Privacy Policy


Effective Date: March 4, 2009

Ragatz Associates, Inc. ("us," "we," or "RA") is committed to respecting the privacy rights of its clients, visitors, and other users of its website ("the Site").  The Site's Privacy Policy ("Privacy Policy") explains the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information through our Site.  Please read this Privacy Policy to learn more about the ways in which we use and protect your personal information.

  1. Information Collection Practices

    1. Types of Information Collected

      1. Traffic Data Collected: We automatically track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our Site: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the Site; and (4) types of web browsers used to access the Site (collectively "Traffic Data"). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site.  We may also use "cookies" to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Site.

      2. Personal Information Collected. In order for you to access certain services that we offer via the Site, our basic advertising and information request forms may require you to provide us with certain information that personally identifies you ("Personal Information"). Personal Information may include the following categories of information: (1) Contact Data (such as your name, mailing address, company name, and e-mail address); (2) Financial Data (such as your account or credit card number); and (3) Demographic Data (such as your zip code and income).  If you communicate with us by e-mail, post information, or otherwise complete online forms, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information.
    2. Uses of Information Collected

      1. RA Use of Information. We use Contact Data to send you information about RA or our services or promotional material from some of our partners or affiliates, or to contact you when necessary.  We use your Financial Data to verify your qualifications for certain services and to bill you for services. We may use your Demographic Data to customize and tailor your experience on the Site, displaying content that we think you might be interested in and according to your preferences.

      2. Sharing of Personal Information. We share certain categories of information we collect from you in the ways described in this Privacy Policy.  We may share Demographic Data with advertisers and other third parties only on an aggregate (i.e., non-personally-identifiable) basis.  We may share Contact Data with other companies who may want to send you information about their products or services, unless you have specifically requested that we not share Contact Data with such companies.  We also share Contact Data and Financial Data with our business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Site.  Those business partners have all agreed to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality that we have promised to you in this Privacy Policy, and they will only use your Contact Data and other Personal Information to carry out their specific business obligations to RA.  If you do not want us to share your Contact Data with any third parties, please email us at info@ragatzassociates.com, but please understand that such a request will likely limit your ability to take advantage of all of the features and services we offer on the Site.

      3. User Choice Regarding Collection, Use, and Distribution of Personal Information. You may choose not to provide us with any Personal Information.  In such an event, you can still access and use much of the Site; however you will not be able to access and use those portions of the Site that require your Personal Information.
  2. Confidentiality and Security of Personal Information

    Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless such disclosure is necessary to: (a) comply with a court order or other legal process; (b) protect our rights or property; or (c) enforce our Terms and Conditions.  Your Personal Information is stored on secure servers that are not accessible by third parties.  We provide you with the capability to transmit you Personal Information via secured and encrypted channels if you use a similarly equipped web browser.

    1. Lost or Stolen Information.  You must promptly notify us if your credit card, user name, or password is lost, stolen, or used without permission.  In such an event, we will remove that credit card number, user name, or password from your account and update our records accordingly.

    2. Public Information.  The Site contains links to other websites. Please note that when you click on one of these links, you are entering another website over which RA has no control.  We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites.
  3. Updates and Changes to Privacy Policy

    We reserve the right, at any time and without notice, to add to, change, update, or modify this Privacy Policy, simply by posting such change, update, or modification on the Site and without any other notice to you.  Any such change, update, or modification will be effective immediately upon posting on the Site.
