Using Your Personal Data/Information


9Yards Capital may use personally-identifiable information for its own internal purposes, or on behalf of its affiliates. 9Yards Capital will not transfer, sell or disclose such personal information to any other third party without the applicable persons prior consent, except as may be required by law (such as a subpoena, search warrant or other court order, or pursuant to the order of any regulatory body having jurisdiction over 9Yards Capital, its affiliates or funds managed by 9Yards Capital or its affiliates) or to protect the integrity of the Site. In general, 9Yards Capital's business practices limit access to personal information obtained through use of the Site to those members of its personnel who need to know such information to conduct the operations of 9Yards Capital, its affiliates or funds managed by 9Yards Capital or its affiliates. 


Lawful Purposes and GDPR.  Under the GDPR, we may also collect, store and use your Personal Data where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of us or a third party and such legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms. 


The GDPR states that the use of Personal Data for direct marketing purposes (that is, providing you with information on products and services that may be of interest) may be regarded as being for the purposes of a legitimate interest. Analyzing Personal Data for quality control, business and statistical analysis, tracking fees and costs, training and related purposes are also legitimate interests for us using your Personal Data.


Accordingly, you understand and agree that we may use your Personal Data for such purposes as described in this Privacy Notice, provided that we are acting in a fair, transparent and accountable manner and have taken appropriate steps to prevent such activity having any unwarranted impact on you and also noting your right to object to such use, as discussed in this Privacy Notice.


Given the specific purposes for which we envisage using your Personal Data, under the provisions of the GDPR, we do not anticipate being required to obtain your consent to do so. Should we wish to use your Personal Data for other specific purposes that require your consent, we will contact you to request your consent for such usage.


Transmitting Your Personal Data/Information


By providing 9Yards Capital with data: (i) you acknowledge and agree that due to the international operations of 9Yards Capital and its affiliates, 9Yards Capital may provide personal information and/or Personal Data, in accordance with this Privacy Policy, to 9Yards Capital’s affiliates that may be outside your resident jurisdiction, and that such data may be stored on servers located in other jurisdictions; and (ii) in certain circumstances, we and/or our authorized affiliates and/or delegates may be legally obligated to share your personal information and/or Personal Data with a national regulatory body or authority and they, in turn, may exchange this information with foreign tax authorities including tax authorities, such as the Internal Revenue Service, that are located outside the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). 


Transmission Security, Personal Data Breaches and GDPR. To the extent we or any of our duly authorized affiliates and/or delegates outside the EEA transmit your Personal Data, any such transmission shall be in accordance with the conditions in the GDPR.

We shall notify you of any Personal Data breach affecting you that is likely to result in a high risk to your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms.

·  The right to lodge a complaint with the relevant authorit(ies).

You also have the right to object to the processing of your Personal Data where we have considered this to be necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests.


Data Processing and GDPR.  As we do not process Personal Data on a large scale, we are not required to designate a data protection officer.


Please note that the right for your Personal Data to be erased (the “right to be forgotten”) that applies in some contexts under the GDPR is not likely to be applicable to most, if not all, of the Personal Data you provide to us, given the specific nature of the purposes for which we use the Personal Data.
