WHAT DOES THIS PRIVACY POLICY COVER?

This Privacy Policy covers Ruling Planets’ treatment of personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) that Ruling Planets gathers when you access the Website and when you use Ruling Planets’ online services.  This policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Ruling Planets does not own or control, or to individuals that Ruling Planets does not employ or manage, including those who advertise on the Website and those that are linked to the Website.

WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES RULING PLANETS COLLECT AND HOW IS IT USED?

The information we gather from you through the Website enables us to provide you with services, maintain and improve the Website and to process your and other users’ requests.  Information gathered may include the following:

  1. Personal Information You Provide to Us: We receive and store any information you enter on the Website or provide to us in any other way.  The types of Personal Information collected may include your name, address, birth date, preferences, content, credit card information and website usages.  You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of certain features offered on the Website.  The Personal Information you provide is used for responding to your requests for certain information, products and services, customizing the advertising and content you see, processing payments and communicating with you about payments, services and features.
  2. Personal Information that You Disclose or Post, or Allow Others to Disclose or Post:  Any Personal Information, including photographs, videos or other content, that you voluntarily disclose on or through the Website is public information that will be collected and used by Ruling Planets and may be collected and used by others.
  3. Personal Information Collected Automatically: We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with the Website.  We automatically receive and record information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, and the page you requested.
    Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to the Website and its components.  We only use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally.  This type of aggregate data enables us to determine how often customers use parts of the Website.  As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to third parties about how customers use our site.  We share this type of statistical data so that third parties, including third party search engines and advertisers, also understand how often people use certain services and the Website, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience.
    If you are logged in, then we may associate your information with your Website account.  We may also place tags, or web beacons, in HTML-based emails or other communications with you to confirm delivery or to track communications.
    Many companies offer programs that help you to visit websites anonymously.  While you may not be able to use the Website, or to all features of the Website if you use such programs, we want you to be aware that these programs are available.
  4. Cookies:  Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser and tell us how and what pages in the Website are visited and by how many people.  Cookies also allow the Website to recognize you when you make multiple visits.
    Most browsers have an option for turning off cookies, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways.  We strongly recommend that you leave the cookies activated, however, because cookies enable you to take advantage of some of the Website’s most attractive features.
  5. Information From Other Sources:  Ruling Planets might receive and store information about you that is sent to us from other sources.  This may include updated delivery and address information from vendors with regard to your email address.
  6. Email Communications:  You may receive email from Ruling Planets from time to time, for instance to request information regarding your account or payment, to notify you of new features, changes to the Website, specials or promotions or to provide you with information that you request, and you hereby consent to receipt of any such email.  If you do not want to receive email or other mail from us, please contact us at www.rulingplanets.com/contact-us

WILL RULING PLANETS SHARE ANY OF THE PERSONAL INFORMATION IT RECEIVES?

We share your personal information only as described below.  You hereby consent to our sharing of personal information for the purposes listed below.

Businesses and People We Do Not Control:  We may affiliate with a variety of businesses, including advertisers.  In certain situations, these businesses assist Ruling Planets in providing you with products or services through the Website and we may share your information with them for these purposes.

We also employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and we may need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you.  Examples include but are not limited to the following: maintaining servers, sending email, removing repetitive information from user lists, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, reviewing content and providing customer service.   

Other Users:  Note that any information that you make public on or through the Website will be accessible by other users and may be used by them.

Business Transfers:  In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets.  In these types of transactions, user information, including your Personal Information, is typically one of the business assets that is transferred.  Moreover, if Ruling Planets, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Ruling Planets goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information, including your Personal Information, would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.  You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquiror of Ruling Planets may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this policy.

Protection of Ruling Planets and Others:  We may disclose Personal Information when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, to enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements, or to protect the rights, property or safety of Ruling Planets, our employees, our users or others.  This may include exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

With Your Consent:  We may share Personal Information when you provide us with your consent to do so.  For instance, when you request goods, information or services from our affiliates or a third party through us, or when you post information to the Website, you provide your consent for us to share that information with others.  Please note that whenever you post public information on or through the Website you are giving us your consent to share that information with third parties.

IS PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT ME SECURE?

Your account is protected by a password for your privacy and security.  It is your responsibility to keep your account and Personal Information safe and secure by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.

We use industry-standard Secure Socket Layer (“SSL”) software to protect the security of your personal information during transmission.  This software encrypts all of the information you input. 

You should note, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet.  Third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications.  You should not expect that your Personal Information will remain private.

Ruling Planets allows you to access information that you provide for your account for the purpose of viewing, and in certain situations, changing and updating that information. 

WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE?

You must provide certain information about yourself to use certain features of the Website.

You can add or update certain information on pages, such as those listed in the “What Personal Information Can I Access” section above.  When you update information, however, we often maintain a copy of the unrevised information in our records.

You may terminate your account by contacting us at www.rulingplanets.com/contact-us.  Please note that some information may remain in our records after deletion of your account.  Any information that you have made public will continue to be displayed unless you remove it.
