Your privacy is important to OEP Capital Advisors L.P. and our affiliates (together, ‘OEP’, ‘our’, ‘us’, ‘we’ or ‘company’). To better protect your privacy, we are providing information explaining our online information practices.
 
This Privacy Policy describes how we gather and use information for visitors of this site. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. 
 
For the purposes of applicable EU data protection legislation, OEP Capital Advisors L.P. will be a data controller of any personal data collected by us. If you have any questions regarding our use of your personal data, or this Privacy Policy, please contact Dora Stojka at privacy@oneequity.com.

We rely on various legal bases under applicable EU data protection legislation in order to process your personal information, as set out below in Section 2 of this Privacy Policy. We use the personal information we collect to operate our business and provide you with the services and products we offer and perform essential business operations. We do not collect any special categories of personal information about you, nor any information about criminal convictions and offences.

If we require your personal information due to a legal requirement or obligation or in order to perform a contract with you, we will make you aware of this at the time we collect your personal data, and the possible consequences of you failing to provide this personal data (e.g., we may require your passport details to verify your identity for the purposes of anti-money laundering regulations and failure to provide this information means that we cannot provide our services or products to you). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

Further information about the legal bases under which we process your personal information is included in Section 2 “Why we use your personal information”.

7. YOUR RIGHTS

You have the right to access and control, in certain ways, the personal information we hold about you. To exercise these rights and controls, please contact privacy@oneequity.com.

Access: You have the right to ask for a copy of the personal information that we hold about you free of charge, however we may charge a ‘reasonable fee’, if we think that your request is excessive, to help us cover the costs of locating the information you have requested.

Correction: You may notify us of changes to such your personal information if it is inaccurate or it needs to be updated.

Deletion: If you think that we shouldn’t be holding or processing your personal information any more, you may request that we delete it. Please note that this may not always be possible due to legal obligations.

Restrictions on use: You may request that we stop processing your personal information (other than storing it), if: (i) you contest the accuracy of it (until the accuracy is verified); (ii) you believe the processing is against the law; (iii) you believe that we no longer need your data for the purposes for which it was collected, but you still need your data to establish or defend a legal claim; or (iv) you object to the processing, and we are verifying whether our legitimate grounds to process your personal information, override your own rights.

Object: You have the right to object to processing, including: (i) for direct marketing; (ii) for research or statistical purposes; or (iii) where processing is based on legitimate interests.

Portability: If you wish to transfer your personal information to another organisation (and certain conditions are satisfied), you may ask us to do so, and we will send it directly if we have the technical means.

Withdrawal of consent: If you previously gave us your consent (by a clear affirmative action) to allow us to process your personal information for a particular purpose, but you no longer wish to consent to us doing so, you can contact us to let us know that you withdraw that consent.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.

8. NOTIFICATION OF CHANGES

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Policy from time to time by updating this Privacy Policy. If we decide to change our Privacy Policy, we will post those changes so our users are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances, if any, we disclose it. If at any point we decide to collect personal information or use any collected information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify applicable users. We will use information only in accordance with the Privacy Policy under which the information was collected.

9. ۰ͼ US

If you have any questions or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please contact privacy@oneequity.com.

Privacy notice for suppliers, service providers and other business partners of ۰ͼ Europe GmbH

For ۰ͼ Europe GmbH (hereinafter "OEP") the protection of your personal data and your privacy is an important concern. The purpose of this privacy notice is to inform you which personal data of our suppliers, service providers, consultants and other (potential) business partners or their contact persons (hereinafter collectively "business partners") we process and which rights you are entitled to in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act with regard to the processing of your personal data.

1.                   Responsibility for the processing of personal data

۰ͼ Europe GmbH, Neue Mainzer Str. 84, 60311 Frankfurt am Main, Germany, is the controller for the processing of your personal data for the purposes set out under section 3.

2.                  Personal data processed

We process the following categories of personal data of our business partners:

  • Professional contact and organisational data (e.g. name, title, business address, business telephone number and email address, job title/position, bank details if necessary);
  • Communications data (content and traffic data, particularly emails);
  • other information that you provide to us or that we become aware of in the course of our business relationship and communications (including information that we obtain in the course of M&A transactions about persons related to the relevant target company, e.g. as employees or business partners).

3.                  Purposes of the processing

We process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • Managing the receipt of goods (e.g. IT equipment and consumables) and services (e.g. consultancy services);
  • Management, optimisation and processing of our business relationships with our business partners as well as the initiation or establishment of new business relations;
  • Prevention and investigation of fraud or other criminal activities;
  • Security of our IT systems, architecture and networks;
  • Compliance with legal obligations of OEP and other companies of the OEP Group (including compliance with orders of public authorities) as well as for legal and tax advice.

