These terms of use are binding for the HelloPartnering and Biotechgate Digital Partnering software ("HelloPartnering").
1. Preface
By using HelloPartnering (including searching the database, sending and receiving meeting requests, visiting profiles, adding information, updating information as well as submitting any information to the portal) you agree to these Terms of Use.
2. Parties
HelloPartnering is property of and managed by Venture Valuation VV AG ("Venture Valuation"), Zurich, Switzerland. This agreement is made between the conference delegate ("User") and Venture Valuation. Using the HelloPartnering software is part of the conference attendee package for the specific conference the User has registered for or has been registered for.
3. Extent of Available Information
The amount of profile and additional information available in the software may vary from conference to conference. We try to encourage attendees to publish as much information as possible and also to import data from Biotechgate. Each profile can be updated by the organization itself. Venture Valuation or the conference organizers do not check the data before it is put online. Thus, Venture Valuation does not guarantee a minimum number of available company profiles, nor the completeness or accuracy of any profile published. Venture Valuation cannot be held liable for any information available or missing.
4. Quality of available information
Venture Valuation assumes no liability for any damage or loss arising from access to or use of the HelloPartnering software, website, and the information contained therein.
5. Use of information
The User of HelloPartnering agrees that any downloaded content will be used for internal purposes only. The use of data for external purposes including data harvesting will not be allowed. Furthermore, no data can be made available by the User to third parties without prior permission from Venture Valuation. No part of this website may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronically, mechanically, by photocopying, by recording or otherwise.
6. Extent of use
HelloPartnering software is intended for reasonable usage. The access rights do not constitute the right to systematically download all available information specifically delegates and company information. Venture Valuation has the right to block or cancel an account if Venture Valuations deems that a subscriber has exceeded the limit of normal usage. Any use of automated data collecting software is strictly prohibited. The use of the data beyond the conference is not allowed. The User understands that Venture valuation has tools in place to detect such miss-use of data.
7. Expired Use
The use of the HelloPartnering Software will be for a defined period before the specific conference and during the conference. Based on the agreement between Venture Valuation and the conference organizer, the software may be made available for up to 3 months after the conference. However, Venture Valuation does not provide any guarantee that the software is available beyond the conference itself.
8. Limitation of Liability
In no event shall Venture Valuation be liable for damages resulting from loss of data or use of the HelloPartnering, or for any incidental, indirect, punitive, or consequential damages in connection with this agreement or in connection with any products or services provided. Venture Valuation shall use its best efforts to provide the highest availability of services. However, Venture Valuation is dependent on external parties and cannot provide any guarantee as to availability or accuracy. Venture Valuation reserves the right to change external parties and information providers any time.
9. Copyright

All software used on this site is the property of Venture Valuation or its software suppliers and protected by international copyright laws.
10. License and Site Access
Venture Valuation grants the User a limited license to access and make personal use of this site but not to download (other than page caching) or modify it, or any portion of it, except with express written consent of Venture Valuation. This site or any portion of this site may not be reproduced, duplicated, copied, sold, resold, visited, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose without express written consent from Venture Valuation.

11. Use of delegate's company for reference purposes
Unless otherwise stated in the proposal, Venture Valuation has the right to use the company name and logo of users as a reference on its websites, in email marketing campaigns, on printed materials or in social media. If a client does not agree to this, the client must inform Venture Valuation in writing. Venture Valuation will then remove the logo and company name from all its websites within 14 days and will not use them in any future campaigns and printed material.
12. Digital Partnering & virtual one-on-one meetings
For events like Biotechgate Digital Partnering, for which virtual or hybrid participation is possible, Venture Valuation uses external software providers such as Zoom to allow participants to meet via teleconference. While we carefully chose our software partners and implement solutions to protect the privacy of all participants, we are also dependent on the implemented security features of these partners and cannot guarantee that all meetings are fully private and confidential. These digital meetings are arranged on external servers in the cloud. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information appropriate to the level of security required, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. By participating in the virtual meetings offered through our system, you also agree to the Terms of Use of the relevant external software providers, such as Zoom. We recommend using your own, secure means of communication for meetings where confidential information is exchanged.
13. Exclusion of users
Venture Valuation reserves the right to exclude users from any current or future event using the HelloPartnering system, to close their account and to exclude them from future conferences. Specific reasons for exclusion include but are not limited to: publishing false or misleading information, pursuing fraudulent intentions, using a false identity or otherwise violating good faith or other good intentions.
14. Applicable Law
By visiting HelloPartnering or a related portal, the User agrees that the laws of Switzerland, without regard to principles of conflict of laws, will govern these Conditions of Use and any dispute of any sort that might arise between the User and Venture Valuation or its affiliates.
15. Site Policies, Modification, and Severability
Venture Valuation reserves the right to make changes to its site, policies, and these Terms of Use at any time. If any of these conditions shall be deemed invalid, void, or for any reason unenforceable, that condition shall be deemed severable and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining conditions.
16. Changes to Terms of Use
If Venture Valuation decides or needs to change these Terms of Use, it will post those changes in this Terms of Use and other places it deems appropriate. Venture Valuation reserves the right to revise, amend, or modify these Terms of Use, and any other policies and agreements with the User at any time and in any manner, so the User is advised to review this document frequently. If Venture Valuation makes material changes to these Terms of Use, it will notify the User here or by means of a notice on our homepage.
