Parts of the following paragraphs refer only to one or the other of these areas (indicated in the title of the policy).

2. Information collection
HelloPartnering users
All information you submit during your registration process (Conference registration) as well as information in your personal profile will be made available to other conference participants. We will also forward this personal information to the conference organizer. Furthermore, we will save your personal information on our server to be able to match you with your company for future conferences.
By registering and submitting your information to HelloPartnering you agree that we may contact you by post, telephone, e-mail or fax to keep you updated on developments regarding HelloPartnering software and any Biotechgate and Venture Valuation related information including, but not limited to the monthly newsletter of Venture Valuation.

E-mails however which are based on a specific action of the user (specifically related to the HelloPartnering) are sent automatically and cannot be turned off. By using any of our services you agree that these automatically generated e-mails will be sent to you.
Information is also collected about the use of any page of the HelloPartnering portal. Several statistics tools track visits (incl. page views, IP address, time of visit etc.) of all users (also see chapter about "Google Analytics" further down on this page). Venture Valuation reserves the right to exclude or otherwise edit any information submitted to its website.

HelloPartnering profiles
On HelloPartnering you are encouraged to publish your company information (such as an organization's profile, information about a licensing deal, financing rounds, etc.) which is then provided to other conference attendees. They will have the opportunity to send you meeting requests based on your company and/or personal profile.
In general we leave profiles as they are, but they might be reviewed by an editor. Venture Valuation reserves the right to exclude or otherwise edit any information submitted to HelloPartnering we do not deem appropriate. In addition, Venture Valuation reserves the right to complete a profile or attach additional information to it which is provided by a news feed or a cooperation partner (e.g. clinical trial information or company news etc.). This additional information may also be attached automatically to the profiles. While Venture Valuation shall exert its best effort to match the right attachment with the right profile, it cannot be guaranteed that any attached information is linked to the right profile. In this case Venture Valuation shall not be liable for any problems that might arise but will remove incorrect attachments within 48 hours of notification.
