DISCLOSURE OF NON-PUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION
Menai does not disclose Non-Public Personal Information to third parties other than as described below.
Menai collects Non-Public Personal Information (such as name, address, social security number, assets and income) from its discussions with Investors, from documents delivered to Menai by Investors, and in the course of providing advisory services. Menai may use this information to provide advisory services or otherwise in furtherance of Menai’s business. To effect investments, Menai may provide Non-Public Personal Information to its affiliates and to firms that assist Menai in servicing Advisory Clients and have a need for such information. Menai may also provide such information to service providers which could include financial institutions with which Menai has joint marketing arrangements, if any. Menai uses reasonable best efforts to require that any person or institution to which it discloses Non-Public Personal Information will protect the confidentiality of that information and use the information only for the purposes for which Menai discloses the information to them. Menai does not otherwise provide Non-Public Personal Information to outside firms, organizations, or individuals except to its Administrators, attorneys, accountants, compliance consultants and auditors and as permitted by law.
Menai restricts access to Non-Public Personal Information to Employees who need to know such information. Menai maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard Non-Public Personal Information.
To generally ensure that Non-Public Personal Information is safeguarded, Menai has adopted the following internal procedures:
(1) access to Non-Public Personal Information is restricted to Employees and service providers that need to access such information to engage in business activities on behalf of Menai;
(2) after business hours, hard-copies of Investors’ Non-Public Personal Information are kept in locked file cabinets or in a locked file room;
(3) Menai computers and blackberries have inactivity time-outs and password protection
(4) visitors to Menai’s office must be authorized by an Employee; and
(5) Non-Public Personal Information is securely disposed of as set forth below.
C. Disposal of Non-Public Personal Information
In order to protect against the risks of fraud and fraud-related crimes, including identity theft, Menai has also adopted the following internal procedures relating to the secure disposal of Non-Public Personal Information:
(1) to the extent not covered under Advisers Act Rule 204-2, hard copies of Non-Public Personal Information (or any extra hard-copies of Non-Public Personal Information, whether or not covered by Advisers Act Rule 204-2) shall be destroyed in a manner so that such information cannot be practicably read or reconstructed; and
(2) to the extent not covered under Advisers Act Rule 204-2, Non-Public Personal Information which is stored on disk, CD, tape or other electronic media shall be cleared, purged, declassified, overwritten and/or encrypted in such a manner so that any information contained therein cannot be restored or decrypted;
(3) As a general matter, the Chief Compliance Officer will require that each third-party service provider engaged by Menai that obtains access to Non-Public Personal Information during the course of its services to Menai have similar policies and procedures relating to the secure use, maintenance and disposal of Non-Public Personal Information. This will generally be accomplished by sending such third-party service providers a copy of Menai’s privacy notice and requesting such third-party service providers affirm they have privacy policies and procedures that are at least as stringent as Menai’s policies and procedures.
D. State Privacy Laws
Certain states have adopted additional consumer privacy laws that may be applicable to investment advisers with investors who are residents of those states. For example, Massachusetts requires any company with personal information about a resident of Massachusetts to adopt and implement a comprehensive information security program. Such security program must include appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to maintain the security of personal information relating to Massachusetts residents.
To ensure compliance with state privacy laws, the Chief Compliance Officer will, in consultation with outside counsel and/or compliance consultants to the extent appropriate, periodically review state laws and determine whether Menai’s policies and procedures are adequate in light of such review. To the extent required, Menai will revise its procedures in order to comply with such laws.
E. Privacy Notice
Menai will deliver initial notification of its privacy policies and procedures to Investors and an annual notice to current Investors thereafter in the form of a privacy notice. Menai generally provides the initial notice to Investors by including it in the offering documents or subscription agreements. An acceptable method for delivering an annual notice would be through a cover letter accompanying a monthly statement, quarterly letter to current Investors, or Form ADV Part 2. The Chief Compliance Officer, or his Designated Person, is responsible for ensuring that initial and annual privacy notices are distributed in accordance with the above requirements.
If an Employee has any doubt as to whether certain data constitutes Non-Public Personal Information, such Employee shall consult with the Chief Compliance Officer.
Menai will not treat a user of the Site as an investment advisory client by virtue of their accessing the Site.
