Last Updated: April 8, 2024

1. Our Commitment to Privacy

Your privacy is important to us. TA Associates Management, L.P. and its subsidiaries, including TA Associates (UK), LLP (“TA”, “our” or “us”) have developed this Privacy Policy to explain our practices for personal data collected via the website located at (the “Site”) and in connection with other interactions with us, such as when you participate in events or correspond with us. This Privacy Policy describes what personal data we collect, how we use and protect that data and your choices in relation to your data.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the privacy practices of companies we do not control (including any portfolio companies), nor to any information obtained or collected in connection with a separate business relationship with TA, including as an investor in a TA investment fund.

TA is responsible for the processing of personal data under this Privacy Policy (as a controller or business, where provided under applicable law). If you have any questions concerning this Privacy Policy, please contact us as described under the “Contact Information” section below.

2. The Information We Collect

Information you provide:

  • In general, you can visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal data.
  • We collect your personal data when you decide to interact with us, such as via email, post or phone. This personal data may include your name, email address, physical address, title, telephone number.
  • We collect personal data about you when you register for events, including your business contact information, job title and headshot, and any other personal data that you disclose to us, such as dietary and access requirements, shirt size, comments, or requests.
  • With your consent, we may take photos and video recordings of you during our events. We will inform you if this is happening.
  • If you join a Zoom meeting hosted by us we may collect your personal data. We strongly advise you to carefully read the contents of Zoom’s privacy policy before joining one of our meetings. We may use Zoom’s AI Companion feature when you join a Zoom meeting hosted by us. When we activate this on our Zoom meetings, Zoom will record and transcribe those conversations in order to prepare summaries of our discussions. We will use these summaries to improve our business processes. Zoom may also use your personal data in de-identified and aggregate form to improve its products and services.

Information we collect automatically: TA’s server collects certain information about your use of, and interaction with, the Site, including information about how users are directed to our Site and visitor paths through the Site (which helps us improve Site design and usefulness), unique visitors and Internet Protocol (“IP”) addresses (used to improve our level of service and the content of our Site).

Cookies: We use cookies in connection with the operation of this Site. A “cookie” is a piece of information sent to your browser by a website you visit.

Types of Cookies Used. The Site uses the following technologies:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: We use session cookies to provide you with the services available through the Site and to use some of their features.

For example, we track a user’s filters so that when the user has filtered the Portfolio page and clicks into a detail page (e.g., company description page), the back button takes the user back to the original filtered status instead of starting over. These cookies are not essential for using and navigating the Site. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable. You can block or delete these cookies by changing the browser settings as explained under the “Your Choices” section below.

Our third-party service providers will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Site, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and for providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Our third-party service providers also may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on behalf of our service providers.

6. Data Subject Rights

Depending on your residency, you may have certain data subject rights. These rights vary by state and country, but they may include the right to:

7. Data Retention

We will keep your personal data for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Policy, for as long as we have a legitimate business need to do so, or as required by law (e.g., for tax, legal, accounting or other purposes), whichever is the longer.
To determine the appropriate retention period for your personal data, we will consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we use your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
