Privacy Policy

At CIM Group® (CIM), we are committed to maintaining the confidentiality of your personal and financial information. The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to explain the types of Personally Identifiable Information or Non-Personally Identifiable Information that CIM collects, how the information is obtained, how it is used and the choices that you have regarding our use of, and your ability to review and correct, the information.

This Privacy Policy applies for all business activities involving CIM, including users accessing our website or parties engaging in communications or transactions with CIM.

Why We Collect Information About You

Our primary goals in collecting information are to provide clients with superior service and to provide all individuals with a smooth, efficient and personalized experience. We utilize this information to:

  • Identify your customer relationship with CIM and assist you in creating and maintaining a customer account;
  • Process transactions in and relating to your account;
  • Oversee distribution processing, transfers, etc.;
  • Evaluate and improve our methods of communication;
  • Communicate relevant information with the custodians, transfer agents, and/or if applicable, your broker/dealer or financial advisor or other parties involved in the processing, servicing or management of your account; and
  • Comply with all applicable federal and state regulatory obligations.

In addition, we may utilize this information to market investment products or services that may be consistent with your financial profile.

What Information We Collect

The information we collect generally falls into the following two categories: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

  • Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. The Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, employer, job title, date of birth, Social Security number, bank account information, financial information such as your income and net worth, and information about your transactions with us such as the investment amount and any contributions and/or distributions.
  • Non-Personally Identifiable Information: This refers to information that does not, by itself, identify a specific individual. The Non-Personally Identifiable Information we collect may include aggregated statistical data, or data not attributable to a specific person or entity.

We do not connect or otherwise make any association between the Personally Identifiable Information and the Non-Personally Identifiable Information we collect.

How We Collect Information

We may request Personally Identifiable Information when you request information from or correspond with us. When you contact our Shareholder Relations department for assistance, or invest in a new program with us, we may ask for Personally Identifiable Information in order to fulfill your requested service and to contact you in the future.

Our web servers may automatically recognize a visitor’s domain name (such as .com, .edu, etc.), the web page from which a visitor enters our website, which pages a visitor visits on our website and on certain other websites, and/or how much time a visitor spends on each page. This information does not reveal a visitor’s identity. We aggregate this information and use it to evaluate and improve our website.

Whether you choose to provide any particular information requested by CIM is completely your own choice. But, if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to receive or access certain services, offers and information.

Using Information About You

CIM does not sell or share customer information to outside marketers without your consent. We may share your Personally Identifiable Information with others, but only in certain limited situations: (i) within our corporate group or among our affiliated entities, all of which follow this Privacy Policy or equivalent privacy policies; (ii) with our service providers or other parties who agree to keep the information confidential and use it only on behalf of CIM; (iii) if your investment is transferred from your current custodian to another custodian, we provide your general information, tax identification number and other transfer documents to the new custodian on your behalf; and (iv) as otherwise agreed by you.

In some cases, we may be required to disclose certain information to comply with the law, the charter of the applicable entity into which you invest, or an investigation or a legal process, such as a court order or subpoena. We may disclose information when we believe that such a release is reasonably necessary to enforce or protect our rights.

On occasion, we may send you communications about our company and our products. If you change your mind about receiving marketing communications from us and wish not to receive further marketing communications from us, please let us know that you would like to “opt out” by email at shareholderrelations@cimgroup.com or by calling us at 866.907.2653.

Protecting Your Information

Our policy is to restrict access to your Personally Identifiable Information to only those employees, service providers and other third parties who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain commercially reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards consistent with industry standards and other applicable standards as required by law and we require service providers and third parties to do the same.

Policy Changes

To improve the services we can offer you, CIM may opt to expand our capabilities for obtaining information about users in the future. CIM will update this Privacy Policy when necessary to ensure that you are aware of developments in this area.

We will post those changes on our websites and update our Privacy Policy so that you will know what information we collect online, how we use it and what choices you have. Please be sure to check this page before proceeding to use our websites. Regardless of any changes we make to our Privacy Policy, we will always use your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with the version of the Privacy Policy in place at the time you provided your information, unless you give your express consent for us to do otherwise.

