At Rydow, our mission is to seek truth and help people understand the world. We want you to understand how we process your data. We also want you to know your rights and options.

This policy describes how we treat your data when you use our Rydow site, listed below:

  • The magazines along with the language versions are owned by us.
  • Our web pages.
  • Our apps, such as the Rydow app.
  • Our email newsletters, like newsletter and news of the week.
  • Pages or advertisements on social media networks, such as our Facebook and Instagram pages.
  • Anywhere we collect information from you.

How we process information about you depends on the services you use – and how you use them. We use different information about email subscribers than web site visitors.

Note that certain services work differently. Some have additional terms for this policy. Or others refer to a different privacy policy altogether, so this policy does not apply.

A. What information do we collect about you?

The information we collect about you depends on the context. In general, it is information about you that can personally identify you – or when combined with other information.

The following describes the information we collect and how we obtain it.

1. Information collected through the access service

Information you voluntarily provide to us

  • For registration:

When you sign up for the Rydow service (e.g. Signup), we collect your contact information and account login information. Once you’ve signed up, we’ll assign you a unique ID number. This ID number helps us recognize you once you’re signed in.

For some services, you can sign up by linking your Apple, Facebook, or Google account.

If you register for an event or conference, we may request additional information  (for example, your company name, your job title, or your dietary restrictions).

Access to Rydow is currently free, so we have not collected your information through this form.

  • For payment:

We do not collect and are not authorized to collect your payment information. All your payments are processed by us through a 3rd party intermediary such as Paypal or bank transfer. This means that your payment information will be collected and used in accordance with Paypal’s Privacy policy (you can view Paypal’s Privacy policy here).

Therefore, we absolutely cannot access your payment information in any way.

  • For user-generated content:

We offer you the ability to post content that can be read by other users (for example, contributors, comments, or email submissions). Anyone can read, collect and use any personal information that accompanies your posts. See our Terms of service for more information.

We do not have to publish any of your content. If we are required by law to take down, delete or correct your personal information, we will comply to the extent required.

The user-generated content feature is a work in progress, so user-generated content is currently unavailable.

  • For contests, sweepstakes and special offers:

When you sign up for these, you provide us with your name, email address, and any other necessary information.

  • For survey, research, table and reader experience programs:

We collect information through questionnaires, surveys and feedback programs. We also conduct similar research on advertisers. We ask that you agree to the use of this information when you participate in these programs and events.

  • During contact with our support person:

We collect information from you when you call or contact customer support through one of our phone numbers.

  • Personal contact data:

We never scan your device for your contacts or upload that data.

With your consent, we comply with your request to collect data about your friends, family or acquaintances (e.g. referral campaign). This function is only available to residents of certain regions.

Information is collected automatically

  • With GPS technology:

Some of our apps may provide content based on your GPS location, if you enable this feature  (e.g. Rydow app). Your GPS location is your exact location.

You choose whether to enable GPS features when you first install the app. You can edit that setting on your device at any time. If you enable these features, your GPS location can be found by satellite, cell phone tower, or Wi-Fi and used by apps. If you save a location-based search in your history, that data goes to our service provider’s servers – see below for a definition of a service provider.

If you do not enable GPS location-based services, or if a particular application does not have location-based features  (e.g. Rydow app) , we will not collect your exact GPS location. Friend. We collect your IP address, which can establish your approximate location. Ads on our websites and apps may be targeted based on this approximate location, but never based on your GPS location.

Information collected from other sources

This includes aggregated data about our followers (e.g. age, gender and location) , interaction data (e.g. likes, comments, shares, reposts) and clicks), cognitive data (e.g. impressions and reach), and public user profiles.

  • Workplace and school:

When your employer or school purchases an organization-wide subscription, they sometimes provide us with your organization’s name and email address to grant you access to as a user.

Note about future updates:

We’re always improving our products and services, and we’re constantly creating new features. These updates sometimes require us to collect new information or use what we already have in another way. If there is a significant or material change in the way we treat your personal information, we will notify you as detailed below.

B. What we do with the information we collect about you?

1. We provide service

We use your information to help you use and navigate the Rydow service, such as:

  • Provide recruitment and employment services for you.
  • Arrange access to your account.
  • Provide customer service.
  • Respond to your inquiries, requests, suggestions or complaints.
  • Complete your payments and transactions.
  • Send service-related messages (for example, a change in our terms and conditions).
  • Save your search list.
  • Show your search statistics.
  • Allows you to participate in paid services, polls, promotions, surveys, seminars, research and comments.

2. We personalize your experience

We track your reading preferences and habits (e.g. articles you read) to personalize your reading experience using technology like algorithm recommendations and machine learning. Here’s how we highlight articles you might be interested in and highlight articles you’ve already read. We also show you prices, promotions, products or services that we believe you will find interesting, based on demographic and usage data.

