By using or accessing (the “Services”) in any manner, you acknowledge that you accept the practices and policies outlined in this Privacy Policy and you hereby consent that we will collect, use, and share your information as described herein. Your use of Westlake’s Services is at all times subject to this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time. If you use the Services after any changes to the Privacy Policy have been posted, that means you agree to all of the changes.

Information covered under this Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy covers our treatment of information (which may include personally identifiable information and any “personal identifiers” as that term is defined in the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) (“Personal Information”)) that we gather when you are accessing or using our Services. It does not apply to information obtained or disclosed in offline correspondence, through other personal contacts with Westlake representatives or through the practices of companies we don’t own or control, or people that we don’t manage. For clarity, this policy explicitly does not cover the privacy practices of any entity with whom Westlake (or any of our affiliates) has an investment relationship, even if you are able to access such entity’s website or service through a link on the Services.

We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 13. If you are under 13, please do not attempt to send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn that we have collected personal information from a child under age 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible.

Collection of Information

Information You Provide to Us:

Westlake does not collect any personally identifiable information about visitors to the publicly available areas of its website including names, addresses, phone numbers or social security numbers. If you submit an inquiry to [email protected] we may collect your email address for purposes of responding only.

Information Collected Automatically

We automatically receive and record information regarding your usage of the Service, which may include your IP address, geolocation data, device identification, “cookie” information, the type of browser and/or device you’re using to access our Services and the page or feature you requested. “Cookies” are identifiers we transfer to your browser or device that allow us to recognize your browser or device and tell us how and when pages and features in our Services are visited and by how many people. You may be able to change the preferences on your browser or device to prevent or limit your device’s acceptance of cookies, but this may prevent you from taking advantage of some of our features. If you click on a link to a third party website or service, a third party may also transmit cookies to you. Again, this Privacy Policy does not cover the use of cookies by any third parties, and we aren’t responsible for their privacy policies and practices.

Use of Information

Upon our collection of your Personal Information, Westlake may use and disclose such Personal Information internally and to its affiliates and service providers, separately or in combination with preexisting information, for the following business purposes:

  • To provide any requested information or services;
  • To troubleshoot problems with the Services;
  • To customize your experience on the Services;
  • To analyze how you and others use the Services;
  • To enforce any agreements, or compliance with this Privacy Policy;
  • To contact you with more information about Westlake;
  • To comply with law, court order or other legal process; or
  • To protect the rights, property, or safety of Westlake and its affiliates, our employees, our users, or others.

We do not sell or otherwise disclose your information to third parties for monetary or other valuable consideration. Please note that while we endeavor to protect the privacy of your Personal Information we collect, we cannot guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

No General Solicitation or General Advertising of Security Interests

The material contained our Services is intended only for financially sophisticated investors and is for their private use. The material contained in our Services does not constitute any offer or sale or any form of general solicitation or general advertising of interests in Westlake private investment funds. Such private investment funds rely on private placement exemptions to registration under the Securities Act of 1933 (or the securities laws of any states) and have not been registered as investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940. In addition, neither Westlake nor any affiliate thereof is registered with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission as an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.

Informational Purposes Only

Nothing on our Services is an offer or solicitation to buy or sell any security, and Westlake is not soliciting any action based on the Services. Nothing on the services is a recommendation that you purchase, sell or hold any security, or that you pursue any investment style or strategy. Nothing on the Services is intended to be, and you should not consider anything on the Services to be, investment, accounting, tax or legal advice. The past performance of any investment, investment strategy or investment style is not necessarily indicative of future performance.

Access and Deletion; Nondiscrimination

You may request the specific pieces of personal information we have collected from you and/or request that we delete the personal information that we have collected from you by contacting us at [email protected]. However, we may need to retain such information in certain circumstances if it is necessary to provide you with services you requested or if we use such data only for our internal analytical use. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. We will not deny you access to our Services, or provide you a lower quality of services if you exercise your rights under the CCPA.
