Any such offer or solicitation will be made only through a private offering pursuant to a confidential private placement memorandum and related subscription documents. Although this website may include investment-related information, nothing on this website is a recommendation that you purchase, sell or hold any security or other investment, or that you pursue any investment style or strategy. Any investments referred to on this website are included as representative investments only and are not necessarily reflective of the overall investment performance of LGP. Nothing on this website is intended to be, and you should not consider anything on this website to be, investment, accounting, tax or legal advice.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Personally Identifiable Information
If you proactively submit information to us through this website, we may record and use any personally identifiable information that you provide, such as your name, telephone number and e-mail address. This information may be used to fulfill your request or for internal business purposes. At this time, LGP does not provide any such information to affiliates or third parties.
We may use service providers to operate our website and employ other third parties to perform work on our behalf, such as hosting this website or operating our investor portal. These persons may have access to the personally identifiable information you submit through this website, but only for the purpose of performing their duties in connection with this website.
Keeping Your Personal Information Secure
We will take appropriate technical and organizational measures to keep your information confidential and secure in accordance with our internal procedures covering the storage, access and disclosure of information. Information may be kept on our information technology systems, in the information technology systems of our third-party service providers, or in paper files.
How Long Do We Keep Your Personal Information?
If we collect any personal information, we will retain such personal information for the period necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purposes of collecting such personal information. For example, we may retain personal information we obtain from you when we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so, or to fulfill an ongoing contract with you or your employer.
If we collect any personal information when we have no ongoing legitimate business need or legal obligation to process your personal data, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal data has been stored in back-up archives), we will store your personal data securely and isolate it from further processing until deletion is possible.
What Rights Do California Residents Have?
Under the CCPA, residents domiciled in California have certain rights with respect to their personal information. In particular, you may have the right to:
- Request that we disclose, free of charge, the categories and specifics of any “personal information,” as defined under the CCPA (“PI”), we collect about California residents (and/or, if applicable, sell or otherwise disclose to a third party for business purposes).
- Choose to opt-out of the sale of any personal information we collect. Currently, however, we do not sell personal information.
- Request that we delete any PI we have collected. Following our verification of the request, we will comply with the request and delete any or all the PI in our possession that we collected from the California resident and/or any or all such PI in the possession of our service providers, unless otherwise restricted by law or regulation.
Non-Discrimination for Exercising Your CCPA Right.
We follow the requirements of California Civil Code §1798.125, and will not discriminate against any consumer who exercises the rights under the CCPA.
