Your privacy is very important to us. This notice (this “Privacy Notice”) is provided by SECOR Asset Management, LP and its affiliates (collectively, the “Investment Manager”) and, where relevant, the funds and investment vehicles advised by the Investment Manager (each, the “Fund” and, together with the Investment Manager, “we” or “us”), and sets forth our policies for the collection, use, storage, sharing, disclosure (collectively, “processing”) and protection of personal data relating to current, prospective and former investors in the Fund, as applicable.
References to “you” or an “investor” in this Privacy Notice mean any investor who is an individual, or any individual connected with an investor who is a legal person, as applicable.
This Privacy Notice is being provided in accordance with the applicable requirements under the privacy and data protection laws that apply in the jurisdictions where we operate (collectively, the “Data Protection Laws”). Each Fund and the Investment Manager are considered to be data controllers in respect of any personal information we hold about you for the purposes of certain Data Protection Laws. This means that the Fund and the Investment Manager (alone or jointly, as applicable) determine the purposes and the means of the processing of your personal information.
Please contact our Chief Compliance Officer at email@example.com with any questions about this Privacy Notice or requests with regards to the personal data we hold.
Please note that the administrator, the prime brokers, the custodians and other service providers to the Fund work under a range of professional and legal obligations that require them to process personal data (e.g., anti-money laundering legislation). In order to meet the requirements of such obligations, they, from time to time, would not be acting on our instructions but instead in accordance with their own respective professional or legal obligations and therefore as data controllers in their own right with respect to such processing. For more specific information or requests in relation to the processing of personal data by the administrator, the prime brokers, the custodians and other service providers to the Fund, you may also contact the relevant service provider directly by visiting their websites.
The categories of personal data we may collect include names, residential or business addresses, or other contact details, signature, nationality, tax identification or passport number, date of birth, place of birth, photographs, copies of identification documents, bank account details, information about assets or net worth, credit history, information on investment activities, or other personal information, such as certain special categories of personal data (including, where relevant, information on political affiliations, ethnic origin, or criminal convictions), as specified under the applicable Data Protection Laws, that may be contained in the relevant materials, documents, or obtained through background searches.
We may collect personal data about you through: (i) information provided directly to us by you, or another person on your behalf; (ii) information that we obtain in relation to any transactions between you and us; and (iii) recording and monitoring of telephone conversations with you.
We also may receive your personal information from third parties or other sources, such as our affiliates, the administrator, the prime brokers, the custodians and other service providers to the Fund, publicly accessible databases or registers, tax authorities, governmental agencies and supervisory authorities, credit agencies, fraud prevention and detection agencies, or other publicly accessible sources, such as the Internet.
We may process your personal data for the purposes of administering the relationship between you and us (including subscription acceptance, communications and reporting), marketing of our products and services, monitoring and analyzing our activities, and complying with applicable legal or regulatory requirements (including anti-money laundering, fraud prevention, tax reporting, sanctions compliance, or responding to requests for information from supervisory authorities, or law enforcement agencies).
We will use one of the permitted grounds under the applicable Data Protection Laws to process your personal information. Such grounds include, for example, circumstances where:
Where personal data is required to satisfy a statutory obligation (including compliance with applicable anti-money laundering or sanctions requirements) or a contractual requirement, failure to provide such information may result in your subscription in the applicable Fund being rejected or your shares or interests becoming subject to compulsory redemption or withdrawal, as applicable. Where there is suspicion of unlawful activity, failure to provide personal data may result in the submission of a report to the relevant law enforcement agency or supervisory authority.
We may disclose information about you to our affiliates, service providers (including the administrator), or other third parties to accept your subscription, administer and maintain your account(s), or otherwise perform our contractual obligations. We may also need to share your personal information with regulatory, tax or law enforcement authorities to comply with applicable legal or regulatory requirements, respond to court orders, or in the context of regulatory requests for information, administrative proceedings, or investigations. We will also release information about you if you direct us to do so.
It may also be necessary, under anti-money laundering and similar laws, to disclose information about you to facilitate the establishment of trading relationships for the Fund with the prime brokers, the custodians or other trading counterparties.
We may also disclose information about you, or your transactions and experiences with us, to our affiliates or service providers for our everyday business purposes, such as administration of our business, record-keeping, maintaining security of our information technology systems, reporting and monitoring of our activities, investor relations activities, and compliance with applicable legal and regulatory requirements.
