What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of information or text that are issued to your computer when you visit a website and are used to store or track information about your use of the site.
Ripspot uses both session-based and persistent-based cookies. Session-based cookies exist only during your web session and expire when you close your internet browser. Persistent-based cookies are files that stay in one of your browser’s subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie’s file.
Many cookies on our websites perform essential functions and enable users to move around our websites and use their features; for example, when users log in to their account, they remember the information in the account. We refer to these cookies in this policy as “strictly necessary. “
Other cookies are not essential but they help us understand how our websites are used by visitors, so that we can improve what we do online. We use analytics tools for this. They look at things like how long our websites take to load, how they are used, and what information visitors to our sites look at most. This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for example, by ensuring that users find what they are looking for easily. They also help identify any parts of our websites that aren’t working as well as they should – so we can fix things and make our websites better for users. We refer to these cookies in this policy as “performance. “
Additional cookies allow our websites to recognize you when you return to our websites. This enables us to remember choices that you make (such as user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. We refer to these cookies in this policy as “functionality.” Some cookies are for marketing purposes and we refer to these cookies in this policy as “marketing.”

Do Not Track
While Ripspot attempts to honor do not track (“DNT”) instructions we receive from your browser, we cannot guarantee that Ripspot will always respond to such signals, in part because of the lack of common industry standard for DNT technology. We continue to monitor developments in DNT technology and stay apprised of DNT industry standards as they evolve.
Web beacons (also known as internet tags, pixel tags, and clear GIFs) are clear electronic images that can recognize certain types of information on your computer, such as the type of browser used to view a website page, when you viewed a particular site linked to the Web beacon, and a description of a site tied to the Web beacon. Certain pages on our Website may contain such Web beacons, which Ripspot uses to operate and improve the Website.
An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our Website, we may view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and the geographic regions of our visitors.
You can stop cookies being downloaded to your computer by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Most browsers will tell you how to stop accepting new cookies, how to be notified when you receive a new cookie, and how to disable existing cookies. You can find out how to do this for your particular browser by clicking “help” on your browser’s menu or by visiting www.allaboutcookies.org. Please note that without cookies you may not be able to take full advantage of our Website features.
Google Analytics is used to collect and process data on our websites. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. The information obtained from Google Analytics is only used to improve this site. Google Analytics collects only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit this site, rather than any other identifying information. Google Analytics plants a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site but this cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google.
