The Meridian Group (“Meridian”) realizes that privacy is an important issue and we take the privacy of your information seriously. Please read the following statement to understand how we collect, use and safeguard the information you may provide to us via this website.  This Privacy Statement may be revised from time to time, so please revisit this page often to remain fully informed of our policies.


This Privacy Statement applies to information and data you may provide to us or we otherwise collect from you via the website (the “Site”). By using the Site, or voluntarily providing your information to us, you consent to the collection and use of all information as set forth in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement please do not provide us with any information.

This Privacy Statement does not apply to any information that may be collected by Meridian other than via the Site (such as through any offline method). This statement also does not apply to information collected by third party services, websites, advertisements or applications associated with, linked to or otherwise accessible from the Site. In this regard, note that Meridian uses a third party service provider, Intralinks, Inc. (“IntraLinks”), to host and manage access to certain Meridian fund investor information provided by Meridian, and such information resides at an IntraLinks website (the “IntraLinks Site”). You may be providing certain personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information to IntraLinks through the IntraLinks Site. The information collected or received by such third parties (including IntraLinks through the IntraLinks Site) is subject to such third party’s own privacy policies and under no circumstances is Meridian responsible or liable for such third party’s compliance therewith. You are urged to review the privacy policies of such third parties.


Via the Site, Meridian collects from you: (i) personally identifiable information, and (ii) technical and other information.   

  • General Web Site Visitors.  When you browse the Site, no personally identifiable information is collected.
  • Contacting Us.  The Site permits you to reach out to us via our Contact Us form. Whenever you send an email via the Contact Us form on the Site, you may be providing us with your first name, last name, email address, telephone number and any information you choose to provide in the text of your message. For example, you may choose to provide your mailing address or other information necessary or helpful for us to address your query or concern.
  • Technical and Other Information.  While you are browsing the Site, we automatically log your IP address (a number assigned to your computer when you use the Internet) and your activity while using the Site.  Additionally, in order to personalize and enhance your experience on the Site, we may also collect information through “cookies.”  Cookies are small strings of text that are sent by the Site to your browser and then stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive.  We use cookies to help diagnose problems with our servers and to administer the Site. We also use cookies to gather broad demographic information and to help identify you in respect to visits to the Site so that we may improve your user experience, and to determine whether you visited the Site from a particular Internet link or advertisement. Some of our service providers or vendors may also use cookies in connection with our Site. For example, we use Google Analytics – a popular web-based performance analysis service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how visitors use the Site. While a code in the cookie file enables the Site to label you as a particular user, including identifying you by name or other personally identifiable information, such cookie files are encrypted in order to protect your information. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but it is possible to change your browser setup so that it does not accept cookies.  However, rejecting cookies may prevent you from accessing certain portions of the Site.
  • Information From IntraLinks. If you are an investor in a Meridian fund, and elect to obtain information about your fund account online through the IntraLinks Site, we will receive from IntraLinks information about your access to and use of the IntraLinks Site, including usage log information, and information about your browser and other local computer settings used to troubleshoot or avoid potential access problems.


We do not engage in the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third party websites or online services.  Accordingly, we do not currently process or comply with any web browser’s “do not track” signal or other mechanisms that provide consumers with the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third party websites.  However, we may from time to time allow third party companies to collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit our Site which, through “tracking technologies,” can be combined with non-personally identifiable information during your visits to other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you.  These companies typically use a cookie or a third party web beacon to collect this information.  To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice, you can visit, and you may opt out of receiving cookies from third party advertising networks by going to the Network Advertising Initiative’s cookie opt out page, which can be found at


  • Our Use of Information.  We collect, retain, and use your personally identifiable information for legitimate business purposes only, including, without limitation, the following: to respond to an inquiry from you or address a request submitted by you (including contacting you directly to request additional information to process your inquiry or request); to contact you and to provide you with information regarding Meridian and/or our services; to operate or improve the Site; to correspond with you regarding the Site or our services; to inform you of developments with respect to Meridian or about services, projects or events we believe may be of interest to you; to monitor Site visitor traffic patterns and Site usage; to comply with applicable laws, regulations and rules, and requests of relevant law enforcement and/or other governmental agencies; to enforce our Terms of Use; and/or to protect the rights, property, or safety of Meridian, our users, and others.
