Business Continuity Plan Statement
Business continuity and disaster recovery are high priorities for Apollo Global Management, Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Apollo”). Apollo’s goal is to minimize downtime, facilitate timely restoration of critical services, and mitigate risks that could impact the ability to serve our clients. Apollo has established and implemented a Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) to provide a framework to prepare Apollo in the event of extended service outages caused by factors beyond its control (e.g., natural disasters, man-made events), and to restore services to the widest extent possible in a minimum time frame. The plan includes both business-as-usual activities related to Apollo’s business continuity (e.g., planning, testing, and training) as well as a Crisis Management Plan (“CMP”) to be used in the event of a crisis situation. The goal of Apollo’s CMP is to:
- Protect and preserve human life, health, and well-being;
- Prevent or minimize loss, damage, or disruption to facilities, resources and operations;
- Stabilize the situation and administer immediate response, assessment, and management of the crisis;
- Provide essential services and operations; and
- Communicate internally with employees and externally with company vendors and stakeholders.
No contingency plan can be failsafe or provide absolute assurance that an interruption in business will not occur or that negative consequences will not ensue from a crisis or event. Because natural disasters and other disruptions are unpredictable and can change over time, a disruption may not have been fully anticipated when the BCP was originally designed or later modified. For these reasons, Apollo is committed to ensuring that its BCP is up-to-date as new information, techniques, and technologies become available. Apollo may alter, add to or eliminate certain aspects of the BCP from time to time.
Notices of Copyright Infringement
Apollo will respond to notices of alleged copyright infringement that comply with applicable law and this section of these Terms.

DMCA Notices may be sent to us at 9 West 57th Street, New York, NY 10019. If you knowingly materially misrepresent that any Content on the Website is infringing your copyright, you may be held liable for damages (including costs and attorneys’ fees) under the DMCA.
