We also collect, use, and share aggregated information such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose. This information could be derived from your personal information but will not directly or indirectly reveal your identity. For example, we may aggregate your Site usage information to calculate the percentage of users accessing a specific Site feature. However, if we combine or connect information with your personal information so that it can directly or indirectly identify you, we treat the combined information as personal information which will be used in accordance with this Policy.
II. How we collect your personal information

A. Personal information you provide to us or collected as part of transactions

C. Information collected automatically
We may automatically collect certain information about the devices you use to access the Site, as well as information on how you interact with the Site, through cookies, web server logs, and other similar tracking technologies. This information may include the IP address used to connect your computer to the Internet; computer and connection information such as your browser type and version; operating system and platform; confirmation when you open email that we send you; and the URLs which lead you to and around the Site including the date and time of access.
1. Cookies and other data collection technologies
“Cookies” are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognize the computer used to access a website. They are small text files that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Cookies can remember what information a user accesses on one website to simplify subsequent interactions with that site by the same user or to use the information to streamline the user’s transactions on related websites. A number of cookies we use last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you close your browser. Other cookies last longer and are used to recognize your computer when you return to the Site. Cookies are designed to make your online experience easier and more personalized. They can only be read by the server that placed them and are unable to execute any code or virus.
Web server logs are files that store the activity on a certain website.
Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include information such as the date and time of visits to the Site, the pages viewed, time spent at the Site, and the websites visited just before and just after the Site. We do not link cookies to personally identifiable information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You can change your browser settings to notify you of the cookies being set or updated, and to block cookies. Please note that if you have turned off all cookies, some features of the Site may not be available to you or otherwise function as intended. To learn more about how to manage cookies on different types of browsers, you can visit the website www.allaboutcookies.org.
2. “Do Not Track” Browser Settings
We do not currently use technology that recognizes “do not track” signals from your web browser.
III. How we use your personal information
We will only use your personal information when and how the law allows us to. Any of the personal information we collect about you may be used for one of the following business purposes:
In some circumstances, we may also process your personal information where we have received your consent. For example, depending on where you are located, in order to send you marketing materials or to place cookies or similar tracking technologies on your devices. Where processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.
In addition to the bases discussed above, we may process portfolio company personal information in order to provide management and advisory services to our portfolio companies or otherwise for our legitimate interests, which also include: conducting research and due diligence into potential investment targets; preparing reports on investment targets; reviewing, monitoring and managing our investment portfolio; business management and planning; administration and maintenance of our core records.
IV. How we protect your personal information
We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and security of your personal information and take precautions to protect such information. These precautions include the adoption of certain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards and procedures designed to maintain and secure your personal information from inappropriate disclosure in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
Our policies require that access to personal information be restricted to those employees and agents of the Firm who need to know that information in order to provide the Firm’s services. We may disclose such information to our service providers (including financial, technical, marketing and professional service providers and consultants) and financial institutions that provide services to the Firm. We require such third-party service providers and financial institutions to protect the confidentiality of your personal information and to use the information only for purposes for which it is disclosed to them.
V. When we disclose your personal information
We do not sell personal information obtained about you to any third parties and have not done so in the twelve (12) months preceding the effective date of this Policy.
We do not disclose any personal information to anyone other than our affiliates, service providers and relevant counterparties without your consent, or as required by applicable law or regulation. This means that we may disclose your personal information to other third parties, including:
On all occasions when it is necessary for us to share your personal information with other parties, we will require that such information only be used for the limited purpose for which it is shared and will advise such third parties not to further share your information with others except to fulfill that limited purpose.
We do not disclose personal information except as may be required or permitted by law, rule or regulation. We may disclose for a business purpose and have disclosed in the preceding twelve (12) months, personal information, including contact information, employment information, identification information, background information and financial information to third parties, as listed above.
We may aggregate survey responses for publication. However, this will not include any non-public personal information or any information identifiable to a particular Site user.
If the Firm sells all or part of its business or makes a sale or transfer of assets or is otherwise involved in a merger, restructuring or business transfer, the Firm may transfer your personal information to a third-party purchaser as part of that due diligence and transaction process.
