Disclosure of your information:
Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking:
Modern slavery is a term used to encompass slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour, bonded and child labour and human trafficking. Human trafficking is where a person arranges or facilitates the travel of another person with a view to that person being exploited. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of human rights.
Conducting our business in an ethical and honest way is central to how we operate and how we expect our stakeholders, suppliers and contractors to operate.
MARK is committed to responsible supply chain management and our objective is to comply with all applicable laws and regulations and strive for best practice with regard to responsible supply chain management. We also expect our suppliers and contractors and their directors, officers, employees and representatives to conduct all business activities in full compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.
MARK does not tolerate modern slavery or human trafficking and will not knowingly engage in, or deal or partner with any suppliers or contractors who engage in slavery or human trafficking. The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our organisation or supply chain is the responsibility of all those working for us or on our behalf. Workers must not engage in, facilitate or fail to report any activities that might lead to or suggest a breach of this policy.
Any invitation by us to a supplier or contractor to provide services is based on this policy and the principles that suppliers and contractors that we appoint do not engage in modern slavery or human trafficking within their own operations or their supply chain and that they will each hold their suppliers to the same standards.
Management at all levels are responsible for ensuring that those reporting to them understand and comply with this policy and are given adequate training on it and the issue of modern slavery in supply chains.
If any employee or anyone working for MARK has any reason to believe that modern slavery of any form may exist within our organization or our supply chain, or may occur in the future or have any concerns or suspicions relating to compliance with this policy, they must bring this to our attention in one of the ways set out below.
In the first instance, employees should report to their line manager. If the matter is extremely serious or it is felt not appropriate to raise with their line manager employees should raise their concerns with the General Counsel or the Chief Financial Officer.
MARK may investigate suspicious activity within the group’s operations and supply chain and any clear and substantial breach of modern slavery and human trafficking will be taken seriously including contract termination or referral to the authorities.
We aim to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if they turn out to be mistaken. We are committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment as a result of reporting in good faith their suspicion that modern slavery of whatever form is or may be taking place in any part of our own business or in any of our supply chains.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, interns, agents, contractors, suppliers, external consultants, third party representatives and business partners.

Website Fair Processing Notice
1. What is this document and why should you read it?
This privacy notice explains how and why MARK Capital Management Limited, 30 Broadwick Street, London W1F 8JB (also referred to as “MARK”, “we”, “our” and “us”) uses personal data about the users (referred to as “you”) of our website http://www.thisismark.com (the “Website”).
You should read this notice, so that you know what we are doing with your personal data when you use the Website. Please also read any other privacy notices that we give you, that might apply to our use of your personal data in specific circumstances in the future.
2. MARK’s data protection responsibilities
“Personal data” is any information that relates to an identifiable natural person. Your name, address, contact details, online browsing behaviour are all examples of your personal data, if they identify you.
The term “process” means any activity relating to personal data, including, by way of example, collection, storage, use, consultation and transmission.
MARK is a “controller” of your personal data. This is a legal term – it means that we make decisions about how and why we process your personal data and, because of this, we are responsible for making sure it is used in accordance with data protection laws.
3. What types of personal data do we collect when you use the Website and where do we get it from?
We collect a limited amount of personal data about you when you use the Website, as set out below. We get the personal data solely from your use of the Website, rather than from third parties who have collected it entirely separately, although we do use third parties to provide services to us in relation to our website and in this way they are relevant to collection of your personal data.
The personal data we collect when you use the Website does not identify you by name but it does identify you because of what are called ‘online identifiers’. This personal data is:
the IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the device you use to visit the Website;
information about the web browser (type of browser and version) you use when visiting the Website;
the pages which you view when you visit the Website during a browsing session; and
information gathered by certain cookies from which you can be identified because of the IP address which relates to your device (please see paragraph 5 for more details on cookies).
4. What do we do with your personal data, and why?
We are required by law to always have a permitted reason or justification (called a “lawful basis”) for processing your personal data. The lawful basis which underpins our processing of your personal data (the ‘online identifiers’) is as follows:
Lawful reason for processing your IP address, your browser type/version, and cookies which are necessary for the functionality of the Website or which are otherwise categorised as essential for the Website to operate and which link to your IP address: it is necessary for us to process this personal data for the purposes of our ‘legitimate interests’, which are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms. Our legitimate interests in respect of our processing of this personal data are that, for the Website to function properly when you visit it, these cookies are necessary. We have a legitimate interest in enabling that proper functioning.
Lawful reason for processing cookies which link to your IP address and which are non-essential for the functionality of the Website (ie it would still work without these cookies) , including those which involve processing a record of the pages you view on the Website and from where you are viewing it: we process this personal data on the basis of your consent. If you choose not to consent to the use of these cookies, the Website may not work as efficiently for your during your visit to the Website.
We may also convert your personal data into statistical or aggregated form to better protect your privacy, or so that you are not identified or identifiable from it. Anonymised data cannot be linked back to you. We may use it to conduct research and analysis, including to produce statistical research and reports. For example, to help us understand how many people visit our Website over a specific time period.
