How We Collect, Use, Share, and Protect Your Information
We do not collect any personally identifiable information from you through the Site except as described below. Personally identifiable information (also referred to as personal data) is information that personally identifies you, or can be used with other information to identify you, such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, or credit card information (or other information that is associated by us with such above information). We are not responsible for any other websites accessible from or linked to the Site, including their privacy policies or information collection practices. Further, we do not control any cookies, web beacons, or other similar devices that may be placed on the Site by third parties.
Site Visits: In general, we automatically gather certain information from the Site visitors, such as the number and frequency of your visits, through server logs. This information may include the URL of the last and next website you visit, your browser and operating system, your IP address, how long you spend on the Site, and what pages you view there.
Please be advised that the virtual data room portals that can be accessed through links on the Site by investors in funds managed by GI Partners are maintained by third-party service providers, whose privacy policies apply to those portals and to the personal information you provide in activating and using your account to access those portals. The third party service providers only inform us of who has access to the portals they operate. We encourage you to review those privacy policies.
Other: We will collect any other personally identifiable information from you if you voluntarily provide it through the Site, such as by providing your e-mail address and other personal information to receive further information about us.
How We Use Your Information
We may use the personally identifiable information collected via Site visits on an aggregate basis to improve the Site, provide visitors with customized services and information, and for other similar purposes. We may also use this information to understand better how our visitors use the Site and to research our visitors’ demographics, interests, and behavior.
We will use the personally identifiable information that you voluntarily provide for the purpose of processing and responding to your inquiries and requests and to improve the Site and offerings.
Sharing Your Information
We may share your non-personally identifiable information with others, such as investors, for informational or promotional purposes. Non-personally identifiable information is information that does not personally identify you, and cannot be used to identify you, including anonymous information and aggregate data.
We may use service providers to facilitate our services and perform functions on our behalf, such as sending postal mail and e-mail and providing technical, analytical, and hosting functions for the Site. These companies and individuals (which may include our affiliates) may have access to your personally identifiable information we collect through the Site, as permitted by law and as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for any other purpose. We require that these companies and individuals otherwise keep this information confidential.
If GI Partners is sold to, merges with or transfers substantially all of its assets to, another entity, GI Partners has the right to share your personally identifiable information with that entity, its affiliates and its advisors, to the extent lawfully permissible.
We will not otherwise share your personally identifiable information, except as required by law, requested by governmental entity or law enforcement authority, subpoena, court order or discovery request, or when we otherwise believe in good faith that such disclosure is necessary or appropriate in connection with any activity that violates the law (including relating to intellectual property, fraud, contracts, and privacy) or may expose us to liability. We can (and you authorize us to) disclose any of your information in such circumstances.
The security of your information is important to us. We employ several different technical, administrative, and physical security measures to protect any personal information you provide through the Site from unauthorized access or use. You should be aware, however, that “perfect security” does not exist on the Internet, and there is always the risk that unauthorized persons may access or use your personal information. You use the Site and send us such information at your own risk.
