VentureTech Solutions Website

The VentureTech Solutions Site is primarily directed to our customers (our “Customers”) and prospective customers, which are generally businesses and third-party affiliates. We don’t collect non-pseudonymized personal data such as email addresses or telephone numbers from the VentureTech Solutions Site unless it is provided to us. For example, a user may choose to send us an email that contains their personal data, or request information or services from one of our third-party affiliates through one or more social media sites, in which case the social media sites may ask for contact information such as their name, company name, email, and telephone number in order to process the user’s request. Our Customers typically provide non-pseudonymized personal data in order to set-up an account with our third-party affiliates, including their name, home or business address, email address, and/or telephone number.  Although we do not use the non-pseudonymized personal data we’re provided, the third-party affiliates will use that data to answer questions, send requested information, and/or to service their consumers’ accounts. We also collect pseudonymized personal data from the VentureTech Solutions Site. Pseudonymized personal data is information that cannot by itself be used to directly identify a particular person or entity, and may include an IP host address, pages viewed, browser type, Internet browsing and usage habits, Internet Service Provider, domain name, the time/date of a visit to a website, the referring URL, and a computer or device’s operating system. We do not enable our platform on the sections of the VentureTech Solutions Site that enable our Customers to login and manage their accounts, nor is the technology employed within the platform (e.g., the user interface).

VentureTech Solutions Technology Platform

VentureTech Solutions is an agent working under the direction of our Customers which are generally website and/or mobile application owners or operators that use our platform. We offer a data management platform that collects data from Internet users when they visit the website or mobile applications of one or more of our Customers (the “Client Site” or “Client App”, collectively, the “Client Site(s) and App(s)”). We may set additional rules for our Customers regarding how information is collected and used on the platform, but such data is collected and used subject to the individual privacy policy for each Customer. We use a number of different technologies to maintain user statistics, collect data, and to help us operate the platform and describe some of them below.
