Lawful grounds for processing
We may only collect, process and share personal data fairly and lawfully and for specified purposes (lawful grounds). The Data Protection Law restricts our actions regarding personal data to specified lawful purposes. These restrictions are not intended to prevent processing, but to ensure that we process personal data fairly and without damaging your interests. The lawful grounds for processing available under the Data Protection law vary depending on the nature and purpose of processing activities and the types of data being processed.
We will rely on one or more of the following lawful grounds when processing personal data:
Where you have given consent to the processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes;
Where Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract;
Where Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the we are subject;
Where Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests by us or by a third party, such as direct marketing of our products or services, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data.
We will in some circumstances rely on consent for particular uses of your data and you will be asked for your express consent, if legally required.
Personal data can only be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes. It must not be processed further in any manner incompatible with those purposes. We cannot use personal data for new, different or incompatible purposes from that disclosed when it was first obtained unless we have informed you of the new purpose and you have provided your consent where necessary
For What Purposes Do We Collect, Use and Disclose Your Personal Information?
Millennium collects and processes Personal Information primarily to:
provide investment management services;
communicate information about its products and services;
process subscriptions in its private investment vehicles;
respond to your communications, enquiries and requests;
meet legal, regulatory, audit, security and financial requirements;
maintain business records in accordance with applicable laws on recordkeeping;
to notify you about changes to our service, our address, regulatory requirements, and any other obligations towards you;

Millennium as controller of the personal information collected permits only authorised individuals, who have been advised as to the proper handling of Personal Information, and who need to access this information to perform services, to have access to this information. These authorised individuals are required to maintain and protect the confidentiality of Personal Information.

We may contact you to send you updates (be email, telephone, text, social media or post) about the business or our products and services that might be of interest to you. Where consent is needed we will ask for this consent separately and clearly.
We will always ensure that your personal data is treated with respect and we will never sell or share it with other organisations for marketing purposes.
We may ask you to confirm or update your marketing preferences over time, such as when you instruct us to provide further services in the future, or if there are changes in the law, regulation, or the structure of our business. You can change your preferences for marketing at any time.

Please see the section about your rights for more details.
Sharing your Personal Information
There are a few circumstances in which we may provide your Personal Information to third parties.
In order to service your account and process transactions for your account, Millennium may provide Personal Information to its affiliates and to non-affiliated third party financial service providers that assist Millennium in servicing your account and have a need for such information, such as a broker-dealer or administrator. In addition, Millennium may share Personal Information with non-affiliated third party non-financial service providers, in order to process or service client transactions, products or reporting. Unaffiliated third parties in this instance may include service providers such as word processors and printers. Any such contract entered into by Millennium will include provisions designed to ensure as far as possible that the third party will uphold applicable data protection laws when handling Personal Information. Millennium may also disclose Personal Information to regulatory authorities as required or permitted by applicable law.
In the event that we are involved in the sale or transfer of some or all of our businesses, as part of that sale or transfer transaction, we may disclose your Personal Information to the acquiring organisation, but we will require the acquiring organisation to agree to protect the privacy of your Personal Information in a manner that is consistent with this Policy.
Millennium does not otherwise provide information about you to outside firms, organisations or individuals except at your request or to our lawyers, advisors, accountants and auditors and as permitted by law.
Transfer of personal data to non-EEA countries
Your personal information may be processed and stored outside of your jurisdiction or at a jurisdiction outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Such processing may be carried out by background checking agencies, for purposes of conducting due diligence, employment screening and background checking, or by staff working for counterparty banks and prime brokers with whom we may transact on your behalf.
Where we transfer personal data to third parties outside of the EEA (“third-countries”), we will seek to ensure that it is protected and transferred in a manner consistent with any legal requirements applicable to the information. This can be done in a number of different ways, for instance the third country to which we send the personal information may be subject to an “equivalency decision” by the European Commission, or the recipient in a third country may have signed a contract based on “model contractual clauses” approved by the European Commission, obliging them to protect your personal information in accordance with the Data Protection Law applicable in the EU.
The Data Protection Law may also permit us to transfer personal information to third countries in other circumstances, such as where the data subject has provided explicit consent to such transfer.
Security and Retention of Personal Information
We implement security safeguards to protect Personal Information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorised access, disclosure, copying, use or modification, regardless of the format in which the information is held. We use physical, electronic, procedural, organisational and technological measures to protect Personal Information, such as locked filing cabinets, firewalls, encryption, and employee education.
We will keep Personal Information only for as long as it remains necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, or as required by law or regulation. We use secure means of disposing of Personal Information.

Our Website may contain links that take you to other third party websites. These third party websites are not governed by this Policy but by their own privacy policies which may differ from ours. This Policy does not extend to the collection of Personal Information by these third parties and Millennium does not assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of third parties. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each website visited before using these websites or disclosing any Personal Information to third parties.
