We may collect information from other sources such as Thomson-Reuters, Pitchbook, or other comparable websites or subscriptions, and Clients, and aggregate it with information you provide us.
CCR uses the information it collects about you in the following ways:

Certain information may be used to provide CCR’s Clients with information that may be of interest to them. This information may also be used for internal research, to determine the effectiveness of our messages and advertising, and/or for follow-up customer service.
The laws in some jursidictions, such as the European Economic Area (EEA), United Kingdom (UK), and Switzerland, require certain companies to state their legal basis for handling personal data as a “controller” (as defined in those laws). When that requirement applies to us, the legal basis depends on the information being collected and how it is used. Our legal basis for our processing in those cases is one of the following:
- The processing of personal data is necessary for us provide you with our services, including to operate the services, provide customer support and personalized features and to protect the safety and security of the services;
- The processing satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overridden by your interests), such as for research and development, to market and promote the services and to protect our legal rights and interests;
- You give us consent to process your personal data for a specific purpose; or
- We need to process your information to comply with a legal obligation.
If you have consented to our using information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time, but this will not affect any processing that has already taken place. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (e.g., our Clients) have a legitimate interest in doing so, you have the right to object to that use though, in some cases, this may limit your ability to use the services, and there may be cases where the use can continue despite your objection.
When we process personal information in our capacity as a “processor” for one of our Clients, the Client is responsible for establishing the legal basis for the processing.
We may share information regarding you with other companies, government agencies, or agents, if CCR believes it is necessary to prevent imminent harm, fraud, or other similar illegal activity, or to protect CCR’s interests, including but not limited to the security of the websites and users’ ability to access and use our websites.
We may also share your information with third parties if CCR enters into joint promotions, marketing, or events with a third party that we believe may be of interest to you. Transfers of your information to any such third parties will be limited to the purposes above and will never contain any payment information.
If you would like to opt out of such joint promotions, marketing, or events, see below.
CCR shares the personal information it collects about you in the following ways:
- Clients: We share personal information with our Clients.
- Third-Party Providers: We may share your information with third-party providers that provide services on our behalf or are our affiliates (direct and indirect), for further processing in accordance with the purposes for which such personal data was originally collected. These companies may support us in marketing, processing credit card payments, emails, or information technologies.
- De-identified Data: We may disclose or use information that has been aggregated (de-identified information) with other businesses for research purposes.
- As Required by Law and Safety: To comply with legal obligations, we may be required to share, transfer, or disclose the information in our databases and server logs to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, or for interacting with anti-fraud requirements. For example, we may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
- With Your Consent: Where we rely on your consent to share information, we may share that information consistent with your consent.
At any time, you may opt out of receiving marketing emails or messages from us and/or from receiving information regarding joint marketing, joint events or joint promotions. Either call us at (805) 214-1782 or contact us at Cadence Communications & Research, 3835 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd., Suite R 516, Westlake Village, CA 91362 or you may or select the unsubscribe link at the bottom of our marketing emails. We will remove your name from our marketing list within a reasonable period of time. You may receive another email confirming your request for removal. We may still send you emails of a non-marketing nature (i.e., if you make a future purchase). You may also opt out of having cookies and/or pop-up ads enabled on your browser. Please refer to your browser for further instructions.
When expressing an interest in obtaining additional information about the related applications and Services offered by Cadence or registering to use of its services, we may collect personal information, such as your name, email address or contact number, educational attainment directly from you or collect from available public sources, if you do not want your information used you may opt out by contacting email@example.com
When you make a purchase to access the Sites, or if you are otherwise a client, the information regarding your payment is encrypted for your security. We also store your information that we gather from the Sites on secure servers and we follow certain protocols and procedures to keep that information safe from unauthorized access. However, data transmission over the internet or mobile devices, including on the Sites, is not guaranteed to be entirely secure. While we use reasonable precautions to keep your information safe, we do not warranty, guarantee or represent that the security of the Sites, the servers on which we store information, or the databases we maintain are free from any risk or vulnerability. In addition, the information you provide CCR via the Sites may be intercepted during the transmission process or in the event that your browser or mobile device is not free from viruses or spyware. Similarly, any email you send us may be subject to interception so please do not include your credit card or payment information to us via email. We are not responsible for any such interceptions or any such viruses or spyware, and furthermore, we are not responsible for the actions or omissions of Third-parties.
