Any other purposes for which we wish to use your personal data will be notified to you and your personal data will not be used for any such purpose without obtaining your prior consent.
4. Third Parties
We may pass your personal data on to third-party service providers contracted to us in the course of dealing with you.

When they no longer need your data to fulfil this service, they will dispose of the details in line with our procedures. If we wish to pass your sensitive personal data onto a third party we will only do so once we have obtained your consent, unless we are legally required to do otherwise.
5. Consents and opt-outs

Any information that is disclosed in these areas becomes public information and you should always be careful when deciding to disclose your personal information.
8. Transfers outside the EEA
Services on the Internet are accessible globally so collection and transmission of personal data is not always limited to one country. We may transfer your personal data, for the purposes listed above, to other group companies, service providers or other third parties which may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area, whose laws may not give the level of protection to personal data as within the UK. This will include transfers to Nuveen companies in the US (who may collect some data directly from you, in relation to the sites which it operates) and to third parties who provide us with email and marketing services. Where we conduct any transfers we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this

Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We have implemented information security policies, rules and technical measures to protect the personal data that we have under our control from:
- unauthorised access

Special Notice for persons in the UK
UK Stewardship Code
Nuveen is an institutional asset management firm that advises on and manages physical properties on behalf of our clients and does not manage any listed equities, therefore the Financial Reporting Council’s Stewardship Code which relates to equity holdings in UK listed companies is not relevant.
Cayman Islands Privacy Notice
The purpose of this notice is to provide you with information on our use of your personal data in accordance with the Data Protection Law, 2017 of the Cayman Islands (the "DPL").
In this document, "we", "us" and "our" refers to Nuveen, LLC, its subsidiaries including its affiliated investment advisers, a fund or account managed or advised by them (together, "Nuveen") and its or their affiliates and/or delegates.
By virtue of making an investment with Nuveen and your associated interactions with us (including any subscription (whether past, present of future), including the recording of electronic communications or phone calls where applicable) or by virtue of you otherwise providing us with personal information on individuals connected with you as an investor (for example directors, trustees, employees, representatives, shareholders, investors, clients, beneficial owners or agents), you will provide us with certain personal information which constitutes personal data within the meaning of the DPL ("Investor Data"). We may also obtain Investor Data from other public sources. Investor Data may include, without limitation, the following information relating to you and/or any individuals connected with you as an investor:
- Contact information (e.g., your full name, business and/or home mailing address, telephone number, business and/or personal email address, job title);
- Identification information (e.g., date of birth, social security number, tax or other identification numbers and documents);
- Financial Information (e.g., documents and information about your income, account transactions and holdings with us)
- Browsing Information (e.g., Internet Protocol (or IP) address, browser language and type, domain name, operating system, location data, resources that you access).
In our use of Investor Data, Nuveen (e.g., the respective fund) will be characterized as a "data controller" for the purposes of the DPL. Nuveen's affiliates and delegates may act as "data processors" for the purposes of the DPL.
Who this Affects
If you are a natural person, this will affect you directly. If you are a corporate investor (including, for these purposes, legal arrangements such as trusts or exempted limited partnerships) that provides us with Investor Data on individuals connected to you for any reason in relation to your investment with us, this will be relevant for those individuals and you should transmit this document to such individuals or otherwise advise them of its content.
How We May Use Your Personal Data
Nuveen (e.g., the respective fund), as the data controller, may collect, store and use Investor Data for lawful purposes, including, in particular:
- Where this is necessary for the performance of our rights and obligations under the Subscription Agreement and/or the constitutional and operational documents of the fund;
- Where this is necessary for compliance with a legal and regulatory obligation to which the fund or respective entity is subject (such as compliance with anti-money laundering and FATCA/CRS requirements); and/or
- Where this is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests and such interests are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms.
Additionally, a Nuveen affiliate or a respective fund’s administrator (the "Administrator"), may use Investor Data, for example to provide its services to the fund or to discharge the legal or regulatory requirements that apply directly to it or in respect of which the fund relies upon the Administrator, but such use of Investor Data by the Administrator will always be compatible with at least one of the aforementioned purposes for which we process Investor Data.
Why We May Transfer Your Personal Data
In certain circumstances we and/or our authorised affiliates or delegates may be legally obliged to share Investor Data and other information in possession of Nuveen with the relevant regulatory authorities such as the Cayman Islands Monetary Authority or the Tax Information Authority. They, in turn, may exchange this information with foreign authorities, including tax authorities.
We may share Investor Data with the following parties (which may be amended from time to time) who provide services to a respective fund and their respective affiliates (which may include certain entities located outside the Cayman Islands or the European Economic Area), who will process your personal data on our behalf:
- Nuveen affiliates (e.g., for a respective fund);
- Service providers (e.g., attorneys, auditors, accountants, tax advisers, administrators, custodians, depositaries, distribution managers and brokerage firms, event organizers or other agent, adviser or service provider of Nuveen, a Nuveen fund and/or a Nuveen client);
- Other counter-parties (e.g., managers, general partners or investment advisers or administrators or any of their respective agents or representatives); and
- Regulatory authorities (including tax authorities), courts and bodies as required by law or requested for internal investigations and reporting.
The Data Protection Measures We Take
Any transfer of Investor Data by us or our duly authorised affiliates and/or delegates outside of the Cayman Islands shall be in accordance with the requirements of the DPL.
We and our duly authorised affiliates and/or delegates shall apply appropriate technical and organisational information security measures designed to protect against unauthorised or unlawful processing of Investor Data, and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, Investor Data.
