Expectations of all aboard the Venture are very high. All are expected to follow the rules and regulations of both Venture and Bravo Fleet at all times. By joining Captain Perin's crew you affirm that you will write in a proper and adequate manner. Members who choose to make ultra short posts, post very infrequently, or post posts with overly sexual content will be removed immediately, and by continuing, you agree to this. It should be noted, that as the Venture is set in a time of peace, but there may be cases of extreme violence written and applicants should be aware of this. As such, it is the judgement of Captain Perin that the Venture will accept no player under the age of 16, there will be violent content and all players should be prepared for this. Again, this is due to possible graphic content in our writer's posts. Any players found to be under the age of 16 will be immediately removed without question and banned from the Ship. By agreeing to these terms, you are also saying that you are at least 16.

As a member of the crew and therefore Bravo Fleet, all men and women aboard the ship are required to adhere to the Fleet Constitution and By-Laws which can be found on the Fleet InfoBase at:

Anyone who applies to join must be prepared to meet the minimum requirements of three posts a month.

The full description of the simm rules can be found at ( it is expected that anyone who has applied to join Venture has already read and understood these rules. By submitting an application you are also committing to abide by these rules.


Privacy Policy

The USS Venture ("Service" or "We") collects and uses personal information solely for the purpose of providing an online collaborative writing environment. Where feasible, We collect personal information only with the knowledge and consent of the individual concerned ("Individual"), and, if the Individual notifies us that they wish to revoke their consent, We will make a best effort to remove all personal information related to the Individual from our Service.

This Privacy Policy, along with our Cookie Policy, Do Not Track Policy, and Your California Privacy Rights page, define in full how the Service collects, manages and processes an Individual's personal information.

What information is collected?

"Required Member Information": When an Individual signs up for the Service (becoming a "Member"), We collect the Member's name, age, email address, language and timezone.

"Optional Member Information": We allow a Member, at their discretion, to provide additional contact information, a geographic location, interests and a biography.

"Access Logs": When an Individual visits the Service, We collect incidental personal information in the Service's logs including the Individual's IP address and user agent.

How is information collected?

Required Member Information and Optional Member Information are collected with an Individual's consent when the Individual signs up for the Service or edits their account within the Service. In order to participate in the Service, a Member must provide all Required Member Information. A Member may provide a pseudonym instead of their real name, if they do not wish to disclose their real name.

Access Logs are collected by our web server and web application when an Individual uses the Service.

Why is information collected?

Required Member Information is collected in order to allow a Member to participate in the Service. A Member's name, email address and timezone are listed on their profile. A Member's email address will also be used to contact the Member and to send the Member story posts and other content directly related to the Service. A Member's age is only used to confirm the Member meets the legal requirements to participate in this Service.

Optional Member Information is collected in order to allow a Member to share more details about themselves to other Members of the service.

Access Logs are collected for diagnosing technical problems with our Service. In rare situations, We may also use Access Logs to ban an Individual found to be acting inappropriately with the Service, including, but not limited to, violating the rules of the Service, placing an undue burden on the Service or violating applicable laws ("Inappropriate Use").

With whom is information shared?

A Member's name, email address, timezone and Optional Member Information are shared with other Members of the Service through the Member's user profile.

A Member's name, age, email address, timezone and Optional Member Information may also be shared with Bravo Fleet, the organization within which the Service belongs.

Access Logs are generally not shared, although they may in rare circumstances be shared with Bravo Fleet or the ("Host") to diagnose technical problems or when an Individual is reasonably believed to have committed Inappropriate Use of the Service.

The Service or the Host may share personal information with relevant law enforcement authorities as required to comply with applicable laws. The Service will notify the Individual, if permitted by applicable laws, when this occurs.

The Service will not share any personal information with any other parties without the Individual's consent.

How is information protected?

We protect all personal information using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification. We are committed to managing the Service in accordance with these principles in order to ensure that the confidentiality of personal information is protected and maintained.

Upon request from an Individual, we will make readily available information about our practices and policies relating to the management of personal data.

How long is information retained?

Required Member Information and Optional Member Information is retained as long as the Individual remains a Member of the Service.

Access Logs are retained for 1 week.

How can information be removed?

An Member may submit a request to to have their account deleted and all Required Member Information and Optional Member Information removed from the Service. This will cause them to no longer be a Member.

The Service cannot ensure that other Members do not personally retain Required Member Information or Optional Member Information shared to these other Members through the Service as described in this Policy.

The Service routinely deletes all Access Logs, so an Individual does not need to request its removal explicitly.
