Information Collection

“Personal information” means any information that may be used to identify an individual or company, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, email address, a home, postal, business or other physical address, other contact information, title, occupation, industry, and other information such as behavioral data and demographical information we may need to provide a service to You. This Personal Information is kept private and in strict confidence and never released to anyone without Your express authority. We may request such authority to share some of this information with a third party for purposes of fulfilling the services You have requested through our Site.

When You browse our Site, You do so anonymously, unless You have previously registered with us. We do not automatically collect personal information, including Your email address, but You may voluntarily provide this information to us. Risen Media collects personal information when You register with Risen Media, when You use certain Risen Media Services, when You ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, or when You submit Your personal information to Risen Media for any other reason. From time to time, Risen Media may receive personal information from business partners and vendors. Risen Media only uses such information if it has been collected in accordance with acceptable privacy practices consistent with this privacy policy and applicable laws. We may combine and/or supplement any of the information we collect from or about You with other information and use it in the manner described in this privacy policy.

“Non-personal Information” means information about the characteristics and activities of an individual from which any personal information has been removed, such as IP address, type of browser or mobile device used, mobile device identifier(s), operating system, referral URLs, pages visited, links clicked, user interactions, hardware settings, and search terms. Nothing in this policy limits our use of non-personal information. We do log Your IP address (the Internet address of Your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website You visit and how long You spend there, but we do not link Your IP address to any personal information unless You have registered with us. Like most commercial websites, the Risen Media Site may use standard technologies, such as “cookies” and other HTML tools, to collect information about how You use the site or to record that You opened an email marketing message. We use this information to improve Your experience, understand user activity, and improve the quality of our Services.

Risen Media uses personal and non-personal information for several general purposes: to fulfill Your requests for certain services, to personalize Your experience on our Site and Services, to keep You up to date on the latest announcements, software updates, or other information we think You would like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, to better understand Your needs and provide You with better services, to compile aggregate data for internal and external business purposes, to run advertising via our advertising display partners on third party websites and mobile applications, to monitor against fraud and otherwise protect users and our business, to administer and troubleshoot the Services, and as otherwise stated in this privacy policy or our Terms & Conditions.


Risen Media will not transfer Your personal information to third parties without Your consent. In most cases we will provide You with the opportunity to “opt in” prior to receiving direct marketing, email newsletter or market research information. This means we will require Your affirmative action to indicate Your consent before we use Your information for purposes other than the purpose for which it was submitted. At the very minimum, we will always give You the opportunity to “opt out” of receiving such materials. This means we assume You have given us Your consent to collect and use Your information in accordance with this privacy policy unless You take affirmative action to indicate that You do not consent, for instance by clicking or checking the appropriate option or box at the point of collection. We may also use Your information to send You, or to have our business partners send You, direct marketing information or contact You for market research. When You receive promotional email communications from us, You can indicate a preference to stop receiving promotional email communications from us by following the “unsubscribe” instructions in a promotional email communication from us. However, we may still send You email communications relating to our Services.

Some Web beacons may be unusable if You elect to reject their associated cookies. Risen Media may also use customized links or other similar technologies to track email links that You click. We may associate that information with Your personal information in order to provide You more focused email communications or purchase information. Each email communication includes an unsubscribe link allowing You to stop delivery of that type of communication.
