Website Visitors
The Family Office Council collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. The Family Office Council’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how its visitors use its website. From time to time, the Family Office Council may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

The Family Office Council also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs. The Family Office Council only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Family Office Council website choose to interact with the Family Office Council in ways that require the Family Office Council to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that the Family Office Council gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. The Family Office Council collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the Family Office Council. The Family Office Council does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
The Family Office Council may collect statistics about the behaviour of visitors to its websites. The Family Office Council may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, the Family Office Council does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
The Family Office Council discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on the Family Office Council’s behalf or to provide services available on the Family Office Council’s website, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of the United Kingdom; by using the Family Office Council’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. The Family Office Council will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, the Family Office Council discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when the Family Office Council believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of the Family Office Council, third parties or the public at large. If you have submitted your information to the Family Office Council via the Membership Application Form, the Nomination Form, or by other means, and have supplied your email address, the Family Office Council may contact you from time-to-time to keep you up-to-date with news and developments in the industry, via both email and post. You may change your preferences at any time by contacting the Family Office Council. The Family Office Council takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
