1 Data collected and use thereof
1.2. RingRing undertakes to keep the Client’s information, including the information of its End Users and own clients, confidential, in accordance with national and international agreements, including the Belgian law of December 8, 1992 on Privacy Protection in relation to the Processing of Personal Data as modified by the law of December 11, 1998 implementing Directive 95/46/EC.
1.3. The information sent by the Client with involvement of End User data will be recorded in RingRing’s copyright protected database. The Client has the right of access and the right to modify this data upon written request.
1.4. The Client shall at all time remain responsible to abide by the rules and obligations of the Code of Conduct mentioned in the General Terms and Conditions with regard to personal data from its own clients and/or End Users. RingRing shall in no way be liable or responsible for the treatment of the personal data of the End Users by the Client. Nor can RingRing ever be held to pay damages of any kind relating to the treatment of the personal data of End Users.
1.5. The gathered information will be used by RingRing for client administration, market research and promotional campaigns for RingRing’s Services. If the Client does not wish to receive such information the Client can inform RingRing via email firstname.lastname@example.org, by fax on +32 (0) 2 502 85 00 or via mail at the listed address.
1.6. RingRing will not share, disclose or sell, with or to a third party, any information regarding phone numbers, identification information or any other information provided, of the Client’s or of the
Client’s members, customers, prospects, employees, relations and friends unless if the Client has given its explicit written consent thereto.
2. Web Site navigational information and Security
2.1. RingRing’s Website may contain links to other websites. RingRing is not responsible for the information practices or the content of such other websites. RingRing encourages the Client to review the privacy policies of such other websites to understand their information practices.
There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based. Session cookies exist only during one session. They disappear from the user’s computer when he or she closes his or her browser software or turns off his or her computer. Persistent cookies remain on one’s computer after closing one’s browser or turning off one’s computer.
If the Client has chosen to identify itself to RingRing, the latter uses session cookies containing encrypted information to allow itself to uniquely identify that Client. Each time the Client logs into the Service, a session cookie containing an encrypted, unique identifier that is tied to the Client’s account is placed on the Client’s browser. These session cookies allow RingRing to uniquely identify the Client when the latter is logged into the Service and to process the Client’s online transactions and requests. Session cookies are required to use the Service.
RingRing uses persistent cookies that only RingRing can read and use to identify browsers that have previously visited the Website. When the Client purchases the Service or provides RingRing with personal information, a unique identifier is assigned to that Client. This unique identifier is associated with a persistent cookie that RingRing places on the Client’s web browser. RingRing is especially careful about the security and confidentiality of the information stored in persistent cookies. For example, RingRing does not store account numbers or passwords in persistent cookies. If the Client disables his or her web browser’s ability to accept cookies, the Client will be able to navigate the Website, but he or she will not be able to successfully use the Service.
RingRing may use information from session and persistent cookies in combination with data about RingRing’s Clients in order to provide the Clients with information about RingRing and its Services.
2.3. RingRing uses Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about Clients’ usage of the Website and interaction with emails from RingRing. Web beacons are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on one’s computer, such as cookies, when one has viewed a particular website tied to the Web beacon, and a description of a website tied to the Web beacon. For example, RingRing may place Web beacons in marketing emails that notify RingRing when the Client clicks on a link in the email that directs the Client to RingRing’s website. RingRing uses Web beacons to operate and improve the Website and email communications. RingRing may use information from Web beacons in combination with data about RingRing’s Clients in order to provide the Clients with information about RingRing and its Services.
2.4. When the Client visits RingRing’s Website, it collects the Client’s Internet Protocol (« IP ») addresses to track and aggregate non-personally identifiable information. For example, RingRing uses IP addresses to monitor the regions from which Clients navigate the Website.
RingRing also collects IP addresses from Clients when they log into the Service as part of the RingRing’s « Identity Confirmation » and « IP Range Restrictions » security features.
2.5. From time-to-time, RingRing engages third parties to track and analyze non-personally identifiable usage and volume statistical information from individuals who visit the Website. RingRing may also use other third-party cookies to track the performance of its advertisements. The information provided to third parties does not include personal information, but this information may be re-associated with personal information after RingRing receives it. This Privacy Statement does not cover the use of third party cookies.
2.6. RingRing uses robust security measures to protect Client data from unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and help ensure the appropriate use of Client data. When the Service is accessed using Internet Explorer version 6.0 or later, Firefox version 2.0 or later, or Safari version 3.0 or later, Secure Socket Layer (« SSL ») technology protects Client data using both server authentication and data encryption. These technologies help ensure that Client data is safe, secure, and only available to the Client to whom the information belongs and those to whom the Client has granted access.
RingRing also implements an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications, and RingRing hosts its Website in a secure server environment that uses firewalls and other advanced technology to prevent interference or access from outside intruders.
RingRing also offers enhanced security features within the Service that permit Clients to configure security settings to the level they deem necessary.
