Privacy Policy

Ripe Reviews Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy describes Ripe Reviews's policies and procedures on the collection, use and disclosure of your information. Ripe Reviews receives your information through our various web sites, services, and third-parties ("Services"). When using any of our Services you consent to the collection, transfer, manipulation, storage, disclosure and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy. Irrespective of which country that you reside in or create information from, your information may be used by Ripe Reviews in the United States or any other country where Ripe Reviews operates.


Information Collection and Use

Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or reconfigure a Ripe Reviews account, you provide some personal information, such as your username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page. Some Services, such as searching through non-private ad space listings, do not require registration.

Additional Information: You may provide us with additional information to make public, such as a profile picture. Providing the additional information described in this section is entirely optional.

Ripe Reviews Item Pages and other Public Information: Our Services are primarily designed to provide a platform for reviewing items. We also provide other features such as platforms for Comments, Questions & Answers, Pros and Cons, Best Prices, and more. Most of the information you provide to us is information you are asking us to make public. If you provide information about yourself in your Profile page, it will be accessible to the public.


Log Data: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with advertisements, may also be included in Log Data.

Cookies: Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. Ripe Reviews may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by editing its options, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit.


Third Party Services: Ripe Reviews uses Google Analytics to help understand use of our Services. Through Google, Analytics collects the information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, including cookies and your IP address. Google also receives this information and their use of it is governed by their Privacy Policy.
Information Sharing and Disclosure


Your Consent: We may share or disclose your information with your consent, such as when you use a third party web client to access your Ripe Reviews account.
Service Providers: We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us. We may share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these functions and provide such services, and only pursuant to obligations mirroring the protections of this privacy policy.

Law and Harm: We may disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues; or to protect Ripe Reviews's rights or property.

Business Transfers: In the event that Ripe Reviews is involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this privacy policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

Non-Private or Non-Personal Information: We may share or disclose your non-private, aggregated or otherwise non-personal information, such as your public Tweets or the number of users who clicked on a particular link (even if only one did).

Modifying Your Personal Information

If you are a registered user of our Services, we provide you with tools to access or modify the personal information you provided to us and associated with your account. Some information, such as the email address you verified upon registration, cannot be changed.

Our Policy Towards Children

Our Services are not directed to people under 18. If you become aware that your child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 18.

Changes to this Policy

We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. The most current version of the policy will govern our use of your information and will always be at Ripe Reviews.com/privacy.html. If the revision, in our sole discretion, is material we will notify you on our homepage or via email to the email address associated with your account. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about these Terms, please contact us.

Effective: June 22, 2013
