Additional Information for Residents of the European Economic Area (the “EEA”)

The below information applies to any Data Subject resident in the EEA.  For purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27th April 2016 (the “GDPR”), we act as a “data controller” and our headquarters is located in the United States at 1001 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20004.  As a data controller, we are responsible for deciding how we hold and use Personal Data about you.   

GDPR Data Protection Principles

In respect of the collection, holding, storage, use, and processing of your Personal Data:

  • We will process the data lawfully, fairly and in a transparent way.
  • We will obtain the data only for valid purposes that we have clearly explained to you and not used in any way that is incompatible with those purposes.
  • The data we collect will be relevant to the purposes we have told you about and limited only to those purposes.
  • We will take reasonable steps to ensure that the data is accurate and kept up to date.
  • Subject to applicable legal or other requirements, we will keep the data only as long as necessary.
  • We will use appropriate technical and/or organizational measures to ensure appropriate security of the data.

Transfer of Personal Data Outside of the EEA

The transfer of Personal Data from the UK/EEA to the Carlyle entities outside the EEA is governed by data transfer agreements which are in the form of the standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission (a copy of which can be obtained from us via the contact details below).

Where your Personal Data is processed by third parties outside the EEA, we will ensure appropriate safeguards are in place to adequately protect it, as required by applicable law, including the execution of standard contractual clauses (referred to above) if the recipients are not located in a country with adequate data protection laws (as determined by the European Commission) or certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield framework.

GDPR Data Subject Rights

Under the GDPR, in certain circumstances, an EEA-resident Data Subject has certain individual rights with respect to the Personal Data that we hold about them.  In particular, you may have the right to:

  • Request access to any data held about you
  • Ask to have inaccurate data amended
  • Request data held about you to be deleted, provided the data is not required by Carlyle to perform a contract, defend a legal claim or to comply with applicable laws or regulations
  • Prevent or restrict processing of data which is no longer required
  • Request transfer of appropriate data to a third party where this is technically feasible

Additionally, in the circumstances where you may have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your Personal Data for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent for that specific processing at any time. Once we have received notification that you have withdrawn your consent, we will no longer process your information for the purpose or purposes you originally agreed to, unless we have another legitimate basis for doing so in law.

To exercise any of these rights, please contact us using the contact details set out under the “Contact and Complaints” heading above.

Automated Decision Making

We respect your legal rights not to be subject to decisions that are based solely on automated processing of your Personal Data, including profiling, especially where such processing has legal or other significant effects on you.  In establishing and carrying out a business relationship, we generally do not use any automated decision making pursuant to the GDPR.  We may process some of your Personal Data automatically, with the goal of assessing certain personal aspects (profiling), such as to comply with legal or regulatory obligations to combat money laundering, terrorism financing, and offenses that pose a danger to assets.  [We also use assessment tools in order to be able to allow communications and marketing to be tailored as needed.]

Complaints to Local ities

As a resident of the EEA, you are also entitled to direct any complaints in relation to our processing of your Personal Data to your national or local data protection supervisory ity.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your Personal Data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive.

Additional Information for Residents of California

The information below may apply to Data Subjects who are residents of California.    

California Data Subject Rights

California’s “Shine the Light” law permits California residents to annually request and obtain information free of charge about what Personal Information is disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. For more information on these disclosures, please contact us using the contact details set out under the “Contact and Complaints” heading above.

In addition, Data Subjects in California may have a right under the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) to request erasure of their personal data or access to personal data that we have collected in the last twelve (12) months.

You may submit requests for access or erasure of your personal information by calling 1-855-283-9736 (Domestic US only) or contacting us at dppc@hzzx333.com.

Individuals who submit requests for access or erasure of personal information will be required to verify their identity by answering certain questions. We will not disclose or delete any information until identity is verified.

If you are making a request for access, we may not be able to provide specific pieces of personal information if the disclosure creates a substantial, articulable, and unreasonable risk to the security of your personal information, your account with us, or our systems or networks.

If you are making a request for erasure, we will ask that you confirm that you would like us to delete your personal information again before your request is addressed.

You may designate an ized agent to submit a request on your behalf by providing that agent with your written permission. If an agent makes a request on your behalf, we may still ask that you verify your identity directly with us before we can honor the request.

Agents who make requests on behalf of individuals, will be required to verify the request by submitting written ization from the individual. We will not honor any requests from agents until ization is verified.

Under the CCPA, you cannot be discriminated against for exercising your rights to access or request erasure of their personal data.
