|The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in force since May 25, 2018. At VC-A, we know that both your data privacy and your time are important and have therefore updated our VC-A M&A Suite to comply with the new GDPR.
This policy describes what information we collect to operate VC-A. It also provides information about how we store, transfer, use and delete that information, and what choices you have with respect to the information.
This policy applies to the VC-A M&A Suite, including the website as well as other interactions you may have with VC-A.
Data collection, processing and storage
VC-A is a corporate advisory firm. We provide M&A, fundraising and strategy consulting services. We are a business to business (B2B) organisation and will use your personal data only to provide professional services.
We merely collect contact data to enable us to reach out to the organisation you work with, or the ones that you could eventually introduce us to.
We need personal data to do our job, which consists of matching buyers with sellers, fundraisers with investors and job seekers with job openings.
We will never share personal data nor sell them to third-parties.
We will not use personal data to sell consumer products.
All data are stored in our VC-A M&A Suite, which is only accessible to VC-A Partners under a confidentiality agreement.
We process personal data differently depending on the type of Contact.
For VC-A Members
New VC-A Member’s data can be collected through our website using the Sign-Up form or introduced manually by one of our VC-A Partners.
Data introduced through our website are encrypted and secured by a thawte SSL123 Certificate
