Information Collection, Use and Disclosure
We collect, use and disclose certain personal information from and about you during your use of the website of Birch Hill (the “Website”).
Collection: We collect information regarding the areas of the Website you visit, the websites you previously visited, the websites you link to when you leave our Website, and the information and data you request, view and download from or through the Website. We also collect information you provide through the Website.
We may also collect information from you through the use of “cookies”. Cookies are small pieces of data, which are stored on your computer to allow your web browser to remember something about our Website.
Use: We use the information we collect from you to verify your identity and protect against error and fraud, comply with legal and regulatory requirements, send information to you and for our other legitimate business interests as may, from time to time, be permitted by law. We use and disclose your personal information only for the purposes for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required by law. We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your personally identifiable information to any third parties except as permitted hereunder. This does not include our affiliated entities, co-investors or third party service providers who assist us in operating our Website, conducting our business or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. If you provide us with personal data about another person, you represent that you have all necessary authority and/or have obtained all necessary consents from that individual to enable us to collect, use and disclose that personal data. If you exchange emails with Birch Hill personnel, our systems will retain a record of all email communications.
We may share aggregated demographic information about our users with our business associates, but this information cannot be used to identify any particular individual. We may also disclose your information when we believe it’s appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, protect ours or others’ rights, property or safety, prevent other harm or loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity.
We strive to limit collection, use and disclosure of personal data in the course of transactions. However, where reasonably necessary for business transactions, we may collect personal data from, or disclose personal data to third parties. This may include information for background checks (including criminal and credit checks) or for proposed or actual purchase, sale, financing, investment or other type of transactions. In the event that all of any of our assets are acquired by an unrelated third party, your personal information may be one of the transferred assets. By providing your personal information to us, you agree that we may disclose your personal information, on a confidential basis, to any prospective transferee and its professional advisors for the purposes of their due diligence investigations, the completion of any such transaction and the continued operation of the acquired business.
YOU HEREBY CONSENT TO US COLLECTING, USING AND DISCLOSING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED ABOVE.
This website contains links to and from other sites. This privacy statement only applies to information collected by us. We are not responsible for the privacy practices and policies of these third parties.
Retention of Information
We will retain your personal information in accordance with our retention policies. The period for which we will retain personal data will vary depending on the purposes it was collected for, as well as the requirements of any applicable law or regulation.
Accuracy of Information
We want to keep your personal information up to date, accurate and relevant for its intended use. We rely on you to let us know if your address, telephone number or other information changes, so that we may provide you with the best possible service.
Access to Information
You have the right to request access to your personal information we have on record in order to ensure it is accurate. We do not routinely update personal information unless necessary. Nonetheless, if our records regarding your personal information are inaccurate or incomplete, we will amend that information at your request. To access your personal information, a request must be submitted in writing to us as stated above. We will respond to your request for access or information in a reasonable time. There may be times when we are unable to fulfill your request – for example, if providing access to your personal information would reveal confidential commercial or proprietary information or personal information about someone else (and we are unable to separate your data), or if we are prohibited by law from disclosing the information.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We will use appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. When we are required by law to provide information, we take reasonable steps to verify the lawful authority for the collection and we disclose only the information that is legally required. We review our procedures and security measures regularly to ensure that they are properly administered and remain effective and appropriate for the sensitivity of the information.
If you wish to have any of your personal information removed from our databases, or if you no longer want us to send any further communications to you, please contact email@example.com. Your request will be promptly processed but may not be in time to remove you from communications already in progress.
Europe and the United Kingdom
If you are dealing with us within the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the UK, please note that any personal data that we hold may be transferred to, and stored at, a country outside of the EEA or the UK. Where we transfer data to our affiliates or service providers in countries outside the EEA or the UK, we will take reasonable steps to seek to ensure that those transfers take place in accordance with applicable data protection laws including, where appropriate, under an agreement on terms approved for this purpose by the European Commission.
