How Do We Collect Your Data?
MicroVest does not collect personal information, such as name or email addresses through our website.
MicroVest does utilize Pardot, a marketing automation tool from Salesforce to help us improve our email and webservices, as well as optimize our website content. The data tracked through Pardot helps us find out what topics you are interested in by tracking which links you click on, which pages you visit, and how much time is spent on those pages, for example.
Pardot utilizes two types of cookies to track activity: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary and are only stored on your computer when browsing the website. As soon as the browsing session ends, the cookie disappears. Session cookies are used to remember your browsing behavior during the session, e.g., remembering choices made on a previous page. Persistent cookies will stay on your device even after the browsing session has ended. A persistent cookie will remain on the device for a set period of time and will be activated every time you revisit www.microvestfund.com.
In addition to Pardot cookies, MicroVestfund.com utilizes first-party cookies from Google Analytics in order to help us evaluate and improve the activity on our website. To learn more about Google Analytics and the cookies collected, please click here.

Disclosing personal information
Our operations and maintenance contractors sometimes have limited access to your Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to us, subject to applicable confidentiality and data protection obligations. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide us with technology, services, and/or content related to better operation and maintenance of our website, database, and marketing automation service. Access to your personal information by these contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the contractor to perform its limited function for us.

We will not supply your personal information to any third party for their or any other third party’s direct marketing.
How we protect your personal data
Management of information over the internet is inherently insecure. We cannot guarantee the security of our systems, nor can we guarantee that the information we manage will not be intercepted over the Internet. We do, however, maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the data we maintain, which we have collected through direct means, through the site against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.
Retention of personal data
We retain information for as long as may be necessary to provide continuous service to you or to meet any of our contractual obligations, and longer where required by law.
We may update this policy from time to time by publishing a new version on our website. You should check this page occasionally to ensure you understand any changes to this policy.
Third party websites
Our website includes hyperlinks to, and details of, third party websites. We have no control over, and are not responsible for, the privacy policies and practices of third parties.
Access and control of personal data
If we have a personal record of you in Salesforce which was obtained by direct means, you may request access to, correction or deletion of your personal information held by MicroVest. We will consider any such request seriously and promptly, although we may choose not to delete information where it is necessary for compliance with our legal obligations, or we otherwise have a substantial need to retain the data. You may also have rights to restrict or to object to processing of your data and to portability of your data to other service providers.