Some of our Clients, the companies that provide services to us, and other third parties to which we provide information are based in other countries that may not have equivalent privacy and data protection laws to the country in which you reside. We take steps to protect this information. For example, when we share information that is regulated by the data protection laws of the EEA, UK, Switzerland, and certain other jurisdictions, we use of standard contractual data protection clauses approved by those jurisdictions (Standard Contractual Clauses) or other legal mechanisms for the transfer where appropriate. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to exercise any right you may have to see the mechanisms used for transfers of your personal data.
Information Transferred to Us
Our Clients and other third parties use various mechanisms for transferring personal information to us, including in some cases the Standard Contractual Clauses and the Data Privacy Framework.
We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) with respect to our compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF, UK DPF Extension, and Swiss-U.S. DPF.
In the context of an onward transfer of data, Cadence Communications & Research is responsible for the processing of personal information it receives under the EU-U.S. DPF, UK DPF Extension, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, and subsequently transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. Cadence Communications & Research has certain liability under the Principles if its agent processes such personal information in a manner inconsistent with the Principles, unless Cadence Communications & Research is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.
In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF, UK DPF Extension, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, Cadence Communications & Research commits to resolve DPF Principles-related complaints about our collection and use of your personal information. EU and UK individuals and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our handling of Transferred Personal Data (as defined above) that is transferred in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF and the UK DPF Extension, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF should first direct any questions, concerns or complaints to Cadence Communications & Research at email@example.com. We will attempt to answer your questions and satisfy your concerns in a timely and complete manner.
In compliance with the EU-U.S. DPF, UK DPF Extension, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF, Cadence Communications & Research commits to refer unresolved complaints concerning our handling of personal information received in reliance on the EU-U.S. DPF, UK DPF Extension, and the Swiss-U.S. DPF EU-U.S. to an independent dispute resolution mechanism operated by JAMS, an alternative dispute resolution provider based in the United States. Please contact Cadence Communications & Research first at firstname.lastname@example.org. If we do not respond to your complaint within 45 days, or if after discussing the matter with Cadence Communications & Research, your issue or complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction, you can visit JAMS at https://www.jamsadr.com/file-a-dpf-claim for more information or to file a complaint. The services of JAMS are provided at no cost to you.
In certain circumstances, if your complaint has not been resolved after first raising it with Cadence Communications & Research, following the JAMS procedure above, and taking certain other steps, complaints may be resolved through binding arbitration, as described in Annex I of the Data Privacy Framework.
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. By law we have to keep personal information about our customers (such as contact information, financial and transaction details) for tax purposes up to seven years. In some circumstances, we may aggregate your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Depending on which laws apply to particular situations, individuals in the European Economic Area, the UK, and some other jurisdictions have certain additional legal rights (including in some cases under the DPF Principles) to do the following with personal information we handle:
- obtain confirmation of whether we hold personal information about them;
- obtain a copy of the personal information, and in some cases, receive it in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, or have it transmitted to a third party in such form;
- update, correct, or delete the information;
- object to the use or disclosure of the information;
- receive certain details about our handling of the information;
- withdraw consent previously provided for the handling of the information (without affecting the lawfulness of prior use and disclosure of the information); and
- obtain a restriction on the use of the information.
For example, individuals whose personal information is subject to the GDPR have a right to opt out of our handling of their personal information for direct marketing purposes, as do individuals in many other jurisdictions.
Many of the rights described above are subject to limitations or exceptions under applicable law.
You can make a request by emailing us at email@example.com. Please indicate your name, the request you want to make, and the personal information covered by the request. We will respond to your request without undue delay within the time frame required by applicable law. CCR reserves the right to take reasonable steps to verify your identity prior to considering your request.
These rights are subject to certain limitations and conditions. For example, if you ask us to delete personal information that we must retain to comply with a legal obligation, we will need to refuse to delete such information.
Where legally required, if we do not grant your request, we will explain your legal rights, our reason for not granting the request, and any recourse you may have.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority in your jurisdiction. However, we encourage you to contact us first at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can do our best to resolve your concerns.
The Sites are directed to adults and we do not market to children. We do not intend to gather any information from children under the age of 13. If you believe that we may have any information regarding a person under the age of 13, please reach us at the contact information provided below.
In addition, if an individual is under 18, s/he should only use the Sites under the guidance of a parent or guardian.
Your information may be shared with Third-parties that are interested in advertising on the Site (“Third-parties”). Some Third-parties, as well as we and our service providers, may collect information through using cookies or web beacons.
Cookies are pieces of data that are stored in your computer system after you have visited a particular website and provided information to the website (either information that you provided such as a preference or information that is provided by your browsing system). Every time you go back to the website, the browser sends the cookie to the server to notify the website of your previous activity on the website.
