The Information We Gather
- Information Collected Upon Access to the Website
We may use information collected from you and other users upon your access to the website to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics. These aggregated statistics may be used to improve this website and for other similar business purposes. For instance, when you visit this website, we collect your IP address. An IP address is a number associated with the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is typically controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). We may use IP addresses to collect information regarding the frequency with which people visit various parts of this website. We cannot tell who you are based on your IP address alone, though it is possible that you can be identified by a combination of the IP address and other information. The same considerations apply to mobile device identifiers.
The information collected upon access to the website may constitute personal information within the meaning of applicable data protection laws.
- Direct Information Submission
If you submit information to us directly through this website (for example, in a request for general information or through the submission of a business proposal) we may record and use any personal information that you provide, such as your name, telephone number and email address. This information may be used to respond to your request or for other internal business purposes.
Limited Partners of funds managed by CD&R and CD&R personnel may have access to our Limited Partner Reporting System. In order to obtain a user-id and password to access our Limited Partner Reporting System, you may be asked to provide us with your name, telephone number and e-mail address. We may record and use any such personal information to monitor access to our Limited Partner Reporting System and to ensure the security thereof.
How We Use the Information
Our processing of your personal information is necessary for our legitimate purposes of operating our business, providing you with access to the website, analyzing use of and improving our website, and providing limited partners with access to the Limited Partner Reporting System. CD&R may process your personal information: (i) to exercise CD&R’s rights and to comply with its legal, regulatory, or contractual obligations, including for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims by or against CD&R; (ii) to help detect, prevent, investigate and prosecute fraud and/or other criminal activity; (iii) to manage CD&R’s information technology and to ensure the security of CD&R’s systems; and (iv) to investigate and respond to any complaints about CD&R or any incidents relating to CD&R.
We may use service providers to operate our website and employ other third parties to perform work on our behalf, such as hosting this website or operating our Limited Partner Reporting System. These persons may have access to the personal information you submit through this website, but only for the purpose of performing their duties in connection with this website. These persons may not use your personal information for any other purpose.
In some jurisdictions, including in the countries of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have the right, in certain circumstances, to (i) require us to delete your personal information; (ii) require us to restrict processing of your personal information (for example, if you contest the accuracy of that information); (iii) receive a copy of the personal information we process in relation to you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and/or instruct us to transmit that data to a third party; and (iv) object to our continued processing of your personal information, for direct marketing (including profiling) or other purposes.
You can exercise these rights free of charge by contacting us using the details in the “Questions and Contact Information” section below. CD&R reserves the right to confirm your identity before releasing any such information.
Do Not Track Disclosure
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” (“DNT”) signals to request that a web application disable its tracking technologies. We currently do not change our tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser. We may have our service providers or other third parties that we engage to operate our website or perform work on our behalf collect information about your online activities over time across our website. These third parties may not change their tracking practices in response to DNT settings in your web browser.
We retain personal information for as long as we reasonably require it for legal or business purposes. In determining data retention periods, we consider local laws, contractual obligations and your reasonable expectations and requirements.
We use commercially reasonable administrative, technical, personnel and physical measures to safeguard information in our possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification. However, we cannot guarantee the absolute security of our servers or databases or those of our third-party service providers. You use our website at your own risk.

If you use this website, or provide personal information to us using the “Questions and Contact Information” section below, you are voluntarily transferring your personal information to the United States, a jurisdiction which does not offer the same type of protection to the personal information of individuals as countries within the EEA.
