PRIVACY POLICY

Eastspring Investments Privacy Statement

We, at Eastspring Investments, are dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to us. Specifically, we are committed to ensuring appropriate protection and use of personal information ("PI") that has been collected through our web sites.

We intend to collect only the PI that is provided voluntarily by visitors to our web sites so that we can offer information and/or services to those individuals or where applicable, offer information about employment opportunities within Eastspring Investments. Please review our Privacy Statement below to learn more about how we collect, use, share and protect the PI that we have obtained.

Collection and use of Personal Information

We obtain your PI if you choose to provide it. Sometimes, you might have already provided your PI to Eastspring Investments (for example, in your capacity as a former employee, agent or contractor). By registering and/or submitting your PI on our web sites, you are also agreeing to the use of this information in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your PI is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional/industry standards. For example, if you send us an email message requesting information about Eastspring Investments, we will use your email address and other information you supply to respond to your request. If you send us your resume to apply online for a position within Eastspring Investments, we will use that information to match you with available job opportunities within Eastspring Investments.

Eastspring Investments generally collects only the PI necessary to fulfill your request.

Eastspring Investments only collects "sensitive" PI when the relevant individuals voluntarily provide us with this information or where such information is required or permitted to be collected by law or professional/industry standards. Sensitive information may include PI regarding a person’s race, ethnicity, political beliefs, trade union membership, religious or similar beliefs, physical or mental health, or criminal record. Please use your discretion when providing sensitive information to Eastspring Investments, and under any circumstances, do not provide sensitive information to Eastspring Investments, unless you also consent to Eastspring Investments’ use of that information for its legitimate business purposes and further consent to the transfer and storage of such information to and within Eastspring Investments’ databases.

In some instances, Eastspring Investments automatically collects certain types of information when you visit our web sites and through emails that we may exchange with you. Automated technologies may include the use of web server logs to collect IP addresses or "cookies". The collection of this information will allow us to better understand and improve the performance and usability of Eastspring Investments web sites and to measure effectiveness of our marketing efforts.

IP addresses

An IP address is a series of numbers assigned to your computer whenever you access the internet. It allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with one another. IP addresses from which visitors appear to originate may be recorded for IT security and system diagnostic purposes. This information may also be used in other forms to conduct web site trend and performance analysis.

Cookies

A "cookie” is a small piece of text that a web site places in the cookie file of your browser and that allows the site to remember who you are. Cookies are not intended to run programmes or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies by themselves do not tell us your email address or otherwise identify you personally. If you visit any Eastspring Investments web site, we use cookies to compile certain information to assist us to determine visitors’ preference and trends in web browsing activity.

You have the choice of deciding whether to accept cookies or not. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies. However, please be aware that if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to enjoy a comprehensive experience of our web site features.

Sharing and transfer of Personal Information

We do not share your PI with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional/industry standards.

In some instances, Eastspring Investments may also share your PI with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help fulfill your requests.

In addition, Eastspring Investments may transfer and/or store certain PI beyond your jurisdiction to other Eastspring Investments affiliated firms or outside companies working with us or on our behalf. By providing your PI on Eastspring Investments’ web sites, you consent to this transfer and/or storage of your data outside of your jurisdiction.

Eastspring Investments may also disclose your PI in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates, in order to respond to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where this is required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. These disclosures may also be needed for data privacy or security audits and/or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat. Eastspring Investments does not sell PI to any third parties. Also, Eastspring Investments will not transfer your PI to any third parties for their own direct marketing use.

Data security and integrity

Eastspring Investments has reasonable security policies and procedures in place to protect your PI from unauthorized loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. However, despite Eastspring Investments’ best efforts, security cannot be ensured against all threats. To the best of our ability, access to your PI is limited to those on a need to know basis.

Changes to this policy

Eastspring Investments may modify this Privacy Statement from time to time to reflect our current privacy practices. When we make changes to this statement, we will revise the “updated” date at the top of this page. We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Statement to be informed about how Eastspring Investments is protecting your PI.
