When you use our Website and Services, you trust us with your data and information. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") is meant to help you understand what data and information we collect, why we collect it, and what we do with it. This is important and we hope you will take the time to read it carefully.



This Privacy Policy is published in compliance with applicable laws.


Protecting your privacy and the security of your personal information is of utmost importance to us. This Privacy Policy describes your privacy rights regarding our collection, use, storage, sharing and protection of your personal data and information. This Privacy Policy applies to personal data and information collected by us in connection with the Services.


This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and forms part of the Terms of Service. Capitalized terms used but not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning attributed to it in our Terms of Service.



When you access and/or use the Website and the Services, you specifically accept this Privacy Policy.


By accessing, browsing and/or using the Website and Services, you are specifically consenting to Aurigin collecting, using and disclosing your personal data and information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data and information in this way, please do not use the Website and the Services or otherwise provide us with your personal data and information.


You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is a part of the Terms of Service, and you unconditionally agree that becoming a user of the Website and its Services signifies your: (i) assent to this Privacy Policy; and (ii) consent to us collecting, processing and/or disclosing your personal data or information in the manner and for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. Your visit to the Website and use of the Services is subject to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service.


Collection, use and disclosure of information which has been designated as personal data or information under the applicable laws require your express consent. By affirming your assent to this Privacy Policy, you provide your express consent to such use, collection and disclosure as required under applicable law.

Phone number


Company name


Corporate information




Aurigin password (in an encrypted form)


LinkedIn public profile (only if signed in via LinkedIn.com)


Skype ID (if shared by the user)


Email contacts on Gmail (if user gives us access to his Google address book for availing certain paid Services without any charge)


We collect all corporate information provided by our users. For example, in the case of investors, such information may include, inter alia, details of investors (private equity funds, family offices and other financial institutions), their investment criteria, including target geography, revenue/EBIDTA range and other additional information on the type of companies they want to acquire or invest in, and in the case of target entities, their investment banks (representing a corporate) or the corporates themselves, company or asset or project information including teasers, information memorandums or financials.

Except to the extent provided in the Privacy Policy, we keep contact details (email and phone number) completely confidential. Please note that although two relevant users are asked to express their interest to connect with the other, in many cases a user may be directly connected with the other user if such user chooses to connect. Also, in some cases, two users could be connected over email with one another if one of them wishes to do so and Aurigin in its assessment decides that the introduction is relevant to both users. In such cases, we also collect information relating to the messages exchanged between two users on the Website or otherwise by way of email or any other medium.
