2. Information collection
All information you submit during your subscription process is kept for internal purposes only. Depending on your subscription model, you may have the possibility to link subscriptions to each other (within a company or an organization) in order to share notes among several subscribers. In this case notes which do not have the availability status "Available for viewing only on my account" are also available to all linked subscribers.
By registering and submitting your information to Biotechgate you agree that we may contact you by post, telephone, e-mail or fax to keep you updated on developments related to your subscriptions. You have the possibility to unsubscribe ("opt-out") for any of these information services. E-mails however which are based on a specific action of the user (such as subscribing, cancelation, recurring payments etc.) are sent automatically and cannot be turned off. By using any of our services you agree that these automatically generated e-mails will be sent to you.
Information is also collected about the use of any page of the Biotechgate portal. Several statistics tools track visits (incl. page views, IP address, time of visit etc.) of all users (also see chapter about "Google Analytics" further down on this page). For logged-in users (registered users who have a Biotechgate account) visits to profiles are tracked.
Venture Valuation reserves the right to exclude or otherwise edit any information submitted to its website.
On Biotechgate you have the possibility to publish your own information (such as an organization's profile, information about a licensing deal, an event). For any information that is submitted to us, we also track the IP address of the user (which is used for security reasons and internal purposes only).
Profiles are usually reviewed by an editor before they are publicly available on the website. Venture Valuation reserves the right to exclude or otherwise edit any information submitted to its website. Also Venture Valuation reserves the right to complete a profile or attach additional information to it which is provided by a news feed or a cooperation partner (e.g. job ads, company news etc.). This additional information may be attached automatically to the profiles. While Venture Valuation shall exert its best effort to match the right attachment with the right profile, it cannot be guaranteed that any attached information is linked to the right profile. In this case Venture Valuation shall not be liable for any problems that might arise but will remove incorrect attachments within 48 hours of notification.
By using any of our services you agree that some automatically generated e-mails (such as listing-request responses, activation confirmations etc.) will be sent to you automatically.
Profiles can be reviewed, edited, updated, completed or deleted by the Biotechgate team in Zurich, the editing Team of VV Data Processing (I) Pvt. Ltd. in India (a joint venture company and partner of Venture Valuation) as well as any cooperation partner for a specific region.
