Privacy Policy

RankPapa and its affiliates (collectively "RankPapa", "rankpapa.com", "we" and "us") take your privacy very seriously. We offer products and services that help internet marketers grow their businesses.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of Personal Data that we collect through our products and services ("Services") and our website at rankpapa.com, as well as accounts on various social media outlets (collectively, our "Sites"). This policy also describes how we use Personal Data, with whom we share it, your rights and choices, and how you can contact us about these privacy practices.

1. Overview

Rankpapa.com obtains Personal Data to provide our Products and Services and to better serve you content. If you visit or use our Site, we may collect Personal Data from you in various ways. For example, we collect Personal Data that you submit to us via online forms and when you reach out to us by email.

2. Personal Data Collected

What Kind of Personal Data Do we collect?

Personal Data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. The Personal Data that you provide directly to us through our Site will depend on the context in which you are submitting the data. For example:

  • When you register for a rankpapa.com account, we collect your name, email address, and account login credentials
  • When you fill out our online form to contact us, we collect your name, email, and any other information you provide

When you respond to our emails or surveys we collect your email address, name and any other information you choose to include in the body of your email or responses. If you contact us via phone, we will collect the phone number you use.

You also may submit information to us through other methods, including:

  • by responding to marketing or other communications,
  • by reaching out through social media or online forums,
  • by your participation in an offer, program or promotion, or
  • in connection with any current or potential business relationship with us.

b. Information that we collect automatically on our Sites.

Our Site uses cookies and other web technologies to function effectively. Some of these technologies record information about your use of the Site, including:

  • Browser and device data, such as IP address, device type, operating system and Internet browser type, screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, and language;
  • Usage data, such as time spent on the Sites, pages visited, links clicked, language preferences, and the pages that led or referred you to our Sites.

For example, we use Google Analytics on our Site to help us analyze Your use of our Sites and to diagnose technical issues that may arise.

3. How We Use Personal Data

a. Our products and services.

We rely on some Personal Data in order to provide our products and services to our Users.

b. Marketing and events-related communications.

We may send you email marketing communications about rankpapa.com products and services, invite you to participate in our events or surveys, or otherwise communicate with you for marketing purposes.

c. Interest-based advertising.

When you visit our Site, we may collect information about your online activities over time to provide you with advertising about products and services tailored to your individual interests (this type of advertising is called "interest-based advertising"). These third parties may place or recognize a unique cookie or other technology on your browser (including the use of pixel tags). Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent prior to processing of your information for the purpose of interest-based advertising.

You may see our ads on other websites or mobile apps because we may participate in advertising networks. Ad networks allow us to target our messaging to users based on a range of factors, including demographic data, users' inferred interests and browsing context (e.g. the time/date of your visit to our Site, the pages you viewed, the links that you clicked on,etc.). This technology also helps us track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts and to know if you have seen one of our advertisements.

We also work with Google AdWords and other advertising networks. You can opt out of behavioral advertising if you prefer. Note that if you opt out of interest-based advertising, you may see advertising that is not relevant to you. At present, there is no industry standard for recognizing Do Not Track browser signals, so we are not able to adapt to them.
