Our use of cookies and other data collection technology.

The Website may from time to time use cookies, pixel tags (also known as web beacons, flash cookies, clear GIFs or web bugs) and similar technology.

A cookie is a small data file that contains a unique identification number that the Website stores on your computer when you visit a website. The cookie stores information about your computer, the type of browser you use and how many times your computer visits a certain website. To learn more about cookies generally, visit

Cookies enable GCS to track how often you and other users visit the Website and the specific pages visited and other user actions. You can refuse to use cookies by turning them off in your browser. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use the Website. A pixel tag is computer code that contains a unique identifier that enables us to monitor user activity and traffic on the Website. We may use pixel tags to gather aggregate information on visits to the Website and assist with other features.

We also use Google Analytics, which is a Google service that collects aggregate information about use of the Website and reports website trends. Google Analytics does not directly identify individual clients or other users. You can learn about Google’s practices here.

Managing cookies: where you are located in the EEA/UK, on your first visit to our website, on our homepage you will see a cookie banner informing you why cookies are used, and asking you to consent to non-essential cookies if you agree with us using them (or “Accept All”). If you do not agree, you can choose to “Reject All”. Please note that you cannot disable strictly necessary cookies or similar technologies since these affect the functionality of our website and your ability to use certain features and functionalities.

Our Policy On Do Not Track Signals: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a client or other user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, GCS, like many other website operators, does not respond to DNT signals.

How we share information.

We may share personal information collected through the Website with third parties for the purposes described below. By using this Website, you authorize us to share such information, subject to applicable law and your right to withdraw your consent as described in “Your Choices About Your Information” below.

For legitimate business purposes. We may make certain disclosures permitted by law for our business purposes, such as disclosures to our accountants, auditors and lawyers.

With third-party service providers. We may disclose information as needed to third-party service providers that help us operate and improve the Website, such as for hosting and maintenance, analytics and security operations.

For corporate transactions. We disclose information if we are involved in a merger, sale, acquisition, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, bankruptcy or other change of ownership or control.

When required by law or requested by regulators or government. Applicable law may require us and third parties that perform services on our behalf to comply with a legal process (such as a court order, subpoena or search warrant) or in connection with a government or regulatory request or investigation. In addition, we may disclose information for the prevention or detection of crime (subject in each case to applicable law). For example, we may be required to provide to the federal government identifying information about our clients and other persons pursuant to regulations designed to detect or prevent money laundering or fraud. Nothing in this Website Privacy Policy prevents reporting possible violations of law to any governmental authority or other disclosures protected under the whistleblower provisions of applicable law.

To protect and enforce legal rights. We also may disclose information: (i) if disclosure would mitigate our liability in an actual or threatened lawsuit; (ii) as necessary or advisable to protect the legal rights, property or safety of GCS, our clients, fund investors or other third parties; (iii) to enforce our agreements with you; and (iv) to investigate, prevent, or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing.

At your request or with your consent. In certain circumstances, we may ask for your consent to share your information with third parties. When we do, we will make clear why we want to share the information.

We do not disclose personal information about our current, prospective, or former customers to unaffiliated third parties for their telemarketing, direct mail or other marketing purposes.

How we protect and retain information.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect personal information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.

We restrict access to each client’s personal information to those employees who have a business reason to know that information and all of our employees are subject to strict obligations of confidentiality.

Although we take precautions intended to help protect information that we process, no system or electronic data transmission is completely secure. Any electronic transmission of your information is at your own risk and we expect that you will use appropriate security measures to protect your personal information. In particular, email sent to us may not be secure and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. We may suspend your use of the Website without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security.

We retain personal information as necessary for our legitimate business purposes (e.g., to respond to your inquiries, provide you with the services you have requested, or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide services to you (for example, for as long as you have an account and contract with us); whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject (for example, certain laws require us to keep records of your transactions for a certain period of time before we can delete them); and whether retention is advisable considering our legal position (such as, for statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations). From time to time, we may review the purpose for which personal information has been collected and decide to delete or anonymize it.

Your choices about your information.

If you would like to review, correct, delete or restrict our use of personal information about you that you previously provided to us or if you would like to receive an electronic copy of your personal information for purposes of transmitting it to another company (in each case, when these rights are provided to you by law), please contact us using the contact information below. In your request, please make clear the personal information to which your request relates and the actions you would like us to take. For your protection, we will verify your identity before responding to your request, and will process your request in compliance with applicable law. Please note that we may not allow you to review or delete certain data for legal, security or other reasons.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection authority about how we process your personal information.

International transfers of personal information.

If you are an individual investor located in the EEA or the UK, we may transfer your personal information to the U.S. where our offices are located, subject to suitable data protection safeguards (when required).