4.                 Legal basis of the processing

We process your personal data on the basis of the following legal grounds:

  • for the performance of the contract concluded with you or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract (Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR);
  • to comply with legal obligations to which we are subject (e.g. to comply with tax obligations; Article 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR); and
  • to the extent the processing is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party and these interests are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), in particular to enable cooperation with other companies within the OEP Group, to maintain and safeguard business operations and company processes, to protect OEP and our employees, to perform contracts with a business partner with whom you are employed, and to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

5.                  Recipients of the personal data

We will transfer your personal data to the following categories of recipients and grant them access to the extent necessary in each case and, where necessary, on the basis of a data processing agreement concluded between us and the recipient:

  • Employees of OEP;
  • Other companies of the OEP Group;
  • Technical service providers (particularly IT system providers and cloud service providers);
  • Legal and tax consulting firms;
  • Courts and other public authorities;
  • Third parties in the event of any contemplated or actual reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or part of the business or assets of OEP (including any insolvency or similar proceedings), if applicable; and
  • Other third parties and service providers, to the extent this is necessary in individual cases.

6.                 Place of processing of personal data

Your personal data will be processed within the European Union ("EU") and the European Economic Area ("EEA") as well as outside the EU/EEA in so-called third countries by the parties specified in section 5, in particular by service providers in the USA. In doing so, we take into account contractual confidentiality and non-disclosure obligations as well as the applicable data protection laws. We will not disclose your personal data to parties who are not authorized to process them.

Please note that there may be differences with regard to the applicable data protection laws between the respective member states of the EU/EEA and all other countries. The level of protection of personal data, especially when processed outside the EU/EEA, may therefore be lower than within the Federal Republic of Germany. If processing takes place outside the EU or EEA, we will ensure that the recipient of your personal data guarantees an adequate level of protection (in particular by concluding the so-called EU standard contractual clauses and, if necessary, by implementing additional protective measures).

7.                  Data sources

We process personal data that we have received in the course of our business relationship from you, the company that employs you, other business partners or third parties, or from publicly accessible sources.

8.                 Retention periods

We store your personal data only as long as it is necessary for the purpose pursued with the respective processing and as long as we are legally obliged to store it (e.g. due to retention obligations under commercial or tax law).

9.                 Rights of the data subject

Under the applicable data protection laws and provided that the relevant statutory prerequisites are met, you as a data subject have various rights against any controller, e.g. a right to request from us access to your personal data. Furthermore, these rights may include a right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing as well as the right to data portability.

Where we process your data on the basis of the legitimate interests of OEP or a third party, you have the right to object to such processing on grounds relating to your particular situation at any time. In this case, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You can exercise these rights by sending a request to Dunja Mauser, who can be contacted by email at dunja.mauser@oneequity.com.

Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of your personal data with the competent data protection authority.

Wir weisen darauf hin, dass zwischen den jeweiligen Mitgliedstaaten der EU/des EWR sowie sämtlichen anderen Ländern im Einzelnen Unterschiede hinsichtlich der geltenden Vorschriften zum Datenschutz bestehen können.

Nach den geltenden Vorschriften zum Datenschutz haben Sie als von der Verarbeitung betroffene Person verschiedene Rechte gegenüber jedem Verantwortlichen, soweit die jeweiligen gesetzlichen Voraussetzungen vorliegen, wie z.B. einen Auskunftsanspruch über den Umgang mit Ihren personenbezogenen Daten. Weiterhin stehen Ihnen unter Umständen ein Recht auf Berichtigung, Löschung oder Einschränkung der Verarbeitung ebenso wie ein Recht auf Datenübertragbarkeit zu.

Sofern wir Ihre Daten auf Basis der berechtigten Interessen der OEP oder eines Dritten verarbeiten, haben Sie das Recht, gegen diese Verarbeitung aus Gründen, die sich aus Ihrer besonderen Situation ergeben, jederzeit Widerspruch einzulegen. In diesem Fall verarbeiten wir Ihre personenbezogenen Daten nicht mehr, es sei denn, wir können zwingende schutzwürdige Gründe für die Verarbeitung nachweisen, die Ihre Interessen, Rechte und Freiheiten überwiegen, oder die Verarbeitung dient der Geltendmachung, Ausübung oder Verteidigung von Rechtsansprüchen.

Sie können diese Rechte durch einen Antrag an Dunja Mauser geltend machen, die Sie per E-Mail unter dunja.mauser@oneequity.com erreichen können.

Ferner haben Sie das Recht, eine Beschwerde über den Umgang mit Ihren personenbezogenen Daten bei der zuständigen Datenschutzbehörde zu erheben.
