Venn values the trust You place in it. That's why Venn insists upon the highest standards for secure transactions and customer information privacy on the Venn Platform. Please read the following statement to learn about Venns's information gathering and dissemination practices.
COLLECTION OF PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION AND OTHER INFORMATION
When You use the Venn Platform, We collect and store Your personal information which is provided by You from time to time. Our primary goal in doing so is to provide you a safe, efficient, smooth and customized experience. This allows Us to provide services and features that most likely meet Your needs, and to customize Venn Platform to make Your experience safer and easier. More importantly, while doing so We may collect personal information from You that We consider necessary for achieving this purpose.
In general, You can browse the Venn Platform without telling Us who You are or revealing any personal information about Yourself. Once You give Us Your personal information, You are not anonymous to us. Where possible, We indicate which fields are required and which fields are optional. You always have the option to not provide information by choosing not to use a particular service or feature on the Venn Platform. We may automatically track certain information about You based upon Your behaviour on Our Venn Platforms. We use this information to do internal research on Our users' demographics, interests, and behaviour to better understand, protect and serve Our users. This information is compiled and analysed on an aggregated basis. This information may include the URL that you just came from (whether this URL is on Venn Platform or not), which URL You next go to (whether this URL is on Our Venn Platform or not), Your computer browser information, and Your IP address.
We use data collection devices such as "cookies" on certain pages of Venn Platform to help analyse Our web page flow, measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety. "Cookies" are small files placed on Your hard drive that assist Us in providing Our services. We offer certain features that are only available through the use of a "cookie".
If You choose to buy on Venn Platform, We collect information about Your buying behaviour.
If You transact with us, We collect some additional information, such as a billing address, a credit / debit card number and a credit / debit card expiration date and/ or other payment instrument details and tracking information from cheques or money orders.
If You choose to post messages on Our message boards, chat rooms or other message areas or leave feedback, We will collect that information You provide to us. We retain this information as necessary to resolve disputes, provide customer support and troubleshoot problems as permitted by law.
If You send Us personal correspondence, such as emails or letters, or if other users or third parties send Us correspondence about Your activities or postings on Venn Platform, We may collect such information into a file specific to you.
We collect personally identifiable information (email address, name, mobile number, credit card / debit card / other payment instrument details, etc.) from you when You set up a free account with us. While You can browse some sections of Our Venn Platform without being a registered member, certain activities (such as placing an order) do require registration. We do use Your contact information to send You offers based on Your previous orders and Your interests.
USE OF DEMOGRAPHIC / PROFILE DATA / YOUR INFORMATION
We use personal information to provide the services You request. To the extent possible, We use Your personal information to market to You or share information with certain other parties to market to You, We will provide You the ability to opt-out of such uses. We use Your personal information to resolve disputes; troubleshoot problems; help promote a safe service; collect money; measure consumer interest in Our products and services, inform You about online and offline offers, products, services, and updates; customize Your experience; detect and protect Us against error, fraud and other criminal activity; enforce our terms and conditions; and as otherwise described to You at the time of collection.
In Our efforts to continually improve Our product and service offerings, We collect and analyse demographic and profile data about Our users' activity on Venn Platform.
We identify and use Your IP address to help diagnose problems with Our server, and to administer Venn Platform. Your IP address is also used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.
We may occasionally ask You to complete optional online surveys. These surveys may ask You for contact information and demographic information (like zip code, age, or income level). We use this data to tailor Your experience on the Venn Platform, providing You with content that We think You might be interested in and to display content according to Your preferences.
A "cookie" is a small piece of information stored by a web server on a web browser so it can be later read back from that browser. Cookies are useful for enabling the browser to remember information specific to a given user. We place both permanent and temporary cookies in Your computer's hard drive. The cookies do not contain any of Your personally identifiable information.
SHARING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may share personal information with our affiliates, the Event Organizer as well as the Event Organizer’s (as defined under the T&C, available here) affiliates for various purposes, including but not limited to help with the detection and prevention of identity theft, fraud and other potentially illegal acts; correlate related or multiple accounts to prevent abuse of Our services; to facilitate marketing and promotional activities. Unless you explicitly agree to these T&Cs at the time of booking a ticket to an Event (as defined under T&Cs), the Event Organizer and its affiliates may not market to You as a result of such sharing of personal information by You.
LINKS TO OTHER SITES
Venn Platforms link to other websites that may collect personally identifiable information about You. Venn is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of those linked websites.
Venn Platforms have stringent security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of the information under Our control. Whenever You change or access Your account information, We offer the use of a secure server. Once your information is in Our possession We adhere to strict security guidelines, protecting it against unauthorized access.