Web beacons (also referred to as tracking pixels, web bugs, pixel tags, 1×1 gifs, Internet tags, page tags, and clear gifs) are graphic images on a website or in an email that track when a website page or an email has been read, by whom, and from which computer. They can also track when an email has been forwarded to another user or if a webpage is copied to another website.
The Third-parties may use the cookies or web beacons to collect information regarding whether or not you click on their advertisement and/or the number of Site users who click on their advertisement(s). The Sites’ service providers may also use these cookies or web beacons, as may we. We may also use other methods of automatic collection such as IP addresses, browsers, and computer identification numbers to determine preferences and potential fraudulent activity. We also may use the information to measure which pages on the Sites are receiving the most traffic, as well as your preferences on the Sites. We may keep a log of the web beacons and data that they provide. Note that if you would like to disable your web browser from accepting cookies, you may do so. This may impair some functionality of the Sites.
We may collect data using Google Analytics about your traffic via Google advertising cookies and identifiers, in addition to data collected through a standard Google Analytics implementation.
We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites that may be linked to this site or of any third-party advertisers.
We will try our best to respond to any emails or messages you send to CCR through our websites or otherwise. We do not want to receive any proprietary or confidential information, suggestions, materials, or ideas via our websites or via email. To the extent that you decide to send us anything via our websites or via email, any such ideas, suggestions, submissions, feedback, or other information will become the property of CCR. By sending us such information via our websites or email, you are agreeing to fully release all intellectual property rights, proprietary claims, and rights of publicity with respect to such information. You are also granting us a perpetual, royalty-free license to use such information provided. In the event that any such information you send to us belongs to a third party and you have not received written permission from that third party to send such information to us, then you agree to indemnify, defend, and hold us, our officers, directors, employees, agents, investors, consultants, shareholders, parent corporations, administrators, affiliates, divisions, subsidiaries, predecessor and successor corporations, and assigns (collectively, the ” Indemnitees”) harmless from any and all claims, damages, expenses, costs (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) and liabilities (including settlements) brought or asserted by any third party against any of the Indemnitees arising out of or in connection with such information.
Any information that you post on the Sites or that you provide to CCR to post on the Sites will be stored by CCR’s server. Also, any items you post on the Sites (i.e., reviews, etc.) may be picked up by search engines like Google, Yahoo, etc.; however, only your login name and any information you have chosen to post will be displayed on pages on the Sites which may be subject to such searches. In other words, other than your login name and the information you have chosen to post, none of the personal information you enter when you register as a client will be searchable or accessible on the Sites. Please note that even if you may opt to post something anonymously, CCR will still be able to determine that you made the posting. If you engage in illegal conduct on the Sites, whether anonymously, using your login name or using your real name, CCR may have to give your personal information to law enforcement if it is requested through a valid subpoena or similar legal document, or we may choose to do so voluntarily as appropriate.
In the event that CCR undergoes a change in control, wherein its assets are transferred in a merger, sale of company assets, or acquisition of the company or its assets, or other transaction, then personal information we hold may be transferred as part of the change in control. Similarly, in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, insolvency, or receivership, personal information may be transferred to another party.
In addition, CCR reserves the right to transfer, disseminate, or disclose personal data and other information stored in CCR’s system in connection with or during any merger, raising of funds, financing, loans, bankruptcy, acquisition, dissolution, deal, transaction, or other proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or assignment of all or a portion of CCR’s business or assets to a different entity or in connection with a change in control.
In the event that you use third-party social media websites, applications, or plugins (“Social Media Sites”) to access our websites, we may receive information regarding you, that you have provided to the Social Media Sites. We may use this information for marketing purposes and to provide you with information that we believe you may be interested in receiving.
In addition, if you use Social Media Sites to post content related to CCR (photos, videos, descriptions, comments, hashtags using CCR, etc.) on your Social Media account, you are agreeing that by using the hashtag using CCR or any similar term or phrase denoting CCR, you are granting CCR an irrevocable and perpetual royalty-free, fully paid, non-exclusive, transferable right to use your CCR-tagged content on the Social Media Sites in any manner that CCR deems fit in its sole discretion, including without limitation on our websites, on CCR’s own social media sites, and for CCR’s marketing, promotional material, advertisements, and any other content. You further grant CCR the right to use, reproduce, display, distribute, transmit, alter, edit, create derivative works from, and/or combine with other materials your content on the Social Media Sites. You further grant CCR the right to use your Social Media Sites’ username, true name, image, likeness, caption, text, photography, location, or other identifying information in connection with the content on the Social Media Sites. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold the Indemnitees harmless from any liability related in any way to CCR’s use of the content on the Social Media Sites.
