EW Healthcare Partners collects and processes Personal Data (which we define below) about you from your use of this website and through other means, such as by contacting us directly by phone or email or more generally in the course of operating our business. This Privacy Notice explains how we collect Personal Data, how we use your Personal Data and how you can assert your rights in accordance with applicable data protection laws. This Privacy Notice does not address our privacy practices with respect to any Personal Data we may collect from an investor in the funds that we sponsor or manage. We address these practices in separate notices to investors as required by law.
“Personal Data” is any information relating to you or that we can otherwise link to you or your household.
1. What is Personal Data and what Personal Data do we collect?
The Personal Data we collect on this website may include your name, email address, residential address, IP address, telephone number, login information for our investor portal and other contact information. Some of this information we will only have access to if you provide it to us. When you visit our website, we may collect information about you when you enter and browse our website through the use of “cookies,” web server logs and other electronic tools. This information may include, without limitation, the number and frequency of your visits to our website, the websites accessed before and after you visit our website, the internet browser used by you and your IP address.
We collect Personal Data that you voluntarily provide to us, such as through “contact us” forms you choose to submit on our website to obtain more information about EW Healthcare Partners or our funds. We may also collect Personal Data through the use of “cookies” on our website, in the ordinary course of evaluating service providers, vendors and investments, in marketing our funds or from publicly available or accessible directories, databases and agencies. We may combine personal information that you provide to us with information that we collect from or about you from publicly available sources. This will include information collected in an online or offline context.
2. How do we collect Personal Data?
In addition to Personal Data collected from your use of our website, we may also collect Personal Data regarding our business contacts, partners, current and prospective investors, vendors and other contacts. We will collect some of this Personal Data if you contact our office or employees directly.
We use the Personal Data we collect from you on our website for communication purposes, such as, but not limited to (i) sending you information about EW Healthcare Partners and/or our investment funds and (ii) maintaining our list of contacts. We use the Personal Data we collect from you through other means for business purposes, such as, but not limited to (i) communicating with service providers and vendors (ii) researching investment opportunities and (iii) managing our investments. No automated decision-making, including profiling, is used when processing your personal information.
3. How do we use your Personal Data?
We process your Personal Data collected from your use of this website for certain business reasons, including communication and marketing purposes. We process your Personal Data collected by other means for other business reasons, including managing our business and our funds’ investments.
4. Why do we process your Personal Data?
In accordance with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and Cayman Islands Data Protection Law, we rely on our legitimate business interests (including, but not limited to, internal administrative purposes, direct marketing or conducting market research), contractual obligations, legal obligations or your consent in maintaining business relationships, communicating about EW Healthcare Partners’ business and performing other business services as the basis for collecting and processing your Personal Data.
5. What legal basis do we use to process your Personal Data?
You are not required to submit information to us through this website. However, we may collect “cookies”, which may be automatically collected and will not necessarily require your consent. For our service providers, vendors, investors and other contacts, it is necessary to provide some Personal Data in order for us to do business with you.
6. Is it necessary to provide Personal Data?
We will not share your Personal Data with third parties except as permitted or required by law or regulation and to affiliates and service providers, including in the context of those third parties acting as data processors on our behalf and with whom we have a need to share such information. For example, we may use a customer relationship manager software platform to organize our business contacts, and your Personal Data may reside on that software. Where relevant, we will ensure that contractual safeguards are implemented with these third-party data processors to ensure the protection of your Personal Data.
7. With whom do we share your Personal Data?
EW Healthcare Partners does not sell or transfer Personal Data to affiliates or third parties for value and does not intend to do so in the future. We will amend this Privacy Notice promptly upon any changes to this policy.
Your Personal Data will be retained for as long as you are one of our business contacts, or longer as required by applicable law. Your Personal Data may be deleted when it is no longer relevant or when you withdraw consent (pursuant to the rights detailed directly below which may be exercised by using the contact information contained at the end of this Privacy Notice), again within the parameters of applicable law. If we send you emails and/or market to you, you may unsubscribe at any time from communications from us, and we will cease sending you further communications.
8. How long do we retain your Personal Data?
Your rights described in this Privacy Notice are applicable only if you reside in a jurisdiction where the provision of such rights is required by the data protection and privacy laws of the governing regulatory authority, as outlined further below. These rights may be limited and subject to further legal requirements.
9. What are my rights with respect to my Personal Data?
California Consumer Privacy Act, 2020
Cayman Islands Data Protection Law, 2017
This website and the services offered by EW Healthcare Partners are not intended for minors and EW Healthcare Partners does not knowingly collect Personal Data relating to minors and in the event of any inadvertent collection of Personal Data related to a minor, EW Healthcare Partners expects to delete such Personal Data upon notice, but in any event, will comply with any provision of applicable data protection laws. The determination of whether an individual is a minor varies by jurisdiction, and may be as low as 13 years of age in some jurisdictions; however, EW Healthcare Partners has determined to extend the protection afforded to minors to individuals less than 18 years of age.
11. What security do we have in place over your Personal Data?
EW Healthcare Partners has implemented appropriate procedural and technical security measures to help protect your Personal Data against loss and to safeguard your Personal Data against access by unauthorized persons. We consider the protection of sensitive information to be a sound business practice and a top priority, and to that end we employ physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your Personal Data. Although we employ certain safeguards to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of any information or data transmitted to or through our site; any transmission of information or data by you to or through this site is at your sole risk.
If you would like to request more information regarding the procedural and technical safeguards we have in place, please contact us at the email address below.
12. What are our procedures in the event of a breach to your Personal Data?
Depending on the applicable law, EW Healthcare Partners may be required to notify you or the appropriate authority in the event of a breach. Various jurisdictions that have enacted data protection laws may require different procedures in the event of a breach of your Personal Data, including with regard to notification to certain regulators or agencies and the data subject; in each case and in the event of such a breach to your Personal Data, we will follow the laws of the applicable jurisdiction.
