Ripple Cookie Policy

Last updated: June 2023

Cookies and other similar technologies allow websites and apps to store information or gain access to information stored on your device to enable certain features and distinguish you from other visitors. These technologies are used by most website and app providers to let users navigate between pages efficiently, ensure web security, understand how their websites are used, remember user preferences and generally improve the user experience.

This Cookies Policy explains how Ripple uses cookies and other similar technologies in connection with apps, websites, software and related services provided by Ripple (together, the “Platform”), and the choices you have to control them. Unless otherwise stated in this Cookies Policy, our Privacy Policy applies to the data we collect via cookies.

1. How do cookies work

Cookies are small text files that enable websites and apps to uniquely identify your browser or device. Cookies normally work by storing unique identifiers and other information on your browser or device. When you visit a website or use an app, the service provider of the website or app may access the information stored on the cookies and other similar technologies for different purposes. Like many websites and apps, Ripple uses cookies and similar technologies such as software development kits (“SDKs”), pixels, APIs, tags and local storage (collectively, “cookies” in this Cookies Policy).

Most of the cookies on our Platform are set on browsers or devices and used directly by us. These are referred to as “first-party” cookies. We refer to cookies set by other companies on the Platform as “third party cookies”. You can find more information about the companies that use cookies on the Platform here.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Some cookies are "session cookies", meaning that they exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically or shortly after you close your browser.

Other cookies are "persistent cookies", meaning that they persist after your browser or app is closed. Persistent cookies are set to automatically expire after a defined duration (for example, a few days, weeks or months). When you return to the website (or visit other websites that use the same cookies) or app, the provider or its service providers can recognise the persistent cookies they have set on your device.

2. What are cookies used for

Cookies enable us to provide, improve, secure and analyse our services. They also enable us to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. We have set out additional information about what cookies are used for below.
Some cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with the Platform and the features you have requested and, as a result, they cannot be declined or subsequently disabled.

Security and anti-spam
Some cookies are used to keep you and the Platform safe and secure. For example, these types of cookies enable us to prevent fraudulent attacks to our Platform, detect non-human traffic (bots), and schedule traffic and distribute it properly across networks.
Functionality and customisation
Some cookies help the Platform work more efficiently and enable us to tailor the Platform to your preferences.
Some cookies are used to understand how you use the Platform, including which pages you view and how you interact with content. This information enables us to measure any errors that may occur on the Platform and resolve them quickly to provide you with a better experience. The information we obtain via these cookies is also used to test different design ideas, and report and evaluate user activity and patterns to have a better understanding of how the Platform is working.

3. How can you control cookies

Some of the cookies that we use are strictly necessary to operate the Platform. As a result, you cannot control the use of such cookies. You can choose to accept or refuse other types of cookies that are not strictly necessary to provide you with the Platform.

Blocking and/or deleting cookies may mean that some of your Platform preferences will be lost. Blocking all cookies may also mean certain functionalities on the Platform will not operate properly. Please note that if you choose to refuse or delete cookies you may not be able to use the full functionalities of the Platform.

Your Web Browser Settings
Most browsers will also allow you to choose the level of privacy settings you want. This lets you control your preferences for cookies and local storage settings so that you can:

  • See what cookies or other locally stored data you have and delete them on an individual basis;
  • Block cookies from particular sites;
  • Block all cookies from being set; or
  • Delete all cookies/site data.

We may occasionally update this Cookies Policy from time to time. We will notify you of any material changes to this policy by a notice provided through the Platform or by other means. The "Last Updated" date at the top of this Cookies Policy reflects the effective date of such policy changes.
