For clarity, this Privacy Policy does not apply to the information we collect from our investors. If you are an investor with East Rock, please see our Privacy Notice separately distributed to you in connection with your investment to understand how we handle information we collect about our investors.

Information We Collect: Your provision of your Personally Identifiable Information to us is completely voluntary.

JURISDICTION SPECIFIC NOTICES AND RIGHTS

California

California law provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) defines “personal information” as information that identifies, relates to, describes, references, or is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household. This section describes the rights that California residents have and explains how to exercise those rights, subject in all cases to any limitations set forth in the CCPA. Please refer to the section(s) entitled “Information We Collect” and “Use and Sharing of Information” above for more detail about the types of information collected, the purposes for which and sources from where we collect personal information, and the third parties with whom we share personal information.

California Specific Rights, Choices, and Opt-Outs: The CCPA provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. The subsections that follow describe the rights that you have under CCPA if you are a California resident and explain how you can exercise those rights.

  1. Right to Know About Personal Information Collected, Disclosed, or Sold. You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection, use, disclosure, or sale of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Your Right to Know or Delete), and subject to certain limitations that we describe below, we will disclose such information to you. You have the right to request any or all of the following:
  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The categories of personal information about you that we have sold or disclosed for business purposes and the categories of third parties to whom the information is sold or disclosed.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you.
  1. Deletion Request Rights. You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising  Right to Know or Delete), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.  However, we may retain personal information that has been de-identified or aggregated. Furthermore, we may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) in order to perform certain actions set forth under the CCPA, such as detecting security incidents and protecting against fraudulent or illegal activity.
  2. Exercising Your Right to Know or Delete. To exercise your right to know or delete, please submit a request to us by emailing us at legal@eastrockcap.com.

Only you, or a person or business entity registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf (an “authorized agent”), may make the requests set forth above. The request should include your contact information and describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it. In addition, you should provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify that you are the person about whom we collected the personal information or an authorized representative of that person. For more information about verification, see Response Timing and Format immediately below.

  1. Response Timing and FormatWe will confirm receipt of your verifiable consumer request within ten (10) days and endeavor to respond within forty-five (45) days of its receipt.  If we require more time (up to 90 days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing. In order to protect the security of your personal information, we will not honor a request if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. The method used to verify your identity will depend on the type, sensitivity, and value of the information, including the risk of harm to you posed by any authorized access or deletion. Generally speaking, verification will be performed by matching the identifying information provided by you to the personal information that we already have. Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding our receipt of your request (and will not be made more than twice in a 12-month period). If we cannot comply with a request, or cannot fully comply with a request, the response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply.
  2. Personal Information Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In Rights. In the preceding twelve (12) months, we have not sold personal information as we understand that term to be defined under the CCPA and its implementing regulations.
  3. Non-Discrimination. We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.

Nevada

If you are a Nevada resident, you have the right to request that we do not sell (as defined by N.R.S. 603A) certain personal information that we have collected, or may collect, from you.  We do not “sell” your personal information as defined by N.R.S. 603A. However, if you would like to make such a request you may do so by contacting us at legal@eastrockcap.com.
