Our Privacy Policy

 

 

This Privacy Policy explains the what, why and how of the information we collect when you use the Ryple application for iOS or Android mobile devices (the “Ryple App”). It also explains the ways we use and disclose that information. NuKru, LLC owns the intellectual property rights associated with the Ryple App and the live stream scoring data associated with it.

 

1. DEFINITIONS. When we say “we,” “us,” “our,” “NUKRU,” or “Company,” we’re referring to NuKru, LLC, an Indiana limited liability company. When we say “you” or “Subscriber,” we’re referring to the person or entity that’s registered with us to use the Ryple App, as well as the associated USGS stream gauge data, solunar data and local barometric pressure data used to define the optimal conditions for the occurrence of bug hatches up to seven days in advance (the “API Data”). NUKRU offers the Ryple App through the Company’s websites: www.ryple.com and www.nukru.com (each a “Website” and together the “Websites”). In the course of providing the API Data through the Ryple App, we may collect personal information about you.

 

2. CHANGES. If there are any changes to this Privacy Policy, we’ll post them on the Website or send them to the last email address you gave us. Any changes will be effective as of the date we post on the Website or send the email (or whichever date is later). You may object to any changes within 20 days after they’re posted on our Website or delivered to you, in which case none of the proposed changes will be effective with respect to information that we’ve already collected from you, but will apply only to information we collect in the future. If you object to changes in our Privacy Policy, we’ll have to terminate your account and use of the Ryple App. That said, if we ever changed our Privacy Policy to expand our rights to use or disclose Personal Information for marketing purposes, you‘d be able to opt out without termination.

 

3. EFFECTIVE DATE. This Privacy Policy is effective with respect to any data that we’ve collected, or collect, about and/or from you.

 

4. QUESTIONS. If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, or if you want to update, delete or change any Personal Information you’ve submitted on the Website, please contact us here.

 

5. INFORMATION WE COLLECT.

 

a. Information You Provide to Us. When you register to use the Ryple App, communicate with our customer service team, our billing processor, communicate through the message center on the developer’s portal, or send us an email, you’re giving us information that we collect. That information may include your IP address, name, physical address, email address, phone number, credit card information, and other details like gender, occupation, and other demographic information. By giving us this information, you consent to your information being collected, used, disclosed, and stored by us as described in our Terms of Use and API Use Policy.

 

b. Information from your Use of the Ryple App. We may get information about how and when you use the Ryple App. This information may include your IP address, time, date, browser used, GPS location, and actions taken by you within the application.

 

c. Cookies. When you register to use the Ryple App, or register on the ryple.com site, we store "cookies," which are strings of code, on your computer. We use those cookies to collect information about when you visit our Website, when you use the Ryple App, your browser type and version, your operating system, and other similar information. You may turn off cookies that have been placed on your computer by following the instructions on your browser, but if you block our cookies, it may be more difficult (and maybe even impossible) to use the Ryple App.

 

d. Information from Other Sources. We may get more information about you, like name, age, and participation in social media websites, by searching the internet or querying third parties (we’ll refer to that information as Supplemental Subscriber Information). We only collect data that’s publicly available or provided by a third party according to its terms of use.

 

6. USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION. We may use and disclose your Personal Information only as follows:

 

a. To promote use of our Services. For example, if you leave your Personal Information when you visit our Website and don’t sign up for any of our services, we may send you an email asking whether you want to sign up. And if you use the Ryple App and create an account, and we think you might benefit from using another service, functionality or product we offer, we may send you an email telling you about it.

 

b. To bill and collect money owed to us. This applies to subscribers to NUKRU’s Ryple API service. Communications about billings may include sending you emails, invoices, receipts, notices of delinquency, and alerting you if we need a different credit card number. We use third parties for secure credit card transaction processing, and we send billing information to those third parties to process your orders and credit card payments.

 

c. To send you System Alert Messages. For example, we may let you know about temporary or permanent changes to our services, like planned outages, new features, version updates, releases, abuse warnings, and changes to our Privacy Policy.

 

d. To enforce compliance with our Terms of Use and applicable law. This may include developing tools and algorithms that help us prevent violations.

 

e. To provide customer support as needed.

 

f. To protect the rights and safety of our other Ryple App users and third parties, as well as our own.

 

g. To meet legal requirements, like complying with court orders and valid subpoenas.

 

h. To provide information to representatives and advisors, like attorneys and accountants, to help us comply with legal, accounting, or security requirements.

 

i. To prosecute and defend a court, arbitration, or similar proceeding.

 

j. To support and improve the Ryple App.

 

k. To communicate with you about your account for informational, not promotional, reasons.

 

l. To transfer your information in the case of a sale, merger, consolidation, or acquisition. In that event, any acquirer will be subject to our obligations under this Privacy Policy, including your rights to access and choice. We will notify you of the change either by sending you an email or posting a notice on our Website.

 

7. PUBLIC INFORMATION AND THIRD PARTIES.

 

a. Social Media Widgets. Our Websites include social media features, like the Facebook Like button. These features may collect information about your IP address and which page you’re visiting on our site, and they may set a cookie to make sure the feature functions properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our site. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of the companies that provide them.

 

b. Links to Third-Party Sites. Our Websites include links to other websites, whose privacy practices may be different from ours. If you submit Personal Information to any of those sites, your information is governed by their privacy policies. We encourage you to carefully read the privacy policy of any Website you visit.

 

8. SECURITY.

 

a. NOTICE OF BREACH OF SECURITY. Nobody’s safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into our system that materially affects you, then we will notify you as soon as possible and later report the action we took in response.

 

b. SAFEGUARDING YOUR INFORMATION. To protect your information, our credit card processing vendor uses the latest 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology for secure transactions. Our vendor is certified as compliant with card association security initiatives, like the Visa Cardholder Information Security and Compliance (CISP), MasterCard® (SDP), and Discovery Information Security and Compliance (DISC). Our accounts require a username and password to log in. You must keep your username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party.

 

9. ACCURACY OF DATA. We do our best to keep your data accurate and up to date, to the extent that you provide us with the information we need to do that. If your data changes (like a new email address), then you’re responsible for notifying us of those changes.
