Website Privacy Policy

Overview

Cross Ocean Partners Management LP and Cross Ocean Adviser LLP (alternately, “Cross Ocean”, “we”, “us” or “our”) respects your privacy and are committed to complying with this website privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”), which describes what information we collect about you, including how we collect it, how we use it, with whom we may share it and what choices you have regarding our use of your information.   

This Privacy Policy applies to information collected on our website located at www.crossoceanpartners.com (the “Site”), all interactive features, applications, widgets, social networks and social network “tabs”, and other online or wireless offerings that post a link to this Privacy Policy, whether accessed via computer, mobile device or other technology or any associated content, material, or functionality contained on the Site (collectively, the “Services” and, together with the Site, the “System”).

For the avoidance of doubt, this Privacy Policy does not affect the terms of any privacy policy set out in a subscription document a user may have in place with Cross Ocean or its advised or sub-advised funds (a “Subscription Privacy Policy”), and to the extent that the terms of this Privacy Policy and the terms of a Subscription Privacy Policy conflict, the terms of that user’s Subscription Policy prevail.

Changes to our Privacy Policy

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time.  The most recent version of the Privacy Policy is reflected by the version date located at the bottom of this Privacy Policy. All such updates and amendments are effective immediately upon notice thereof, which we may give by any means, including, but not limited to, by posting a revised version of this Privacy Policy or other notice on the Site. You should view this Privacy Policy often to stay informed of changes that may affect you, as your continued use of the System signifies your continuing consent to be bound by this Privacy Policy. We expressly reserve the right to make any changes to this Privacy Policy at any time, without prior notice to you. The version of this Privacy Policy posted on the Site on each respective date you visit the Site shall be the Privacy Policy applicable to your access and use of the System on that date.

As described in detail below, we reserve the right to collect certain identifying information from or about you in connection with your use of, or any of your submissions to, the System (collectively, the “Collected Information”).  Collected Information includes, without limitation, any information that may be used to identify an individual, including, but not limited to, a first and last name, a phone number or an email address.

Additionally, we may retain and use certain Collected Information to facilitate and otherwise address certain inquiries or requests regarding the Services or the System, or respond to your questions or requests for information about or from Cross Ocean.  We may also use Collected Information as necessary to ensure compliance with any Cross Ocean policies and any applicable law, regulation or order.

With whom do we share information that we collect?

In addition to the uses mentioned or described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy or in the Terms, we may catalogue and add Collected Information to our database.

We do not sell, rent, or lease our user lists or the identity of individual users to third parties. However, Cross Ocean may use and disclose certain aggregated, anonymized information, such as System usage data, to our trusted business partners. 

We may also disclose Collected Information if we become subject to a subpoena or court order, or if we are otherwise legally required to disclose information. We may also use and disclose Collected Information to establish or exercise our legal rights, to enforce the Terms, to assert and defend against legal claims, or if we believe such disclosure is necessary to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding actual or suspected illegal or fraudulent activities or potential threats to the physical safety or well-being of any person.

As Cross Ocean grows and develops its business, it is possible that its corporate structure or organization might change or that it might merge or otherwise combine with, or that it or portions of its business might be acquired by, another company. In any such transactions, Collected Information may also transfer.

What choices do you have?

When submitting information, corresponding, making requests for information, and otherwise interacting with Cross Ocean and its representatives through or in connection with the System, you choose what information to supply or submit, whether you wish to receive further information, and how you may be contacted. Please take care to share only such information as is needed or that you believe is appropriate.

How do we protect information collected about you?

Cross Ocean takes commercially reasonable measures to secure and protect information transmitted via or stored on the System. Nevertheless, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee that information that users of the System may happen to transmit or otherwise supply will be totally secure. You agree to immediately notify us of any breach of System's security, this Privacy Policy or the Terms of which you become aware.
