4. Web Site Navigational Information
Ryng uses commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons, to collect information as you navigate the Company's Web sites ("Web Site Navigational Information"). This section describes the types of Web Site Navigational Information the Company may collect and how the Company may use this information.
There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser software or turn off your computer. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you close your browser or turn off your computer.
If you have chosen to identify yourself to Ryng, the Company uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow the Company to uniquely identify you. Each time you log into the Service, a session cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to your account is placed on your browser. These session cookies allow the Company to uniquely identify you when you are logged into the Service and to process your online transactions and requests. Session cookies are required to use the Service and the Company does not recognize do-not-track requests with respect to Session cookies.
Ryng uses persistent cookies that only the Company can read and use to identify browsers that have previously visited the Company's Web sites. When you purchase the Service or provide the Company with personal information, however, a unique identifier is assigned you. This unique identifier is associated with a persistent cookie that the Company places on your Web browser and this cookie does not respond to do-not-track requests. The Company is especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, the Company does not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies.
Ryng may use information from session and persistent cookies in combination with data about Ryng Customers to provide you with information about the Company and the Service.
Third Party Cookies
From time-to-time, Ryng engages third parties to track and analyze non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit the Company's Web sites. Ryng may also use other third-party cookies to track the performance of Company advertisements. The information provided to third parties does not include personal information, but this information may be re-associated with personal information after the Company receives it. This Privacy Statement does not cover the use of third party cookies, as Ryng does not control the cookies potentially used by third parties.
Ryng uses Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Customers and Visitors' usage of the Company's Web sites and interaction with emails from the Company. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as cookies, when you viewed a particular Web site tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a Web site tied to the Web beacon. For example, Ryng may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify the Company when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of the Company's Web sites. Ryng uses Web beacons to operate and improve the Company's Web sites and email communications. Ryng may use information from Web beacons in combination with Data About Ryng Customers to provide you with information about the Company and the Service.
When you visit Ryng's Web sites, the Company collects your Internet Protocol ("IP") addresses to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information. For example, Ryng uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Customers and Visitors navigate the Company's Web sites.
Ryng also collects IP addresses from Customers whey they log into the Service as part of the Company's "Identity Confirmation" and "IP Range Restrictions" security features.
5. Public Forums, Refer a Friend, and Customer Testimonials
Ryng may provide bulletin boards, blogs, or chat rooms on the Site. Any personally identifiable information you choose to submit in such a forum may be read, collected, or used by others who visit these forums, and may be used to send you unsolicited messages. Ryng is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.
Customers and Visitors may elect to use the Company's referral service to inform friends about the Company's Web sites. When using the referral service, the Company requests the friend's name and email address. Ryng will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting him or her to visit the Company's Web sites. Ryng does not store this information.
Ryng posts a list of Customers and testimonials on the Company's Web sites that contain information such as Customer names and titles. Ryng obtains the consent of each Customer prior to posting any information on such a list or posting testimonials.

Ryng does not share, sell, rent, or trade personally identifiable information with third parties for their promotional purposes.
Ryng uses a third-party intermediary to manage credit card processing. This intermediary is not permitted to store, retain, or use Billing Information except for the sole purpose of credit card processing on the Company's behalf.
Ryng reserves the right to disclose personally identifiable information of the Company's Customers or Visitors if required by law or if the Company reasonably believes that disclosure is necessary to protect the Company's rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.
