Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Venture Media collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Venture Media's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Venture Media's visitors use the site. From time to time, Venture Media may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Venture Media also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Venture Media does not use such information to identify its visitors, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Venture Media may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the site. For instance, Venture Media may monitor the most popular pages on the site. Venture Media may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Venture Media does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Venture Media discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Venture Media believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Venture Media, third parties or the public at large.
