What Personal Information does VentureSeek collect?
The information we gather from customers enables us to personalize and improve our services, and allows our users to set up a user account and profile that can be used to personalize their experience on the Website. We collect the following types of information from our customers:
Personal information you provide:
We receive and store any information you enter on our web site or provide to us in any other way. The types of personal information collected may include your name, email address, IP address, browser information, username, password and any other information necessary for us to provide our services.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of our site's features. The personal information you provide is used for such purposes as answering questions, improving the content of the site, customizing the advertising and content you see, and communicating with you about VentureSeek’s products and services, including specials and new features.
Personal information collected automatically:
- We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with our web site or use our services. VentureSeek automatically receives and records information on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, cookie information, browser information, operating system, timestamps, and the page you requested.
- Generally, our service automatically collects usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our web site and its components, similar to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show.
- VentureSeek only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the site or services so that we can make the site appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve those services.
We use a tool called “Google Analytics” to collect information about use of this site. Google Analytics collects information such as how often users visit this site, what pages they visit when they do so, and what other sites they used prior to coming to this site. We use the information we get from Google Analytics only to improve this site.
We use IP Anonymization (or IP masking) in Google Analytics as described in this document: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=en
This means that the data sent by our site to Google Analytics is completely anonymized, your IP address cannot be matched to your usage of our site. Your usage data is only used for statistical purposes and for nothing else.
We do not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with personally identifiable information. Although Google Analytics plants 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.
We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from VentureSeek if your computer or device supports this type of functionality. cp-lage uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful and to improve the web site and our services. When you receive email from cp-lage, you can opt out of receiving further e-mails by following the included instructions to unsubscribe.
