It is important that you read this Privacy Notice, together with any other privacy notice we may provide on specific occasions when we are collecting or processing your Personal Data, so that you are aware of how and why we are using such information.

We reserve the right to update this Privacy Notice at any time. We may also notify you in other ways from time to time about the processing of your Personal Data.

Applicability

This Privacy Notice applies to the processing of Personal Data of identified or identifiable natural persons (“Data Subjects”) who are residents of a member state of the European Union (“EU”) or the European Economic Area (“EEA”).

This Privacy Notice describes how we collect and use personal information about you during and after your relationship with us, in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation) (the “GDPR”), as well as any law or regulation relating to the protection of Personal Data applicable to them, as any of such instruments may be modified or complemented from time to time (together, the “Data Protection Legislation”).

We are required under the Data Protection Legislation to notify you of the information contained in this Privacy Notice. If the Data Protection Legislation applies to you, you have certain rights with respect to your Personal Data, as outlined in greater detail below. It applies to:

We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the relevant data protection authority, so please contact us in the first instance.

With Whom We Share Personal Data

 

RCP does not sell any of your Personal Data, including your name, mailing address or email address to any companies.

 

In the course of providing investment products and services to you, we collect non-public personal information about you from sources such as subscription agreements or advisory services agreements and related documents as well as from transactions related to your account. In the normal course of serving our investors and clients, the information we collect may be shared with companies that perform various services such as custodians, accountants, attorneys, broker-dealers and financial institutions as well as with governmental agencies. Specifically, we may disclose to these service providers all non-public information we collect, including:

 

  • Information we receive on subscription agreements or other forms, such as an investor’s or client’s name, address, telephone number, social security or tax identification number, amount of investment(s), and bank account information; and

  • Information about transactions with us, such as an investor’s or client’s capital account balance and other account data.

 

Finally, as required or permitted by the Funds’ respective partnership agreements, we may distribute to the investors in a Fund certain non-public personal information of the investors, such as commitment amounts and addresses, which may be recorded in schedules attached to such Fund’s partnership agreement.

 

Any service provider or organization receiving your personal information will be authorized to use such information only to perform the services required and as permitted by applicable law. Access to investors’ and clients’ non-public personal information is restricted to those employees and managers of RCP who require access to provide services to the Funds and their investors and to the firm’s clients. RCP maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect non-public personal information. Investors’ and clients’ right to privacy extends to all forms of contact with RCP, including telephone, written correspondence and electronic media, such as the Internet.

 

Before RCP may disclose non-public personal information about any of its clients or the Fund’s investors to a non-affiliated third party other than a service provider and other than pursuant to one of the exceptions under Regulation S-P, RCP must provide each client and investor an initial privacy policy notice and an opt-out notice. The opt-out notice would describe the RCP’s planned disclosures and give clients and investors a reasonable opportunity to decline permission to make those disclosures. Because RCP does not disclose non-public personal information to non-affiliated third parties, other than service providers or pursuant to the exceptions, RCP is not required to provide opt out notices.

 

Retention of Data

 

RCP will keep your Personal Data only for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which Personal Data is collected as stated herein; for as long as is necessary for the performance of the contract between you and RCP, if any; and to comply with legal and statutory obligations, such as in tax, trade and corporate laws. When RCP no longer needs your Personal Data for our purposes, RCP will destroy, delete or erase that Personal Data or convert it into an anonymous form.

 

Security of Data

 

RCP will take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Data in our possession from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For example, RCP uses security measures including safeguarding and monitoring our network and controlling access to our files, equipment, and buildings.

 

California Privacy Rights

 

If you are a resident of the state of California, the following rights are available to you under the California Consumer Privacy Act.

 

Right to access

 

You have the right to request that RCP disclose the categories of Personal Data collected, the categories of sources from which Personal Data is collected, the business or commercial purpose for collection, the categories of third parties with which RCP shares Personal Data, and the specific pieces of Personal Data that RCP has about you.  You also have the right to request that RCP provide your Personal Data to you in a readily useable format.

 

Right to request deletion

 

You have the right to request that RCP delete Personal Data that RCP collected from you.  Note, however, that certain requests to delete Personal Data may be denied if RCP is required to retain the information as a matter of law, the information is necessary for detecting security incidents, exercising free speech, protecting or defending against legal claims, or for internal uses reasonably aligned with consumer expectations.

 

Right to non-discrimination

 

You have the right not to receive discriminatory treatment by RCP for exercise of these privacy rights.  RCP does not offer financial incentives related to the provision of data.

 

Authorized agent

 

You have the right to designate an authorized agent to make these requests on your behalf.

 

Exercising your rights

 

To exercise any of these rights, please call our toll-free number at 866-758-1231 or contact us via email at dataprotection@rcp.com.  RCP may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access the information (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is another appropriate security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

 

Updates to this Privacy Notice

 

RCP reserves the right to change our privacy policies and this Privacy Statement at any time. This notice is intended to comply with the privacy provisions of applicable U.S. federal law as well as the California Consumer Protection Act. You may have additional rights under other foreign or domestic laws that may apply to you.
