Optima Privacy Policy

Privacy is fundamental to our relationship with our investors and clients.

This Privacy Policy describes what information Optima collects as part of your interaction with the Optima Fund Management website (the “Website”) and/or Optima’s virtual safe and electronic service that permits Optima’s customers to access certain account information via the internet through the use of personal computers or similar access devices accessible through the Website (the “Service”), and how we use, share and protect that information. Please note that this Privacy Policy may change from time to time. Please check the Privacy Policy each time you visit the Website or use the Service for the most current version. This Privacy Policy concerns only the Website and the Service, and does not concern any other website or internet-based services, including websites to which this site may link. We have no control over such third-party sites or their privacy policies or terms of use, and therefore we encourage you to review such privacy policies and terms of use prior to submitting any personal information to them.

Collection and Use of Personally Identifiable Information

When you browse this Website we do not collect personal information about you unless you affirmatively provide it to us. When you voluntarily submit your personal information to us, such as when you register to use the Service, you are giving us your consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

If you choose to register for access to the Service, you will be required to provide certain personally identifiable information such as your name, email address, postal address, and telephone number. Once activated, such information will be connected with your account, together with information regarding your transactions with us (such as investments, withdrawals, performance and account balances) from our discussions with you and from documents that you may deliver to us. We are committed to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and security of your personal information. Internal policies have been developed to protect this confidentiality, while allowing us to serve your needs as an investor or client. We do not disclose nonpublic personal information about our investors, clients or former investors or former clients to third parties other than as described below.

Personal information collected about you will be used solely to provide you the Service and any other services provided to you by Optima, and for use in Optima’s business operations. We may collect certain information regarding your use of the Website, including your IP address, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, sections of the Website visited, and activity and usage information occurring via the Website. We reserve the right to use such information to better understand the behavior and preferences of uses of the Service and Website, to troubleshoot technical problems, to enforce this Privacy Policy and to ensure proper functioning of and to help improve the Service and Website.

In order to provide you with the Service, we may provide your personal information to our affiliates and to firms that assist us in servicing your account and that have a need for such information, such as a broker, custodian, lawyer, accountant or other service provider and as permitted by law. We require third party service providers and financial institutions with whom we have relationships to protect the confidentiality of your information and to use the information only for the purposes for which we disclose the information to them. We reserve the right to disclose any information or electronic communications as necessary to comply with any law, regulation or government request.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to protect the nonpublic personal information we obtain about you. However, you acknowledge and agree that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and your information may still be accessed and used by others without authorization in the event of a security breach.

In the event that you have any questions or concerns about this Agreement or Privacy Policy, or would like to update your contact information, please contact us at 212-484-3000.
