Privacy Policy

Welcome to www.grovevc.com (together with its subdomains and Content, the “Site”). Your privacy is important to us. To better protect your privacy, we provide this privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) explaining the online information practices of Grove Ventures Capital and its affiliates ("Grove", "we", "our" or "us") and the choices you can make about the way we collect and use your information.

1. Consent and Modification.

By using this Site, you consent to the terms of our Privacy Policy and to Grove’s processing of Personal Information (as defined below) for the purposes set forth herein. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, please do not use our Site. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to modify this Privacy Policy at any time, which modification will be effective 5 days following the posting of the modification to the Site, and will apply to causes of action arising after the effective date of the change. We will inform you regarding such modifications by posting such latest changes on the Site. You should continue checking the Site for changes. Your continued use of this Site 5 days following the posting of changes to this Privacy Policy, will mean you accept those changes.

2. Introduction.

We recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of any Personal Information you share with us. We collect two general types of information from Site users:  (1) non-personal information concerning the use of the Site and (2) personal information that identifies or can be used to identify or contact an individual. Non-Personal Information: As is the case with many Web sites, our servers automatically collect your browser type and IP address when you visit the Site.  In addition, we may use standard tracking technologies (e.g., cookies, local shared objects, and pixel tags) and website analytics tools to monitor and better understand user behavior on the Site.  Data captured may include, for example, the referring page that linked you to the Site, the country from which you are conducting your browsing session, the next Web site you visit when you leave the Site, and any search terms you have entered on the Site or a referral site. Such data does not identify you personally. The personal information we collect is limited to information you submit to us.  For example, we may collect your e-mail address or other information you provide when you contact us through the Site.  We may also collect names, home addresses, or other types of personal information from our investors and business partners to help verify that they are authorized to access the pages of our website dedicated to them, if any such pages exist.

3. The Way We Use Personal Information.

We consider the personal information that we receive to be confidential.  We will not use your personal information without your consent, except in accordance with this policy.  If you submit your e-mail address or other personal information to us via the Site, we will use this information only to the extent necessary to respond to your request(s).  We use the non-personal information collected about Site visits, including the pages you view, information you search for, and the average time spent on our Site, in the aggregate to better understand our audience and increase the functionality and user-friendliness of our Site.  Aggregate information is anonymous.

4. Sharing with Third Parties.

We generally do not share personal information collected through the Site.  We may, however, share your personal information (i) with trusted third parties who work with us and/or provide services to us, (ii) as required by law and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or those of third parties, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or comply with a court order or other legal process, or (iii) in connection with a corporate change including a merger, acquisition or sale of assets.  In addition, the third parties that support our website analytics tools may be able to view aggregate Site usage information that we obtain.

5. Security.

While we endeavor to protect the security and integrity of Personal Information in our care, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.

6. Links to Third-Party Web Sites.

Our Site may contain links, banners, widgets or advertisements that lead to other Web sites, including personal blogs written or edited by members of our staff.  We are not responsible for these other sites, and so their privacy policies (not this Policy) will govern the collection and use of your information on them.  We encourage you to read the privacy statements of such Web sites to understand how your information is treated.

7. Contact Us.

We welcome your questions and comments about privacy. Please feel free to contact us by sending an e-mail to contact@grovevc.com
