  • Use of Cookies: We or our third-party service providers may use cookies, local shared objects, web beacons and other similar technology (collectively, “Cookies”) in connection with your use of our site or site Content. Cookies are small pieces of information that a website transfers to your computer’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes and may have unique identifiers and transmit information about you and how you use our site, which may include your search preferences, browser type and the date and time of use. If you choose, you can disable some (but not all) Cookies in your device or browser settings, but doing so may affect your ability to use our site or receive third-party services through our site.

  • How We Use Your Information: The information that you provide to us and that we may collect in the future is used for our business purposes and the purpose for which you provided it only, subject to these Terms, including, without limitation, to respond to your requests or correspondence, to contact you about the site, to request feedback regarding ways to improve the site and/or to inform you about our activities, products and services or those of our affiliates. We may analyze your information, including tracking data, to provide you with useful information and improve our services through enhanced features and functions on the site.  For example, your information may be used to, without limitation, compile statistical, demographic or aggregated information about visitors to the site generally, or for load-balancing metrics, and also may be used to create reports on user demographics and the traffic patterns of the site.  We will not disclose any personal information collected through the site to third parties in an identifiable, disaggregated format, except: (i) to our affiliates, agents, consultants and contractors; (ii) to service providers who assist us in running the site and our business; (iii) when we believe that such disclosure is required by law; (iv) to enforce these Terms; (v) to protect the rights, property, security or safety of ValueAct, site users or the public; (vi) to respond to an emergency; or (vii) as otherwise stated in these Terms. In addition, we may disclose information to certain third parties if you have requested or authorized the disclosure of such information. We may also share aggregated or deidentified information in our sole discretion.  Please note that although we use reasonable efforts to limit third-party use of information, we are not responsible for such third-party use of information. From time to time, we may email site users with information regarding important developments affecting ValueAct or otherwise regarding the site. Such emails may be sent to site users even if they have not requested to receive any communication from us.

  • Information Transfer: We retain the right to transfer or assign your information to our successor or in connection with any change of control, merger, business combination, stock sale, asset sale, reorganization, amalgamation or other company transaction relating to ValueAct or our assets, in whole or in part, without notice to you.

  • How Your Information Is Protected: We take reasonable precautions to protect your information from loss, misuse or alteration. You should recognize, however, that there is no such thing as “perfect security” on the Internet, and we cannot guarantee the security of your information. In addition, because Internet communications are unsecure, it is also possible that the information you supply to us or your access of any information via the Website will be intercepted during transmission. We are not liable for any breach of our systems or interception of our transmission, and we hereby fully disclaim, to the fullest extent possible under law, any liability associated with any claim relating to a breach of security, data or information.

  • Compliance with Laws: We reserve the right to disclose any information that we believe is necessary to comply with any law, regulation, decree, judgment, order, subpoena or any other governmental order (“Order”) without any obligation to contest or verify the accuracy of such Order.


We shall not be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages, resulting from the use of or the inability to use the site or Content or resulting from unauthorized access this site, including but not limited to, damages for loss of profits, use, data or other intangible, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Because some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, in such states liability is limited to the fullest extent permitted by law.

If you are dissatisfied with any portion of the service, or with any of these Terms, your sole and exclusive remedy is to discontinue using this site.


To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, you hereby irrevocably waive any and all right to trial by jury in any legal proceeding arising out of or relating to this agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby.
