Portico Advisers, LLC (“Portico”) values your privacy. It is Portico’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website.
Like most website operators, Portico collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Portico’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Portico’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Portico may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Portico’s website choose to interact with Portico in ways that require Portico to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Portico gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up for a newsletter to provide an email address. Those who engage in transactions with Portico – by purchasing access to a report, for example – are asked to provide additional information, including as necessary the personal and financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, Portico collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with Portico. Portico does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.
Portico may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. For instance, Portico may monitor the most popular webpages on its site. Portico may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, Portico does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
Portico discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Portico’s behalf or to provide services available at Portico’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Portico’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Portico will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Portico discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when Portico believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Portico, third parties or the public at large. If you have supplied your email address, Portico may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Portico and our products. Portico takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
If Portico, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Portico goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, user information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Portico may continue to use your personal information as set forth in this policy.
