The Funds and the Adviser (collectively referred to as "we") consider customer privacy to be fundamental to our relationship with our customers. In the course of operating and acting as trading advisor to the private investment fund in which you have invested (the “Fund”) or acting as trading advisor over your individual account (the “Account”), we collect personal information about you (“nonpublic personal information”). We collect this information to know who you are and to meet our obligations under the laws and regulations that govern us.
Information We Collect
We collect nonpublic personal information about you from three sources:
- Information on subscription agreements or other forms. This category may include your name, address, tax identification number, age, marital status, number of dependents, assets, debts, income, employment history, beneficiary information and personal bank account information;
- Information from your transactions with us, such as your investment history in the Fund and/or the Account and your account balance; and
- Information obtained from others, such as our affiliates and consumer credit reporting agencies.
Information We Disclose
We will not disclose any non-public personal information about you except to our affiliates such as our affiliated pooled investment vehicles, investment sub-advisers and general partners, and to nonaffiliated third parties for our everyday business purposes, such as to process your transactions, maintain your account(s) and respond to court orders, regulatory examinations and legal investigations. Nonaffiliated third parties we share with can include our accountants, attorneys and auditors.
We may also disclose your nonpublic personal information to our affiliates for marketing purposes, such as to offer our products and services to you.
Protecting Your Information
To protect this information, we permit access only by authorized employees who need access to that information in order to perform their jobs. To protect your nonpublic personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with U.S. federal and international law. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.
We treat information concerning our former customers the same way we treat information about our current customers.
