INFORMATION COLLECTED ABOUT YOU AND OUR USE OF SUCH INFORMATION
VEN-UE collects information about you when you create an account, make purchases, participate in VEN-UE promotions, transmit information to us through VEN-UE, and otherwise use VEN-UE. By doing any of the foregoing, you agree to this policy. If you do not agree with the terms of this policy, please do not engage in any of these activities.
REGISTRATION INFORMATION AND OTHER VOLUNTARILY-PROVIDED INFORMATION
In general, you may visit VEN-UE without revealing any personal information other than technology-related information described in the “Website Information” section below. However, certain sections and features of VEN-UE are only available to users with VEN-UE accounts, who must log in to VEN-UE using unique access credentials. We may permit a user to log in to our service using credentials on selected third-party services and from other methods that we may allow from time to time.
If you create a VEN-UE account or log in to VEN-UE using a registration process made available by VEN-UE, we collect the registration information you provide to us in such process. We may indicate that some fields are required, while others are optional.
By logging in to VEN-UE using a third-party service, you permit us to connect to such third party and to access and use all information related to your account with such third party that is made available to us by the third party.
VEN-UE Services processes all payments for events, instructions, and access to VODs. Payment for all purchases occurs during the checkout process. When a user makes a purchase on VEN-UE, the purchase price funds are transferred from the user to VEN-UE’s selected payment service. A transaction is deemed complete upon payment to VEN-UE and completion of the checkout process.
We also collect and store any other personal information and other data you have provided to us through VEN-UE, by email or otherwise. For example, if you are an Artist, you may upload photos using our photo upload tools, provide us with biographical and tour information, or create links to your artist website. If you upload photos, we collect such photos as well as any data you provide in connection with those photos. If you provide us with biographical or tour information, we collect that information. If you upload songs or videos, we collect such songs and videos and any related data you provide to us. If you are a user, you may purchase tickets for events and VODs. If you create a Fan account, we request your name, email address, location, and other optional information.
We use the information we obtain about you from third-party services, or that you otherwise provide to us, to respond to any inquiries you may submit to us, to track and monitor usage of VEN-UE, and to communicate with you about your account and your use of VEN-UE. In addition, we may use this information to send you periodic publications associated with VEN-UE, unless you inform us that you opt out from receiving such communications via email. We also use this information to operate VEN-UE and, along with other information we collect about you, for targeted advertising and other marketing purposes.
Our service collects and stores information that is generated automatically as you use VEN-UE. This information is collected across the entire VEN-UE. To collect this information, we may use standard log files, “clear gifs,” also known as web beacons, and cookies. For example, VEN-UE employs browser cookies to store users’ preferences and record session information. This technology allows for the storage of user preferences, user ID and password, if applicable, and remembers you when you take action on VEN-UE. You can turn off the “cookie” function through most standard browsers; however, the majority of the features on VEN-UE may not function properly, including but not limited to, the login function, if the ability to accept cookies is disabled.
In addition, when you use VEN-UE, our system automatically collects certain information. For example, when you visit our website or other portions of our service, our system automatically collects information such as your web or content request, your other actions on VEN-UE (e.g., following an Artist), Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, platform type, number of clicks, landing pages, pages viewed and the order of these page views, the amount of time spent on particular pages, the date and time of your request, and the unique identity of your browser. This information is used to analyze trends, administer VEN-UE, improve the design of VEN-UE, track user movement, customize certain content or features on VEN-UE, and otherwise enhance the services we provide. Additionally, we may retain, use, and disclose certain of this information in a manner combined with your email address or other personal information that we maintain about you. If we do so, we will treat any such information that is combined with personal information in accordance with the provisions of this policy pertaining to our use and disclosure of personal information.
For users that place transactions on VEN-UE, we collect credit card or other payment information (such as the credit card number and expiration date, verification code (CVV code), and the user’s name, billing address, email address, and telephone number).
We may retain any data you provide to us in an email or other inquiry, to track the types of questions we receive, analyze trends, administer the websites and services we offer, improve the design of our websites and services we offer, track user movement, and otherwise enhance the services we provide.

We may receive information about you, including personal information, from third parties. For example, artists may provide us with lists of their fans so they can use VEN-UE, such as marketing or promotional services. We may also receive demographic and behavioral information about you from third parties. When we receive this information, we may combine this information with other personal information we maintain about you. The provisions of this policy will govern our handling of any combined information that we maintain in personally identifiable format.
In some instances, third parties provide us with information, including personal information, in connection with services that we may provide to them. We will process and disclose such information as they direct us. In these instances, the information is not ours, and we will comply with the directions of the third party. This policy does not reflect the privacy practices of these third parties and we are not responsible for their privacy policies or practices. We are not obligated to review, comment upon, or monitor their privacy policies or their compliance with their respective privacy policies, nor are we obligated to review their instructions to determine whether the instructions are in compliance or conflict with the terms of their published privacy policies.

We may provide your personal information to third parties for their use in performing internal business functions (e.g., payment processing, data analysis, email transmission, or data hosting) on our behalf. Some third-party service providers may also collect information, including personal information, on VEN-UE on our behalf. In our agreements with these third-party service providers, we require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality, security, and integrity of such personal information and to use it only for the purpose of providing their services to us.
We will comply with any subpoenas, court orders or other legal processes for any of the information about you in our possession, and we may use such information to establish or exercise our legal rights, or to defend against legal claims.
