Creating Ripple Effects

Protecting your Privacy Policy (PPP)

While you enjoy the benefits of being part of TRipples, your privacy should be protected. Thus, our Protecting your Privacy Policy or PPP has been created. It details out how committed we are in protecting your privacy. It also describes scenarios when and how information about you, as a user of our Service, is collected and disclosed.

By signing in, you will be able to use our service and when you use our Service, you give TRipples consent in collecting, storing, transmitting, and disclosing, among others, your information as described in this PPP.

Personally Identifiable Information (PII)

Personally Identifiable Information or PII, as defined by Wikipedia, is "information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context."

TRipples collects and uses specific PII in order for us to provide you the full benefits of using our services and products.

  1. Sign Up

    When you sign up on TRipples, you will provide information such as your User Name, Email Address, and Password. The User Name you choose is, by default, publicly shown on TRipples, including on your Profile Page and in search results. We encourage you (and other Ripplers) to use your real name for us to verify the veracity of your account and prevent users from having multiple accounts.
  2. Profile Page

    Your Profile Page is public. Search Engines, businesses, and third parties, among others may crawl it, cache it, and view it. Thus, enter only the information you want to share with the world. You can always remove or change the information you have entered by editing your My Profile Page. However, Tripples would need or require certain information as requirements for enjoying the full benefits of being a Rippler. The sections below present the types of information we would need to facilitate smooth and hassle-free transactions with you.
    1. Demographic Information

      Tripples may need some demographic information about you and this includes Full Name, Last Name, Gender, Date of Birth, and Address (from province to street information) and Contact Number. This information shall be used by the system to show you age-appropriate and demographically-relevant Campaigns. Moreover, this would be needed to confirm the veracity of the person behind the account holder, especially when paying cash and or giving cool rewards. Specifically, the address would be needed when cashing out so that Tripples would know where to send the money (through various express money transfer channels) just in case the Rippler does not have any bank account yet. Moreover, entering your phone number is optional. However, it may be needed, though, to contact you via telephone, if you wish to, regarding support requests, account suspension, cashing out, or collecting prizes won.
    2. Bank Details

      Upon your request to cash out your earnings from TRipples, we shall collect information for the system to transfer your earnings into cash, which is directly transferred to the bank account that you have specified. This information is deemed confidential by TRipples and will never be made public. This information includes: Bank Name, Bank Account Number, and Bank Account Holder’s Name. A phone number is needed to contact you or the bank account holder should the need arise to quickly resolve issues related to the transfer process. This cash out information is then transferred to the bank of your choice for the bank to verify and deposit the cash we're transferring to you.
    3. Identity Validation

      You may also provide other information such as Profile Photo, Valid ID, and ID Picture. This information will help us validate your age and address for us to come up with age-specific and demographic-specific campaigns. Moreover, said information will help us validate the identity of the Ripplers, especially during Cash Out. The intention is to prevent Ripplers from “Gaming” or having multiple accounts enrolled in our system. Consequently, Tripples could save money and allocate this saving to other Ripplers who might need it most instead.
  3. Inviting Friends

    You may choose to invite your friends by an invite email that is automatically sent from us to your friends when you provide us their email addresses. If your friends choose to join the Ripplers Community as a result of your invite, they will have to manually input the information on their own. Then, they have to earn at least four pesos (₱4.00) from sharing at least two campaigns at two pesos (₱2.00) each Unique Visit (UV) per campaign. Once this happens, your referral becomes successful. In short, Successful Referral means any referee earning four pesos (₱4.00) gained by sharing two (2) campaigns and earning two pesos (₱2.00) each Unique Visit (UV) per campaign.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

  1. Aggregate Demographic Data

    Aggregate demographic data may be shared with our Dripplers (clients) and other partners to give them a bird’s eye view of who our Ripplers are. Said data may be used solely for developing/crafting campaigns that are age or gender-centric, demographically-focused, or based on certain Rippler profile.
  2. Log Data and Unique Visit Monitoring

    When you use the Tripples, our servers record information (“Log Data”) such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, and cookie information. This information is not and never will be linked back to you in any way that makes it possible to identify you.
