Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy


Effective Date: 21 March 2017

This is the Privacy Policy of Riglobe Pte Ltd ("Riglobe"). We give our clients tools to manage their own Wi-Fi service and to understand and communicate with their customers. This privacy policy covers Riglobe's handling of two categories of information:


1. Information we receive from or on behalf of our clients, such as the email addresses their customers supply when signing up for Wi-Fi or visiting our clients' websites, as well as certain information collected in connection with the Wi-Fi routers; and


2. Information collected from visitors to riglobe's own website, www.riglobe.com


Each of those two categories has its own section below. Following those sections is a third section containing general information about our privacy practices, as well as yours opt-out options and details about exercising your rights. This privacy policy does not address our clients' own privacy practices.


1. PRIVACY INFORMATION RECEIVE FROM OR ON BEHALF OF OUR CLIENTS

Information Collected


In an expanding number of countries, we provide our clients (restaurants, stores, retails, school and other businesses) with wireless access point or routers that let them share their Internet connection with people around their location. Like all Wi-Fi access point or routers, ours receive the unique MAC address of nearby wireless devices, such as smartphones. We keep a record of these MAC addresses and the Wi-Fi access point or routers they are near, absent a legal constraint or an applicable opt-out. To sign up to use the Internet connection though a client's Wi-Fi, a person must (1) submit basic contact information, such as an email address, and (2) agree to terms and privacy practices. (3) Using social media account to log in for access. The user may choose to enter additional information, such as their month and day of birth.


After a user signs, up, we associate their email address and other personal information with their device's MAC address and with any location history we may previously have gathered (or later gather) for that device's MAC address. Later, when the user's device returns to this client location or enters the Wi-Fi range of another Riglobe access point or router (of any Riglobe client), we automatically recognize the device and record the visit in our record for that device, unless the user has opted out. We also may record information about whether and when the individual used the Internet, but Riglobe does not review or record the actual Wi-Fi traffic (such as the content of emails sent through the Wi-Fi or the URLs of web pages visited).


In some cases, we may operate a portion of our client's website, such as when we manage an email list sign-up or survey form for them (in addition to or instead of the Wi-Fi-based signup form). On our clients' websites, and in the signup and login pages for our Wi-Fi, we and our third-party service providers, including Google Analytics, may use cookies, web beacons, and other automated technologies to collect information about the computers or other devices used to access the Wi-Fi. As described further below, we may collect and analyze information such as browser type, Internet Service Provider(ISP), operating system, access time, IP address, device type, unique device identifiers, and the web pages from which visitors arrive at the website. Cookies and Other Technologies: We and our third-party service providers may use cookies, clear GIFs, pixel tags, and other technologies that help us better understand user behavior, personalize preferences, perform research and analytics, and improve the products and services we provide. We or our third-party service providers also may use certain of these technologies in emails to end users, to help us track email response rates, identify when our emails are viewed, and track whether our emails are forwarded. You can choose to accept or decline certain cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but your browser may allow you to modify your browser settings to decline certain cookies if you prefer. If you disable cookies, you may be prevented from accessing or taking full advantage of the Wi-Fi or our clients' websites.


Online Analytics Platform:


We may use third-party web analytics services, such as those of Google Analytics. These service providers use cookies and other technologies described in this Privacy Policy to help us analyze how users use our website and Wi-Fi. The information collected by the technology will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To prevent Google Analytics from using information for analytics, a user may install the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on by clicking here.


Targeted Advertising:


Third parties may also use cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer other device to collect information about your access to or use of our client's website or Wi-Fi to (i) inform, optimize, and serve marketing content based on your access to or use of a website or Wi-Fi and (ii) report how our marketing content impressions, other uses of marketing services, and interactions with these marketing impressions and marketing services are related to visits to our establishment(s), access to, or use of websites or Wi-Fi. We may also allow other third parties (e.g., ad networks and ad servers such as Google Analytics and others) to serve targeted marketing to you through our clients' websites or Wi-Fi, and to access their own cookies or other tracking technologies on your computer, mobile phone, or other device you use to access the Wi-Fi. We neither have access to, nor does this Policy govern, the use of cookies or other tracking technologies that may be placed on your computer, mobile phone, or other device by non-affiliated, third-party ad technology, ad servers, ad networks or any other non-affiliated third parties. Those parties that use these technologies may offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising as described below. Cookies may be associated with de-identified data linked to or derived from data you voluntarily have submitted to us (e.g., your email address) that we may share with a service provider in hashed, non-human readable form.


Riglobe Enterprise clients may provide us with personal information (usually about their current and potential customers), such as customer contact or point-of-sale information. We also collect information from third-party sources (such as social networking platforms). We may enhance the data we receive from or on behalf of a particular client with data that we receive from other data sources or that we have inferred or modeled ourselves.


Uses of Information


We use the information described above (sometimes in combination with other information we obtain) for the following purposes: To help clients administer their Wi-Fi networks and contact lists.

To facilitate surveys and other business processes. To create aggregate or de-identified information, or to correlate likely identities over time and across platforms.
