We allow our affiliates and third-parties to collect certain personal information when you visit our Website.

We have also engaged third-party companies to process information about our users on our behalf, to help us improve our Website and find prospective investors. These companies will combine our data about how you visit our Website with information that they have collected from outside our Website and provide it to us (and only us) so that we can optimize your experience on 1623capital.com across devices and based on your interests.

While not associated with the use of the Website, 1623 Capital has contracted third-party firms, such as Verify Investor, to manage the investor qualification process. These third-party service providers will verify a prospective investor’s accredited status by either requesting and reviewing the relevant forms (credit check, tax returns, etc.) or by having an attorney, accountant, or financial advisor submit a letter certifying the accredited investor status. This investor information will not be shared with 1623 Capital LLC or any other party, except for the determination of eligibility for investment in products offered by 1623 Capital.

In addition, 1623 Capital has contracted with a third-party firm, SS&C Technologies, to provide fund administration services, which includes generating the financial statements for each investor.

European and Cayman Islands Investors Privacy Statement


A. Purpose

1623 Capital LLC (the “Manager”)1 is sensitive to privacy issues, and it is important to us to protect the information you provide. Accordingly, the Manager provides this privacy and information practices policy ("Privacy Statement") to inform you about the kinds of information we may collect, how we intend to use and share that information, and how you can correct or change such information.

B. Scope

This Privacy Statement describes the ways the Manager manages Personal Information2 it receives in the course of its operations involving current, prospective and former investors, (collectively, "Investors"). All individuals who process Personal Information on behalf of the manager are expected to protect such data by adherence to this Privacy Statement.

The Manager complies with the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 ("GDPR"), the legislation implementing GDPR in EU member states and the Data Protection Act, 2017 of the Cayman Islands ("DPA"). The Manager adheres to the GDPR and the DPA Principles of Lawfulness, Fairness and Transparency; Purpose Limitation; Data Minimization; Accuracy of Information; Storage Limitation; Integrity and Confidentiality; and Accountability as set forth in this Privacy Statement.


A. What personal information we collect and how we use it

The types of Personal Information we may collect depends on the nature of the relationship you have with the Manager and the requirements of applicable law. We do not engage in automated decision making when processing your Personal Information. Below are the legal bases for processing your Personal Information, some of the ways we collect information, and how we use it.

B. Investors

Information the Manager collects from or on behalf of its Investors includes title, name, address, phone number, email address, business or Manager affiliation, government identification (driver’s license, passport), financial information related to payments, agreements executed with the Manager and other details Investors may provide. In certain Investor engagements, we may collect employee and other information about our Investors, as well as employee or other Personal Information of others who have a relationship or otherwise interact with our Investors.

We process Personal Information about or on behalf of Investors for a variety of business purposes, including to:

  • verify Investor identity for the purpose of preventing fraud or other financial crime and carry out anti-money laundering and sanctions checks;
  • ensure compliance with the Common Reporting Standard (“CRS"), FATCA, Automatic Exchange of Information ("AEOI"), Market Abuse Regulations ("MAR"), anti-money laundering regulations and other relevant laws, regulations and standards as may be updated and amended from time to time;
  • process payment information;
  • provide investment services, including the provision of monthly statements;
  • respond to questions and requests;
  • communicate to Investors on matters such as changes to the Manager’s policies; and
  • other purposes associated with your investment in the Fund.

As permitted under the GDPR and the DPA we will only use your Personal Information where we have a legal basis to do so, including where the processing is necessary for:

  • us to comply with the law;
  • the performance of the Subscription Agreement; or
  • the Manager’s legitimate interests or those of a third party. For example, to:
    • provide investment services to manage your investment;
    • respond to questions and requests or otherwise correspond with you in connection with your investment; and
    • keep internal records.

We only rely on these interests where we have considered that, on balance, our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms.

C. Right to Opt Out

You have the right to opt-out of certain uses and disclosures of your Personal Information, as set out in this Privacy Statement. Where you have consented to the Manager’s processing of your Personal Information or sensitive Personal Information, subject to applicable legal obligations, you may withdraw that consent at any time and opt-out. Additionally, before we use Personal Information for any new purpose not originally authorized by you, we will provide information regarding the new purpose and give you the opportunity to opt-in to such secondary uses. If you choose not to opt-in to our secondary use of your Personal Information, we will not process it for that use.

