The following describes the types of personal and other information we may collect about you, and how we use and maintain that information:
Registration. Before you can fully utilize our skills and opportunities matching service (the "Service"), you must register with Venturocket by providing us with your email address, a password, and a ZIP code corresponding to your desired geographic region, as well as, if you are a Seeker, your first and last name and preferred employment type (e.g., "Full-time," "Part-time," "Contract," and "Contract-to-Hire") and, if you are a Provider, your company name. Additionally, when you create a profile to enable your use of the Service, you will be asked for other information describing your skills or skill requirements, as the case may be (your "Profile"). If you are a Provider, you will be asked to provide a headline description ("Headline"). This Headline is a 140 character (including spaces) description in which you should provide information such as the job title and a brief job description, and/or the idea candidate. If you are a Seeker, you will similarly be asked to provide a Headline, also composed of 140 characters (including spaces). You should provide a description of yourself, and/or the ideal job you hope to find. This is like a 140-character cover letter. Providers and Seekers should not enter any personally identifiable information such as personal first and last names (company names are acceptable), phone numbers, email addresses, or any other information that could be used to determine the precise identity of a live human being. A reminder is prominently displayed on the Service that reads "For your privacy, do not include any personal information." For more information, please see below. We request all of the foregoing information for identification purposes, to communicate with you regarding your account, to collect payment for the Service, and to facilitate the Service. We may keep this information indefinitely.
Additional Contact Information. In addition to the information described above, you may also elect to provide additional contact information, such as your telephone number and mailing address, which you can later elect to opt in to make available to other users. We may keep this information indefinitely.
Correspondence. If you correspond with us through the Site (or via email), we may gather the communications that you submit in a file specific to you. We may keep this information indefinitely.
URL and IP addresses. Like many other websites, Venturocket collects information about users' utilization and navigation of the Site. This information helps us to design the Site to better suit our users' needs. For example, the Site will track the URL that you visited before you came to the Site, the URL to which you next go and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server and to administer the Site. Your IP address also is used to help identify you and to gather broad demographic information.
Venturocket will not share, rent, sell or otherwise disclose any of the personally identifiable information that we collect about you, except when we have your permission or in any of the following situations:
If you use the Site outside of the United States, information that we collect about you will be transferred to servers inside the United States and maintained indefinitely, which may involve the transfer of information out of countries located in the European Economic Area. By allowing Venturocket to collect information about you, you consent to such transfer and processing of your data.
To help protect the privacy of data you transmit through the Site, where personally identifiable information is requested, Venturocket uses technology designed to encrypt the information that you input before it is sent to us. In addition, Venturocket takes steps intended to protect the user data we collect against unauthorized access. However, you should keep in mind that the Site is run on software, hardware and networks, any component of which may, from time to time, require maintenance or experience problems or breaches of security beyond our control.
You may correct or update information collected about you through the Site by managing your account profile or by contacting Venturocket at the email or mailing address noted below. We will update our records as promptly as possible. For our records, we may retain original and updated information for reasons such as technical constraints, dispute resolution, troubleshooting and agreement enforcement.
We do not knowingly collect or maintain personally identifiable information from persons under 13 years old, and no part of the Site is directed to persons under 13. IF YOU ARE UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR ACCESS THE SITE AT ANY TIME OR IN ANY MANNER. If Venturocket learns that personally identifiable information of any person under 13 years old has been collected without verifiable parental consent, then Venturocket will take the appropriate steps to delete this information. If you are a parent or guardian and discover that your child under the age of 13 has obtained a Venturocket account, then you may alert Venturocket at the address below and request that we delete that child's personal information from our systems.
If you access the Site as a representative of a third party, such as your employer, that party may review and modify your personal information, ask us to delete your personal information, or request that we cease collecting your personal information. If such a third party asks us to delete your personal information or cease collecting your personal information, we may terminate your right to access the Site.
