Please be advised that the virtual data room portals that can be accessed through links on the Website 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.

Sharing Your Information
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 Website. These companies and individuals (which may include our affiliates) may have access to your personally identifiable information we collect through the Website, 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 personal information with that entity, its affiliates and its advisors, to the extent lawfully permissible.
We will not otherwise share your personal 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 Website 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 Website and send us such information at your own risk.
GI Partners makes no claims that the Website is appropriate or lawful for use or access outside the United States. Access to the Website from countries or territories where such access is illegal, is prohibited.
Please also note that our databases are located in the United States. By sending us your data, you acknowledge that your personal data may be transferred to and stored within the United States.
What Categories of Information Do We Collect About You?
We collect, or may collect, limited types of personal information through the Website.

Some internet browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference (the “DNT Signal”) to websites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. At this time, we do not currently respond to DNT Signals.
Who Do We Disclose Your Personal Information To?
We do not share (i.e., disclose to a third party for the purpose of cross-context behavioral advertising) or sell (as such terms are defined in the CCPA) any of the personal information we collect about you to third parties.
We will not disclose your personal 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.
