SIGN UP WITH EMAIL
We collect information in a few different ways:
Information you voluntarily provide - When you sign up to the Site and start using our Tools, you voluntarily give us certain information. This can include your name, profile photo, gender, demographic information, website address and your email address, that can be used to contact or identify you. Once you have an account, this can also include your VENNs, User Content, comments, Loves and any other information you upload to the Site, share on the Site or choose to give us.
These days, whenever you use a website, mobile application, or other internet service, there’s certain information that almost always gets created and recorded automatically. The same is true when you use our Tools. Here are some of the types of information we collect:
We may allow third-parties, including Our authorized service providers, advertising companies, and ad networks, to display advertisements on the Site. These companies may use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to collect information about users who view or interact with their advertisements. Unless expressly stated otherwise, the Site does not provide any personal information to these third parties. This information allows them to deliver targeted advertisements and gauge their effectiveness. For Example:
We use the information we collect to provide our Tools to you and make them better, develop new products, and protect VENNDY and our users. If you are a VENNDY user, We may use information that We collect about you to:
The information we collect may be “personally identifiable” (meaning it can be used to specifically identify you as a unique person) or “non-personally identifiable” (meaning it can’t be used to specifically identify you). We use both types of information, and combinations of both types, as described above. We may use or store information wherever VENNDY does business, including countries outside your own.
We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personal information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users (such as, for example, services providing customer service, services supporting the Site’s functionality or our email service provider, see below), so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety.
Please be advised that anyone can see on the Site the Items and notes you write as well the Stories you create, and part of the profile information you give us (such as: name, country, website and since when you have become a member of VENNDY). We may also make this public information available through what are called “APIs” (basically a technical way to share information quickly). For example, a partner might use a VENNDY API to study what their most popular VENNs are or how their VENNs are being shared. The other limited instances where we may share your personal information include:
We may also share aggregated or non-personally identifiable information with our partners, advertisers, or others. For example, we may tell an advertiser on VENNDY how many people shared an Items that was VENNed on VENNDY, or the percentage of people who click on an Item, redirecting them to its origin after viewing it.
We use MailChimp and Convert Kit to manage our email marketing subscriber list and to send emails to our subscribers. They are both third-party providers, which may process your data using industry standard technologies to help VENNDY monitor and improve our newsletter. You can find their respective privacy policies on their sites.
You can unsubscribe from VENNDY’s newsletter by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided at the end of each newsletter. You can also deactivate your account from your Profile Settings on your VENNDY account.
Our goal is to give you the highest level of control over your web experience. You can choose not to provide Us with certain information, as indicated in the sign-up form. If you are a registered member and have a VENNDY account, many of the choices you have on VENNDY are built directly into the Tools or your account settings. At this beta stage we are still working to provide you with maximum flexibility to choose your preferable settings. For the time being, please note that the information you share on My VENNDY is all public. That include your stories, items, followers, loves and the VENNRs you are following (let's call this your public information). However, your information on Wish List, Style Chart, Archive and Settings are all private and accessible only by you (this would be your private area).
By accessing your account Settings you can:
You may have choices available to you through the device or software you use to access VENNDY. For example:
To learn more about these choices, please see the information provided by the device or software provider.
We keep your information only so long as we need it to provide VENNDY to you and fulfill the purposes described in this policy. When we no longer need to use your information and there is no need for us to keep it to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, we’ll either remove it from our systems or depersonalize it so that we can't identify you.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We take appropriate and reasonable technical measures to protect personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction, taking into account the risks involved in the processing and the nature of the personal information.
VENNDY’s accounts require a username and password to log in. Members must keep their username and password secure, and never disclose it to a third party. To protect your privacy, account passwords are hashed, which means we cannot see your password. We cannot resend forgotten passwords either. We will only provide you with instructions on how to reset your password in case needed.
Unfortunately, no method of transmission over the internet is completely secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
You may use VENNDY’s tools only if you are 18 years of age or older. If you are based in the EEA you may only use VENNDY if you are over the age at which you can provide consent to data processing under the laws of your country or if verifiable parental consent for your use of VENNDY has been provided to us. If you learn that your minor child has provided us with personal information without your consent, please contact us here.
You have options in relation to the information that we have about you described below. To exercise these options, please contact us. If you're an EEA your individual rights include:
You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by contacting us by email and we will do our best to address them as soon as possible and no later than within 30 days.

Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, VENNDY uses "cookies" to collect information.
Some of third parties such as for example Google Analytics and Google AdSense collect statistics in an anonymized and aggregated form and may not require the consent of the user or may be managed directly by us without the help of third parties.
In addition to what is specified in these privacy policies, the user can manage preferences for cookies directly from within their own browser and prevent – for example – third parties from installing cookies.
Through browser preferences, it is also possible to delete cookies installed in the past, including the cookies that may have saved the initial consent for the installation of cookies by VENNDY.
Users can, for example, find information about how to manage cookies in the most commonly used browsers (e.g. Google Chrome, Apple Safari, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox) on the website of the browser of choice.
