StratiFi places a high value on the trust and confidence our customers place in us. Today’s technology allows for broad and deep sharing of information, so it is important that we have put in place safeguards and policies to protect your information.
We collect only the information we need to serve you and administer our business. We are committed to keeping your information confidential and we place strict limits and controls on the use and sharing of your information. We make every effort to ensure the accuracy of your information. We collect, retain and use client information to aid in providing you with suitable investment recommendations and high quality customer service. This information comes to us from a variety of sources. It can include information you provide on applications or forms such as name, address, social security number, date of birth, income, net worth, and information about account transactions (such as purchases, sales and account balances). The information could be received while you are a client of our firm and/or could have been collected by your advisor prior to joining our firm.
We do not disclose any non-public personal information about you or former clients to anyone, except as permitted by law and as set forth in this document. Specifically, so that our firm may continue to offer products and services that meet your investing needs, and to effect transactions that you request, we may disclose information to our employees, affiliates, registered representatives and their affiliated businesses, companies that perform administrative or marketing services on our behalf, and reporting and regulatory agencies (pursuant to Anti-Money Laundering requirements). As stated in our agreements with these companies, they will only use non-public information for the services for which we have specified, and are not permitted to use or share this information for any other purpose. These firms are required to have policies and procedures to protect your confidential information. Access to your information will be provided only to authorized affiliates; employees; vendors including those permitted by law in order to prevent fraud, control risk, resolve complaints or as otherwise required by law; credit reporting agencies; registered associates; and staff members who require the information to facilitate and administer your business. We maintain (and require these authorized parties to maintain) physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal and state standards to protect this information. If the representative serving your account(s) leaves our firm to join another firm, he or she may retain copies of your personal information to continue to service you at the new firm, but is otherwise required to keep confidential the personal information obtained from you while affiliated with us. Under no circumstances do we sell this information to any person or entity. If you decide at some point to close your account or become an inactive client, we will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices described in this notice.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. StratiFi may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by StratiFi affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers, and how our users use and interact with the Services. Also, in an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, StratiFi often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis. StratiFi may share this non-identifiable and aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners, but this type of non-identifiable and aggregate information does not identify you personally. StratiFi may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our Services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets and you will be notified via email and/or a prominent notice on our Web site of any change in ownership or uses of your personal information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal information.
If your personal information changes, or if you no longer desire our service, you may correct, update, amend, delete or request deletion by making the change in your registered account settings page, by emailing our Customer Support at email@example.com or by contacting us at the contact information listed below. We will respond to your request within 30 days. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. When you sign up for our Services or newsletter(s), we will send periodic emails to you regarding the Services or to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. Out of respect for your privacy, you may choose to stop receiving our newsletter or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions included in these emails or you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We follow generally accepted standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web site, you can contact us at email@example.com.
Our Web site may offer a publicly accessible blog. You should be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be read, collected, and used by others who access them. To request removal of your personal information from our blog, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
