This website is owned and operated by ABS Capital Partners (“ABS Capital,” “we” or “us”). We recognize that you are concerned about your personal privacy. This Privacy Policy describes the ways in which we collect, use, and disclose information about you in association with your use of our website (www.abscapital.com (the “Site”)).

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information that identifies, relates to, describes, or could reasonably be linked directly or indirectly to you.

This Privacy Policy is current as of the effective date set forth below. ABS Capital may change this Policy from time-to-time to reflect changes in privacy practices. By accessing the Site, you consent to the processing of your information as set forth in this Privacy Policy, now and as amended by us.

Information We Collect

You may access the Site without providing any personal information (although information may still be collected automatically). However, we may ask you to provide personal information in order to access certain features or content, including but not limited to, email newsletters and updates, or providing credentials to access the ABS Capital Connect Portal.

We collect certain personal information directly from you, such as your name, contact information (e.g., postal and email address), account credentials, contents of communications, and any other information you voluntarily provide. We collect this information when you create an account or contact us with questions, comments, or requests.

We and our service providers may automatically collect information using cookies, which are small text files that the Site saves and accesses on your computer using your web browser, and similar data collection technologies, such as pixel tags, and web beacons (collectively, “Cookies”). The Cookies collect information such as your IP address, general geographic location, browser type, ISP, device information (e.g., the model and ID of your device), information about your activities on the Site (e.g., pages you view within the Site, pages you view just before and after you access the Site, and the search terms you enter on the Site). Some of the Cookies we and our service providers use collect information about your online activities over time and across various websites. We use Cookies to remember your settings and preferences, learn about your interests, personalize your experience with the Site, analyze Site usage, and improve the Site. You may be able to reject Cookies by following directions in your web browser’s “help” settings. If you reject cookies, you may still access the Site. However, some functionality and features may be limited or unavailable.

We also obtain certain information about you from third parties, including publically available information. You may choose to interact with social media tools (e.g., like buttons, share buttons, or login services) on the Site or you may choose to interact with us via social media. When you do so, we collect information from your social media account, such as your friends or contacts, profile picture, birthdate, gender, or other profile-related information and any other information you have opted to share via the platform. The information we obtain from such third-party services depends on your account/privacy settings with those third parties and the third parties’ privacy policies.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We may share personal information with our affiliates (the ABS group of companies); with our third-party service providers, vendors, and contractors for the purposes specified in this Policy; when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or the integrity of the Site; to ensure the safety of you or others; or to detect, prevent, or respond to fraud, violations of our Terms and Conditions of Use of the Site or other violations of law; and as required by law.

We may share information that does not reasonably identify you with third parties for any purpose.

If you visit our Site from outside the United States, please note that U.S. law may not provide the same level of protection for personal information that is provided in your local jurisdiction. Your personal information may be available to the U.S. government or its agencies under a lawful order made in the United States.

California Privacy Rights

If you reside in California and we have collected personal information regarding you, you may have certain rights with respect to that information. To exercise those rights, we may require that you provide additional information to confirm your identity. Requests to exercise rights must be submitted to us in writing at abscapital@abscapital.com or by phone at 410-246-5600.

  • Right to access. You may be entitled to request additional information from us, including information about categories of personal information we have collected, the categories of sources from which we collected the information, the purposes for which we collect and share personal information, the specific pieces of personal information we have collected, and the categories of parties with which we share information.
  • Right to opt out of sharing. You may have the right to request that we stop disclosing personal information to certain third parties for monetary or other consideration.

Do Not Track

We do not currently respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information across the networks of websites and online services in which we participate. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy. Visit www.allaboutdnt.org for more information on this developing area.

Security

We employ administrative, technical, and physical safeguards designed to protect the information collected through the Site. However, no information system can be 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the absolute security of your information. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to the Site or to ABS Capital over networks that we do not control, including Internet and wireless networks.

This website may contain links or may link you to other sites that are not owned or controlled by ABS Capital. For example, we provide links to the websites owned and operated by current or historical portfolio companies and links to sources of news articles that we post under our media tab. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. Third parties may use your personal information in accordance with their privacy policies, which may differ from ours. We recommend that you carefully review third parties’ privacy policies to understand their privacy and information usage practices. Please refer to our Terms and Conditions for further details.