VI. How we transfer your personal information
Because the Internet and our operations are global, the personal information that we collect about you or that you submit to us may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries (including the United States) other than the one in which you reside. Such transfers and processing are a necessary part of the services that we provide.
While the European Union and United Kingdom do not consider the United States and many other countries to provide essentially equivalent privacy protections, to the extent required by and in accordance with applicable data protection laws, we rely on appropriate or suitable safeguards to ensure such transfers are lawful, including:
For more information on the safeguards we have in place, please contact us using the details below.
VII. Retention of your personal information
We will retain your personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Policy, or as long as we are legally required or permitted to do so. Under certain circumstances, you may have the right to have your personal information erased.
When deciding how long to retain your personal information, we take into account our legal and regulatory obligations, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information described above and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means. We may also retain your personal information to investigate or defend against potential legal claims in accordance with the limitation periods of countries where legal action may be brought.
VIII. Third-party links
The Site may contain links to third-party websites, products and services. These third-party websites and services have separate and independent privacy policies, which we encourage you to read. We have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of such linked sites. However, we want to protect the integrity of our Site and thus welcome any feedback you may have about third-party sites we link to.
IX. Children’s Privacy
The Site is not directed toward children under the age of 18. We do not promote our products or services online to minors, and we do not intentionally collect any personally identifiable information from any person under 18. If we become aware of having collected personal information from children under the age of 18 without valid consent from their respective parents or guardians, we will delete it as soon as practicable.
X. Changes to your personal information
You are not required to supply any of the personal information that we may request, except where such information is necessary for the performance of (or to enter into) a contract with you or is otherwise required by applicable law. However, failure to do so may result in our being unable to accept your business or provide services to you. We will make reasonable efforts to ensure that all information that we hold about you is accurate, complete and up to date. You can help in this regard by promptly notifying us at the address listed below if there are any changes to your personal information.
XI. Changes to this Policy
We may update this Policy periodically, without prior notice, so please review it frequently. If we decide to change this Policy, we will post those changes on the Site so that you are aware of what kinds of personal information we collect, use, share and otherwise process. If we make material changes to this Policy, we will notify you on this Site, update the effective date above, and provide you with notice as required by applicable law.
XII. Data Subject Rights
We are committed to providing individuals with reasonable and appropriate access to their personal information. If you believe that we are processing personal information about you and wish to have access to that information, we can provide you with that data or at least an explanation of why we cannot do so in the particular context, such as where the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. We are happy to correct inaccurate data or delete information that is not appropriate to retain.
Individuals in Andorra, Argentina, Australia, California, Canada, Cayman Islands, Europe, Faroe Islands, Guernsey, Hong Kong, Israel, Isle of Man, Japan, Jersey, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Uruguay, and certain other jurisdictions may have certain data subject rights. These rights vary, but they may include the right to: (i) request access to and rectification or erasure of their personal information; (ii) restrict or object to the processing of their personal information; (iii) obtain a copy of their personal information in a portable format; and (iv) object to certain personal information processing activities.
Individuals may also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of personal information with a data protection authority. We are always open to dialogue to resolve issues short of formal disputes. If your concerns cannot be resolved, we can enter into appropriate third-party neutral dispute resolution. If you need to reach us about a privacy or data protection issue, please contact us using the details below.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please email email@example.com or call us at (434) 979-2070. The rights described herein are not absolute and we reserve all of our rights available to us at law in this regard. Additionally, if we retain your personal information only in de-identified form, we will not attempt to re-identify your data in response to a data subject rights request.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) prohibits covered businesses from discriminating against you for exercising applicable CCPA rights.
If you make a request related to personal information about you, we will need to verify your identity. To do so, we will request that you match specific pieces of information you have provided us previously, as well as, in some instances, provide a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the individual whose personal information is the subject of the request. If it is necessary to collect additional information from you, we will use the information only for verification purposes and will delete it as soon as practicable after complying with the request.
For requests related to particularly sensitive information, we may require additional proof of identification. If you make a request through an authorized agent, we will require written proof that the agent is authorized to act on your behalf. We will process your request within the time provided by applicable law.
