In each case, Nova Ventures collects such information only insofar as is necessary or useful to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction. Nova Ventures 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.

In no event shall Nova Ventures be limited in, or restricted from, the pursuit of any opportunities, either alone or with third parties, including any of its affiliated funds.
Protection of Personally-Identifying Information
Nova Ventures may disclose potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to those of its employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that need to know that information. Some of those employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations may be located outside of a visitor’s home country; by using Nova Ventures’ website, each visitor consents to the transfer of such information to them. Nova Ventures will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Nova Ventures also discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information in response to a subpoena, court order, or other governmental request, or when Nova Ventures believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Nova Ventures, its personnel, third parties, or the public at large. Nova Ventures takes reasonable measures to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information, but cannot guarantee complete security.
If Nova Ventures, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Nova Ventures goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. Each visitor acknowledges that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Nova Ventures may continue to use personally-identifying information as set forth in this policy.
