2.  Notice:
We will give investors and clients notice of our privacy policy annually, and we will provide prompt notice if we make material changes. In addition to providing this Statement, we distribute a written Privacy Policy to investors and clients when they open an account with us and at least annually thereafter. We reserve the right to change this Statement and our Privacy Policy at any time. If we make material changes to this Statement or to the Privacy Policy, including material changes or additions to the purposes for which we collect, use, disclose or retain Personal Information, we will post the changes or additions here. We also will tell investors and clients promptly and, if required, seek their consent.

3.  Choice:
We will give investors and clients certain choices regarding our collection, use and disclosure of their Personal Information. We will use Personal Information only as provided in this Statement and our Privacy Policy and only in accordance with the choices our investors and clients have made. We describe below in Section 4 (Limits on Collection, Use and Disclosure) how we may collect, use and disclose Personal Information. Investors and clients can choose, at any time, to opt out of receiving the communications described under the heading “Other Communications” in Section 4. In addition, if we are required to seek their consent, investors and clients can choose to opt out of material changes or additions that we propose to make to the purposes for which we collect, use, disclose or retain their Personal Information. Investors and clients can let us know by printing out, completing and returning the attached Reply Form or by using any one of the other methods listed under How to Reach Us. Investors and clients can change their decision as often as they like.

An investor who holds an interest in an Investment Fund jointly with one or more other persons has the right to make the decisions concerning the use of Personal Information that pertains to himself or herself alone. When investors hold an interest jointly, each acting alone has the right to make decisions concerning the use of the information that pertains to those persons together. If there is a delegation of authority to any one of the joint accountholders, that person, acting alone, may make decisions concerning the use of all Personal Information of all joint accountholders, and any decision by that person will be controlling. A separate form of consent will be needed to set up a delegation of authority.

4.  Limits on Collection, Use and Disclosure:
We limit our collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information to what is necessary to run our business and to deliver superior service.  In General. We will collect, use and disclose Personal Information for the following purposes: (1) to respond to inquiries received through the e-mail facility in our Web Site, (2) to establish and maintain an account, (3) communicate with clients and investors about their account, related matters and other matters, (4) to effect, administer and enforce a transaction involving or related to an account that the client or investor requests or authorizes, (5) to identify the client or investor in order to protect against fraud and guard against unauthorized access to their accounts, (6) to keep our information about clients and investors current and accurate, (7) to determine whether prospective investors are qualified under the securities laws to purchase an interest in the Investment Funds, (8) to facilitate the preparation and filing of tax information and financial statements, (9) to perform necessary credit checks or collect or report debts owed to us, (10) to protect our rights or property, (11) upon reasonable request by the Investment Fund in which an investor has chosen to invest and (12) otherwise to provide quality service to our clients and investors (including processing and storage of their Personal Information in any of our offices world-wide). To do these things we may share Personal Information with service providers, such as accountants, lawyers, trustees, custodians and registered agents, which may be based anywhere in the world. Information will be used only for the purposes for which it is disclosed and will be retained by those service providers, and by us, for as long as may be necessary to fulfill these purposes or for a longer time if required by applicable law. To better service our investors and clients, we may combine information they give to us through various communications channels.

Our Investors and Clients.
We communicate with our investors and clients by mail, overnight service, telephone, fax and e-mail. We use these communications to fulfill our obligations to our investors and clients under our agreements with them.

We do not use Personal Information about investors or clients to conduct market research. We use the names of investors and clients that are institutions in our presentations and as references, but only when we have their permission to do so.

Other Communications.
At times we may send information to investors and clients that does not concern their accounts. If investors and clients do not want to receive these communications from us, they may let us know by printing out, completing and returning the Reply Form or by using any one of the other methods listed under How to Reach Us.
