Welcome to the website of Griffin Realty Trust, Inc. (“GRT”). This privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) only applies to information collection and use practices on the GRT website or any other site, application or platform that links to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is subject to the Terms and Conditions of Use.  This Privacy Policy describes how GRT (“we”, “our” or “us”) collects, uses, discloses and protects Personal Information about you. 

Personal Information we Collect

Personal Information covered by this Privacy Policy may include: 

(a) identifiers and contact information (e.g., name, address, phone number and email address); 

(b) commercial data (e.g., invoices, payment terms and schedules, financial account information, and information about services rendered); 

(c) device identifiers (e.g., IP and MAC addresses, cookie identifiers); and

We may request and/or collect personal information from you (“Personal Information”) when you: (a) visit the GRT website; (b) contact GRT; and/or (c) request information or send questions, inquires, or comments to GRT. We may also collect Personal Information that you elect to provide to us. We may also automatically collect Personal Information as you interact with us, through cookies and similar technologies.

Use and Disclosure of Information
We use the Personal Information that you provide to respond to your inquiries or questions about GRT, for the purposes indicated or which may reasonably be inferred by your voluntary provision of such Personal Information, and otherwise in connection with the conduct of GRT’s business and operations. GRT may also use your Personal Information, alone or in combination with the information submitted by other users or that we may otherwise collect about you, to analyze and improve our website and services.  

We may share your information with our affiliates, agents, representatives, service providers, contractors and business partners as relevant to our business and operations.  Third party contractors or service providers that have access to your Personal Information are also expected to protect such Personal Information in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy and to use such Personal Information only to carry out the activities or services they are performing for you or for GRT.

GRT might also disclose Personal Information if in our opinion such disclosure is required: (a) by law; (b) to protect and/or defend GRT’s rights; and/or (c) to protect the personal safety of any individual. In addition, in the event that all or substantially all of GRT’s ownership and/or assets may be transferred or sold to, or GRT is merged with, another entity, or there is a change of control of GRT, GRT may transfer Personal Information to the successor entity, both prior to the transaction for evaluation, subject to confidentiality obligations, or post-transaction.

We also use cookies and related digital tracking technologies. This may involve us or third parties collecting Personal Information about online activities over time and across third party websites or online services. For more information on cookies, see the Cookies section below.

We may de-identify and aggregate any Personal Information we collect and use it for statistical analysis or for any purpose.

Google Analytics

As noted above, our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics works using cookies. Google Analytics cookies collect your IP address; however, because IP anonymization is used on this website, your IP address will be shortened (and therefore anonymized) as soon as technically possible and before it is stored or otherwise used in connection with Google Analytics. We use the information collected by Google Analytics cookies to find out about how visitors use our website. Google will not combine the IP address sent by your browser in connection with Google Analytics with other data. You can prevent Google Analytics cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly. You can also opt-out of Google Analytics by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at www.google.com.
