Straits Financial LLC believes in the importance of your privacy. And in order to preserve the integrity of the information you provide to us in opening an account with Straits or one of its affiliates, including offices of Introducing Brokers (collectively “Straits”) who maintain clearing relationships with us, we want you to understand how we work to protect your privacy.
Straits restricts access to personal information about its customers to only those personnel and affiliates who must have the information in order to provide the services you are seeking. In some cases, unaffiliated third parties will be supplied with personal information because their access to such information is permitted or required by law and they need to know such information in order to assist Straits in providing the products and services you receive from us. Lastly, information may be shared with unaffiliated third parties whose access to such information is necessary in order for Straits to engage in joint marketing efforts with such third parties.
In providing you with the financial services you seek, Straits may collect the following types of nonpublic personal information from you: any information you may have included on your account application, including your name, address, social security number, any financial information about you; and, information regarding your trading or credit histories.
Rest assured that Straits will not sell your personal information to any third parties. Your personal information will remain subject to the strictest confidentiality protections. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that are designed to protect your non-public information.
To the extent that we use unaffiliated third parties for electronic services, such providers will be subject to strict contractual requirements to maintain the confidentiality of any customer information they may obtain in connection with their services. Furthermore, we will disclose only the information necessary to provide such services.
In certain instances, legal authorities or regulatory agencies may require that we disclose certain customer information, which we will have the obligation to provide. In addition, we may be forced to disclose information to enforce our legal rights, or in order to perform credit checks or collect debts.
However, you can be confident that Straits, its affiliates, and introducing brokers will be held to the highest standards of security in protecting your privacy.
