We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target. We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers’ wishes by displaying their advertisements to that target audience.

Your rights

In accordance with the Data Protection Act of 6 January 1978, reinforced and supple­mented by the GDPR (General Data Protection regulation) entered into force on 25 May 2018, you have at any time a right of access, recti­fic­ation, oppos­ition, erasure and portab­ility of all of your personal data by writing, by mail and justi­fying your identity, to syndicate@venture-crew.com

You have the right to access information that is held about you. To protect your privacy and security, we’ll take reasonable steps to verify your identity before providing copies of any relevant materials.

You may be entitled to ask us:

for a copy of your information;

to correct or delete your information;

to restrict or stop the processing of the information;

to transfer certain information to other organisations; and

where we have asked for your consent to process your data, to withdraw this consent.

These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your data. In some instances, this may mean that we are able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent.

Where we require information to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory: if such information is not provided, then we will not be able to meet obligations placed on us or manage your transactions on Our Site. In all other cases, provision of requested information is optional.

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your information and resolve any complaints you may have. We encourage you to come to us in the first instance but you are entitled to complain directly to the relevant data protection authority.

How long we retain your information

We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements, which in some cases involving the collection and processing of financial data may require a retention period of 7 years (or longer if required by law).
