Purpose and Consent

Crown collects and maintains Personal Information about Clients and Investors in connection with the offering and sale of interests in Crown funds, the provision of various realty related services, Client/Investor communications, or otherwise as required by law.

We collect and maintain Personal Information in order to:

  • Subscription agreements or other forms that are submitted by an investor or prospective investor or client;
  • Service agreements;
  • Transactions with Crown or any of its affiliates;
  • Meetings and telephone conversations between Crown and a Client;
  • Visits to Crown’s websites, mobile applications, social media visits to Crown’s properties; and
  • Other information provided.

A Client/Investor may withdraw all or part of their consent for the collection, use or disclose of Personal Information at any time upon reasonable notice to Crown in writing, and subject to legal or contractual restrictions. The withdrawal of consent may affect Crown’s ability to continue to provide Services.



Personal Information shall not be used or disclosed for purposes other than those for which it was collected.  Crown may disclose Personal Information to third parties and to Crown affiliates, when necessary and without the consent of a Client, including:

  • service providers, such as lenders, financial institutions, government authorities, or brokers used to finance or facilitate transactions by, or operations of, a Crown fund;
  • other service providers such as accounting, legal, or tax preparation services;
  • regulatory, tax or other government authorities and agencies. Crown will only disclose Personal Information to a governmental entity or other regulatory or self-regulatory organization when required to do so by such laws, regulations, or by court order;
  • Crown affiliates for various purposes permitted by law, including affiliates’ advertising and marketing of their products and services to a Client/Investor;
  • Other individuals or entities, when Crown believes that disclosure is necessary to detect, prevent or report suspicious activities, prevent physical harm, financial loss or violations of agreements and policies; and
  • For specific products or services, including third-party fintech apps and data aggregators, when a Client/Investor has provided their consent.

The collection of Client information will be limited internally to those functions for which it is necessary for Crown to provide Services to a Client and Investors, and for third-party service providers to be able to provide services to Crown. Before Crown may use Personal Information for a purpose not previously identified to a Client, the new purpose shall be identified and consent will be obtained from the Client before the information is used for the new purpose, unless the use is required by law.  Crown has established policies and procedures, including an employee Code of Conduct and attestation of compliance, to ensure Client and Investor confidentiality.


Video Surveillance

For safety and security reasons, Crown may use video surveillance technologies at Crown managed properties to monitor the public areas of those properties. Video images of individuals that access these properties and/or vehicles and license plate numbers may be captured. We will post notices at the point of entry of any such areas where we may use this technology. If you do not wish to have your images captured by us, please do not enter those areas.

We may disclose video surveillance footage to law enforcement or other government agencies where we believe such disclosure is: (i) permitted or required by law; (ii) necessary to protect our properties, visitors, customers or employees; or (iii) reasonable in connection with a law enforcement investigation.



Crown maintains physical, electronic and procedural controls consistent with regulatory standards to safeguard Personal Information in its possession.  Reasonable measures (such as systems access security controls, safeguards to detect and prevent security system failures, restricted access and employee training) have been implemented to help protect Personal Information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure.

Crown remains responsible for Personal Information while it is in the hands of third parties and protects this information through contractual agreements to afford the same level of protection as given by Crown. Crown does not sell or lease Personal Information to third parties nor does it share Personal Information with third parties for their marketing purposes.  It should be noted however, that security risks cannot be fully eliminated.  Therefore, Clients and Investors are requested to:

  • Create a strong and unique password for devices and user accounts.
  • Never share passwords (note that Crown will never ask for a password, including in any unsolicited communication such as letters, phone calls or email messages).
  • Log out of their user account once finished using it.
