Privacy & Cookies
This policy sets out how Venture Marketing Group Ltd and third parties could use information that you supply to us. Please read the following information carefully before submitting information or using this site.
Any information about you, which you give to us, may be used for publication (where you provide details for inclusion in our directories or catalogues and on our websites) and also to supply you with information about our products or services in the form of direct marketing activity by phone, fax or post. This information may also be made available to third parties on a list lease or list rental basis for the purpose of direct marketing.
We also reserve the right to disclose details about you to authorised law enforcement agencies where we are asked to do so.
If at any time you no longer wish to (i) receive anything from Venture Marketing Group Ltd or (ii) to have your data made available to third parties, please write to the Data Protection Co-ordinator, Venture Marketing Group, 2-4 St Georges Road, Wimbledon, London, SW19 4DP or email firstname.lastname@example.org
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term "cookies" in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Certain cookies contain personal information - for example, if you click to "remember me" when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won't collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user's general location.
Please note: If you do disable our cookies you may find that certain sections of our website do not work. For example, you may have difficulties logging in, staying logged in or viewing articles.
What sort of cookies does this site use?
Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:
1. Essential cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription only pages. If a subscriber opts to disable these cookies, the user will not be able to access all of the content that a subscription entitles them to. These cookies don't need consent.
2. Performance Cookies
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website.
3. Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences - such as if you ask us to save your username and/or password. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you access the site, and recall your customisation preferences.
We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or load a CV or buy tickets online.
4. Behaviourally Targeted Advertising Cookies
We do not tell our advertisers who you are.
Advertisers sometimes use their own cookies to provide you with targeted advertising. For example, advertisers may use a profile they have built on sites that you have previously visited to present you with more relevant advertisements during your visit to this particular website.
We believe that it is useful to our users to see advertisements that are more relevant to their interests. If you are based in the European Union and would like to learn more about how advertisers use these types of cookies or to choose not to receive them, please visit www.youronlinechoices.eu
If you are based in the United States and would like to learn more, please visit www.aboutads.info/choices/
We also use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the four categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright policy.
Can a website user block cookies?
As we've explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of our websites.
Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of our website do not work properly
