Commonwealth Asset Management Group, LLC (CAMG) through its various affiliates has the ability to distribute a variety of financial products and services to you. Recognizing our client relationships are priority one, we understand the trust our clients have placed with us and we are committed to the responsible management, use, and protection of our customers’ personal information. We take pride with our privacy and confidentiality practices, and we want you to know how we protect your information and use it to service your account(s).
CAMG collects personal information about you to help us serve your financial needs, process transactions in your account(s), provide customer service, offer new products or services, and fulfill legal and regulatory requirements.
CAMG collects nonpublic personal information from you, as well as from other sources. The sources and the information collected may include:
- Information you provide to us or to our affiliated entities through applications and related forms, through discussions with our customer service staff, or on our website, such as address, social security number, birth date, net worth, assets, income, and medical information, if applying for insurance
- Information regarding your transaction history with us, such as products or services purchased, account balances, trading history, and payment history, as well as information from information service companies and consumer reporting agencies, such as your transactions or credit relationships with unaffiliated third parties
- Information from other unaffiliated third parties, including employers, associations, benefit plan sponsors, and other institutions, if you transfer positions or funds such as address, social security number, net worth, assets, and income
We may disclose any of the nonpublic personal information that we collect about you, as required to conduct our business and as permitted or required by law. We may share information about our customers with our affiliated broker/dealer and/or with unaffiliated financial or non-financial services providers, such as insurance companies, mutual fund companies, banks, investment firms, third-party administrators, clearing firms, and other third parties who assist us in providing account maintenance or customer service to your account(s). We also may share your information with regulators and law enforcement organizations, or in response to a subpoena or discovery request, as permitted or required by law.
We do not sell, share, or disclose your nonpublic personal information to unaffiliated third-party marketing companies. If the representative servicing your account(s) transfers to another broker/dealer, the representative may retain copies of your personal information so that he or she can continue to serve you at the new firm. In doing so, your representative may share your information with the new firm, but is otherwise required to keep confidential the personal information obtained from you while the representative was affiliated with the former broker/dealer, and he or she may only use it to service your account(s).
If you live in an “opt-in” state, where we are required to obtain your affirmative consent to share your nonpublic personal information with unaffiliated third parties who do not currently assist us in servicing your account, we will obtain your consent before we will obtain your information. You can withdraw your consent at any time, by contacting us.
CAMG recognizes the need to prevent unauthorized access to the information we collect, including information held in electronic format. CAMG authorizes access to your nonpublic personal information only to personnel who need that information to serve you. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards regarding your nonpublic personal information to ensure that we comply with our own policy, industry practices, and federal and state regulations. If you decide to close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will adhere to the privacy policies and practices as described in this notice.