3. We allow you to share user-generated content

Any information you disclose in your content becomes public – along with your chosen display name and uploaded photos.

4. We develop products, services, and perform analysis

We analyze data on user registration, purchase and usage behavior. This helps us make business and marketing decisions.

For example, our analytics allows us to predict preferences and price points for our products and services. It helps us determine if our marketing is successful. It also shows us characteristics about our audience, which we sometimes share in aggregate with advertisers.

Google Analytics is one of the analytics providers we use. You can learn how Google Analytics uses data and how to opt out of Google Analytics.

5. We perform administrative duties

  • For audits: We verify that our internal processes work as intended and comply with legal, regulatory and contractual requirements.
  • For fraud and security monitoring: We detect and prevent cyberattacks or unauthorized robot activities.
  • For customer satisfaction: We measure user satisfaction with Rydow and our customer care team.

The above activities may involve companies, agents or external contractors (service providers) with whom we share your personal information for these purposes (discussed further below below).

6. We offer sweepstakes, contests and other promotions

You can participate in our sweepstakes, contests and other promotions. Some may have additional rules about how we use and disclose your personal information.

7. We allow personalized advertising and audience creation for third-party advertisers

We collect data and work with third parties to show you personalized advertisements on behalf of advertisers. This data comes from ad tracking technologies set up by us or a third party (e.g. cookies), information you provide (e.g. your email address), your use of Rydow (e.g. your reading history), information from advertisers or advertising providers (e.g. demographic data), and anything inferred from any information of these. We only use or share this information in a way that does not reveal your identity. For example, we use Google to serve ads on Rydow. Google uses cookies or unique device identifiers, combined with their own data, to show you advertisements based on your visit to and other websites. You may choose not to use Google’s cookies by visiting the relevant Google privacy policy.

We also define groups of users to serve personalized ads on behalf of our advertisers. To do this, we combine the information we collect through surveys or registrations with information we collect automatically using tracking technology while you browse the websites and our application. This combined information is used to build the model. These data models are then used to measure user attributes, like their demographic information or preferences. Working with service providers, we use these measurements to group users by common attributes. Each group is associated with a random ID, which is then passed to our ad servers for use in targeting advertising campaigns on our websites and apps.

Another example is our affiliate providers, which we use in our product guides and recommendations. The Rydow includes links that will take you to the URLs of providers and other services that are not operated or controlled by us. These providers use cookies and other technologies to collect information about your navigation from the Rydow to the merchant you are visiting. If you purchase a product after clicking on a link to the affiliate supplier’s URL, we may earn a commission.

Additional notes:

  • To learn more about targeted advertising and how to opt out with your specific browser and device, go to DAA Webchoices browser test and Opt-out of NAI Interest-Based Advertising. You can AppChoices app download to opt out application for mobile device. You can also follow the instructions in What are your rights? section below.
  • We try to limit how our third-party ad technology providers use the information they collect from you. Many of these suppliers require us to enter into contracts that allow them to optimize their own services and products or help them create their own products. Essentially, the vendors This provider combines any information they collect about you through the Rydow with information they receive from their other customers. This helps them target ads to you on behalf of their other customers, not just us.
  • These third parties sometimes use other services to serve ads, check their privacy policies for more details.

8. We advertise for you

We market our properties to you. We sometimes use marketing providers to do this.

We serve advertising through websites, places, platforms and services operated and owned by third parties. Typically, these ads are targeted at people who have visited or signed up for Rydow but haven’t signed up for or purchased anything. Ads are also targeted to people with similar characteristics or behaviors to our subscribers or customers.

We target our ads to these users by uploading encrypted customer lists to third parties or by incorporating third-party tracking technology into our Rydow. The third party then matches the individuals that appear in both our data and theirs. Because of how this matchmaking works, it’s not possible for third parties to read our encrypted list of customers if they haven’t already.

To opt-out of receiving these relevant advertisements, contact applicable third parties. For example, when we use “Custom audiences” to serve you our ads through Facebook, you can hover over the box in the right corner of that Facebook ad and opt out. We are not responsible for third parties’ failure to comply with opt-out requirements.

We periodically send you targeted promotional newsletters. For information about opting out of these emails, see What are your rights?

9. We aggregate (or identify) personal information into larger findings

We sometimes aggregate or de-identify information so that it can no longer identify you under applicable law. This helps us better understand and represent our users, for example, when we measure ad performance, create segments based on ad interest, or aggregate survey results. We may use and disclose this aggregated or unidentified information for any purpose, unless otherwise provided by applicable law.
