PRIVACY POLICY

 Moelis & Company (“we”, “our” and “us”) knows you are concerned about your privacy, so we developed this Privacy Policy to explain how we collect, use, and disclose your Personal and Non-Personal Information (defined below) on our website, www.gsesafetyandsoundness.com (the “Site”). Read on and we will tell you how this all works.

By using the Site you are accepting the policies and practices described in this Privacy Policy. Each time you visit the Site or provide us with information, you agree that you are consenting to our use and disclosure of the information that you provide, and consenting to receive emails or otherwise be contacted, as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into the Site’s Terms of Use.

Personal Information

When we use the phrase “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information about you that is personally identifiable to you, like your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number.  We only have this information if you willingly provide it to us, for example, when you communicate with us by sending us an email, complete online forms, or request information or certain services. We may use this Personal Information without further consent to send you informational materials about the Site. The emails will have information as to how to opt-out of receiving emails from us or you may contact us at [email protected]

Non-Personal Information

When we use the phrase “Non-Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we mean information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information. Non-Personal Information does not enable identification of, or contact with, individual persons.

We may use cookies, web beacons, and GIFs to collect Non-Personal Information about your visit, such as when you visited the Site, how you arrived at our Site, and what you viewed and searched for on the Site.  We may use cookies, web beacons or tags to gather this Non-Personal Information.  Cookies are pieces of code/text that get placed on your computer when you browse the Site.
