The Internet is an amazing tool. It has the power to change the way we live, and we’re starting to see that potential today. With only a few mouse-clicks, you can follow the news, look up facts, buy goods and services, and communicate with others from around the world. It’s important to Startup Venture Network to help our customers retain their privacy when they take advantage of all the Internet has to offer.
We believe your business is no one else’s. Your privacy is important to you and to us. So we’ll protect the information you share with us. To protect your privacy, Startup Venture Network follows different principles in accordance with worldwide practices for customer privacy and data protection.
- We won’t sell or give away your name, mail address, phone number, email address, or any other information to anyone.
- We’ll use state-of-the-art security measures to protect your information from unauthorized users.
We will ask you when we need information that personally identifies you (personal information) or allows us to contact you. Generally, this information is requested when you create a Registration ID on the site or when you place an order or when you register for our email newsletters. We use your Personal Information for four primary purposes:
- To make the site easier for you to use by not having to enter information more than once.
- To help you quickly find services or information about your account.
- To help us create content most relevant to you.
- To provide instructions related to our services, update you as to the status of your participation in one of our services and alert you to special offers, updated information and other new services from Startup Venture Network.
If you choose not to register or provide personal information, you can still view much of the website but you will not be able to access areas that require registration.
If you decide to register and do not want us to communicate with you about other offers regarding Startup Venture Network products, programs, events, or services by email, you may opt out from receiving any further communications at any time. PLEASE NOTE that if you choose to purchase any of our services, it is essential that you allow us to send you important emails until the process is complete.
We will provide you with the means to ensure that your personal information is correct and current. You may review and update this information at any time in the Members Area. There, you can:
- View and edit personal information you have already given us.
- Sign up for electronic newsletters about our services and products.
- Register. Once you register, you won’t need to do it again. Wherever you go on StartupVentureNetwork.com, your information stays with you.
Startup Venture Network has taken strong measures to protect the security of your personal information and to ensure that your choices for its intended use are honored. We take strong precautions to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
We guarantee your e-commerce transactions to be 100% safe and secure. When you place orders or access your personal account information, you’re utilizing secure server software SSL, which encrypts your personal information before it’s sent over the Internet. SSL is one of the safest encryption technologies available.
Startup Venture Network strictly protects the security of your personal information and honors your choices for its intended use. We carefully protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
Your personal information is never shared outside the company without your permission, except under conditions explained above. Inside the company, data is stored in password-controlled servers with limited access. Your information may be stored and processed in the Unites States or any other country where Startup Venture Network, its subsidiaries, affiliates or agents are located.
You also have a significant role in protecting your information. No one can see or edit your personal information without knowing your user name and password, so do not share these with others.
Every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.
When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. Even if you switch computers, you won’t have to re-register – just use your login information to identify yourself.
WHAT WE DO WITH THE INFORMATION YOU SHARE
When you register an account with us, you provide us with your contact information, including your name and email address. We use this information to send you updates about your order, questionnaires to measure your satisfaction with our service, and announcements about new and exciting services that we offer. When you order from us, we ask for your credit card number and billing address. We use this information only to bill you for the product(s) you order at that time. For your convenience, we do save billing information in case you want to order from us again, but we don’t use this information again without your permission.
We occasionally hire other companies and contractors to provide limited services on our behalf. We will only provide those companies and contractors with the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
Startup Venture Network will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law, or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on Startup Venture Network or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of Startup Venture Network and its family of Websites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of Startup Venture Network, its Websites, or the public.
