PRIVACY POLICY

Amethyst Research's policy is to respect and protect the privacy of our users. This policy statement tells you how we collect information from you and how we use it.

To access our services, we request that you register with VentWorld.com. Any information we gather during registration is for editorial and feedback purposes (to customize content and advertising to deliver a better experience for our users), or for any purposes specifically described when the information is collected. It also may be used to send special announcements and notifications of products or services that might be of interest to you. This personally identifiable information is not disclosed to anyone except when we believe in good faith that the law requires it or to protect the rights and property of Ventworld.com and Amethyst Research. We do disclose aggregate user information to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties.

An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you're surfing the Web. Web servers automatically identify your computer by its IP address. Amethyst Research collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration, to report aggregate information to our advertisers, and to audit the use of our site. We do not normally link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable, which means that a user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. We can and will use IP addresses to identify a user when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with our house rules or terms of service or to protect our service, site, customers or others.

What are cookies? Cookies are pieces of information that a Web site transfers to an individual's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies make Web-surfing easier for you by saving your preferences while you're at our site. The use of cookies is an industry standard -- you'll find them at most major Web sites. By showing how and when guests use a site, cookies help us see which areas are popular and which are not. Many improvements and updates to the site are based on such data as total number of visitors and pages viewed. This information is most easily tracked with cookies. We use the information from cookies to provide services better tailored to our users needs by specifying unique preferences and tracking user trends and patterns. This helps us better understand and improve areas of the VentWorld.com service that our users find valuable. While both of these activities depend on the use of a "cookie," visitors to VentWorld.com always have the option of disabling cookies via their browser preferences. You may occasionally get cookies from our advertisers. Amethyst Research does not control these cookies. The use of advertising cookies sent by third-party servers is standard in the Internet industry."

Users should be aware that there are links to other sites from VentWorld.com that take you outside our service, including links from advertisers, sponsors and partners. These other sites may send their own cookies to users, collect data or solicit personal information. While Amethyst Research strives to protect its user's personal information and privacy, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you disclose online and you do so at your own risk.

By using this site, you signify your assent to Amethyst Research's Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our sites. Your continued use of Amethyst Research's sites following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes.
