Like most website operators, North Venture Partners collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. North Venture Partner’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how North Venture Partner’s visitors use its website. From time to time, North Venture Partners may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. North Venture Partners also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. North Venture Partners does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to North Venture Partner’s websites choose to interact with North Venture Partners in ways that require North Venture Partners to gather personally-identifying information.

In each case, North Venture Partners collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with North Venture Partners. North Venture Partners does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
North Venture Partners may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites.

North Venture Partners takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
