You can block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies.

What We Do With Your Personal Information

We may use your Personal Information:

  • To administer our business and provide service to you.
  • To contact you, such as to respond to questions you may raise.
  • To advertise to you.
  • To make changes to and improve our website.
  • To respond to law enforcement, court, or regulatory inquiries.
  • For our legitimate internal business purposes, such as analytics designed to improve and enhance the services we may offer you.
  • To share with third parties with which we contract as defined by the purpose of the contract. See also “How We Share Your Information” below.

In addition to these limitations on the use of your Personal Information, in any event, we further restrict the use of your Sensitive Personal Information to what is reasonably necessary for our legitimate internal business purposes.

The length of time we intend to retain your Personal Information is determined by the time period reasonably necessary for the disclosed purpose above; our routine back-up retention policies; any applicable legal, regulatory or other similar document retention requirements; and certain other legitimate purposes as further described below in “Right to be Forgotten or Deleted.”

To protect your Personal Information from unauthorized or illegal access, destruction, use, modification, or disclosure, CNL employs reasonable security measures, such as technological safeguards and secured files and buildings. We also contractually require any Third Parties that we may share your Personal Information with to comply with all privacy and security laws. CNL will only share such information with contracted third parties subject to appropriate confidentiality agreements that obligate Third Parties to maintain and protect the confidentiality of such information.

How We Share Your Personal Information

We may share your Personal Information as follows:

  • CNL will not sell your Personal Information as part of its business (e.g. as a “product”); however, at times CNL will contract with Third Parties to provide services to CNL. As part of that agreement, the Third Party may gain rights to own or use your information.
    • As indicated above, CNL does not currently sell your information as a product; however, if in the future CNL determines that it will sell your information as a product, it will first seek your express permission before so doing if required by law.
    • If you do not want us to share your Personal Information for use by Third Parties for their own marketing purposes, either so indicate at the time of collection, or please follow the procedure described below to opt out of such sharing.
  • CNL transfers information to and sometimes among its Affiliates for the purposes of carrying out the business operations of each of the Affiliates. This information may include your Personal Information.
    • None of the Affiliates focuses its business on “data sales” or “data mining” your information.
    • None of the Affiliates focuses its business on marketing your data as a product.
    • Rather, each of the Affiliates is, generally speaking, in the business of investing in real estate, operating businesses, and securities (i.e. “stock”) or supporting such businesses.
  • CNL may share your Personal Information with government agencies and/or officials when required to do so by law, rule or regulation.
  • CNL may share your Personal Information with our lawyers, accountants, consultants, and other service providers when necessary for them to provide advice and services to CNL; however, our service providers are contractually bound to use such information only for the intended purpose.

If in the unlikely event CNL is sold or acquired, it will likely include your Personal Information as a part of that sale, and we will not ask for your permission prior to such company sale unless a court rules that we must. Similarly, if in the unlikely event CNL or an Affiliate declares bankruptcy, your Personal Information may be transferred via that bankruptcy proceeding as an “asset” of the bankruptcy estate.
