If you do not agree with this policy, you must immediately stop using the website.

The Personal Information we Collect

OnionRanks may collect your private information in the following ways:

Automatically provided non-identifying information: When you use our website, some of your personal but non-identifying information may be routinely provided to OnionRanks by your computer/device. This is because our web servers are designed to recognize every user’s IP address, and may routinely collect data about your internet service provider (ISP), your browser and operating system, time and date stamps, referring and exit pages, and clickstream data. This category of information helps OnionRanks to deploy our services to meet our users' needs better and to enrich their website experience.

Use and Disclosure of Your Personal Information

OnionRanks may use your personal information for these reasons:

  • To provide the information that you request;
  • To confirm that you are indeed who you say you are and to validate your identity;
  • To manage the provision of our services;
  • To provide you with our customer relations services;
  • To comply with relevant laws and regulatory requirements, which may include any request made by a governmental authority as it relates to legal proceedings;
  • To respond to any queries and complaints that you may have;
  • For marketing purposes;
  • To detect and/or prevent fraud and financial crimes.

Sharing Your Personal Information with Others

We may share your personal information with the following third parties and under the following circumstances:

Service Providers: We use several service providers to carry out certain functions and to provide specific services in the United States. We may share your private information with these providers, subject to the confidentiality obligations consistent with this Privacy Policy, and with the strict instruction that these third parties use your private information only on our behalf and only according to our instructions.

Marketing: We may share your personal information with some partnering entities for marketing purposes as well as to promote relevant services. The other purpose of sharing your information in such a way is to keep you fully informed about certain services, products, and special offers.

To comply with the law: We may share your personal information with appropriate legal authorities if we believe that we must do so in compliance with a law, regulation, or legal request. This may be to protect the safety of other person(s); to address security, technical or fraud issues, and/or to protect our rights and/or property.

Save for the conditions above; we will never deliberately sell, transfer, or share your personal information with a third party.

Our Use of Cookies

We make use of the cookies technology, as most other websites do. This makes it easy for our website to recognize you and your browser anytime you log on to the website and allows us to offer you an enhanced and personalized experience anytime you use the website.

Cookies are tiny files that are automatically downloaded to your computer to improve your experience. You have the choice of allowing or disabling cookies on your web browser.

You can disallow the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser.

In most cases, however, disabling cookies often disables the functionality and features of the website. It is therefore recommended that you leave cookies all on, especially if you are not sure whether you need them.

We use cookies for a host of reasons, as detailed below.

The cookies we set: OnionRanks uses adverts to offset the costs of running this website as well as in the provision of funding for further development. We thus use behavioral advertising cookies to ensure that we provide you with the most relevant advertisements where possible, and do this by anonymously tracking your interests so that we can present similar things that may interest you.

Third-party cookies: In certain special cases, we may also use cookies that are provided by trusted third parties.

Google Analytics: We also make use of Google Analytics, which is one of the most universally used and trusted analytics solutions to assist us in our understanding of how you use the website. This allows us to brainstorm on possible ways that we can improve your browsing experience and helps us to keep on producing engaging content. These cookies track characteristics such as how long you spent on the website and the pages that you clicked on.

Others: We occasionally test new features on the website and make subtle changes to the manner that the website is delivered. During this phase, we deploy cookies that ensure that you receive a consistent experience on the website, while ensuring that we understand which optimizations our users (including you) appreciate the most.

Minors

Our website and its content and services are specifically meant for an adult audience and are not targeted towards minors. We will never intentionally collect personal information from persons under the age of 18, except this is done with full parental consent or as permitted by the law.

Information Security

We do all that is in our power to make sure that your personal information is safe, and we implement a host of security measures to do this. These security measures include physical, administrative, and technical safeguards as well as the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) encryption technology. Also, your personal information can only be accessed by a limited number of authorized professionals who are thereafter mandated to keep the information confidential.

You however, understand and fully accept that there is no full assurance of data security for information available on or through the internet. We will thus not be liable for the unauthorized access to your personal information that is beyond our control.

Changes to Privacy Policy

We may occasionally modify and review this Privacy Policy as deemed necessary by us and without notifying any user beforehand. We will, however, publish such modifications and/or revisions on the website so that you are always informed about the type of information that we collect and how we use such information. Any use by you of our website after changes are published shall mean that you agree with the modified privacy policy.
