The SKB Entities have created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our commitment to the privacy of the users of the SKB website. This Privacy Policy discloses our information gathering and dissemination practices for the SKB website.

Collection and Use of Information

Personally identifiable information. You will not be asked for any personally identifiable information unless you choose to register; in which case the information you provide will be collected. In addition, if you fill out an investor questionnaire and agreement additional information will be collected.

The personally identifiable information we collect may include, but is not limited to: name; address; telephone numbers; email address; social security number; date of birth; driver’s license number; occupation; place of employment; income and assets; bank account and routing numbers; financial information necessary to process investor questionnaires, determine accredited investor status, and facilitate the offering of investment products; and information relating to investor transactions. Such information may be used in a number of ways, including, but not limited to: allowing you access to password-protected pages; processing investor questionnaires; verifying your identity; protect against fraud; communicating with you; transmitting documents and other information to you regarding products and services offered through the SKB website; facilitating funds transfers and disbursements; following your instructions as authorized; other everyday business purposes of SKB; and complying with and enforcing applicable laws, industry standards, rules, and regulations.

ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION WE COLLECT WILL ONLY BE USED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IT WILL NOT BE SOLD OR RENTED TO THIRD PARTIES TO ADVERTISE OR MARKET TO YOU, IT WILL NOT BE USED BY ANY OF OUR AFFILIATES TO MARKET TO YOU, AND WE WILL NOT USE IT TO MARKET PRODUCTS OR SERVICES TO YOU OTHER THAN THOSE IN WHICH YOU HAVE EXPRESSED AN INTEREST. However, such information may be shared with: affiliates of the SKB Entities in connection with any investments offered through the SKB website, including but not limited to the SKB Entities; and/or any other party or parties sponsoring or issuing any investments (“Sponsor”) in which you express interest or purchase. By expressing an interest in a particular investment you are authorizing us to share personally identifiable information with the Sponsor in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You may revoke such authorization by contacting us, but such revocation may preclude you from receiving further information regarding an investment or completing a purchase.

The information may also be disclosed to the extent required by legal proceedings, such as responding to a subpoena when required by law, rule, or regulation. We may also disclose the information to thirty party service providers that assist us in providing services to you; however, in such cases such third party providers will be bound by this Privacy Policy. In the event that all or some of the business or assets of any of the SKB Entities is acquired by or merged with another entity, we also may disclose your information to such entity in order that the new entity can continue to serve you. You will be notified if such an event occurs and the new entity will inform you of its own privacy policies.

We may obtain personally identifiable information about you from third parties such as credit reporting agencies, and if such information is combined with personally identifiable information you provide directly to us, the combined information will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

In the event that you terminate your relationship with us, we may retain certain personally identifiable information about you to the extent required by law, rule, regulation, or industry standard. Such information will be treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy so long as we retain it.
