1. What is Personal Data and what Personal Data do we collect?

“Personal Data” is any information relating to you or that we can otherwise link to you or your household.  

The Personal Data we collect on this website may include your name, email address, residential address, IP address, telephone number, login information for our investor portal and other contact information. Some of this information we will only have access to if you provide it to us.  When you visit our website, we may collect information about you when you enter and browse our website through the use of “cookies,” web server logs and other electronic tools.  This information may include, without limitation, the number and frequency of your visits to our website, the websites accessed before and after you visit our website, the internet browser used by you and your IP address. 

2. How do we collect Personal Data?

We collect Personal Data that you voluntarily provide to us, such as through “contact us” forms you choose to submit on our website to obtain more information about Chicago Pacific Founders or our funds.  We may also collect Personal Data through the use of “cookies” on our website, in the ordinary course of evaluating service providers, vendors and investments, in marketing our funds or from publicly available or accessible directories, databases and agencies.  We may combine personal information that you provide to us with information that we collect from or about you from publicly available sources. This will include information collected in an online or offline context.

In addition to Personal Data collected from your use of our website, we may also collect Personal Data regarding our business contacts, partners, current and prospective investors, vendors and other contacts.  We will collect some of this Personal Data if you contact our office or employees directly.  

3. How do we use your Personal Data? 

We use the Personal Data we collect from you on our website for communication purposes, such as, but not limited to (i) sending you information about Chicago Pacific Founders and/or our investment funds and (ii) maintaining our list of contacts.  We use the Personal Data we collect from you through other means for business purposes, such as, but not limited to (i) communicating with service providers and vendors, (ii) researching investment opportunities and (iii) managing our investments.  No automated decision-making, including profiling, is used when processing your personal information. 

4. Why do we process your Personal Data?

We process your Personal Data collected from your use of this website for certain business reasons, including communication and marketing purposes.  We process your Personal Data collected by other means for other business reasons, including managing our business and our funds’ investments. 

5. What legal basis do we use to process your Personal Data?

In accordance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) we rely on our legitimate business interests (including, but not limited to, internal administrative purposes, direct marketing or conducting market research), contractual obligations, legal obligations or your consent in maintaining business relationships, communicating about Chicago Pacific Founders’ business and performing other business services as the basis for collecting and processing your Personal Data. 

6. Is it necessary to provide Personal Data?

You are not required to submit information to us through this website.  However, we may collect “cookies” which may be automatically collected and will not necessarily require your consent.  For our service providers, vendors, investors and other contacts, it is necessary to provide some Personal Data in order for us to do business with you. 

7. With whom do we share your Personal Data?

We will not share your Personal Data with third parties except as permitted or required by law or regulation and to affiliates and service providers, including in the context of those third parties acting as data processors on our behalf and with whom we have a need to share such information.  For example, we may use a customer relationship manager software platform to organize our business contacts, and your Personal Data may reside on that software.  Where relevant, we will ensure that contractual safeguards are implemented with these third-party data processors to ensure the protection of your Personal Data.  

Chicago Pacific Founders does not sell or transfer Personal Data to affiliates or third parties for value and does not intend to do so in the future.  We will amend this Privacy Notice promptly upon any changes to this policy. 

8. How long do we retain your Personal Data?

Your Personal Data will be retained for as long as you are one of our business contacts, or longer as required by applicable law.  Your Personal Data may be deleted when it is no longer relevant or when you withdraw consent (pursuant to the rights detailed directly below which may be exercised by using the contact information contained at the end of this Privacy Notice), again within the parameters of applicable law.  If we send you emails and/or market to you, you may unsubscribe at any time from communications from us, and we will cease sending you further communications.
