Online merchants and others who participate in Rya Collection services are encouraged to participate in industry privacy initiatives and to take a responsible attitude towards consumer privacy. However, since we do not have direct control over the policies or practices of participating merchants and other third parties, we are not responsible for the privacy practices or contents of those sites. We recommend and encourage you to review the privacy policies of merchants and other third parties before you provide any personal information or complete any transaction with such parties.

Information We Collect and How We Use It: Rya Collection collects certain information from and about its users in at least three ways, including: directly from our Web Server logs, from Cookies, and from Users.

    • The kind of browser or computers used
    • Number of links clicked within the site

Use of Cookies: Rya Collection may use cookies to personalize or enhance your experience. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on a hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses. Cookies are uniquely assigned to individual users, and can only be read by a Web Server in the domain that issued the cookie. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalize a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site recall specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, cookies both simplify the process of delivering relevant content and ease site navigation by providing and/or saving preferences, login information, and personalized functionality. Rya Collection reserves the right to share aggregated site statistics with partner companies, but does not allow other companies to place cookies on our website unless there is a temporary, overriding customer value (such as merging into www.ryacollection.com a site that relies on third-party cookies). You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but users can usually modify browser settings to decline cookies. Rejecting cookies by changing browser settings may disable some of the functionality on our Website.

Use of Pixel Tags: We also use "pixel tags" (sometimes called “Internet tags”, "web beacons" or "clear GIFS"), which are tiny graphic images, on our website. Pixel tags help us analyze our customers' online behavior and measure the effectiveness of our website and our advertising. We work with service providers that help us track, collect, and analyze this information.
Pixel tags on our website may be used to collect information about your visit, including the pages you view, the features you use, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with the site. This information may include your computer's Internet protocol (IP) address, your browser type, your operating system, date and time information, and other technical information about your computer. We may also track certain information about the identity of the website you visited immediately before coming to our site. We do not otherwise track any information about your use of other websites.
Pixel tags and cookies in our emails may be used to track your interactions with those messages, such as when you receive, open, or click a link in an email message from us. 
We also work with business partners that use tracking technologies to deliver advertisements on our behalf across the Internet. These companies may collect information about your visits to our website and your interaction with our advertising and other communications. 
We may combine the information we collect through cookies and pixel tags with other information we have collected from you. This information may be used to improve our website, to personalize your online experience, to help us deliver information to you, to determine the effectiveness of our advertising, and for other internal business purposes.
Please note that we will not facilitate the merging of personally-identifiable information with non-personally identifiable information previously collected from Display Advertising features based on cookies unless we have the robust notice of, and the user’s prior affirmative (i.e., opt-in) consent to, that merger.
