This California Website Privacy Policy supplements the above Website Privacy Policy with respect to specific rights granted under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (as amended, the “CCPA”) to natural person California residents and provides information regarding how such California residents can exercise their rights under the CCPA. This supplement is only relevant to you if you are a resident of California as determined in accordance with the CCPA. Information required to be disclosed to California residents under the CCPA regarding the collection of their personal information that is not set forth in this CCPA supplement is otherwise set forth in the above Website Privacy Policy. To the extent there is any conflict with the privacy requirements under the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act and/or Regulation S-P (“GLB Rights”), GLB Rights shall apply.

What does this Website Privacy Policy apply to?

This Website Privacy Policy applies solely to your interactions with us through our Website (as defined below). If you provide personal information to use through another means (e.g., as an employee or seeking employment, as a client, or as an investor) you will receive a separate privacy notice and that notice will govern that personal information.

What information do we collect about you?

We collect limited types of personal information through our website and investor reporting portals, as well as through other electronic communications (e.g., emails), as applicable (collectively, the “Website”). The types of personal information we collect about you depends on the nature of your interaction with us. The categories of personal information we have collected from individuals on this Website over the last twelve (12) months include the following:

  • Commercial information, such as account data;
  • Professional or employment-related information;
  • Education information;
  • Internet or other electronic network activity information, such as information regarding your use of our Website (e.g., cookies, browsing history and/or search history), as well as information you provide to us when you correspond with us in relation to inquiries. The browsing and/or search history information may include the websites that you access immediately before and after your visit to our website. If we use such data at all, it will be on an aggregated and anonymised basis.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18.
