Sapphire Ventures created this privacy statement to demonstrate our firm commitment to each individual’s right to privacy. Our privacy practices reflect current global principles and standards for handling personal information. These principles include notice of data use, choice of data use, data access, security, data transfers, and enforcement/oversight.

Consent

By using this website, you consent to the collection and use of the information as described herein. When you visit our web site, we may record your IP address and use Automated Tools (defined below) to gather general information about you and your interests. We may further collect and process any information and data that you volunteer to us, e.g. when you register for events, subscribe to newsletters, or participate in online surveys or discussion groups.

The information Sapphire Ventures collects to understand your needs and interests helps Sapphire Ventures deliver a consistent and personalized experience. We will use such information only as described in this Privacy Statement and/or in the way we specify at the time of collection. We will not subsequently change the way your personal data is used without your consent, as required by applicable law.

Automated Tools

In addition to the information you provide, Sapphire Ventures may also collect information during your visit to a Sapphire Ventures website through the use of cookies and other commonly used Internet technologies and information-gathering tools. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived at an Sapphire Ventures website.

Cookies

We may use cookies to deliver personalized content and to tailor our information to how you and others use the site. Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your user experience and you may not be able to save customized settings like login information.

Email Addresses

If you choose to give us your email address, we will communicate with you via email. We do not share your email address with others outside the Sapphire Ventures Group of companies. You can choose not to receive any more emails at any time.

If you choose to register for third-party services, we may need to send some information that you have provided us to the service provider, possibly including your email address.

Event Registration

Our site may include forms that you fill out to register for our newsletter, request information, or register for an event. Completing and sending Sapphire Ventures such order form may include the transfer of your data to third parties involved in executing the transaction.

Sharing Your Personal Data

Any data and information that you volunteer or that is otherwise collected on our web site may be sent electronically to a server in another country. Companies in the Sapphire Ventures Group may use the information internationally in connection with processing your inquiries. We do not sell or rent your personal data to third parties for marketing purposes.

We may collect and possibly share personal data and any other additional information available to us in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Sapphire Ventures’ terms of use, or as otherwise required by law.

While visiting Sapphire Ventures’ website you may be directed to content or functionality that is hosted by a third-party supplier, not on www.sapphireventures.com. Most often, this is done to host special events. When information is collected on behalf of Sapphire Ventures exclusively, the Sapphire Ventures privacy statement will be referenced on the site and will govern how information is used. For other, non-Sapphire Ventures sites, the site’s owner’s privacy policy will be referenced.

Security of Your Personal Data

Sapphire Ventures is committed to protecting the personal data you share with us. Sapphire Ventures uses a combination of industry-standard security technologies, procedures, and organizational measures to help protect your personal data from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Sapphire Ventures supports online security using secure server technology because we want your data to be safe. There are state-of-the-art security arrangements and facilities on Sapphire Ventures sites to prevent abuse. We bind our employees to observe your privacy and confidentiality rights.

Links to Other Sites

This site may contain links to other sites. Sapphire Ventures is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites outside the Sapphire Ventures Group of companies.

Data Retention

Sapphire Ventures will not retain your personal data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations. If you have any other questions about this privacy statement, our use of your data, or if you wish to inspect the information we hold about you, please contact: info@sapphireventures.com
