Waterton may track certain Site usage statistics such as the number of visitors that visit the Site and the frequency with which they visit (the “Statistical Data”).  Waterton shall use the Statistical Data on an aggregate basis only and shall not intentionally disclose any information that could be used to identify individual visitors to any third parties. Waterton may also record certain information regarding its visitors’ internet usage such as the websites that visitors access immediately before and after they visit the Site, the internet browsers they use and their individual IP addresses.

Waterton does not collect personally identifiable information (the “Personal Data”) except when such Personal Data is provided to Waterton on a voluntary basis (e.g. uploading your resume or questions to the Site). Waterton may record and use the Personal Data submitted to it, in whole or in part, for reasonable business purposes.  By accessing and/or using the Site, you acknowledge that Waterton will have no obligation of any kind with respect to the Personal Data, that you consent to the Personal Data being transferred or transmitted within Waterton and that Waterton uses external service providers to operate the Site (which external service providers may have access to the Personal Data, but only for the purpose of performing their duties to Waterton).

Forward Looking Statements

From time to time, the Site may contain forward-looking statements that reflect Waterton’s current views with respect to, among other things, the operations and performance of the funds it advises.  All statements other than statements of historical fact are forward-looking statements.  Forward-looking statements may be identified by the use of words such as “outlook,” “believe,” “expect,” “potential,” “continue,” “may,” “should,” “seek,” “approximately,” “predict,” “intend,” “will,” “plan,” “estimate,” “anticipate” or the negative version of these words or other comparable words. Forward-looking statements are based on various estimates and assumptions that while considered reasonable by Waterton, are inherently subject to risks, uncertainties and contingencies.  Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause actual outcomes or results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements.  You are cautioned that forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance.

Waterton disclaims any intention and undertakes no obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statement whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.
