The DPA, effective September 30, 2019, is applicable to individual persons associated with any Cayman Island-domiciled investment vehicle offered by the RIA. The DPA is based on a set of internationally recognized privacy principles, and provides a framework of rights and duties designed to give individuals greater control over their personal data. This does not change the manner in which we use or intend to use your personal data. The RIA recognizes the importance of safeguarding personal data and the trust clients and investors place in the RIA in allowing us to access this data. It is important to note that privacy practices may vary among the jurisdictions in which we operate to reflect local practices and legal requirements.

In the RIA’s use of Investor Data, the RIA will be characterized as a “data controller” for the purposes of the DPA. The Investment Vehicle’s and the General Partner’s/Directors’ affiliates and delegates may act as “data processors” for the purposes of the DPA.

If you are a corporate investor (including, for these purposes, legal arrangements such as trusts or exempted limited partnerships) that provides the RIA with Investor Data on individuals connected to you for any reason in relation to your investment with the RIA, this will be relevant for those individuals and you should transmit this document to such individuals or otherwise advise them of its content.
How We May Use Your Personal Data

The RIA and such authorized affiliates, in turn, may exchange this information with foreign authorities, including tax authorities.
The RIA anticipates disclosing Investor Data to parties who provide services to Investment Vehicles advised by the RIA and their respective affiliates (which may include certain entities located outside the Cayman Islands or the European Economic Area), who will process your personal data on our behalf. Such parties may include, to the extent applicable:
- An Investment Vehicle’s administrator, trustee and/or custodians, as set forth in the Investment Vehicle’s offering documents;

The RIA may also need to transfer your personal data to a country that may not afford the same level of privacy protection as the Cayman Islands (“third countries”). You understand that the data protection legislation in these third countries may not give you as much protection as the DPA. For transfers to third countries, the RIA will transfer the personal data in accordance with the DPA such as relying on a derogation applicable to the specific situation or by implementing data transfer contractual provisions meeting the standard imposed under the DPA in an effort to ensure the protection of your personal data. Reasons for having to possibly transfer your data outside the Cayman Island may include – a need to carry out the RIA’s contract with you, the RIA having to fulfill a legal and/or compliance obligation; the RIA needing to protect the public interest; and/or for your or our legitimate interests.
