As part of our business, we may obtain personal information about you, including, without limitation, your name, date of birth, address and other contact details, tax or other identification number. This information may come from a variety of sources such as material completed or supplied by you. We may also collect special categories of personal data (as defined in the UK GDPR, including health, disability and religious or ethnicity information) where provided by you with your consent.
We collect your personal information to fulfil our contractual obligations, to fulfil our statutory obligations or the legitimate interests of Ancala or for any other purpose for which Ancala has a lawful basis including (i) for compliance with legal and regulatory requirements (such as anti-money laundering or terrorist financing regulations or Know your Customer requirements) (ii) for our investment activities, including investment due diligence, investment monitoring or reporting on investments (iii) in connection with investigations, regulatory or governmental enquiries or for other legal or regulatory purposes and (iv) for other legitimate business interests.
We will not share personal data collected from you with third parties for purposes other than those in support of Ancala’s operations and for the purpose for which you provided it.
In some instances, Ancala may share the personal data with any affiliates, clients, or with third-party service providers (for example, legal advisers, auditors, administrators, custodians etc.) retained by Ancala to provide services on its behalf. In addition, we may process your personal information in order to communicate with you for marketing purposes, with your consent. You have the right to unsubscribe.

In this respect, third parties will act as a data controller within the meaning of the UK GDPR.

Ancala reserves the right to monitor and disclose, without your consent, any communications or personal data, when requested to do so by courts, government agencies, regulators or by law enforcement agencies.

Whilst Ancala endeavours to protect personal data, it does not warrant the security of it, and ultimately you provide your personal data to us at your own risk.
