Your privacy is very important to us. This notice (“Privacy Notice”) is provided by BlueDrive Global Investors LLP (“we” or “us”) and sets out our policies with respect to the collection, sharing and use of personal information.
How we collect information about you
We may collect personal data about you through:
We may also, in some circumstances, receive personal information about you from third parties, such as service providers or trading counterparties, regulatory or law enforcement agencies, credit reference agencies and agencies conducting background checks. Personal information may also be obtained from publicly accessible sources of information, such as public databases, industry associations, social media and online professional networks.
Why we collect information about you
We may collect and use your personal information for the purposes of administering the relationship between us, marketing our products and services to you or the businesses with which you are associated, monitoring and analysing our activities, and complying with applicable legal or regulatory requirements.
We will use one of the permitted grounds under the applicable law to process your information. Such grounds include instances where you have given your consent and cases where your consent is not required under applicable law, such as where we are required to comply with a legal obligation, or where we, or a third party, determine that it is necessary for our legitimate interests to collect and use your personal information.
The legitimate interests to collect your personal information may include any of the purposes identified above and any other purpose where we or a third party have determined that you have a reasonable expectation for us or a third party to collect or use your personal information for such purpose. You have the right to object to the use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
What are the consequences of failing to provide your personal information?
As a regulated financial services firm, we are subject to legal and regulatory obligations that may require us to collect and store your personal information, such as the requirements to comply with the applicable law on prevention of financial crime, tax and regulatory reporting, or the rules on recording and monitoring of communications (as described below).
We may also need to collect and use your personal information for the purposes of entering into or performance of a contractual arrangement between us.
A refusal to provide us with personal information may, depending on the purpose for which your personal information is required, have various consequences such as us being unable to communicate with you, the termination of any service or other contractual arrangement between us, or, where we have a reasonable suspicion of illegal activity, we may be required to make a report to regulatory or enforcement agencies.
The types of personal data we may collect and use
The categories of personal data we may collect will depend on the nature of our relationship with you and the purpose of which information is being collected. Such personal data may include names, residential addresses or other contact details, signature, nationality, date and place of birth, national insurance or other tax identification number, photographs, copies of identification documents, bank account details, information about assets or net worth, credit history, criminal and administrative offences, source of funds details, or other sensitive information, such as certain special categories of personal data contained in relevant documents or materials (including, in some circumstances, information about a person’s ethnic origin, religious beliefs, or health).
Do we use automated decision-making processes?
Do we share your personal information with third parties?
We may (to the extent relevant to the purpose for which we collect your information), share your personal data with third parties, such as:
Transfers of personal information to countries outside of the European Economic Area (EEA)
Due to the international nature of our business, your personal data may be transferred to countries outside of the EEA, such as to jurisdictions where we or our clients conduct business or have a service provider, including countries that may not have the same level of data protection as that afforded by the EU General Data Protection Regulation or other data protection rules applicable to us (collectively, “Data Protection Law”). In these circumstances, we take steps to ensure that the recipient agrees to keep your information confidential and that it is held securely in accordance with the requirements of Data Protection Law, such as by requesting appropriate contractual undertakings in our legal agreements with service providers.
For how long do we keep your personal information?
We will generally keep personal information about you for as long as necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was collected, or for such longer period if required under applicable law or necessary for the purposes of our other legitimate interests.
The applicable retention period will depend on various factors, such as any legal obligation to which we or our service providers are subject as well as on whether you decide to exercise your right to request the deletion of your information from our systems. As a minimum, information about you will be retained for the entire duration of any business relationship we may have with you, and for a minimum period of five years after the termination of any such relationship.
We will, from time to time, review the purpose for which we have collected information about you and decide whether to retain it, update it, or securely delete it, if the information is no longer required.
What are your rights?
You have certain rights under Data Protection Law in respect of the personal data we hold about you and which you may exercise. These rights are:
How to contact us

Copies of recordings will be stored for a period of five years, or such other longer period as we may determine from time to time.
Conduct of Business Sourcebook rule 2.2.3R requires BlueDrive Global Investors LLP (“the Firm”) to include a disclosure on its website stating the nature of its commitment to the UK Financial Reporting Council's Stewardship Code (the "Code") or, where it does not commit to the Code, its alternative investment strategy.
The Code sets out seven principles to enhance the quality of engagement between institutional investors and companies and promote efficient governance. The principles require institutional investors to:
Compliance with the Code is voluntary but where investors choose not to comply with one or more of the principles, they must publish on their websites statements:
Although the Firm generally supports the principles of the Code, it has decided that it would not be appropriate to commit to it.
The Firm provides investment management services to a Cayman Island domiciled fund, investing in long/short equities and equity-like instruments in various jurisdictions, including the UK. It must, therefore, apply a consistent global approach when engaging with issuers and their management in all the jurisdictions in which it invests. It would not be appropriate for it to commit to a code of practice that applies to a specific jurisdiction.
For further information on the Firm’s investment and governance approach, please contact the Firm’s Compliance Officer, James Minshull at email@example.com.
