ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS WHOSE PERSONAL DATA IS SUBJECT TO THE GDPR OR THE UK GDPR

Residents of the European Economic Area (“EEA”) and the United Kingdom (“UK” and such residents of either, “EEA/UK Residents”) have certain rights with respect to their personal data pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”) or the UK General Data Protection Regulation (i.e., the GDPR as implemented into UK law, the “UK GDPR”), as applicable and as further described in this section. If you are an EEA/UK Resident and do not agree with the Company’s use of your personal data as set forth in this Privacy Policy, you should not submit your personal data to the Company. However, if you do not submit certain personal data to the Company, or if you exercise your rights to prevent the Company from using such personal data, you should be aware that the Company may not be able to do business with you.

For the purposes of applicable data privacy legislation, the Company is a “controller” of EEA/UK Residents’ personal data. We may transfer, use, store and/or otherwise process your personal data outside of the EEA or the UK, primarily in the U.S., and the laws of the U.S. and certain other destination countries may not offer the same standard of protection for personal data as countries within the EEA or UK. EEA/UK Residents’ personal data also may be processed by staff operating outside the EEA or UK who work for us or for one of our vendors (for example, those who supply support services to us).

In cases of cross-border transfers to countries outside of the EEA or UK, as applicable, if your personal data will be processed in a country with laws that may not be equivalent to, or as protective as, the laws of your home country, the Company will take appropriate steps, in accordance with applicable laws, to require or maintain an adequate level of protection and security for your personal data. For additional information regarding such steps, please contact us using the details set forth at the end of this Privacy Policy.

1. Our bases for collecting and using personal data

We are entitled to use your personal data in the ways set out in this Privacy Policy on the following bases:

  • the use of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract with you for provision of our products and/or services (including, for example, fund subscription agreements and fund limited partnership agreements) or to take steps at your request prior to entering into such a contract;
  • we have legal obligations that we have to discharge (including, for example, legal obligations set forth in fund limited partnership agreements, investment advisory agreements and other operative documents);
  • the use of your personal data is necessary for our legitimate interests (including, for example, in marketing to prospective investors for the fund in which you are invested, successor funds or other Company-sponsored funds);
  • you have consented to such use; and/or
  • to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights for the purposes of legal proceedings.

We do not expect to process “sensitive” or “special” categories of personal data under the GDPR or UK GDPR; however, if we were to process such personal data, we would do so only where we have asked for your explicit consent, or otherwise where this is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims, or as otherwise may be permitted under applicable laws.

Provision of certain of your personal data is a legal and contractual requirement necessary to becoming an investor in any Company-sponsored fund or other pooled vehicle. If you choose not to provide such personal data, we may not be able to perform some of the tasks we need to in order to provide certain products or services to you. If you choose to provide your consent with respect to certain processing of your personal data, you can withdraw it at any time by contacting us.

2. Your rights in connection with personal data

Under certain circumstances, by law you have the right to:

  • request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are processing it lawfully;
  • request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate personal data we hold about you corrected;
  • object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or that of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also may have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes;
  • request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see above);
  • request the restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of personal data about you, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it; and/or
  • request the transfer of your personal data to another party in a machine-readable, commonly used and structured format.

If you want to exercise any of these rights then please contact us using the details set forth at the end of this Privacy Policy. The various rights are not absolute and each is subject to certain exceptions or qualifications. For example, if you wish to withdraw your consent or object to processing, we may need to discuss with you whether our use of your personal data needs to continue for other lawful purposes, such as fulfilment of a legal or contractual requirement.

We will respond to your request within one month of receipt of your request. In some cases, we may not be able to fulfil your request to exercise the right before this date, and may need to request more time. Where we cannot provide a full response to you for any reason, we will let you know about this in our initial reply to your request.

3. Your duty to inform us of changes

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your working relationship with us.

4. Fees

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other above-listed rights). In some cases, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request for access is clearly unfounded or excessive, or if you request multiple copies of the information. Alternatively, we may refuse to comply with the request in such circumstances.

5. What we may need from you

To access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other above-listed rights), we may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the personal data (or to exercise any of your other above-listed rights). This is another appropriate security measure designed to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

6. Right to complain

If you wish to request further information about any of the above-listed rights, or if you are unhappy with how we have handled your personal data, please contact us using the details set forth at the end of this Privacy Policy. If you are not satisfied with our response to your complaint or believe our processing of your information does not comply with the GDPR, UK GDPR or other applicable data privacy legislation, you can make a complaint to the supervisory authority in your country. For example, in the UK you should contact the Information Commissioner’s Office: https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/ or 0303 123 1113.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR INDIVIDUALS WHOSE PERSONAL INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO THE CCPA/CPRA

Residents of the state of California have certain rights with respect to their personal information pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”) and the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), as applicable and as further described in this section. Please note that the rights under the CCPA and the CPRA do not apply to personal information collected, processed, sold or disclosed subject to the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (Public Law 106-102), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (12 CFR 1022) and/or the California Financial Information Privacy Act. Nor do the rights set forth below in this section apply to (i) Company personnel or job applicants seeking opportunities at the Company or (ii) personnel working on behalf of business partners with whom we are conducting business.

Under certain circumstances, under the CCPA and the CPRA you may have the right to:

  • request that we disclose, free of charge, the categories and specific pieces of personal information we collect about you (and, if applicable, sell or otherwise disclose to a third party and the categories of such third parties), the sources from which such personal information was collected, and the business purpose for collecting, selling or disclosing such personal information;
  • choose to opt out of the sale of your personal information. Currently, we do not sell your personal information or share your personal information with third parties for purposes of cross-context behavioral advertising;  
  • request that we delete the personal information we have collected about you; and
  • request that we correct any inaccurate personal information we have collected about you.

We will not discriminate against any California resident who exercises the rights set forth in this section.

You have the right to appoint an authorized agent to exercise these rights on your behalf. If you want to exercise any of these rights, or have your authorized agent exercise any of these rights on your behalf, then please contact us using the details set forth at the end of this Privacy Policy. To exercise any of these rights, we may need to request specific information from you or your authorized agent to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to exercise these rights.

These rights are not absolute and each is subject to certain exceptions or qualifications. For example, if you are currently an investor in one of our funds and you request that we delete the personal information we have collected about you, the CCPA and the CPRA permit us to deny such request and retain your personal information to the extent necessary to manage the applicable fund and our business relationship with you in connection with that fund.

For consumers with disabilities who need to access this Privacy Policy in an alternative format, please contact us using the details set forth at the end of this Privacy Policy.

4 For the purposes of this section, “personal information” has the meaning given to such term in the CCPA.