D. Onward Transfer

Information We Share

The Manager does not sell or otherwise disclose Personal Information about you, except as described in this Privacy Statement or as you explicitly consent. The Manager may share Personal Information with:

  • 1623 Pro Fund GP, Ltd., a Cayman Islands exempted limited company and general partner of 1623 Pro Master Fund, LP (the "Master Fund GP") for purposes related to the management of the Manager's assets and liabilities;

  • The Manager’s affiliates for purposes of providing you with, and informing you about, the Manager’s group products and services which may be of interest to you. For more information on how the Manager looks after your Personal Information, please visit the Manager’s Privacy Policy, available here https://www.1623capital.com/privacy-policy/#European _Customers; and
  • Its service providers to provide you with the investment service that you have subscribed for, effectuate the payment of amounts due in respect of the Interests, manage your investment, and support and administer investment related activities. These service providers include, but are not limited to: custodians, administrators, issuing and paying agents, registrars, calculation agents and domiciliation agents.

The Manager requires its service providers to agree in writing to maintain confidentiality and security of Personal Information they maintain on its behalf, including to provide at least the same level of protection as required by the GDPR and the DPA, not to use it for any purpose other than the purpose for which the Manager retained them and to notify the Manager if they make a determination that they can no longer comply with that obligation.

We may disclose information about you: (i) if we are required to do so by law, court order or legal process; or (ii) in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

Transfers of Personal Information outside the European Economic Area and/or the Cayman Islands

Your Personal Information may be transferred to our partners, associates and relevant authorities in the U.S. or the Caymans Islands for the purposes identified. Any such transfer of Personal Information shall take place only in accordance with and as permitted by the GDPR and the DPA. Where the Manager transfers Personal Information outside of the European Economic Area (“EEA") and/or the Cayman islands we have put in place data transfer agreements and safeguards using European Commission approved terms. Please be aware that the laws and practices relating to the protection of Personal Information are likely to be different and in some cases may be weaker than those within the EEA and the Cayman Islands.

E. Individual Rights of Access and Choice

The Manager adheres to applicable data protection laws in the EEA and the Cayman Islands, which, if applicable under the GDPR and the DPA, include the following rights:

  • If the processing of Personal Information is based on your consent, you have a right to withdraw consent at any time for future processing;
  • You have a right to request from us, where we act as a “data controller” as defined in the law, access to and rectification of your Personal Information;
  • The right to have incomplete or inaccurate Personal Information corrected;
  • In some limited circumstances, the right to receive some personal data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and/or request that the Manager transmit such data to a third party where this is technically feasible;

  • The right to restrict the use of your Personal Information;
  • The right to ask us to stop processing your Personal Information in some limited circumstances; and
  • The right to ask us to delete your Personal Information in some limited circumstances.

Although the Manager makes good faith efforts to provide individuals with access to their Personal Information, there may be circumstances in which the Manager is unable to provide access, including but not limited to: where the information contains legal privilege, would compromise others’ privacy or other legitimate rights, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risks to the individual’s privacy in the case in question or where the information is commercially proprietary. If the Manager determines that access should be restricted in any particular instance, we will endeavor to provide you with an explanation of why that determination has been made and a contact point for any further inquiries. To protect your privacy, the Manager will take commercially reasonable steps to verify your identity before granting access to or making any changes to your Personal Information.

F. Retention

The Manager retains Personal Information that it receives in order to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the information was collected, to provide investment services, conduct audits, enforce Manager agreements and comply with all applicable laws and in accordance with our routine information storage policies. At the point at which the Manager ceases to provide you with investment services, the Manager will retain your Personal Information that it has received for a maximum of 15 years, unless there is ongoing litigation or a similar reason that requires us to retain the Personal Information.

G. Security

The security of all Personal Information provided to the Manager is important to us, and the Manager takes reasonable steps designed to protect your Personal Information. The Manager maintains administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect Personal Information that is received against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

H. Redress/Compliance and Accountability

The Manager will address your concerns and attempt to resolve any privacy issues in a timely manner, and may contact individuals at the Manager’s service providers to assist in completing your requested task.

