Website Privacy Policy

Lexington Partners L.P. and Lexington Advisors Inc. (“Lexington”) Website Privacy Policy

Lexington knows that your privacy is important to you, and we want you to know that it is important to us too. We created this Policy to explain the types of information we collect through our Websites on which it is posted (each, a “Site”), how we will use, disclose and protect this information once it is collected, and how you can opt-out of some of these practices. The Site is owned and operated by Lexington and its affiliates (referred to collectively in this policy as “we,” “us,” “our” and other similar pronouns).

This Policy does not apply to:

  • Information that you may provide, or that we may obtain, through your account hosted by Intralinks, Inc. that you may be able to access by following a hyperlink on the Site. Such information is subject to the Intralinks Privacy Policy available on its Website, which we encourage you to read to learn about the treatment of such information.
  • “Nonpublic personal information” (as defined by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act) about individuals who have obtained a financial product or service from us that is to be used primarily for personal, family or household purposes. Such information is subject to the privacy notices that we provide to such individuals pursuant to the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act and applicable regulations promulgated thereunder.
  • Information that you may provide to us, or that we may obtain, other than through the Site, such as over the phone, by mail, by email or in person.

If you are located outside of the United States, you should know that certain information collected about you is being transmitted to us and processed in the United States and will be protected subject to this Policy and United States laws, which may not be as protective as the laws in your country. Also, through the Site, our service providers may place cookies on your computer or device and use other tracking technologies which are further described below.

As is the case with many websites, our service providers may also automatically collect your IP address when you visit our Site, and may associate that with your domain name or that of your internet access provider. We also have access to this information. We use it to determine who is visiting our Site and how they are using the Site in order to improve user experience where this is necessary for our legitimate interests. We only retain your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for.

By using our Site, or clicking the “OK” button on the cookie banner you agree to the use of these tracking technologies as described above.

How is your information used?
We or our service providers may use the information collected about you and your Site visits to administer the Site, to assess the level of interest in, and use of, the Site, on an individual basis and in the aggregate, to conduct market research, to develop new features and offerings on the Site and other purposes disclosed when information is collected by us.

Do we share your information with others?
Yes. We may share the information we collect on the Site with others for a variety of reasons. In addition to the kinds of information sharing you might expect, such as sharing with third parties who need your information in order to provide services to us (or on our behalf), we may share your information:

  • with our affiliates for our and their business purposes;
  • when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a government, judicial or other legal request, or to comply with applicable law; and
  • in connection with a corporate change or dissolution, including for example a merger, acquisition, reorganization, consolidation, bankruptcy, liquidation, sale of assets or wind down of our business.

Do Not Track Disclosures & Cookie Choices
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can configure your browser to stop accepting new cookies, to notify you when you a new cookie is received, and to disable existing cookies. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org

Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (DNT) signals to the websites with which the user communicates.  Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them.

Our third party web analytics service provider, Google, may collect information about your online activities over time and across our Site and other online properties. Google may not change its tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser, and we do not obligate it to honor DNT settings.  You can opt out of your Site usage information being included in our Google Analytics reports by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Your Access Rights
If you have an account hosted by Intralinks, Inc., which you may be able to access by following a hyperlink on the Site, please refer to the Intralinks Privacy Policy to understand your rights to review, update or modify certain of the personally identifiable information that is stored in that account.

Security
Due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our system or otherwise in our care, will be absolutely safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers. A third party could view the information you send in transit by electronic means.  We will have no liability for disclosure of your information due to errors or unauthorized acts of third parties during or after transmission.

“Linked-To” Websites
The Site may contain links, banners or widgets that lead to other Websites, including to your account, if applicable, with Intralinks, Inc. or another third party. We are not responsible for these other sites and their posted privacy policies (not this Policy) will govern the collection and use of your information on them. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each Website visited after leaving the Site to learn about how your information is treated by others.

Your Legal Rights under European Law
If you are a natural person located in the European Union (a “Data Subject”), you may have certain rights in relation to your personal information, these may include, where certain conditions are met:

  • the right to request access to the personal information we hold about you,
  • the right to have inaccurate information about you amended or updated,
  • the right to object to the processing of personal information about you,
  • the right to withdraw consent at any time (where relevant),
  • the right to have personal information about you erased or to restrict processing in certain limited situations,
  • the right to data portability and to request the transmission of personal information about you to another organisation,
  • the right to object to automated decision making that materially impacts you, direct marketing, and processing for research or statistical purposes, and
  • the right to lodge complaints with applicable data supervisory authorities.

Data Subjects should use the contact information below to get more information and/or to make a formal request.

Changes to this Privacy Policy
We may change this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will let you know by posting the changed Policy on this page with a new “Effective Date.” In some cases (for example, if we significantly expand our use or sharing of your information), we may also tell you about changes by additional means, such as by sending an e-mail to the e-mail address we have on file for you. In some cases, we may request your consent to the changes.