In the event of any conflict between the Additional Privacy Terms and this Privacy Policy, the Additional Privacy Terms shall prevail.

Business Transfers

As CIM continues to develop its business, we may sell or buy entities, subsidiaries or business units. In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets. Such information remains subject to any pre-existing Privacy Policy (unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise). In the event that CIM, or related parties are acquired in whole or in part, Personally Identifiable Information may be one of the transferred assets.

Forward-Looking Statements

Statements made in this web site may include forward-looking statements relating to CIM Group's business and financial outlook, which are based on CIM Group's current expectations, estimates, forecasts and projections. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties, estimates and assumptions that are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from those expressed in these forward-looking statements. Readers, therefore, should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and CIM Group undertakes no obligation to update any such statement to reflect new information, the occurrence of future events or circumstances or otherwise. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those indicated by the forward-looking statements. Included among these factors are changes in general economic conditions, including changes in the economic conditions affecting industries in which our principal tenants compete, our ability to timely lease or re-lease space at current or anticipated rents, our ability to achieve economies of scale over time, the demand for tenant services beyond those traditionally provided by landlords, changes in interest rates, changes in operating costs, changes in laws and regulations, environmental contamination events, the occurrence of uninsured or underinsured events, our ability to attract and retain high-quality personnel at a reasonable cost in a competitive labor environment, future demand for our debt and equity securities and offerings, our ability to refinance our debt on reasonable terms at maturity, our ability to complete current and future development projects on time and on schedule, market conditions in existence at the time we sell assets, and joint venture and partnership risks.

Assets Owned and Operated represents (i) (a) for real assets, the aggregate total gross assets (GAV) at fair value, including the shares of such assets owned by joint venture partners and co-investments, owned and operated by CIM on behalf of partners (including where CIM invests alongside for its own account) and co-investors, whether or not CIM has investment discretion or (b) for operating companies, the aggregate GAV less debt, including the shares of such assets owned by joint venture partners and co-investments, owned and operated by CIM on behalf of partners (including where CIM invests alongside for its own account) and co-investors, whether or not CIM has investment discretion (not in duplication of the assets described in (i)(a)), plus (ii) the aggregate unfunded commitments, as of September 30, 2017 (“Report Date”). The GAV is calculated in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles on a fair value basis (the “Book Value”) and generally represents the investment’s third-party appraised value as of Report Date other than as described below with respect to CIM REIT, but in the case of the to-be-acquired company described below GAV or Book Value generally represents undepreciated cost (as reflected in SEC-filed financial statements). The only investment currently held by CIM REIT consists of shares of common stock of CIM Commercial Trust Corporation, a publicly traded company; the Book Value of CIM REIT is determined by assuming the underlying assets of CMCT are liquidated based upon management’s estimate of fair value. CIM does not presently view the price of CMCT’s common stock shares to be a meaningful indication of the fair value of the CIM REIT’s interest in CMCT due to the fact that the publicly-traded shares of CMCT common stock represent less than 3% of the outstanding shares of CMCT and are thinly-traded. Assets Owned and Operated also includes the assets owned/operated by Cole Capital, a company that a CIM affiliate has acquired. The assets owned/operated by Cole Capital represent approximately $7.6 billion of CIM's reported Assets Owned and Operated of $25.7 billion. Equity Owned and Operated, representing the NAV (as defined below) before incentive fee allocation, plus binding unfunded commitments, is $15.3 billion as of the Report Date. NAV is based upon the aggregate amounts that would be distributable assuming a “hypothetical liquidation” on the date of determination, assuming that: (x) investments are sold at their Book Value (as defined above); (y) debts are paid and other assets are collected; and (z) appropriate adjustments and/or allocations between equity investors are made in accordance with applicable documents, in each case as determined in accordance with applicable accounting guidance. Assets Owned and Operated for CMMT (which represents assets under management) is $0.3 billion as of the Report Date and Equity Owned and Operated for CMMT (which represents equity under management) is $0.3 billion as of the Report Date.
