NOT A BROKER DEALER
Tryton is not a registered broker/dealer, a registered adviser, investment advisor or a register fund manager under Canadian, United States or foreign securities laws. Tryton does not offer or participate in offers of securities for sale or provide investment advice to others. Nothing on this Website is intended to constitute (i) an offer to sell or buy, or a solicitation of an offer to sell or buy securities from Tryton or any other person or company; (ii) investment advice or an offer to provide such advice; or (iii) a basis for making any investment decision.
Tryton provides a wide range of services to private equity funds, venture capital investors and other clients based on the following terms:
Advice to Private Equity, Venture Capital and Strategic Investors – Tryton provides consulting services to clients on either a retainer or project basis. These include identifying potential investment opportunities, evaluation of transactions being contemplated by clients, development of strategic plans for portfolio companies and coaching of portfolio company management teams. These services are provided by contract directly to clients and do not place Tryton in the role of a Broker/Dealer.
Financial Transaction Advice – Tryton is not a registered Broker/Dealer and does not act as an agent for buyers or sellers of businesses.
Securities Services – If potential clients require assistance in executing a transaction involving the purchase or sale of securities, as opposed to the sale of assets or negotiation of other arrangements, Tryton typically introduces them to an investment bank. Clients enter into a contract with such investment bank to receive the requested services.
A. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Privacy of personal information is an important principle to Tryton Management Corporation (“Tryton” or the “Company”). Tryton is committed to collecting, using and disclosing personal information responsibly and only to the extent necessary. Tryton does not sell, rent or share your personal information. Tryton will not disclose your personal information except when:
- authorized by you;
- required by law;
- permitted by law (e.g. medical emergency);
- the information is already publicly known; or
B. WHAT IS PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal information is information about an identifiable individual, and includes information that relates to an individual’s personal characteristics (e.g., gender, age, income, home address, phone number, and family status). Personal information is different from business information (e.g., an individual’s business address and telephone number). Business information is not protected by privacy legislation.
C. WHO WE ARE
Tryton includes its controlled subsidiaries. Tryton uses a number of consultants and agencies that may, in the course of their duties, have limited access to the personal information that Tryton holds. Their access to any personal information that Tryton holds is restricted as much as is reasonably possible. Tryton also has their assurance that they follow appropriate privacy principles.
D. WHY TRYTON COLLECTS PERSONAL INFORMATION
Tryton collects personal information primarily to communicate with our stakeholders, potential stakeholders and others that might be interested in Tryton and to improve communications to them. Information about our employees, contractors and suppliers is also collected for statutory and administrative purposes.
F. PROTECTING PERSONAL INFORMATION
Tryton understands the importance of protecting your personal information and accordingly takes the following precautions:
- Paper information is either under supervision or secured in a locked or restricted area.
- Electronic hardware is either under supervision or secured in a locked or restricted area at all times. In addition, passwords are used on computers.
- Electronic information is transmitted either through a direct line or has identifiers removed or is encrypted.
G. RETENTION AND DESTRUCTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Tryton needs to retain your personal information for some time to ensure that any questions you might have about the services provided can be answered, and for accountability to external regulatory bodies. Contact directories are difficult to systematically destroy, and on your request your contact information will be removed to the extent possible.
Tryton destroys paper files containing personal information by shredding them. Electronic information is destroyed by deleting it and, when the hardware is discarded Tryton ensures that the hard drive is physically destroyed or electronically wiped.
H.YOU CAN LOOK AT YOUR INFORMATION
With few exceptions, you have the right to see what personal information of yours that Tryton holds. If the Tryton representative does not know you, it will be necessary for you to confirm your identity before Tryton can provide you access to your personal information.
Access to your personal information can be denied if:
- denial is required or authorized by law;
- granting access would have an unreasonable impact on other people’s privacy;
- necessary to protect Tryton’ rights and property; or
- the request is frivolous or vexatious.
You may be requested to put your access request or problems in writing. You will then be advised in writing if Tryton cannot grant you access to your personal information.
If you believe there is a mistake in your personal information, you have the right to ask for it to be corrected. This applies to factual information only. Tryton may ask you to provide documentation that our files are wrong. Where Tryton agrees that a mistake was made, Tryton will make the correction and, where appropriate, notify anyone to whom this information was sent. If Tryton disagrees that a mistake was made, a brief statement from you on the point will be included in our file and, as appropriate, Tryton will forward that statement to anyone else who received the earlier information.
