2. PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTION AND USE 

Our primary goals in collecting Personal Information are for the legitimate business purpose of providing you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience, to send you information upon your request, and, if appropriate, to collaborate with you as a client.

2.2 Personal Information

If you complete the “Contact Us” inquiry form on the Website, we will request information about you, including, but not limited to, your name, phone number, and email address (together “Personal Information”).  We seek such information primarily for the legitimate business purpose of communicating with you about our service offerings.  In addition, we may use such information for the legitimate business purposes of improving our marketing and promotional efforts, analyzing Website usage, improving our content and service offerings, and customizing our Website’s content, layout and services.

We use 3rd party service providers to facilitate and host the Website and overall operation, and to perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and email, text messages, analyzing data, and providing customer service.  These third parties may have access to your Personal Information as needed to perform their functions, but they may not use it for any other purpose.  Alchemy Ventures requires that these 3rd party service providers agree to keep all Personal Information shared with them confidential and secure and to only use your Personal Information to perform their obligations to Alchemy Ventures.
