Who We Are
When we use the term “Benefit Street" or "we," "us" or "our", we mean to refer to Benefit Street Partners L.L.C.
The Sites may link to third party websites or services not owned or controlled by Benefit Street.  Please note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to those third party websites and Benefit Street is not responsible for the data collection practices of any third parties.

The Information We Collect and Use
When we use the term “Personal Information” we mean information that can be used to identify you as an individual person.  We may collect and use two categories of Personal Information through your use of our Sites.

1.    Personal Information You Provide To Us 

We collect personal information when you choose to share that information with us. For example, if you submit identifiable comments or other content to us, we collect whatever information you supply and use this information to communicate with you if requested, and otherwise fulfill the purpose of the content submission. 

2.    Information Collected Automatically

We use various technologies to collect other types of data that do not directly reveal your identity (“Other Information”).  If we associate Other Information with Personal Information, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
  • Logging Functionality: We may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files.  This information may include IP addresses, browser type, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and/or clickstream data.  We generally only use this data for purposes such as security, fraud detection, and protecting our rights.
  • Cookies and Other Data Collection Technologies: We and our service providers may use cookies, scripts, and similar technologies to manage our websites and to collect information about you and your use of our Sites.  These technologies help us to recognize you, customize or personalize your experience and analyze the use of our Sites to make them more useful to you.  These technologies may also allow us to aggregate demographic and statistical data and provide this information to our service providers to facilitate their provision of services.  Most Internet browsers allow you to remove or manage cookie functions and adjust your privacy and security preferences.  For information on how to do this, access the “help” menu on your Internet browser, or visit http://www.aboutcookies.org/how-to-control-cookies.  Please note, however, that disabling our cookies may result in your inability to take full advantage of all of the features of our Sites. 
  • Analytics:  We may use analytics providers such as Google Analytics to help us evaluate the Sites.  To opt out of the aggregation and analysis of data collected about you on our website by Google Analytics, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Investor Accounts
Please note that if you access your investor account through the Sites, you leave our Sites and navigate to a third party website that we do not own or control. In order to set up an investor account, we may have provided the third party website with certain account details (for example, name, job title and company name, email and physical address, phone number, username, password, demographic or investment information) that you submitted to us separately from your use of the Sites. This Privacy Policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, the practices of the third party that administers your investor account. Please refer to the privacy policy on the third party website to understand what information they may collect and how it is used.

Additional Purposes For Which We Collect And Use Information
In addition to the uses described above, we may use your Personal Information for the following purposes: 
  • Operating our business;
  • Contacting you to respond to your requests or inquiries and provide user support;
  • Contacting you about programs, products, or services that we believe may be of interest to you, new product or service announcements or event invitations;
  • Preventing, investigating, or providing notice of fraud, unlawful or criminal activity, or unauthorized access to or use of Personal Information, our website or data systems; or to meet legal obligations;
  • Investigating and resolving disputes and security issues and enforcing our Terms & Conditions of Use and other agreements;
  • Any other lawful, legitimate business purpose.

It may also be disclosed in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership.  You will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on any affected website of any change in ownership or uses of Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding Personal Information about you.
