Purposes and legitimate grounds for processing of personal data

Purposes

Personal data is processed by NGP Capital for the following purposes:

To provide our Websites and carry out our contractual obligations

We process personal data to be able to offer the Websites and to run, maintain and develop our business and to comply with our commitments to our Contacts and their organisations. Personal data may be processed in order to carry out our contractual obligations.

For communication, marketing and newsletters

We may process personal data for the purpose of contacting Contacts as well as to market our business and send newsletters.

For quality improvement

We may process information regarding the use of the Websites and our services and to improve the quality of our Websites and business.

Legitimate grounds for processing

We process personal data to perform our contractual obligations and to comply with legal obligations. Furthermore, we process personal data to pursue our legitimate interest to run, maintain and develop our business and to create and maintain business relationships. When choosing to use your data on the basis of our legitimate interests, we weigh our own interests against your right to privacy and e.g. provide you with opt-out mechanisms from our marketing communications.

You may be requested to grant your consent for the processing of personal data. In this event, you may withdraw your consent at any time.

Transfer to countries outside europe

NGP Capital stores the personal data primarily within the European Economic Area. However, we have service providers in several geographical locations. As such, we and our service providers may transfer personal data to, or access it in, jurisdictions outside the European Economic Area.

We will take steps to ensure that the personal data receives an adequate level of protection in the jurisdictions in which it is processed. We provide adequate protection for the transfers of personal data to countries outside of the European Economic Area through a series of agreements with our service providers based on the Standard Contractual Clauses or through other appropriate safeguards, such as the Privacy Shield Framework.

PERSONAL DATA recipients

We do not share personal data with third parties outside of NGP Capital’s organization unless one of the following circumstances applies:

For legal reasons

We may share personal data with third parties outside NGP Capital’s organization if we believe that access to and use of the personal data is reasonably necessary to: (i) meet any applicable law, regulation, and/or court order; (ii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; and/or (iii) protect the interests, properties or safety of NGP Capital, our Contacts or the public in accordance with the law. When possible, we will inform Contacts about such transfer and processing.

To authorized service providers and third parties for the purposes of this Privacy Policy

We may share personal data to authorized service providers who perform services for us (including data storage and marketing). Our agreements with our service providers include commitments that the service providers agree to limit their use of personal data and to comply with privacy and security standards at least as stringent as the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Sometimes it may be necessary to provide third parties with your personal data for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy.

For other legitimate reasons

If NGP Capital is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we may transfer personal data to the third party involved. However, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of all personal data.

With explicit consent

We may share personal data with third parties outside NGP Capital’s organization when we have your explicit consent to do so.

Storage period

NGP Capital does not store personal data longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. The storage period depends on the nature of the information and the purposes of processing. The maximum storage period may therefore vary per use. Generally personal data is stored for the duration of the employment or service relationship with the Contact’s organisation and for a reasonable period thereafter.

We will store personal data for no longer than is required by law or reasonably necessary for our contractual obligations and legitimate interests for example for claims handling, internal reporting, marketing and accounting purposes.

We will store Analytics Data relating to the Websites for 26 months.
