How we use your personal data
Below we set out the purposes that we use your personal data for and the legal bases that we rely on to ensure that your personal data is processed lawfully:
to perform our contract with you when you act as an intermediary;
to perform a contract with you when you invest in our fund or when we invest in a business e.g. to verify your identity, admitting an investor to the fund, maintaining a share register and providing information to you;
to comply with our legal obligations, notably under company and tax law, including the Companies Act, the OECD Common Reporting Standard (“CRS”), the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (“FATCA”) and all applicable AML, KYC and CTF laws, and screening against sanctions lists;

mitigating business and operational risks;

ensuring that our associates, agents and third party service providers also comply with all relevant legislation;
When evaluating whether legitimate interests can be relied on as a legal basis for the activities above we are required to carry out a balancing test to ensure that the use of your personal data will not be overridden by your fundamental rights and freedoms. In certain circumstances we will seek your consent and you will have the right to withdraw such consent at any time.
What happens if you fail to provide the requested personal data for application or due diligence processes?
If, for example, you fail to correctly complete all the necessary sections on an application / subscription form or fail to provide the correct information (e.g. for AML, KYC, CTF, FATCA or CRS) we may reject or delay your application / subscription until the relevant information is received or we may decide not proceed with a transaction or a business relationship.
Who do we share your personal data with?
We may share your personal data for the purposes set out in the Privacy Notice with our associates, intermediaries, agents, third party service providers and delegates, such as registrars, auditors, professional advisers and third party service providers.
Where we use a third party who process your personal data as a processor we will ensure that they do so in accordance with our instructions and that they put appropriate measures in place to protect your data.
We may allow third parties who we share your personal data with to process your data as controllers solely for the purpose of providing services to us. In such cases we will ensure that these controllers will process your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Notice and in accordance with applicable laws. We do not allow third party service providers to market to you unless they obtain your consent. We may also share your personal data with a potential buyer in connection with any proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of the business.
Keeping your data secure
We have put in place appropriate security measures to prevent your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal information to those employees, agents, contractors and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal information on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.
While we will use all reasonable efforts to safeguard your personal data, you acknowledge that the use of the Internet is not entirely secure and for this reason we cannot guarantee the security or integrity of any personal data that are transferred via the internet. If you have any particular concerns about your information, please contact us (see ‘Contacting us?’ below).
We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected breach where we are legally required to do so.
Transfers of your information out of the UK & the EEA
As we use a number of cloud-based systems your personal data may be transferred outside the United Kingdom & the European Economic Area. In such cases we will ensure that adequate safeguards are put in place to ensure the security of your personal data.
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. For example, in accordance with our legal and regulatory requirements, we will retain investors’ records for a minimum period of at least six years following the termination of our agreement with such investors. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
In some circumstances we may anonymise your personal information so that it can no longer be associated with you.
