We understand your privacy and security concerns regarding the information we collect, use and disclose to third parties for the purpose of allowing us to provide and offer our products and services to you. To notify you about our practices, we have developed this Privacy Policy. Any personally identifiable information collected on this Site is considered Personal Information (“Personal Information”) and will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Burford is firmly committed to protecting your privacy and the confidentiality of your Personal Information. For purposes of this privacy policy, “Burford” means Burford Capital Limited and its controlled affiliates.

 

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Burford is committed to protecting the privacy of Internet users who visit our web site (the “Site”).

The information gathered by Burford from this Site falls into two categories: (1) information voluntarily supplied by visitors to our Site and (2) tracking information gathered as visitors navigate through our Site.

 

INFORMATION VOLUNTARILY PROVIDED BY YOU

When using this Site, you may choose to provide us with information to help us serve your needs. For example, you may provide us your e-mail address or other contact details to request information or materials. Any Personal Information that you send us will be used only for the purpose indicated on the Site or in this policy. We may also use your information to provide you with information about other services and products that are offered by Burford that we think may be of interest to you. If you do not wish to be contacted by us, please see the section titled “Opting-Out” below.

 

COOKIES

This Site may use cookies. Cookies are pieces of information stored by your web browser on behalf of a web site.

If this Site uses cookies, certain pages of the Site may not function properly if the cookies are turned off. Please consult your web browser’s Help documentation for more information about how to turn cookies on and off for your browser. The information that may be maintained by a cookie is used by Burford solely to help us manage the Site and our business. We discuss below the strict limitations we place on any use of Personal Information.

 

DISCUSSION FORUM AND CHAT ROOM USE

If you participate in a Burford discussion forum or chat room, you should be aware that the information you provide there will be made available to Burford employees and other users of the service. Also, please recognise that the individual forums and chat rooms may have additional rules and conditions. Each participant (including any Burford employee or representative)’s opinion on a forum or chat room is his or her own and should not be considered as reflecting the opinion of Burford.

 

DISCLOSURE OR USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We feel very strongly about privacy and confidentiality and we will not exchange or sell or otherwise distribute your Personal Information without your consent outside of Burford, except in accordance with your instructions, or if it is already in the public domain, or it has been received independently from a third party whom we reasonably believed was permitted to supply such information to us, or as identified in this privacy policy:

In the normal course of our business, information may be shared within Burford entities and may be used both for research and statistical purposes and crime prevention. It may be transferred to any country, including countries outside the European Economic Area, for any of these purposes and for systems administration. It may also be used to provide our clients with information about products and services that we believe could be of interest, by post, by telephone, e-mail, or other means.

Agents and Service Providers. We sometimes contract with other companies and individuals to perform functions or services on our behalf, such as hosting this Site, sending e-mail messages and making phone calls on our behalf. They may have access to Personal Information, such as addresses, needed to perform their functions, but are restricted from using it for purposes other than providing services for Burford.

Business Transfers. As we continue to develop our business, we might sell or buy assets or businesses. In such transactions, user information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Also, if either a Burford entity itself or substantially all of a Burford’s entity’s assets were acquired, your Personal Information may be one of the transferred assets.

Burford may preserve and has the right to disclose without your prior permission any information about you or your use of this Site if Burford has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) Protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Burford, employees, other users of this Site, or the public; (b) Enforce the terms and conditions that apply to use of this Site, or (c) Respond to claims that any content violates the rights of third-parties. We may also disclose information as we deem necessary to satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.

 

EXTERNAL LINKS

Burford includes links to other websites whose privacy policies we do not control. Once you leave our servers (you can tell where you are by checking the URL in the location bar on your browser), use of any information you provide is governed by the privacy policy of the operator of the site you are visiting. That policy may differ from ours. If you can’t find the privacy policy of any of these sites via a link from the site’s homepage, you should contact the site directly for more information.

 

INFORMATION STORAGE AND SECURITY

Information collected through this Site may be processed and stored anywhere in the world by Burford and its technology service providers. By providing information to Burford through the use of the Site you are consenting to the transfer of the information into or through any jurisdiction for processing in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We endeavor to maintain appropriate safeguards appropriate to the sensitivity of the Personal Information we collect, use, and maintain. However, as effective as our security measures may be, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our database, nor can we guarantee that information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. Burford is not engaged in personal transaction, and you should not supply sensitive personal information to us such as social security or government identification numbers, banking or credit information, or the like.

 

INFORMATION RELATED TO EMPLOYMENT

This Site may provide an opportunity to submit your curriculum vitae or an application form to us or apply for a position through this Site. If you submit information for such purposes, we will use (which may include transferring) the Personal Information you provide to evaluate your qualifications and contact you regarding any positions at Burford in which we believe you may be interested.

 

BURFORD IS NOT INTERESTED IN MINORS

You must be at least 18 years old and possess the legal authority to form legally binding contracts under applicable law to use this Site and the services provided on it. Burford does not knowingly collect Personal Information from those under the age of 18 nor are our services directed in any way towards minors. In an instance where such information was collected, it would be purely accidental and unintentional. Burford encourages parents to discuss the Internet with their children and monitor Personal Information that a child may provide via the Internet.
