governed by this Privacy Policy.

EU – US Privacy Shield

For Personal Data we receive from the EEA, RingTV has certified its compliance to the EU-US Privacy Shield as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of personal data from the European Union countries. We have certified that we adhere to the Privacy Shield principles of Notice, Choice, Accountability for Onward Transfers, Security, Data Integrity & Purpose Limitation when processing Personal Data from the EEA in the United States. You can find out more about our commitment to the EU – U.S. Privacy Shield Framework in our EU – U.S. Privacy Shield Notice.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

RINGTV collects information from its visitors at several different points on its Web site. Personal information collected usually consists of an individual’s name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and/or credit card information. This information is required only when an individual wishes to pursue a business relationship with RINGTV or its clients such as receiving product information, or purchasing products from online stores available through this Web site. RINGTV always uses industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with its Web site. Once collected this information is stored in a secure, password-protected database that RINGTV keeps separate from its corporate Web site. This information will be provided to the extent necessary for credit card processors and/or banks, and those third parties necessary to process, package and deliver your order. RINGTV will not disclose this personal information to any unrelated third party except when a third party is helping us pursue the business relationship initiated by the individual that provided the personal information. Personal information does not include information that is collected anonymously (i.e., without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual (See “Non-Personal Information” below).

COPPA COMPLIANCE

In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, RINGTV makes no effort to secure personal information from children 13 years of age or younger. If we become aware that a child 13 years or younger age has submitted personal information, we will immediately delete that information and not disclose it to any third party, nor will we attempt to use it to further pursue a business relationship.
From time-to-time RINGTV requests information from visitors via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the visitor therefore has a choice of whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as zip code and age level). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of RINGTV’s Web site, our print publications, as well as any products we may produce in the future.

From time-to-time RINGTV sends out promotional and informational communications relying on the personal identifiable information it has collected. You will have the option of indicating your desire to receive or not receive this type of communication at the time of your providing such information to RINGTV.

DATA COLLECTION

RingTV processes Personal Data both as a Processor and as a Controller, as defined in the Directive and the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Information RingTV collects may include name, company name, email, address, telephone, credit card number and other relevant data. This information is used by RingTV to identify the User and provide them with support services, mailings, marketing, billing, and to meet subscription obligations.
