Your privacy is important to us, and so is being transparent about how we collect, use, and share information about you.
1. DESCRIPTION DATA PRIMEALPHA COLLECTS
In operating the Service, PrimeAlpha collects certain personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) and other non-individually identifiable data from users, as further described below.
2. DATA PRIMEALPHA COLLECTS FROM USERS
When users use PrimeAlpha and use the Services they are asked to provide information about their business and to provide Personal Information about themselves and certain other individuals who may be permitted to use the Service as representatives of the business. Users may be asked to provide information about their firm and details about their firm and investment products. Users may also be required to provide contact information, and other details regarding the organization. Personal Information such as name, location, current and past work history may also be collected to better provide a targeted service for your use.
3. GENERAL DATA THAT MAY BE COLLECTED
COOKIES: In operating the Service, we may use a technology called “cookies.” Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Service and help us analyze Service usage more accurately. For instance, our Service may set a cookie on a user’s browser that allows you to access the Service without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Service. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the features of our Service.
USAGE: PrimeAlpha collects certain data about all users’ use of the Service, such as the information about the pages of the web site visited, the length of time each page was visited and similar data. PrimeAlpha may use such information and pool it with other information to analyze the use of the Service. PrimeAlpha may also collect and maintain users’ IP addresses.
4. LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING (FOR EEA USERS):
If you are an individual in the European Economic Area (EEA), we collect and process information about you only where we have legal bases for doing so under applicable EU laws. The legal bases depend on the Services you use and how you use them. This means we collect and use your information only where:
We need it to provide you the Services, including to operate the Services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the Services;
It satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your data protection interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the Services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
You give us consent to do so for a specific purpose; or
We need to process your data to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our use of information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g. your employer) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may mean no longer using the Services.
If you are based outside the United States, you should be aware that your data will be transmitted to the United States and processed in accordance with US law. US law may impose different requirements and provide for different protections from the law of the jurisdiction in which you are based.
5. PRIMEALPHA MAY USE DATA IN THE FOLLOWING WAYS

6. PRIMEALPHA AND SHARING OF DATA
PrimeAlpha only shares Personal Information and other data that is provided to it through the Service in the following limited circumstances:
THIRD PARTIES: PrimeAlpha, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the data that they need to perform their specific function.
CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP: In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Information and other data may be part of the transferred assets.
AGGREGATED DATA: PrimeAlpha may disclose data collected through the Service in aggregate form in order to describe the Service to current and prospective business partners and to other non-affiliated third parties for other lawful purposes. We may also aggregate data collected through the services to create various indices and other products.
PrimeAlpha realizes security of your data is critical and takes reasonable commercial measures to protect the Personal Information and other data that is collected through the Service from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Service may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
8. OTHER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
10. Notice to End Users
Many of our products are intended for use by organizations. Where the Services are made available to you through an organization (e.g. your employer), that organization is the administrator of the Services and is responsible for the accounts and/or Service sites over which it has control. If this is the case, please direct your data privacy questions to your administrator, as your use of the Services is subject to that organization's policies. We are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of an administrator's organization, which may be different than this policy.
Administrators are able to:
require you to reset your account password;
restrict, suspend or terminate your access to the Services;
access information in and about your account;
access or retain information stored as part of your account;
install or uninstall third-party apps or other integrations
In some cases, administrators can also:
restrict, suspend or terminate your account access;
change the email address associated with your account;
change your information, including profile information;
restrict your ability to edit, restrict, modify or delete information
Even if the Services are not currently administered to you by an organization, if you use an email address provided by an organization (such as your work email address) to access the Services, then the owner of the domain associated with your email address (e.g. your employer) may assert administrative control over your account and use of the Services at a later date. Please contact your organization or refer to your administrator’s organizational policies for more information.
Deactivate your account: If you no longer wish to use our Services, please contact PrimeAlpha support at . Please be aware that deactivating your account does not delete your information; your information remains visible to other users based on your past participation within the Services (such as a data room managed by another user). Deactivating your account does mean that no user profile will be viewable by other users who have not been given access prior to deactivation.
