Privacy Policy & Cookie Statements

MidOcean US Advisor, LP and its affiliates (collectively, “MidOcean”, “us” or “we”) respect your privacy as a visitor to the www.midoceanpartners.com website (the “Site”). It is important for you to understand what information we collect about you during your visit and what we do with that information. Your visit to this Site is subject to this “Privacy Policy” which governs our use of personally identifiable information and our Terms of Use. By visiting this Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use and that we may collect, disclose and use information about you as provided below. You should review this privacy policy carefully, and if you do not agree with these terms, or at any time to any future version of these terms, you must discontinue your use of the Site.

In the course of marketing its services and doing business, MidOcean collects and processes personal information. What information we collect and how we handle that information is outlined below. 

Please note that this Privacy Policy is limited only to the information that we collect through this website. This Privacy Policy DOES NOT apply to our off-line practices or policies, or electronic communications to us other than through this website (such as direct electronic communications). 

The information we collect

We use the personal information you provide us, including your name, email address to send occasional informational emails or to respond to an inquiry you might initiate.

We may also automatically collect other, non-personally identifiable, information each time you visit this website, including, without limitation:

  • Technical information, including the Internet protocol address used to connect your computer to the Internet, browser type and version and device type and version.
  • Usage data and information about your visit, including the full Uniform Resource Locators (URL), clicks to, through and from this website (including date and time), page response times, download errors, and length of visits to certain pages.
  • Information from cookies and similar technologies (see Cookie Policy below).
  • General location information to identify where our audience views the website from.

 Some of the information described above can be collected by us only if you enable them on your hardware or software. For example, it is your option (and under your control) to accept or delete cookies, to enable location information, and to control the information that your browser transmits.

During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page. We may use this information to measure Site activity, to develop ideas for improving our Site, and for any other purpose. We may freely share this information with others so long as it is not personally identifiable information.

How We Use Personally Identifiable Information

We may store your personally identifiable information and use it for marketing, research and other business purposes, and we may associate your personally identifiable information with other information we collect about you, such as details about your usage patterns and interests.

Additionally, sometimes we hire companies to provide services to us. In those instances, there is sometimes a need to share your information with such companies. Sometimes we also work with other companies who help either gather your information or communicate with you. However, we will not sell your information to any other business without your consent except as necessary for you to continue to receive the benefits of any program or service you specifically request. We may also disclose any information we deem necessary, in our sole discretion, to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request, or to our attorneys and regulators and certain service providers such as the host of this Site.

As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy entities, subsidiaries, or other business units. In such transactions, visitor information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing Privacy Policy. Also, in the event that MidOcean, or substantially all of its assets are acquired, visitor information will, of course, be one of the transferred assets.

We primarily use your personal data to send you our email newsletter or other non-frequent marketing emails, to respond to an inquiry that you might initiate, or to conduct day-to-day business if you are a client.

We may also share information 

  • With our data processors and partners, for example, Backstop (the email transmission service for our newsletters); Eze Castle Integration (our secure cloud hosting/ email service provider), all of which are required to enable the website’s smooth operation as well as our business functions.
  • With lawful third parties or authorities for the purpose of preventing fraud and spam activity or if personal information is requested as part of a lawful investigation.
  • With third-parties that you authorize, such as photographers, designers or other vendors to help us perform our services.

We do not share your personal data with any other third party and do not sell information for advertising or promotional purposes. 

Retaining your personal data

We will retain your data for as long as we are obliged, under relevant legislation and regulation, or where no such rules apply, for no longer than it is necessary for our lawful purposes, and until you notify us to delete your data.

Your individual privacy rights

You have the right to object to how we process your personal data. You also have the right to see what personal data we hold and process. You can ask us to correct inaccuracies, delete or restrict personal data or ask for some of your personal data to be provided to someone else. These rights are explained in more detail below. 

Requests to exercise your rights to your personal data can be made using the inquiry form at the bottom of this page.

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

In 2016 the European Union (EU) created new regulations to protect the data and privacy of all individuals within the EU.  These regulations aim to give EU citizens and residents control over their personal data, including when it is exported outside the EU.  This collection of rules and protocols is called the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, and is effective as of May 25, 2018. 

If you are an EU Citizen, you have these rights:

  • To be informed: You have the right to be provided with clear, transparent and easily understandable information about how we use your data and your rights. We fulfill this right by giving you this notice.
  • Access to your personal data: You can request access to a copy of your personal data.
  • Right to withdraw and opt-out: You may unsubscribe from our mailing list by e-mailing this request to us
  • Right to object: You may object to our processing of your personal data by us.
  • Rectification: You can ask us to change or complete any inaccurate or incomplete personal data held about you.
  • Erasure: This is also known as “the right to be forgotten” and this means that you can ask us to delete your personal data where it is no longer necessary for us to use it, you have withdrawn consent (where applicable), or where we have no lawful basis for keeping it or otherwise using it. There are limited exceptions, for example where we need to use the information to bring or defend a legal claim.
  • Portability: You can ask us to provide you or a third party with some of the personal data that we hold about you in a structured, commonly used, electronic form, so it can be easily transferred. This is limited to personal data you have provided with your consent or in relation to the products you have with us, and which we process by automated means, such as your account transaction data.
  • Restriction:
    • You can ask us to restrict the personal data we use about you where: it is inaccurate; you have asked for it to be erased; you have objected to our use of it; or where you need this for the bringing or defending of legal claims.
    • When you have asked us to restrict the use of your personal data we may still store your information but will not use it further without your consent, unless we need to process it: to bring or defend legal claims; to protect the rights and freedoms of other individuals; or for other important public interest reasons.

 Please note that though not all privacy laws are as strict as the EU GDPR, we will generally extend these concepts of privacy and transparency to all users since we feel your privacy is very important.

Requests to exercise your rights under the GDPR can be made using the inquiry form at the bottom of this page.

Marketing

We may use your data to tell you about relevant products and offers that we think you may find interesting. We can only use your personal data to send you marketing messages if you have given your consent or it is for a legitimate interest (when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information).

Transmission of Information via the internet

Although we use encryption (https) on our website, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. While we do our best to protect your data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to this website; any transmission is AT YOUR OWN RISK. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to prevent unauthorized access.

Cookie Policy

 The cookies we use on www.midoceanpartners.com do not contain any information that personally identifies you and we do not manually or programmatically link cookie identifiers with the personal information stored in our system. The cookies we set are used to track if a user is logged in or not and also for anonymous web traffic analysis.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies can be used by web servers to identify and track users as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

How can you control the use of cookies from MidOcean Partners?

If you don't want us to use cookies when you use this website, you can adjust your internet browser settings not to accept cookies. Your web browser's help function should tell you how to do this. Alternatively, to find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit the website: http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

 Google Analytics: We use Google Analytics – the web analytics service provided by Google Inc. The Google Analytics cookies track activity on this website but do not collect personal information about you.

You may disable scripts run by Google Analytics to the extent that your browser and associated programs provide such functionality. To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites, visit this website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
