Successful family offices recognize the importance of communication and making sure they are providing value and relevance to the family being served. Your family office maintains www.cabotwellington.com (the “CW Website”) to promote the work of the office and that of the family enterprise as a whole. It is an on-line portal administered by Cabot-Wellington, LLC that allows family members and trusted advisors to access and share information relevant to the Cabot family.
We ask that you use the site responsibly and be mindful that it is a tool to access and share information that is of value to the clients and family members of the family office.
The purpose of this CW Website is to serve as a resource to all family members. The family can benefit from creating a virtual platform where the resources of the family enterprise can be accessed and shared.
For those who are uncertain about the risks of sharing information online, the federal government and technology industry have developed practical tips to help you guard against internet fraud, secure your computer and protect your personal information.
What personal information does the Family Website contain?
The website contains your name, email address, account username (usually the first part of your email address), contact information, family entity governance positions, birthdate, family tree relationships, social media preferences, personal interests, photos, videos and other media, and dates and places of events. Our servers also keep a log of IP addresses that access the site for security reasons, but that data cannot be used to identify any of our users.
How does your personal information get used?
The information on the family website is shared with other family members who are users of the Family Website.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Will CW, LLC disclose any of my personal information to third parties?
No. None of the personal information provided by family members is distributed outside of the Family Website. The personal information provided by our users will not be sold, licensed or otherwise shared by us with advertisers, sponsors, partners or other third parties.

Who we share your data with
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For all users of the password protected areas, we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
May you refuse to provide personal information to the Family Website?
Yes, of course. You may refuse to provide personal information to the Family Website. In fact, family members may access the public area of the site without registering as a user. In addition, the amount of personal information you decide to share within the Family Website is up to you but you must contact CW, LLC site manager if you choose to have your entire profile deleted. The personal information posted on the Family Website is intended for family use only. Naturally, removing or restricting your personal information may compromise the usefulness of the site for you and other family members.
How do you report, change or delete information about yourself or your immediate family?
Your profile is controlled by you and information can be amended or deleted from the Family Website by either you or the CW, LLC site manager. Each family user is responsible to protect his or her username and password. Any family member may modify his/her personal information, including password, by logging into the Family Website, visiting their family directory profile and editing it.
