COLLECTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

As a visitor to our website, you can engage in most activities without directly providing any personal information.

However, if you choose to use our online contact form, you will be asked to provide your name and a valid email address and telephone number.

In common with most websites, when you use our website, Venomtech or third parties may also collect certain information about your computer to facilitate your use of the site and its services. For example, browser type, operating system, and the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer. We use these to facilitate and track your use of the site and its services. Via third parties, Venomtech also uses such information to measure traffic patterns on the site.                                                                                          To better understand the needs of our visitors, we may occasionally match such information with your personal information.

Venomtech may on occasion supplement the personal information you submit with information from third-party sources, such as LinkedIn, to make it more likely that any marketing communications we send will be relevant and of interest to you.
