We recognise that you have rights as a “data subject”, and that we have an obligation to uphold these rights.

Depending on our reason for processing your data, your information rights may include:


Right Explanation
Right to be informed This encompasses the obligation for us to be transparent in how we collect and use your personal data.
Right of access You have the right to access your personal data and supplementary information.
Right to rectification If the information we hold on you is inaccurate or incomplete, you can request we correct this.
Right to erasure You can request we delete or remove personal data where there is no compelling reason for us to continue processing it.
Right to restrict processing You have the right to request we cease processing your data (but not erase it):

  • If you consider it inaccurate or incomplete;
  • Where you object to processing and we are considering whether we still have a legitimate interest to process it; or
  • Where we do not need the data for the original reason we collected it, but may need it to support a legal claim.
Right to data portability Where you have consented to our processing your data, or where the processing is necessary for us to deliver a contract, you can request a copy of that data be provided to a third party in electronic form.
Right to object You have the right to object to our processing under certain circumstances.
Rights relating to automated decision making including profiling We do not apply automated decision making. If this were to change we must:

  • Give you information about the processing;
  • Introduce simple ways for you to request human intervention or challenge a decision; and
  • Carry out regular checks to make sure that our systems are working as intended.

Innisfree may collect your personal data:

  • As part of anti-money laundering and know your customer checks;

  • Contact information such as your physical address, email address and other contact details;
  • Financial information;
  • Your employment history and references;
  • Identification information we require as part of anti-money laundering or know your customer checks which may include photographic ID such as copies of passports;

  • For any other purpose which you have provided the information to Innisfree.

If you have provided express consent to the processing of data for purposes other than as listed above then we may do so for those purposes. You may withdraw this consent at any time.

Sharing of data

Innisfree uses an international network of advisers and service providers. Irrespective of how we obtain your personal data it may be necessary or desirable to share this personal data with third parties such as professional advisers, including their subcontractors, in jurisdictions outside of the European Economic Area. We will only do this for the purposes outlined in the ‘Information we collect and how this is used’ section, above.

Where we share your personal data in this way we will do this in accordance with applicable data protection laws and will take appropriate steps to ensure the third parties undertake to ensure the appropriate safeguards are in place to protect the personal data.

Retention of data

Innisfree will retain your personal data in line with the life of its managed funds which is ordinarily for a period expiring 10 years after the expiry of its final long-term income fund.

Innisfree uses a perpetual archiving system for inbound and outbound email and personal data provided by you or transmitted by us in this medium will be retained within this archive indefinitely. Further, whilst Innisfree will make reasonable endeavours to destroy personal data when it is no longer reasonably required for the purposes it was supplied or gathered we may retain this personal data for additional periods to the extent deletion would require the destruction of archiving or back-up processes or where it is required or may be required for regulatory, legal or other statutory purposes.

Where data has been shared with third parties for the purposes described above this will be subject to retention by those third parties in accordance with their own data retention policies.

Securing your information

We will take appropriate and proportional technical and organisational measures to ensure appropriate security of personal data, including protection against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage. Personal data will be stored in accordance with our policies concerning data storage, access and retention.

Use of cookies and other web tracking devices

Innisfree does not track activity on its website through the use of cookies or other web tracking devices.
