2. Risk Factors
The counterparty to a derivative or other contractual agreement or synthetic financial product could become unable to honour its commitments to the Funds, potentially creating a partial or total loss for the Funds. The Funds can be exposed to different currencies. Changes in foreign exchange rates could create losses. A derivative may not perform as expected, and may create losses greater than the cost of the derivative. If a fund uses derivatives for leverage, it makes it more sensitive to certain market or interest rate movements and may cause above-average volatility and risk of loss.
Equity prices fluctuate daily, based on many factors including general, economic, industry or company news. In difficult market conditions, the Funds may not be able to sell a security for full value or at all. This could affect performance and could cause the fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares. The Funds may take positions that seek to profit if the price of a security falls. A large rise in price of the security may cause large losses. Failures at service providers could lead to disruptions of fund operations or losses.

In the course of its business, Tellworth may collect, use, store and transfer personal information from individuals that are employees, directors, officers or other representatives or agents of market counterparties, professional services and other service providers, trade associations, public bodies and other entities or undertakings. Such personal data is typically limited in scope, and includes, for example, the name and contact details of such individuals, as well as some technical data (such as internet protocol addresses), usage data and information about marketing and communication preferences.
Collection of Personal Data
Tellworth may collect personal data through a range of means. These may include direct interactions (where a person provides personal data to Tellworth through correspondence or other direct methods of communication), through third-party service providers (for example, recruitment agents) or publicly available sources (where Tellworth receives personal data through a publicly available source such as a website or publicly-available registry).
Use of Personal Data
Tellworth will only process personal data in circumstances where it has established a lawful basis under GDPR to do so. These circumstances include where the processing of the relevant data relates to a legitimate interest of Tellworth, further described below. In such circumstances Tellworth will have established that the processing is necessary for the relevant purpose, and not inconsistent with the interests, rights or freedoms of a relevant data subject.
In accordance with the above, Tellworth has determined that the lawful bases for its processing of personal data are the legitimate interests of Tellworth to undertake activities necessary and ancillary to the carrying on of an investment management business, including where necessary for the purposes of Tellworth carrying out its activities relating to any fund, vehicle or account in respect of which Tellworth acts as manager, investment manager, sub investment manager, investment adviser or subinvestment adviser (the “Funds”), the administration of the Funds, the investment activities of the Funds, otherwise in furtherance of any contract entered into with respect to the activities of the Funds, to exercise and comply with the relevant Fund’s or Tellworth’s rights and obligations at law or under regulation where such obligations are not set out under the laws of any member state of the European
Economic Area (“EEA”), to establish, exercise or defend legal claims and in order to protect and enforce its (or another person’s) rights, property, or safety, or to assist others to do the same, and in order to provide information about its services and any investment products it offers.
In addition, Tellworth may also control or process personal data where necessary to comply with legal or regulatory obligations applicable to them under the laws of the European Union or any member state of the EEA, or in order to give effect to a contract, or to take necessary pre-contractual steps with a view to potentially entering into a contract (including in its capacity as an employer or a prospective employer), to the extent applicable.

Any person subject to GDPR who does not wish their personal data to be processed for marketing purposes may opt out of such processing by notifying the Head of Compliance of BennBridge Ltd at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tellworth will only use personal data for the purposes that it has been collected for, unless it reasonably considers that it needs to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with the original purpose of the control or processing. Any person requiring information with respect to any additional purpose for which personal data may be controlled or processed may obtain such information from the Head of Compliance of BennBridge Ltd at email@example.com. If Tellworth needs to control or process personal data for an unrelated purpose, it will use its reasonable endeavours to notify affected persons and to explain the basis on which it is permitted to undertake the same.

The relevant third parties with whom such personal data may be shared include entities appointed to provide services to the Funds, Tellworth and their affiliates, and regulatory, legal and tax authorities. Further details of the third parties with whom personal data may be shared are available on request from the Head of Compliance of BennBridge Ltd at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tellworth will seek to ensure that third parties to whom any personal data may be disclosed will not use personal data for their own purposes and only process personal data for specified purposes and otherwise in accordance with the instructions of Tellworth and/or with the GDPR.
Transfer of Personal Data outside the European Economic Area
The activities of Tellworth are such that it may be necessary for personal data to be transferred and/or processed outside the EEA.
In circumstances where Tellworth transfers personal data outside the EEA, it will seek to ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring that personal data is generally transferred only
to persons in countries outside the EEA in one of the following circumstances.
- To persons and undertakings in countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level
of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
- To persons and undertakings to whom the transfer of such personal data is made pursuant to
a contract that is compliant with the model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries from time to time approved by the European Commission.
- To persons and undertakings based in the United States if they are part of the EU-U.S. Privacy
Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the United States.
Further information on specific mechanisms utilised by Tellworth transferring personal data outside the EEA and the countries to which such transfer may be made may be obtained from the Head of Compliance of BennBridge Ltd at email@example.com upon request.
Tellworth will retain personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it has been collected. This will include any period of retention required to satisfy any legal, regulatory, taxation, accounting, regulatory or reporting requirement applicable to Tellworth.
In determining the appropriate retention period for any personal data, Tellworth will consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of the data, the purpose for which the relevant data is being processed, the extent to which the purposes for which the relevant data is being processed can be achieved by other means and any applicable legal requirements. Without prejudice to the generality of the forgoing, Tellworth have determined that it will retain records for at least five years, in accordance with the rules, requirements and guidance of
the United Kingdom Financial Conduct Authority.
Details of retention periods applicable to personal data subject to GDPR are available upon request from the Head of Compliance of BennBridge Ltd at firstname.lastname@example.org. In some circumstances, a person may request that Tellworth delete any personal data retained by it. Further, in some circumstances, Tellworth may anonymize personal data for research or statistical purposes, in which case such information may be retained and utilised indefinitely without further notice.
Rights of Persons
Under GDPR, persons whose data is processed by Tellworth will have certain rights. These rights include the right to access personal data, the right to require correction of personal data, the right to require erasure of personal data in certain circumstances, the right to restrict processing of personal data, and the right to require a transfer of personal data. In addition, if the processing of personal data is based on a legitimate interest of Tellworth, a person will have the right to object to the processing of that personal data.
Any person seeking to exercise any such right should contact the Head of Compliance of BennBridge Ltd at email@example.com. In certain circumstances, Tellworth may charge reasonable fees if any such request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive.
