COLLECTION AND USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
When you use our Site, we may collect personal information about you, such as your name and email address. For example, we collect your email address if you decide to sign up for the email “updates” function on our Site or if you email us. We use this information to respond to your inquiries or requests. We may also use this information to keep you informed about our latest developments or products.
COOKIES AND OTHER WEB TECHNOLOGIES
Our general policy is to not share the information described above with third parties without your prior consent. We may, however, share the information in some limited circumstances including:
• With law enforcement agencies, governmental officials or agencies or other third parties in response to a subpoena, court order or legal procedure;
• If we believe in good faith that the sharing is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss to us; prevent report suspected illegal activity; protect anyone’s rights, property, or safety;
• With other business entities, should we plan to merge with or be acquired by that business entity or in connection with a partial or total sale of assets, bankruptcy, or another corporate change; and
• When you otherwise consent.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
We use reasonable industry-accepted technology and controls to protect your data from disclosure to unauthorized third parties. Although these measures are typically effective, use of the internet and related computer systems is inherently vulnerable to unauthorized access or “hacking.” No guarantee can be given that all information you provide to us will not be accessed by unauthorized persons. Thus, please note that no method of transmission over the internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure.
Our Site is not directed to children under 13 and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, please stop using our Site. It is our policy not to knowingly solicit or permit children under 13 to provide their personal information for any purpose.
CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
California law permits California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, information about the personally identifiable information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of personal information (e.g., name, cell phone number, email address, and certain demographic data) that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared information in the preceding calendar year. At this time, Ritter does not share personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes so this requirement does not apply to us.
In addition, under California law, website operators are required to disclose how they respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other similar mechanisms that provide consumers with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information of a consumer over time and across third party websites and apps, to the extent the operator engages in that collection. At this time, we do not track our customers’ personally identifiable information over time and across third-party websites and apps. This law also requires website and app operators to disclose whether third parties may collect personally identifiable information about their users’ online activities over time and across different websites and apps when the users use the operator’s website or app. We do not knowingly permit third parties to collect personally identifiable information about an individual consumer’s online activities over time and across different web sites and apps when a consumer uses our Site.
