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 Company who need to know that information in order to provide the Company’s services. We may disclose such information to our service providers (including financial, technical, marketing, professional service providers, and consultants) and financial institutions that provide services to the Company. 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 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:
- Any governmental agency, regulatory authority or self-regulatory organization having jurisdiction over the Company or its affiliates, if (i) the Company determines that such disclosure is necessary or advisable pursuant to or in connection with any U.S. federal, state or local, or non-U.S., law, rule, regulation, executive order or policy, including without limitation any anti-money laundering law and the USA PATRIOT Act and (ii) such disclosure is not otherwise prohibited by law, rule, regulation, executive order or policy;
- Persons acting in a fiduciary or representative capacity on behalf of an investor, such as an IRA custodian or Trustee of a grantor trust; and
- Certain other persons to the extent authorized by you.
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 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 Company 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, you agree that Company may transfer Your personal information to a third party as part of that due diligence and transaction process.
VI. How we transfer your personal information
Because the Internet and our operations are global, your personal information that we collect or that you submit may be transferred to, processed in, and held in countries (including the United States) other than the one in which you reside. The European Union and United Kingdom do not consider the United States and many other countries to provide essentially equivalent privacy protections. Such transfers are a necessary part of the services that we provide.
When we transfer personal information internationally, and to the extent required by applicable data protection laws, we rely on appropriate or suitable safeguards, including:
- Where the relevant country or recipient has been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for your personal information by relevant authorities;
- Using standard contractual clauses approved by relevant authorities as ensuring adequate safeguards;
- Obtaining your consent to transfer personal information after first informing you about the possible risks of such a transfer;
- Transferring the personal information because it is necessary for the performance of (or to enter into) a contract between you and the Company, or because the transfer is necessary for the performance of a contract between the Company and a third party, and the contract was entered into in your interest; and
- Transferring the personal information because it is necessary to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
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 Privacy Notice, 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.

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, 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.

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 to 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.
