To help you better understand how your personal information is protected here at Sands Capital, we are providing you with the following statement describing our practices and policies with respect to the privacy of investor information. The following privacy notice applies to current and former investors in private investment vehicles managed by Sands Capital.
Financial companies choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include, but is not limited to:
• Social Security Number
• Account Number
• Account Balances
• Transaction History
Financial companies typically need to share consumers’ personal information to run their everyday business. In the section below, we list the reasons financial companies can share their consumers’ personal information, the reasons Sands Capital chooses to share; and whether you can limit this sharing.
How does Sands Capital collect information?
We may collect nonpublic personal information about you, for example, when you enter into a subscription agreement with a fund we advise. We do not collect personal information from others.
How does Sands Capital protect your information?
We understand that the protection of nonpublic personal information is of the utmost importance. To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use security measures that comply with federal law. These measures include:
• Computer safeguards

Please note: If you are a new client or investor, we can begin sharing your information 30 days from the date we sent this notice. When you are no longer a client or investor, we continue to share your information as described in this notice. However, you can contact us at any time to limit our sharing.
Why can’t I limit all sharing?
Federal law gives you the right to limit only:
• sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes – information about your credit worthiness
• affiliates from using your information to market to you
• sharing for nonaffiliates to market to you
State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
What happens when I limit sharing for an account I hold jointly with someone else?
Your choices will apply to everyone on your account.
What is the definition of “affiliate” and how may my information be shared with them for marketing purposes?
Affiliates include companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies. For marketing purposes, we may share your contact information with our advisory affiliates, including Sands Capital Management, LLC, an SEC-registered investment adviser.
