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:

How We May Share Personal Data
As applicable, depending on the purpose for which the information was obtained, we may disclose information about you to our affiliates, service providers (including the Administrator, the Sub-Administrator of the Funds), or other third parties to process our transactions with you, accept your subscription, administer and maintain your account(s), or otherwise perform our contractual obligations.
