Collection of Client Information. We collect personal information about our clients mainly through the following sources:
Disclosure of Nonpublic Personal Information. We do not sell or rent client information. We do not disclose nonpublic personal information about our clients or former clients, except as permitted by law. For example, we may share nonpublic personal information with service providers (e.g., attorneys, accountants, administrators and other professionals) in connection with the administration and servicing of a client’s investment. In addition, we may disclose information to service providers, including administrators and counterparties with whom we do business, in order to satisfy any anti-money laundering-related customer identification procedures required by any laws or regulations applicable to such entities.
Protection of Client Information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to protect nonpublic personal information. Our policy is to require that all employees, financial professionals and companies providing services on our behalf keep our client information confidential. In particular, we restrict access to the personal and account information of clients to those employees who need to know that information in the course of their job responsibilities. Also, third parties with whom we share client information must agree to follow appropriate standards of security and confidentiality.