We will not retain personal data for longer than is necessary in relation to the purpose for which it is collected, subject to the applicable Data Protection Laws. Personal data will be retained for the duration of your investment in the Fund and for a minimum of five years after a redemption or withdrawal, as applicable, of your investment, or liquidation of the Fund. We may retain personal data for a longer period for the purpose of marketing our products and services or compliance with applicable law. From time to time, we will review the purpose for which personal data has been collected and decide whether to retain it or to delete if it no longer serves any purpose to us.
To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we apply organizational and technical security measures in accordance with applicable Data Protection Laws. These measures include computer safeguards and secured files and buildings.
We will notify you of any material personal data breaches affecting you in accordance with the requirements of applicable Data Protection Laws.
For purposes of U.S. federal law, this Privacy Notice applies to current and former investors who are individuals or Individual Retirement Accounts. We are providing this additional information under U.S. federal law.
We may disclose information about our investors, prospective investors or former investors to affiliates (i.e., financial and non-financial companies related by common ownership or control) or non-affiliates (i.e., financial or non-financial companies not related by common ownership or control) for our everyday business purposes, such as to process your transactions, maintain your account(s) or respond to court orders and legal investigations. Thus, it may be necessary or appropriate, under anti-money laundering and similar laws, to disclose information about the Fund’s investors in order to accept subscriptions from them. We will also release information about you if you direct us to do so.
We may share your information with our affiliates for direct marketing purposes, such as offers of products and services to you by us or our affiliates. You may prevent this type of sharing by contacting us at +1 (212) 980-7350. If you are a new investor, we can begin sharing your information with our affiliates for direct marketing purposes 30 days from the date we sent this Privacy Notice. When you are no longer our investor, we may continue to share your information with our affiliates for such purposes.
You may contact us at any time to limit our sharing of your personal information. If you limit sharing for an account you hold jointly with someone else, your choices will apply to everyone on your account. U.S. state laws may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
We do not share your information with non-affiliates for them to market their own services to you. We may disclose information you provide to us to companies that perform marketing services on our behalf, such as any placement agent retained by the Fund.
This section applies to any Fund that is domiciled in the Cayman Islands. The Fund may share your personal information with its service providers, including the Investment Manager the administrator, the prime brokers, the custodians, or others who are located outside the Cayman Islands. It may also be necessary to share your information with the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority or the Tax Information Authority, which may, in turn, exchange this information with foreign tax authorities, regulatory or law enforcement agencies. Any transfer of your personal data by us, our affiliates or service providers outside the Cayman Islands will be carried out in accordance with the DPL.
You may have certain rights under the DPL, including: (i) the right to be informed; (ii) the right of access; (iii) the right to rectification; (iv) the right to stop or restrict processing; (v) the right to stop direct marketing; (vi) rights in relation to automated decision making; (vii) the right to seek compensation; and (viii) the right to complain to the supervisory authority. A complaint in respect of Fund may be lodged with the Office of the Ombudsman in the Cayman Islands. Please use the contact details under Who to Contact About This Privacy Notice if you wish to exercise these rights.
You may have certain rights under EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) in relation to our processing of your personal data and any processing carried out on your behalf. These rights include: (i) the right to request access to your personal data; (ii) the right to request rectification of your personal data; (iii) the right to request erasure of your personal data (the “right to be forgotten”); (iv) the right to restrict our processing or use of your personal data;
(v) the right to object to our processing or use where we have considered this to be necessary for our legitimate interests (such as in the case of our marketing activities); (vi) where relevant, the right to request the portability of the data; (vii) if your consent to processing has been obtained, the right to withdraw your consent at any time; and (viii) the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in your jurisdiction. Please note that the right to be forgotten that applies in certain circumstances under GDPR is not likely to be available in respect of the personal data we hold, given the purpose for which we collect such data, as described above.
Due to the international nature of our business, your personal data will be processed in, or may be transferred to, jurisdictions that do not offer equivalent protection to personal data as under the GDPR (“Third Countries”). Where required under GDPR, we will ensure that your personal data is processed in such Third Countries in accordance with the requirements of GDPR, which may include having appropriate contractual undertakings in legal agreements with service providers who process personal data on our behalf. We may also be required to transfer your personal information to our regulators or government agencies in Third Countries in cases where such transfers are necessary in the context of administrative proceedings, such as requests for information, examinations or investigations, or to other relevant parties in Third Countries where it is necessary for the purposes of establishing, bringing, or defending legal claims, or for another legitimate business purpose, such as compliance with our legal or regulatory obligations under foreign law.
