Rapidio is committed to always protecting your privacy and your Personal Information. To that end, we employ and maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to ensure your Personal Information is protected.
How and why we collect personal information
We primarily collect information by specifically requesting it from you. Generally, this occurs if you register at our Site or request information or a service. Usually, we and our third party service partners use your information to operate the Site and to deliver value-added services to you. Our Site also uses your information to inform you about other products or services available from us.
We may obtain Personal Information:
- When you provide it directly to us through both online and offline interactions, such as via Site submissions or when you email us;
- Automatically when you visit this Site or use the Services (such as from cookies, as further described below);
- From third parties (such as when you make payments to us using our payment processor);
- From our affiliates and partners.
- We collect certain information from you directly, such as information you enter yourself.
When using our Site or Services, you may provide contact information, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, company name, and job title.
In order to use certain features of the Site (e.g., Underwriting Assistant and other Services), you need to create a user account (“Account”). When you create or update your account, we collect and store the data you provide, such as your username, email address, password, password recovery information, date of birth, and account settings (“Account Data”).
Parts of the Services let you submit free form content, attachments, and other data for processing through the Services, as well as questions and feedback on the Site or otherwise in connection with the Services. Such shared content is submitted at your discretion, and you represent and warrant that you are permitted to submit all such shared content for processing.
When you use the Services, we collect certain data to track your progress including, without limitation, your active processing tasks, workflow progress, active workflows, as well as deadlines and reminders.
Promotions and Surveys
Communications and Support
If you contact us for support or to report a problem or concern (regardless of whether you have created an Account), we collect and store your contact information, messages, and other data in connection with such communication.
- We also collect certain information by automatic means, such as data about your device and browser characteristics.
Technical data about your computer or device, such as your IP address, device type, unique device identifiers, browser, domain and other systems data, and platform types (“System Data”).
Usage data about your interactions with the Site, including workflows accessed, time spent on the Site, pages visited, features used, your search queries, click data, date and time, performance data, usage rate of various features, and other data regarding your use of the Site and Services (“Usage Data”).
Approximate geolocation data (such as country) based on your IP address.
Information we collect when you browse our Site
We do not access information about your identity while you browse our Site. Although we collect information about the date, time, and area of our Site that you visited, you remain anonymous to us. Only if you decide to pay for and use our Services and register for an account do we collect any personally identifying information about you.
Use of Tracking; Use of IP Addresses
An IP address is a unique number that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are surfing the Internet so that your computer can be identified by the main computers, known as “Web servers,” that “serve up” or display webpages. This allows us to identify and gather general information and data about you, such as the webpages you view.
Rapidio uses a variety of third-party services to help provide the most streamlined and user-friendly Site possible. We also use third parties such as Google Analytics to help us understand how our visitors use our Site. These third-parties may collect certain information from your browser (i.e. using cookies and/or your IP address) and may tailor your ads so that you see Rapidio advertisements on other Sites. To learn more, or to opt-out of receiving online display advertisements tailored to your interests by our third-party partners, visit the Network Advertising Initiative Site. If you prefer, you can adjust your privacy settings in your browser so that your information is not tracked.
We use the following specific Cookies on our Site:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for such as remembering your login details or submitted information cannot be provided.
These cookies remember choices you make such as the country you visit our Site from, language and search parameters. This data can then be used to provide you with an experience more appropriate to your selections and to make the visits more tailored and pleasant. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other sites.
These cookies collect anonymous information on how people use our Site. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how customers arrive at our Site, browse or use our Site and highlight areas where we can improve such as navigation. The data stored by these cookies never shows personal details from which your individual identity can be established.
Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. Please note that if your browser is set to reject cookies, the Site may not recognize you when you return to the Site and some Site functionality may be lost, including access to all or parts of the Services. The Help section of your browser may tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out more about cookies and your choices with respect to collection and use of such data, you may visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Our third-party service provider employs a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web beacons/Web bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally identifiable information.
We may use clear gifs in our HTML-based emails to let us know which emails have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of certain communications and the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
How We Use the Personal Information and the Legal Grounds for Such Use
We may process the Personal Information that we collect in furtherance of our legitimate interests in providing you with the Services, to fulfill the terms of a contract you have with us, with your consent, or to comply with our legal obligations. In some cases, failure to provide such Personal Information will mean that we cannot provide you with the Services.
Specifically, we process the Personal Information we collect for one or more of the following business and legal purposes:
- operate our business (including to provide, personalize, and improve or otherwise develop this Site and our products and services);
- provide and administer the Services;
- process your requests and orders for Services, products, information, or features;
- respond to an inquiry and any related activity that may result from your inquiry;
- market and administer surveys, promotions and programs administered or sponsored by Rapidio or our partners;
- ensure the security and integrity of this Site and its content, and the Services;
- manage our vendor and integration partner relationships;
- protect our and others’ interests, rights, and property (such as to protect our copyrighted materials); and
- ensure compliance with local legal and regulatory requirements.
How We Share the Personal Information
We share Personal Information with third parties in the following ways:
- To authorized third-party service providers or others who may perform services on your or our behalf, such as features of the Services, payment processing, data analysis, and customer service and support. These service providers may access your Personal Information and are required to use it solely as directed, to provide the requested services.
- If we believe disclosure is appropriate to prevent physical, financial, or other harm, injury, or loss.
- To legal, governmental, or judicial authorities, if we believe is appropriate, as instructed or required by those authorities or applicable laws, or in relation to a legal activity, such as in response to a subpoena or investigating suspected illicit activity.

Compliance with state and federal laws
As privacy rights vary by state, you may wish to contact the appropriate agency in your state that is charged with overseeing privacy rights of consumers. In addition, state and federal regulations may require us to maintain and report demographic information on the collective activities of consumers and users. We may also be required to maintain your personal information for at least seven years in order to be in compliance with applicable federal and state laws regarding record retention.
How we protect your personal information and your privacy
We seek to use reasonable and appropriate physical, technical and administrative measures to protect the Personal Information that we collect and store. Unfortunately, no data transmission or storage system can be guaranteed 100% secure; therefore, we do not guarantee that your Personal Information will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such Personal Information. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately.
What you can do to protect yourself
While we take the security of your Personal Information seriously and have taken steps to protect it, there are also a number of precautions that you can take to protect yourself:
- If using your personal computer, ensure that your operating system and antivirus software are up to date with the latest versions.
- Create strong, unique passwords for each online service that you use and change these passwords often.
- When you finish using our Site from a public computer, log out and clear the browser’s cache file.
- Your password is an important part of our security system, and it is your responsibility to protect it. You should not share your password with any third party, and if you believe your password or account has been compromised, you should change it immediately.
Stay vigilant for scams like “phishing”. Never provide your login information in response to any email, physical mail or phone call that claims to be from Rapidio. Instead, go directly to our Site, ensuring that the URL begins with https://www.rapidio.com.
