Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives our clients the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

BIOMETRIC DATA POLICY
Purpose and Scope
Certain third-party services used by Pentwater Capital Management LP (“PCM”), including but not limited to software or products offered by Bloomberg Professional Services and/or Bloomberg Finance L.P., such as the Bloomberg Terminal, may use Biometric Data (as defined below) for identity verification and authentication purposes. To the extent that PCM collects or is in possession of any Biometric Data, this Biometric Data Policy (the “Policy”) sets forth PCM’s policy for the collection, use, safeguarding, storage, retention and destruction of Biometric Data.
It is PCM’s policy to ensure that employee data collected by or in possession of PCM is used and handled in accordance with the Illinois Biometric Information privacy Act (“BIPA”) and all other applicable laws.
Biometric Identifier means a retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry. Biometric identifiers do not include writing samples, written signatures, photographs, human biological samples used for valid scientific testing or screening, demographic data, tattoo descriptions, or physical descriptions such as height, weight, hair color, or eye color. Biometric identifiers do not include donated organs, tissues, or parts as defined in the Illinois Anatomical Gift Act or blood or serum stored on behalf of recipients or potential recipients of living or cadaveric transplants and obtained or stored by a federally designated organ procurement agency. Biometric identifiers do not include biological materials regulated under the Genetic Information Privacy Act. Biometric identifiers do not include information captured from a patient in a health care setting or information collected, used, or stored for health care treatment, payment, or operations under the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Biometric identifiers do not include an X-ray, roentgen process, computed tomography, MRI, PET scan, mammography, or other image or film of the human anatomy used to diagnose, prognose, or treat an illness or other medical condition or to further validate scientific testing or screening.
Biometric Information means any information, regardless of how it is captured, converted, stored, or shared, based on an individuals’ Biometric Identifier used to identify any individual. Biometric Information does not include information derived from items or procedures excluded under the definition of Biometric Identifiers.
Biometric Data means both or either of Biometric Identifier or Biometric Information.
Purpose of Collection
PCM or one of the third-party services it uses may collect, possess, store, and/or use employee Biometric Data for identity verification and authentication purposes.
To the extent PCM has access to any Biometric Data, PCM will not disclose, re-disclose or otherwise disseminate any Biometric Data unless:
PCM will not knowingly sell, lease, trade, or otherwise profit from an employee’s Biometric Data.
PCM will retain employee Biometric Data, if it is retained at all, until the first of the following options occurs:
To the extent PCM collects or possess Biometric Data, it shall maintain reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to store, transmit, and protect from disclosure any such Biometric Data collected, stored or retained. Such storage, transmission, and protection from disclosure shall be performed in a manner that is the same or more protective than the manner PCM transmits, stores, and protect from disclosure other confidential and sensitive information, including personal information that can be used to uniquely identify an individual or an individual’s account or property, such as genetic markers, genetic testing confirmation, account numbers, PINs, driver’s license numbers and social security numbers.
The Chief Compliance Officer of PCM is responsible for the enforcement and administration of this Policy. If you have any questions regarding this policy or if you have questions that are not addressed in this policy, please contact a compliance team member.
