Privacy policy

As part of our ongoing commitment to data protection and transparency, Lemanik Asset Management S.A. and all Lemanik European branches (together “Lemanik”) addressed the new standards introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in this Privacy Policy.

In this Privacy Policy, we cover the nature of the personal data that is collected and stored by us, the purpose and the legal basis for processing your data, the data sharing, the data retention and your rights with regards to your data as data subject.

In the context of our service offering, Lemanik mainly acts as data processor for the personal data we process on behalf of our clients (e.g. investment funds).

Nevertheless, in line with this Privacy Policy, Lemanik acts as a data controller for the personal data we process for our own purposes such as described below.

In accordance with the GDPR definitions, when we refer to “personal data” we mean any data that could identify an individual, directly or indirectly, in particular, by reference to an identifier such as a name, ID number, location data, signature or online identifier.

Lemanik collects personal data and will act as the data controller of this data if you:

  • are a client or represent one of our clients ( e.g. client being the sponsor of an investment fund, a client entering into discretionary mandate agreement with us)

  • Sensitive data (e.g. in specific situation such as Politically Exposed Persons we may collect political data on you as data subject and on your relatives)

2. How we use your personal data

 We will only process your personal data on the basis allowed in the GDPR, for the purposes below, and we will limit the use of sensitive data which have special legal protection.
