Privacy Policy

Updated: February 15, 2021

Who we are

The Rise Small Business (“The Rise SMB“) operates and may operate other websites. The Rise SMB takes your privacy seriously. This privacy policy outlines what personal information we collect and how we process/ use it.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Like most website operators, The Rise SMB collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Rise SMB’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how The Rise SMB’s visitors use its website. From time to time, The Rise SMB may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

All web servers track basic information about their visitors. This information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses, browser details, timestamps and referring pages. None of this information can personally identify specific visitors to this site. The information is tracked for routine administration and maintenance purposes.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to The Rise SMB’s website choose to interact with The Rise SMB in ways that require The Rise SMB to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that The Rise SMB gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who subscribe to our newsletter at The Rise SMB to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with The Rise SMB are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, The Rise SMB collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with The Rise SMB. The Rise SMB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics

The Rise SMB may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. The Rise SMB may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, The Rise SMB does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Rise SMB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that:

  • (i) need to know that information in order to process it on The Rise SMB’s behalf or to provide services available at The Rise SMB’s websites, and
  • (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others.

Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using The Rise SMB’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Rise SMB will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, The Rise SMB discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when The Rise SMB believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of The Rise SMB, third parties or the public at large.

If you are a registered user of an The Rise SMB website and have supplied your email address, The Rise SMB may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with The Rise SMB and our products.

If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Rise SMB takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies and Web Beacons

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Rise SMB uses cookies to help The Rise SMB identify and track visitors, their usage of The Rise SMB’s website, and their website access preferences. The Rise SMB visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the The Rise SMB website, with the drawback that certain features of The Rise SMB’s website may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If The Rise SMB, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that The Rise SMB goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of The Rise SMB may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.


Ads appearing on any of our websites may be delivered to users by advertising partners, who may set cookies. These cookies allow the ad server to recognize your computer each time they send you an online advertisement to compile information about you or others who use your computer. This information allows ad networks to, among other things, deliver targeted advertisements that they believe will be of most interest to you. This Privacy Policy covers the use of cookies by The Rise SMB and does not cover the use of cookies by any advertisers.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, The Rise SMB may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in The Rise SMB’s sole discretion. The Rise SMB encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a The Rise SMB account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
