What is a cookie
A cookie is a tiny amount of information that our application store on your computer or mobile device. It is very important to understand that this application doesn't allow us to access information on your computer or mobile device (other than very standard settings like your language and time zone). So, we can only store in a cookie information that we already have about you. However, what we can use the cookie to identify that the reports today is the same one you used yesterday. This is vital for almost any application. Without this cookie you'll need to give us the same information every time you visit RipSpy.

So, cookies are essential for our needs (and almost all websites and applications to work properly) but you've always had the option to disable them. Of course, in doing this we can't 'remember' the information you give us so our application stops working as you'd expect. But that's entirely your choice.
Purpose and use of cookies
Anywhere there is a setting you can choose and needs to be remembered:

• Your Continent, Country, Region and Spot choices.
• Your Units choice for the forecast.
• Your configuration for the directory map display.
• Whether you choose the old forecast display or the new beta version.

If you register for a user account with RipSpy, we must use a cookie to allow us to understand that your mobile device or computer is logged into that account (otherwise you'd need to enter your username and password every time). This also allows us to identify that the request for an entrance is coming from 'you' and tie that information together with other information you explicitly give us. While this legal directive doesn't ask us to talk about what we store in our database about you it's information like your email address, your chosen username and any content you upload (photos, videos, forum posts).

Again, do remember that none of this information is available to us through any mechanism other than you providing it for us. We use no other sources for gathering information about you than those you provide.

We use a cookie provided by google analytics to recognise that your device is requesting pages from our application. This allows us to identify patterns of usage for the application.
Again, this cookie doesn't allow us to identify you personally or any personal information about you for our analysis. This just allows us to improve our application and provide common statistics that our advertisers and sponsors need, not about you, but about overall usage of the application. For example we cannot tell that our average user is 18-35, college educated and drives an estate car but we can tell the average user of our application views about 5.7 pages each time they come to the website and visits 2-3 times a day. It's important to reiterate that we use general information about how many people visit our website as part of selling advertising, but we don‘t offer or operate any scheme to target advertising to specific information that's stored about you personally other than the country from which you visit, for which we don't need to use cookies but we add here to ensure this document is as thorough as possible.

To display advertising banners, we use these statistics and analytics to ensure that our advertising is being delivered properly. For example, we may use a cookie to ensure that you see an advertising banner only a certain number of times for a specific advertiser.
