Privacy Notice

Protecting your privacy is important to Baron Funds®, Baron Capital, Inc. and our employees. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. The following policy serves as a standard for all Baron Capital, Inc. employees for collection, use, retention and security of nonpublic personal information.

"Nonpublic personal information" is nonpublic information about you that we obtain in connection with providing a financial product or service to you.

We collect nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources:

Information we receive from you on applications or other forms, and information about your transactions with us, our affiliates, or others.

We may share your name and address among affiliates for purposes of sending you information about products of ours that we believe may be of interest to you and inform you of our upcoming investors' conference.

We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers to anyone, except as permitted by law. Examples of permitted disclosures under the law include sharing with companies that work for us to provide you service, such as a transfer agent or mailing house. All such companies act on our behalf, are contractually obligated to keep the information that we provide to them confidential, and use the information only to provide the services that we have asked them to perform for you and us.

We restrict access to nonpublic information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.

Regarding the information we collect
Some personal and demographic information about you may be collected through our web site.

We urge you to read DST's privacy policy before providing your personal information.
