We may use non-personally identifiable information collected from you and other users to perform statistical analyses of user behavior and characteristics. These aggregated statistics may be used to improve this website and for other business purposes. For instance, when you visit this website, we collect your IP address. An IP address is associated with the access point through which you enter the Internet, and is typically controlled by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

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.

This website may contain information that includes or is based upon forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws. Forward-looking statements are made based on CD&R’s current expectations and beliefs concerning future developments and their potential effects. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate solely to historical or current facts. They generally include words such as “believe”, “expects”, “anticipates”, “intends” and similar words. There can be no assurance that future developments will be in accordance with CD&R’s expectations or that the effect of future developments will be those anticipated by CD&R. The following important factors, risks, and uncertainties are among those that may affect such statements: (a) changes in performance of financial markets and interest rates; (b) development of new financial products; and (c) regulatory, accounting or tax changes that may affect the cost of, or demand for, our financial products or services. While CD&R periodically reassesses material factors, risks and uncertainties, we do not intend to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect changes in events, circumstances or expectations or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events after the date on which a statement is made.
