We only obtain, use and keep personal information where we need it for a specific purpose. We set out below the ways in which we plan to use your personal information. We are only able to use your personal information if we have a proper legal reason or basis for doing so. This is called a legal basis and the regulations require that we have a legal basis so that your privacy is protected. Most commonly we will use your information in the following ways:
We set out in the table below all the ways we plan to use your personal information and the legal bases we rely on to do so. We also explain what our legitimate interests are where appropriate:
|Purpose||Lawful basis for processing, including our legitimate interests|
|To facilitate investment into our funds and co-investment opportunities and comply with our obligations as manager as set out in the constitutional documents of the funds||To fulfil our contract with you|
|To facilitate investment into portfolio companies, and provide advice and assistance to help our portfolio companies grow||To fulfil our investment agreements with management companies|

|To use data to improve our website||Necessary for our legitimate interests – to understand how our customers interact with our website|
We will only use your personal information for the reason for which we collected it. We will only use it for another reason if we believe that new reason is compatible with the original purpose. If we do need to use your personal information for a non-related purpose we will tell you about it and explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.
We can use your personal information to send you communications if we believe we have a ‘legitimate interest’. We are required to make an assessment with regards to the benefits for us weighed against how appropriate it is to contact you in this way and whether it would be unfair to you. We believe that as a commercial enterprise we do have a legitimate interest in contacting you about our products or services and we will only do so if we decide it would be of interest or beneficial for you.
You may opt-out of receiving any marketing information from us in any form by contacting the Compliance Officer.
We will get your express opt-in consent before we share your personal data with any other company for marketing purposes.
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer (or other device where you access the internet) used to collect information on your activities online. They can also be used as part of website functionality. We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about webpage traffic and improve our website by tailoring it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.
If you have concerns about cookies, this website explains how you can delete and control the cookies that are stored on your computer: https://www.aboutcookies.org/
We will only share your Personal Data with third parties in the ways set out in this privacy statement. We do not give, sell or rent your Personal Data to third parties for them to market their services to you. Nor do we accept advertising from third parties on our website.
We may provide your Personal Data to our service providers to help us with our business activities, such as inputting your contact information into our CRM or email marketing system. In all cases we will have a processor agreement with these companies safeguarding your Personal Data, including that it may only be processed for the purposes of that agreement and on our instructions. We may also disclose your Personal Data as follows:
The regulations which have been put in place to protect your privacy apply throughout the EEA. The EEA is the European Economic Area which includes all the countries in the European Union plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. This means that any country within the EEA must meet the same privacy standards as the United Kingdom. All the personal information that we hold about you will be processed in the EEA.
As a financial services provider we will typically have a contract with you and will need to keep your personal information (updated to ensure accuracy) to fulfil our contract. We also need to comply with the legal requirements of multiple jurisdictions, including the EU and UK, which often requires us to keep certain records – which will include certain personal information – for several years.
Our policy is to keep records on prospective investors, management teams and other business contacts indefinitely; we may wish to contact long-standing contacts about a particularly relevant opportunity in the future, and in the context of our business there is no way to predict when such an opportunity might arise. We will ensure all records are safely destroyed if we no longer need to retain them. We review our retention periods for personal information on a regular basis.
You are provided with a number of different rights under the data protection laws in relation to your personal information. These allow you to:
If you wish to exercise any of these rights please contact the Compliance Officer. Please note that you will not have to pay a fee to access your personal information or to exercise any of the other rights. We may, however, charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive or we may refuse to deal with your request. We may also need to seek further information from you to confirm your identity before we release any personal information. This does not affect your right to make a complaint.
We have put in place appropriate security measures to protect your personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We have a procedure to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you, and other regulators, where we are legally required to do so.
