What Information Does RL International Collect?

RL International will collect personal information from our users for different purposes. Information gathered online can be identified as either anonymous or identifiable. Anonymous information is information that cannot be traced back to the individual. Identifiable information is information that is specific to the individual.

To register for an account, a user has to create a profile by completing a questionnaire online. Through the completion of the questionnaire by a user we collect the following information: (i) full name; (ii) address; (iii) email address; (iv) username; and (v) password. The provision of this personal information is mandatory and if you choose not to submit the requested information we will not be able to provide you with an account for the Website.

We do not require that you register for an account in order to browse the Website. However, in order to access certain features or areas of the Website, you will need to register for an account.

Our Website provides you with the opportunity to email a webpage to another person. For this feature to work, we may need to collect your name and email address and the name and email address of those to whom you send the webpage. RL International does not store this information and it is used for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to track users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We do not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.
