Laurus Transaction Advisors is dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to it. As part of this fundamental obligation, Laurus Transaction Advisors is committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal information (sometimes referred to as “personally identifiable information” or “PII”) that has been collected through its web site.
Collection and use of PII
We obtain personal information about you if you choose to provide it — for example, to contact mailboxes. By submitting personal information on our web sites, you are also agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal information is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards. For example, if you send us an email message requesting information about Laurus Transaction Advisors, we will use your email address and other information you supply to respond to your request. If you send us a resume or curriculum vitae (CV) to apply online for a position with Laurus Transaction Advisors, we will use the information that you provide to match you with available Laurus Transaction Advisors job opportunities.
Laurus Transaction Advisors only collects “sensitive” personal information when the relevant individuals voluntarily provide us with this information or where such information is required or permitted to be collected by law or professional standards. Sensitive information includes personal information regarding a person’s race, ethnicity, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, sexual life or criminal record. Please use your discretion when providing sensitive information to Laurus Transaction Advisors, and under any circumstances, do not provide sensitive information to Laurus Transaction Advisors, unless you thereby consent to Laurus Transaction Advisors’ use of that information for its legitimate business purposes and consent to the transfer and storage of such information to and in Laurus Transaction Advisors databases. If you have any questions about whether the provision of sensitive information to Laurus Transaction Advisors is, or may be, necessary or appropriate for particular purposes, please contact Laurus Transaction Advisors at the address indicated below.
Automatic collection of PII
In some instances, Laurus Transaction Advisors automatically collects certain types of information when you visit our web sites and through emails that we may exchange. Automated technologies may include the use of web server logs to collect IP addresses, “cookies”, and web beacons. The collection of this information will allow us to better understand and improve the performance, usability and effectiveness of our Web site and to measure effectiveness of our marketing activities.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in aggregate form to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.
A web beacon is a small image file on a web page that can be used to collect certain information from your computer, such as an IP address, the time the content was viewed, a browser type, and the existence of cookies previously set by the same server. Laurus Transaction Advisors only uses web beacons in accordance with applicable laws.
Laurus Transaction Advisors or its service providers may use web beacons to gather aggregate visitor statistics and manage cookies.
In some of our newsletters and other communications, we may confirm a recipient’s email address through embedded links within the messages. We collect this information to gauge user interest and to enhance future user experiences.
Sharing and transfer of PII
We do not share personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards.
In some instances, Laurus Transaction Advisors may also share PII about you with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help fulfill your requests. Laurus Transaction Advisors may also store PII in a jurisdiction other than where you are based. By providing PII on our Web site, visitors are consenting to this transfer and/or storage of their data across borders.
Laurus Transaction Advisors may also disclose PII in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates, in order to respond to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where this is required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. These disclosures may also be needed for data privacy or security audits and/or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat. Laurus Transaction Advisors does not sell PII to any third parties. Also, Laurus Transaction Advisors will not transfer the PII you provide to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.
You have several choices regarding your use of our sites. In general, you are not required to submit any PII when you visit our web sites, but Laurus Transaction Advisors may require you to provide certain PII in order for you to receive additional information about our services and events. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will try to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.
Data security and integrity
Laurus Transaction Advisors has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect personal information from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Despite Laurus Transaction Advisors’ best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your personal information is limited to those who have a need to know. Those individuals who have access to the data are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information. We also make reasonable efforts to retain personal information only for so long as the information is necessary to comply with an individual’s request or until that person asks that the information be deleted.
