Please note that “personal information” is information about an identifiable individual, and is not (i) information that is anonymous or aggregated, or (ii) incapable of being combined with other bits of information to identify a specific person. The words “user” and “you” are used interchangeably and any variation of such words have the meaning as applicable in the context.
We may modify this Policy at any time and if there are changes in how a user’s personal information is impacted, we will update the user. Regardless, we request users to check to see whether this Policy has been modified. Users are deemed to have accepted any modifications of this Policy if they continue to provide personal information to the Company after publication of such modifications.
What We Collect and Why?
We collect specific personal information for certain purposes as set out below. This collection may occur when a user intentionally provide us the information or when we receive the information through electronic collection mechanisms.
As noted above in “What We Collect and Why?”, we may share your personal information with third parties where we have received your consent to do so or under limited circumstances specifically described at such time as personal information is collected from you.
We may also use aggregate non-identifiable information it collects to inform its current and prospective merchants and offers about the number of users of the Site, the demographic characteristics of these users and the number of times users have viewed and "clicked" on their profile(s). Ribitt may also disclose to merchants the overall demographics available regarding users who "clicked" on their profiles. Aggregate non-identifiable information may be used to describe Ribitt services and products to third parties such as prospective business partners and financial institutions. In any of these circumstances, only non-identifiable information in an aggregate form and not personal information is disclosed.
Although Ribitt endeavours to keep your information as private as possible, there are certain situations in which we may disclose your personal information to the extent required and no further: (a) to comply with the law or a legal process; (b) to fix a breach in the App’s security; (c) if it is necessary in order to protect your or others’ safety; or (d) if you grant us permission to disclose such information.
