Venture Hype Corporation (referred to herein as “Venture Hype,” “We”, “Us” or “The Good Guys”) promises to keep your info private and to safeguard your privacy online. Please read the info below about our use of your personal and business info (collectively “Information”). “Website” means VentureHype.com, including all pages under this domain.
Collection of Information. We don’t collect any Information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. (If we do, you can tell our mums and dads.) You provide certain Information to us when you (a) join our mailing list to receive email updates; (b) enter our sweepstakes or contests; (c) sign up as a premium member.
Disclosure of Information. Unless we tell you otherwise, we don’t sell, share or rent your Information to any third parties unless we’ve received your express approval to do so. You should note that Information that you voluntarily disclose in any forums, message boards and/or news groups that are offered on the Website may be disclosed to and used by third parties. So don’t post anything when you’re a bit squiffy.
We may partner with third parties to provide specific services related to Information collected on the Website. We may share aggregated demographic Information with our partners. This isn’t linked to any personal info that can identify any individual person. Promise.
In situations where required by law, we may share this Information in co-operation with law-enforcement authorities. So, be good.
Use of Information. We use Information, among other things, to personalize your service, to investigate activity that may violate our community membership, and to develop and market products and services that may be of interest to you. However, unless you tell us otherwise, we won’t use Information collected from the website to send unsolicited mailings to you. Cos we reckon you probably get enough of that stuff, anyway.
Third-party sites. Our websites contain links to other websites. Except for those of our company, we don’t control the content of such websites, which may change from time to time. Other sites (including those third-party sites or services that we co-brand) may have their own policies and practices, which we don’t control, and thus aren’t addressed by this policy. So don’t blame us if you find something naughty elsewhere.
Access to data/opt-out. You can modify your profile at any time. If you provide us with Information during your use of the Website, you can opt out of receiving communications from us about products and services that may be of interest to you at any time by visiting the unsubscribe page. But we’ll be sad to see you go.
Cookies and other tracking methods. When you view our Website, we might store some information on your computer. Our servers automatically collect information about which pages you visit, your browser type, your IP address, your most-recently visited URL, and your preferences, so repeated data doesn’t need to be re-entered. This info will be in the form of a “cookie” or similar file. Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer hard drive, not on our site. They’re not biscuits, and can’t be made with jelly, chocolate chips or molasses.
Cookies don’t spy on you or otherwise invade your privacy, and they can’t invade your hard drive and steal information. Rather, they help you navigate a website as easily as possible. Cookies can help us provide information that’s targeted to your interests, and they allow us to better understand how you like to use our Website, which in turn helps us focus our resources on features that are preferred by you.
You’re always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our site might go a bit wonky. In some cases, we may track or collect information about your use of our service by the numeric address assigned to the computer you’re using (your IP address) or by the URLs that you come from or leave to. These methods allow us to resolve server problems or administer your service. Generally, we don’t associate this information with any other Information that you’ve provided to us.
We may also automatically collect and store statistics and other information about you and your use of the Website both on an aggregate, non-personally identifiable basis and in a manner that may allow us to associate such information with other information about you. No inside-leg measurements or anything.
Amendments. Amendments to this policy will be posted at this URL and will be effective when posted.
Reproduction and Distribution Policies. No information on this Website may be reproduced or distributed without our expressed consent. Or else.
Forum. The posting of pyramid schemes, unlawful endeavors, or unsolicited spam on our blog, forums or other pages is strictly prohibited. All such posts will be immediately removed.
We’ll NEVER request sensitive information from forum users, such as credit card number, social security number and/or other ID number. Or calorie consumption, if you’re a female. Or the number of times you thought about a sexy woman today, if you’re a male.
Venture Hype reserves the right to refuse listings at our sole discretion.
