- We collect information that may personally identify you (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, billing information, or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information). For example, we may collect personal information from you when you register on the Website or subscribe to one of our services. The decision to provide this information is optional; however, if you decide not to register or provide such information, you may not be able to use certain features of the Website or other services.
- We may automatically collect information that does not identify an individual user, such as IP (internet protocol) address, ISP (internet service provider), the web browser used to visit the Website, the time the Website is visited, which Web pages were visited on the Website, a unique mobile device identifier (in connection with the use of the Website or related services from mobile devices) and other anonymous Website usage data.
How Do We Use The Information We Collect?
The information collected will be used to facilitate your registration on the Website, and will be used by Permal and its Services Providers to provide services to you.
We have policies that limit access to your [personal] information to only those people who need it to perform their jobs and provide services to you, and we have physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to protect your information from unauthorized access.
We may disclose the information we collect to third parties that assist us to provide financial services to you, which include, as applicable, the relevant fund’s administrator, distributors, brokers and custodians.
From time to time, we disclose your information with persons or entities whom we have asked to assist us to operate our business or provide services to you ("Service Providers"). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services including without limitation data management, web hosting, web development, and analytics tools. We provide our Service Providers with the information needed for them to perform these services. Each Service Provider must agree to implement and maintain reasonable security procedures and practices appropriate to the nature of your information in order to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure. We also may disclose information with other non-affiliated third parties who perform services on our behalf or who assist us in providing services to you, such as attorneys and accountants, and as otherwise permitted by law. These third parties may be based in countries outside the EEA.
We may use aggregate information to measure general Website usage patterns and characteristics of our user base, and we may include such aggregate information about our audience in reports to our commercial vendors. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics (for example, a certain percentage of our users live in a certain area) without your permission in order to describe our audience to existing and prospective advertisers or other third parties. However, this aggregate information does not reference names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, or other personal information, and it is not traceable to a specific recipient or user e-mail address.
In certain instances we may disclose your personal information when we have reason to believe it is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against persons or entities who may be causing injury to you, to Permal or its affiliates, or to others. We may also disclose your personal information when we believe the law or legal process requires such disclosure, to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, or to protect our rights.
We use encryption and authentication tools to protect the security of personal information that you share with us. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect personal information, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you transmit to or from the Website, and you do so at your own risk.
