Privacy Policy

Your privacy is critically important to us. At the Entrepreneur Fund we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it.
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop our products, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our products/services, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what’s visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

It is our policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, the Entrepreneur Fund collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use our website.

The Entrepreneur Fund also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged-in users and for users leaving comments on or sending inquiries via EntrepreneurFund.org. The Entrepreneur Fund only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to the Entrepreneur Fund’s website choose to interact with the Entrepreneur Fund in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who engage in transactions with the Entrepreneur Fund are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Entrepreneur Fund. The Entrepreneur Fund 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.

Aggregated Statistics

The Entrepreneur Fund may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the Entrepreneur Fund does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

The Entrepreneur Fund discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Entrepreneur Fund’s behalf or to provide services available at our website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Entrepreneur Fund’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Entrepreneur Fund will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, the Entrepreneur Fund discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when the Entrepreneur Fund believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Entrepreneur Fund, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Entrepreneur Fund website and have supplied your email address, the Entrepreneur Fund may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with the Entrepreneur Fund and our programs, offerings, services and products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. The Entrepreneur Fund takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Cookies

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. The Entrepreneur Fund uses cookies to help identify and track visitors, their usage of our website, and their website access preferences. Visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using the Entrepreneur Fund’s website, with the drawback that certain features of the websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.

Business Transfers

If the Entrepreneur Fund, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that the Entrepreneur Fund goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of the Entrepreneur Fund may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, the Entrepreneur Fund may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and at the Entrepreneur Fund’s sole discretion. The Entrepreneur Fund encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have an account with the Entrepreneur Fund, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes. Your continued use of this site after any change in this Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.
