This Privacy Notice does not address Aquatic’s privacy practices with respect to any Personal Data Aquatic may collect from an investor in the funds that Aquatic sponsors or manages. Aquatic addresses these practices in separate notices to investors as required by law.
“Personal Data” is any information relating to you or that Aquatic can otherwise link to you or your household.
The Personal Data Aquatic collects on this website may include your name, email address, residential address, IP address, telephone number and other contact information. Some of this information Aquatic will only have access to if you provide it to us.

Aquatic may combine personal information that you provide to us with information that Aquatic collects from or about you from publicly available sources. This will include information collected in an online or offline context.
In addition to Personal Data collected from your use of the Aquatic website, Aquatic may also collect Personal Data regarding Aquatic business contacts, partners, current and prospective investors, vendors and other contacts.

Aquatic uses the Personal Data it collects for communication purposes, such as, but not limited to (i) sending you information about Aquatic and/or its investment funds and (ii) maintaining an Aquatic list of contacts. Aquatic uses the Personal Data Aquatic collects from you through other means for business purposes, such as, but not limited to (i) communicating with service providers and vendors, (ii) researching investment opportunities and (iii) managing Aquatic investments.

You are not required to submit information to us through this website. However, Aquatic may collect “cookies,” which may be automatically collected and will not necessarily require your consent.

With whom does Aquatic share your Personal Data?
Aquatic will not share your Personal Data with third parties except as permitted or required by law or regulation and to affiliates and service providers, including in the context of those third parties acting as data processors on Aquatic’s behalf and with whom Aquatic has a need to share such information. For example, Aquatic may use a customer relationship manager software platform to organize Aquatic’s business contacts, and your Personal Data may reside on that software. Where relevant, Aquatic will ensure that contractual safeguards are implemented with these third- party data processors to ensure the protection of your Personal Data.
Aquatic does not sell or transfer Personal Data to affiliates or third parties for value and does not intend to do so in the future. Aquatic will amend this Privacy Notice promptly upon any changes to this policy.
Your Personal Data will be retained for as long as you are one of Aquatic’s business contacts, or longer as required by applicable law. Your Personal Data may be deleted when it is no longer relevant or when you withdraw consent (pursuant to the rights detailed directly below which may be exercised by using the contact information contained at the end of this Privacy Notice), again within the parameters of applicable law. If Aquatic sends you emails and/or markets to you, you may unsubscribe at any time from communications from us, and Aquatic will cease sending you further communications.
Your rights described in this Privacy Notice are applicable only if you reside in a jurisdiction where the provision of such rights is required by the data protection and privacy laws of the governing regulatory authority, as outlined further below. These rights may be limited and subject to further legal requirements.
