You can generally visit our Site without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, in certain sections of this Site, we may invite you to contact us with questions or comments or request information, or provide us with feedback. Due to the nature of some of these activities, we may collect personally identifiable information, such as your name and contact data such as your physical address, email address and phone number.

Children’s Privacy

Rupp recognizes the privacy interests of children and we encourage parents and guardians to take an active role in their children’s online activities and interests. This Site is not intended for children under the age of 18.

Cookies

We may use small text files called cookies to improve overall Site experience. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the visitor’s or user’s hard drive containing information about the visitor or user. Cookies generally do not permit us to personally identify you.

Aggregate Information

The Site may track the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, IP address, and browser type and we may analyze this data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be maintained, used and disclosed in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable information. We may use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer and improve the Site, track visitors’ or users’ movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.

Disclosure

We may provide your personally identifiable information and the data generated by cookies and the aggregate information to the vendors and service agencies that we may engage to assist us in providing our services to you. For example, we may provide your personally identifiable information to a marketing, research and/or advertising agency to send advertising to you on our behalf. We reserve the right to release information contained within our access logs concerning any visitor or user when that visitor or user is in violation of our Terms of Use, or partakes (or is reasonably suspected of partaking) in any illegal activity, even without a subpoena, warrant or other court order, and to release such information in response to court and governmental orders, civil subpoenas, applicable federal and state legal and requlatory requirements, compliance with any governmental or judicial process, law enforcement or other government emergency response department or agencies and as otherwise required by law. We cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who may be using our servers or services for illegal activities. We also reserve the right to report any suspected illegal activity to law enforcement individuals or entities for investigation or prosecution. We may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Rupp participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of Rupp’s assets to which this Site relates.

The Site may provide links to other Web sites or resources over which Rupp does not have control (“External Web Sites”). Such links do not constitute an endorsement by Rupp of those External Web Sites. You acknowledge that Rupp is providing these links to you only as a convenience, and further agree that Rupp is not responsible for the content of such External Web Sites, nor is Rupp responsible for any privacy practices or policies they maintain or employ.

Security

We may employ procedural and technological security measures that are reasonably designed to help protect your personally identifiable information from loss, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Rupp may use firewalls, password protection and other security measures to help prevent unauthorized access to your personally identifiable information. Because Rupp cannot fully predict all threats and new ones are evolving every day, Rupp makes no warranty, guarantee, or representation that your use of this Site or your information can always be secure or will never be subject to unauthorized access, misuse or improper disclosure despite the security policies, protections and other measures Rupp has implemented.
