Toronto Venture Group Privacy Policy

When you provide us with information through TVG.org or Venturefair.com (the "Site"), we respect your privacy. It is important for you to understand what information we collect about you when you register for a TVG event and what we do with that information. Your visit to the online registration portion of our Site is subject to this Privacy Policy. Please note that this Privacy Policy governs only information provided to TVG.org and communications from TVG.org. It does not govern any other information or communications that may reference the Toronto Venture Group or TVG.


1. Collection of Personally Identifiable Information by the Toronto Venture Group

The only information we collect about you is the information you provide to us through registration for one of our events or through membership.  When you register for an event, you will be required to fill in certain information including your Contact Name, Mailing Address with City and Province or State, a telephone number and your email address. In order to pay for your registration online, you will be asked for a credit card number, cardholder’s name and the credit card expiry date.  We do not maintain the credit card information.  It is only used to process your registration at the time you register.   If you prefer not to pay for your registration online using a credit card, arrangements may be made with our offices by calling 416-673-8480. If you would prefer that we not collect any personally identifiable information from you in addition to the minimum requirements to register online, please do not provide us with any such information.

When you submit your personally identifiable information on the Site, you are giving your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

2. Use of Personally Identifiable Information by TVG.org and Venturefair.com

If you choose to register or become a member using the Toronto Venture Group online registration process or at other times when you submit personally identifiable information, the information you provide may be used by the Toronto Venture Group to create and deliver to you our email communications containing upcoming event or membership information. If you prefer not to receive such communication, please reply to the email indicating that you wish to have your information removed from our database.



3. No Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information for Third Party Marketing

The Toronto Venture Group does not disclose or provide its database information to third parties.  

4. Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information

4.1. Fraud Protection and Legal Compliance

We may disclose any information, including personally identifiable information, we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. We may also provide information to third parties for the sole purpose of credit fraud protection, credit collection and/or risk reduction.

4.2. Service Providers

From time to time, the Toronto Venture Group may retain the services of other companies and individuals to perform functions consistent with our Privacy Policy on our behalf. Examples include online registration companies, webhosting companies, webmaster services, credit card processing firms and email service providers. Such third party companies may be provided with access to demographic and/or personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not use such information for any other purpose.

5. Use of Demographic Information

We may use the demographic information you provide for the sole purpose of helping us better meet the needs of our members and non-member event participants in order to make their experiences more meaningful through the development of marketing plans by collecting and analyzing statistical information. We may collect, store or accumulate certain non-personally identifiable information concerning your use of the online registration portion of our site.

6. Children

Children are not part of our desired customer base and as such they may not register for any of our events or become members of the Toronto Venture Group.  However, they may browse the TVG and VentureFair website.  The TVG and VentureFair site is not designed for children and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any children.

7. Links to Other Websites

The TVG and VentureFair site may contain links to or from other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. This Privacy Policy applies only to the information we collect on the Site. We encourage you to read the privacy policies of other websites you link to from the Site or otherwise visit.

This Privacy Policy may be revised from time to time. If there is a change to our Privacy Policy, we will replace and post the revised policy here. We suggest that you periodically consult this Privacy Policy as the changes we make will be without notification to our members or non-member event participants. Please note that our rights to use your personally identifiable information will be based on the privacy policy in effect at the time the information is used.

10. Updating Your Information or Unsubscribe from our Email Communications

At this time, there is no ability for you to review, change and/or correct the personally identifiable information you provide us as we ask for you to fill in the information each time you register for one of our events, or once per year when you renew your membership.  If there is a change in your personal information that you would like to provide to us, please do so by emailing us at tvginfo@tvg.org. If you decide that you do not want to continue to receive communication from us by email and you want to be removed from our database, you can do this by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of the communication sent to you by email or by emailing us at tvginfo@tvg.org.
