A cookie is a piece of text information that a web server may transfer to your web browser when you visit this website. Cookies are commonly used by websites to improve your experience and to enable systems to recognize your browsers. Only the information that you provide, or the choices you make while visiting a website, can be stored in a cookie. For example, the site cannot determine your email name unless you choose to type it. Allowing a website to create a cookie does not give that or any other site access to the rest of your computer and only the site that created the cookie can interpret it.


We may use cookies for a variety of purposes: to assist us in providing our services to you, to allow you to change pages during your visit to our website without reentering your password, to track activity on our website, or to determine whether you came to our site from an affiliate website. We may use temporary, session cookies that expire and are automatically erased when you close your browser window to enable you to perform actions when you are signed into your account. We may use long term, persistent cookies that expire in the distant future to better understand usage patterns so that we can improve our Service or to remember your choices for our Services. We may permit third parties to place cookies through our website to provide us with better insights into the use of our Services and user demographics or to provide relevant advertising to you. These third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Services.

By accessing or using our Services, you consent to the placement of cookies on your computer or other device as described in this Privacy Policy. You may adjust your browser settings to refuse or limit cookies, but if you do, certain features of our site may be limited or not work at all.

Web Analytics

We utilize tools to collect information around the use of this site. Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics are deployed throughout the site to collect information such as how often users visit, what pages they visit, and other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we receive from our web analytics tools only to improve this site. The analytics collects the IP address assigned to the user on the date this site was visited, rather than the user’s name or other identifying information. We do not combine the information collected through the use of web analytics tools with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics plant a permanent cookie on your web browser to identify you as a unique user the next time you visit this site, the cookie cannot be used by anyone but Google or Adobe.

When you enter sensitive or private consumer information, the information is protected using physical, technical, and administrative security measures to reduce the risks of loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure and alteration. Ria’s database of consumer information resides on Ria’s servers behind various firewalls to protect against loss, misuse, theft, and unauthorized modification, deletion, or alteration of the information contained in the database.


Ria has taken preventative measures to restrict access to sensitive data and private information. Only those employees and agents who need to know that information to provide services related to the processing of fund transfers are granted access to personal information.
