In the ordinary course of business, Moelis collects, uses, and shares personal information pertaining to its partners, employees, clients, and others. Obtaining this information is important to our ability to conduct our operations and to deliver the highest level of service, but we also recognize that you expect us to treat this information appropriately.
HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU
When you visit our Site, our web servers collect the details of your operating system, browser version, domain name and IP address and the details of the web site you linked from to the Site. Our web servers may seek to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive, which allows the server to recognise your computer when you visit again. If you prefer not to accept cookies, you can set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.
There are parts of this Site where we may need to collect personal information from you for a specific purpose, such as to provide you with certain information you request. If you voluntarily submit information to our website (for example, in a request for general information or through the submission of a business proposal), we may record and use any personally identifiable information, such as your name, phone number, fax number and e-mail address, for reasonable business purposes including, but not limited to, fulfilling your request and marketing and business communications and you expressly agree with the collection, use, storage and handling of your personal data as set out in these terms. If you do not provide all the information we need, we may not be able to give you the information you request.
Please also note we have certain responsibilities under the Money Laundering Regulations 2007, the FCA Rules and the DFSA Rulebook to verify the identity of clients and may need to make certain inquiries and obtain certain information from you for that purpose. You confirm that all information you supply will be accurate and that we may disclose such information as we consider necessary to comply with any reporting or legal and regulatory requirements.
USES OF COLLECTED INFORMATION
The principal purposes for which we process and store your personal information are, or may in the future be:
- to monitor, improve and administer the Site and the services provided on the Site;
- to enable us to conduct surveys and aggregate user profiles;
- to provide you with information on selected services that we think may be of interest to you (unless you have asked us not to do so); and
- to enable us to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations.
DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITHIN MOELIS
In order to provide efficient and reliable services and to improve service options available to you, we may share your personal information with our subsidiaries or affiliates. For this purpose, we may transfer the information you provide outside your country to a Moelis entity in another country that does not have similar data protection legislation and may provide a lower level of protection for your information. By submitting any information you consent to these transfers. We have taken certain measures outlined below to try to ensure the security of your information.
DISCLOSURES OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES
We may share your personal information with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies – our vendors – are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information to the extent they receive it and to use your personal information only in the course of providing such services and only on our behalf for the purposes that Moelis has hired them and for which it has instructed them.
We may also release information about you if you direct us to do so, or if we are required or authorised by law to make disclosures to the government or private parties in connection with a lawsuit, subpoena, investigation or similar proceeding, or to protect against fraud and to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or regulatory authorities.
Where you have provided personal information to us, you expressly consent to the sharing of such personal information with third parties for the purposes set out in this section.
SECURITY OF COLLECTED INFORMATION
We use all reasonable efforts to maintain physical, electronic, and administrative safeguards to protect your personal information from unauthorized or inappropriate access but we note that the Internet is not a secure medium. We restrict access to information about you to those Moelis personnel who need to know the information to respond to your inquiry or request.

Moelis welcomes your e-mail correspondence. However, it is possible that information transmitted to Moelis may be read or obtained by other parties.

Further, despite all possible security measures that Moelis would take to keep this Site free from hacking and other interference, this Site like any other website is not free from such risks.
