Thank you for visiting our website. This Privacy Policy describes the information and data collection, storage, and use practices and policies of Lotus Private Equity Group, LLC (“Lotus Private Equity Group,” “we,” “our,” “us”) on the websites at www.LotusPE.us (along with all subdomains, collectively, the “Website”).

This Privacy Policy is only applicable to the Website and not to any other websites that you may be able to access from the Website, each of which may have data collection, storage, and use practices and policies that differ materially from this Privacy Policy. When you leave the Website via a link to another website, you are subject to that website’s terms and policies.

SECTION 1. CONSENT

1.1 By using the Website, engaging with our services and products (the “Services”), or submitting personal information through the Website, you expressly consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information according to this Privacy Policy.

SECTION 2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

2.1 In addition to any data that you choose to submit to the Website, Lotus Private Equity Group and its third-party service providers may use a variety of methods to collect certain information passively or automatically whenever you visit the Website.

A. Types of Information Collected: In using the Website, you may be required to submit data that can be used to identify you as an individual (“PII”). PII data may include contact information (name, email addresses, mailing address, phone number), financial information (account or credit card number and billing address, collectively “Financial Data”); and demographic information (such as age, or zip code). Any further information that you voluntarily submit through email, forms, comments, surveys, or other means may also be collected as PII.

We may automatically track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our Website: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the Website; and (4) types of web browsers used to access the Website (collectively “Non-PII”). Non-PII is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for improving your experience on the Website.

B. Uses of Information Collected: Lotus Private Equity Group uses PII to respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services and products Lotus Private Equity Group thinks may be of interest to you, and otherwise personalize your experience with www.LotusPE.us, among other reasons. Lotus Private Equity Group does not sell or lease your PII to others.

C. Technology We May Use: Cookies, Web Beacons, and Clear Gifs: Cookies and web beacons are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. Lotus Private Equity Group collects information through cookies and web beacons about your web browsing activities such as the address of the page you are visiting, the address of the referrer page you previously visited, the time you are viewing the page, your browsing environment, and your display settings. We may use cookies and web beacons on our Website for the following purposes: understanding traffic patterns and the number of visitors to the Website and other websites that we partner with; understanding how you use and interact with the Website; improving Lotus Private Equity Group’s services and products; optimizing your experience on the Website; providing anonymous individual or aggregate auditing, research, modeling, and reporting for our advertisers and other partners; storing your password so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit the Website; providing you with relevant advertising and content; and managing our Website.

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, used to track the online movements of Website visitors. Some content on the Website may be served by third-party content providers and may also use cookies, pixel tags, or other similar tracking technologies to automatically collect data about you, both on the Website and throughout the Internet. We do not control the technologies of those third parties. Data collection and use by those third parties is subject to the privacy policies of those third parties. It is up to you to review the terms and policies of those third parties.

Lotus Private Equity Group does not use cookies, web beacons, or clear gifs to collect or store any PII.

D. Sharing of Personal Information: Lotus Private Equity Group may share PII with Lotus Private Equity Group affiliates, advertisers, and third parties contracting with Lotus Private Equity Group to provide services to you. The other parties with whom we share PII may send information to you about other products or services. We do not share your Financial Data with these third parties. We may share Financial Data with business partners who assist us by performing core services (such as hosting, billing, fulfillment, or data storage and security) related to our operation of the Website and provision of services. Those business partners agree to uphold the same standards of security and confidentiality described in this Privacy Policy, and they will only use your Financial Data to carry out their specific business obligations to Lotus Private Equity Group.

If you do not want us to share your PII with any third parties, please email us at info@LotusPE.us. If you wish to remove your data from our collection system or wish to unsubscribe from our marketing lists, complete the relevant form or forms here.

If all or some of our assets are acquired by another company, including through a sale in connection with a bankruptcy, that company will possess the information collected by us, and it will assume the rights and obligations regarding your PII as described in this Privacy Policy. We may disclose PII or other data to comply with the law or legal requirements, enforce or apply our Terms of Service and other agreements, or protect our rights, our property, and the safety of our users or others.

Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, Lotus Private Equity Group reserves the right to use and disclose to third parties Non-PII for any purpose.

E. Interest-Based Ads: We may also share Non-PII with advertisers and other third parties who may use it for advertising purposes, including to serve targeted advertising on non-affiliated third-party websites. Some of those ads may be personalized, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on information about your online activities on the Website or other websites over time. For example, anonymous information collected across multiple websites may enable the ad network to predict your preferences and show you ads that are likely to be of interest to you. Please note that we do not share any information that identifies you personally with the third-party service providers who serve ads on our behalf. To opt-out of these types of ads, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) for information about how to opt-out of interest-based advertising by their members.

See http://www.networkadvertising.org for general information about the NAI and http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp for the opt-out page. You may also visit http://www.aboutads.info/consumers/ to learn about interest-based advertising and how to opt-out from online behavioral ads served by some or all participating companies.
