Privacy Policy


Effective November 20, 2015, this Privacy Policy by Ringorang Worldwide LLC ("we" or "us" or "our" or "ours") governs your use of the software application Ringorang for mobile and personal computing devices (the "App"). Upon joining a Ringorang challenge branded and promoted by a sponsor ("Sponsor"), your use of the App within the parameters of the Sponsor's challenge will be governed by the Sponsor's privacy policy if provided. In the event there is a conflict between the Sponsor's privacy policy and this Privacy Policy, the Sponsor's privacy policy will prevail. You can find the Sponsor's privacy policy, if provided, in the App where the link appears on the Challenge Details page.

Introduction to the User Experience

Users are invited by the Sponsor of a Ringorang program to join a challenge, or a series of challenges, which is branded by the Sponsor. A "challenge" is a period of gameplay that ends with a named winner. In a challenge, the App pushes questions ("Q" or "Qs") to users, providing users with an opportunity to engage simultaneously on a ticking clock in a real-time contest experience. If a user does not answer a Q when it is delivered "live" -- or what is sometimes known as "group" mode -- then the user may answer the Q at any time prior to the completion of the applicable challenge in "makeup" mode, or what is sometimes known as "solo" mode. Qs are delivered through the App at scheduled times which are typically not announced to the users as they are typically designed to catch users at unexpected moments. Each Q is presented in a timed sequence that typically consists of a clue, a multiple-choice question, a follow-up insight and, optionally, an opportunity to click through to additional "learn more" information. Users may also receive occasional push notifications - what are sometimes known as "Flash Messages" -- and/or emails that complement a Ringorang challenge. The Sponsor may offer prizes to users who achieve a certain rank on a challenge leaderboard, or may offer giveaway prizes based on random selection or drawing.
