What are cookies?

RingCentral uses “cookies” to enhance your use of our Website. “Cookies” are small text files placed on your computer’s hard drive by a Website when you visit that Website. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit to a Website so that when you return to that site, the site operator knows who you are and can personalize your visit. For example, cookies enable a Website shopping cart to function so that you only have to check out once. Consequently, cookies are often tied to the use of personal data while using our Website. If you choose not to accept the use of cookies, your use of our Website may be impaired.

Cookies allow us to do the following:

  • Complete transactions you have requested;
  • Collect information to determine which services and sections of our Website are most and least popular;
  • Personalize our Website and make recommendations to you based on services you have used in the past; 
  • Improve the ease of use of our Website, sometimes in conjunction with Web beacons.

We do not use cookies to store credit card information. RingCentral does, however, use cookies to store login information (including passwords) for customers who choose the option of storing such information on their computers.

We also use a session-based cookie to maintain continuity of navigation for you when viewing our Website during a particular on-line session. After closing the browser, the session cookie simply terminates; it is not stored on your computer’s hard drive thereafter.

In conjunction with Web beacons, RingCentral may also use cookies, but these cookies are not linked to your personal data.