Sometimes we need to disclose your personal data to other people
From time to time we ask third parties to carry out certain business functions for us, such as the administration of the Website and our IT support. These third parties will process your personal data on our behalf (as what is called our ‘data processor’). We will disclose your personal data to these parties so that they can perform those functions. Before we disclose your personal data to other people, we will make sure that they have appropriate security standards in place to make sure your personal data is protected and we will enter into a written contract imposing appropriate security standards on them. Examples of these third party service providers include: (i) companies who help us to gather information about the pages most frequently visited on our website and who provide tools for website owners to get a better understanding of users interact with those websites and which help the website owner make their website better; (ii) IT hosting and IT service providers.
In certain circumstances, we will also disclose your personal data to third parties who will receive it as controllers of your personal data in their own right for the purposes set out above, in particular:
if we transfer, purchase, reorganise, merge or sell any part of our business or the business of a third party, and we disclose or transfer your personal data to the prospective seller, buyer or other third party involved in a business transfer, reorganisation or merger arrangement (and their advisors); and
if we need to disclose your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation, to enforce a contract or to protect the rights, property or safety of our employees, customers or others.
When you visit the Website, we generate one or more “cookies” which we deploy with your consent (if required). Please see paragraph 5.9 for what a “cookie” is.
Not all cookies require consent to be placed on your device. Essential cookies do not require consent. Non-essential cookies do require consent. This is governed by eprivacy law.
Some cookies collect personal data. This is governed by data protection law. This means a lawful reason is needed for us to collect that personal data (by the cookie). Either this is legitimate interests or it is consent. More details are at paragraphs 4.1.1 and 4.1.2.
The table below summarizes the different types of cookie we use on the Website, together with their respective purpose and duration (i.e. how long each cookie will remain on your device).
For cookies where we require consent (whether that requirement comes from eprivacy law or data protection law) we ask for this consent by a consent capture mechanism included in the banner you see when you first visit our Website. You are asked to take a positive action (such as click to give consent) if you do wish to give your consent.
All cookies can be removed from your device at any time. To do this, you should follow the instructions on our cookies banner, set your browser settings accordingly or not use the Website. Please be aware that if you disable the cookies that we use, this may impact your user experience while using the Website.
If you give consent to cookies, then wish to withdraw that consent, you can do this in the same way as described at paragraph 5.5. In addition, see paragraph 9.2 below which is relevant where a cookie collects your personal data.
Two types of cookies may be used on the Website – “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the Website. A persistent cookie remains on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie and your browser settings).

6. Where in the world is your personal data transferred to?
If any of our processing activities require your personal data to be transferred outside the European Economic Area, we will only make that transfer if:
the country to which the personal data is to be transferred ensures an adequate level of protection for personal data;
we have put in place appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data, such as an appropriate contract with the recipient. (Please contact us as described below in this privacy notice if you wish to obtain a copy of these.);
the transfer is necessary for one of the reasons specified in data protection legislation, such as the performance of a contract between us and you; or you explicitly consent to the transfer.
7. How do we keep your personal data secure?
We will take specific steps (as required by applicable data protection laws) to protect your personal data from unlawful or unauthorised processing and accidental loss, destruction or damage.
8. How long do we keep your personal data for?
We will only retain your personal data for a limited period of time. How long we retain it for depends on the basis on which it was provided and what we use it for. We apply the following criteria to determine how long we retain it:
where our processing is based on your consent (see paragraph 4.1.2), and you have given us such consent, we will not retain the relevant personal data if you later withdraw such consent (unless there is another lawful basis for us to retain your personal data) or, if earlier, when the purposes for our processing of that personal data have been fulfilled; and
9. What are your rights in relation to your personal data and how can you exercise them?
You have certain legal rights in relation to any personal data about you which we hold. They do not apply in all circumstances. If you wish to exercise any of them we will explain at that time if they are engaged or not. The rights are:
the right to be informed about the processing of your personal data;
the right to have your personal data corrected if it is inaccurate and to have incomplete personal data completed;
the right to object to processing of your personal data;
the right to restrict processing of your personal data;
the right to have your personal data erased (the “right to be forgotten”);
the right to request access to your personal data and to obtain information about how we process it;
the right to move, copy or transfer your personal data (“data portability”).
Where our processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. If you do decide to withdraw your consent we will stop processing your personal data for that purpose, unless there is another lawful basis we can rely on – in which case, we will let you know. Your withdrawal of your consent won’t impact any of our processing up to that point.
Where our processing of your personal data is necessary for our legitimate interests, you can object to this processing at any time. If you do this, we will need to show either a compelling reason why our processing should continue, which overrides your interests, rights and freedoms or that the processing is necessary for us to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.
If you wish to exercise any of your rights please contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Information Commissioner’s Office, which is the UK data protection regulator. More information can be found on the Information Commissioner’s Office website at https://ico.org.uk/.