Please be aware that you also have a right to approach the body regulating data protection for your country with any concerns you may have. The Cayman Islands Ombudsman may be contacted by email (info@ombudsman.ky), telephone (+1 345 946 6283) or post (PO Box 2252, Grand Cayman KY1-1107, Cayman Islands).

I. Changes to this Privacy Statement

The Manager may update this Privacy Statement from time to time as it deems necessary or appropriate in its sole discretion. If there are any material changes to this Privacy Statement, the Manager will notify you in a practical manner.


 All references to the Manager should be constructed to also include the fund you are invested in, the master partnership of the fund, and any third party or affiliate to whom they may delegate certain administrative functions in relation to the Manager and/or who support such functions.

2   "Personal Information" is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("Data Subject"); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.


Additional Information for California Residents

This section supplements the information contained in the other sections of this Privacy Policy and applies solely to clients, investors, visitors, users, and others who reside in the state of California (“consumers” or “you”) and for whom we have data that are subject to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 as may be amended or supplemented from time to time (“CCPA”). This Privacy Policy, including this additional information, is provided to comply with the CCPA and other California privacy laws. Any terms defined in the CCPA have the same meaning when used in this section.

It is important to note, however, that the CCPA does not apply to all entities, nor does it apply to personal information maintained by financial services firms that are covered under certain exemptions described in the CCPA, and as such, the CCPA may not apply to personal information we maintain about you.
For the 12-month period prior to the date of this Privacy Policy, we have not “sold” (as that term is defined under the CCPA) any of your information.

Depending upon how you interact with us, you may have various rights in connection with our processing of your Personal Information, each of which is explained below.

  • Access. You may have the right to confirm with us whether your Personal Information is processed and, if it is, to request access to that Personal Information, including the categories of Personal Information processed, the purpose of the processing, and the recipients or categories of recipients. We do have to consider the interests of others though, so this is not an absolute right and there are additional exceptions under the CCPA. Also, we are not obligated to respond to more than two access requests for the same individual’s Personal Information within a 12-month period.
  • Deletion. You may have the right to ask us to erase Personal Information concerning you, except we are not obligated to do so if we need to retain such data in order to comply with a legal obligation or to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims or under other exceptions under the CCPA.

If your request is for data relating to you that is de-identified or aggregated so that it is no longer Personal Information, we are not required to re-identify the data to respond to your request. You have a right to receive nondiscriminatory treatment for the exercise of the privacy rights conferred by the CCPA.

Making your own privacy rights request: To exercise one or more of these rights, please contact us as explained below. Please note that we may need to verify your identity before we can fulfill your request. Verification can involve matching up to three pieces of your personal data (as provided on your request) with our internal records. You can submit your request via email at dpo@1623capital.com, or via telephone at 703-832-8232.

Authorized agent requests: An access and/or deletion request also may be made by someone else you authorize specifically to make such a request under the CCPA or by someone you have named as your agent under a power of attorney that is valid under the California Probate Code.

Handling requests we receive: If we need additional information to verify your identity, we will let you know. We will endeavor to respond to a verified request within 45 days, unless there are grounds for extending our response timeframe by up to an additional 45 days. In the event of an extension, we will explain to you why the extension is necessary. In some cases, your ability to access or delete your Personal Information will be limited, as required or permitted by applicable law, even when the CCPA applies to the Personal Information we have for you. If we cannot fulfill your request because we cannot verify your identity or due to exceptions under the CCPA (or when the CCPA does not apply to the Personal Information), we'll let you know in our response.


Additional Information for Canada Residents

Depending on the province you reside in, you may have various rights in connection with 1623’s processing of your Personal Information under the privacy and data protection legislation applicable in that province (“Canadian Privacy Law”). Any such rights may include the right to access and request the correction of your Personal Information, to have us investigate our management of your Personal Information, to ask the applicable privacy regulator to review our management of your Personal Information, and to withdraw your consent to our use of your Personal Information. Note that in general under Canadian Privacy Law, Personal Information does not include business contact or work product or other information about you in your professional capacity.
