We collect and use Information for business purposes with respect to our business relationships involving you. These business purposes include evaluating a request for products or services, administering our products or services, and processing transactions requested by you. We may also use Information to offer you other products or services we provide.
We get most Information directly from you. The Information that you give us when applying for our products or services generally provides the information we need. If we need to verify Information or need additional Information, we may obtain Information from third parties. Information collected may relate to your finances, employment, avocations or other personal characteristics as well as transactions with us or with others.
We treat Information in a confidential manner. Our employees, registered representatives and investment adviser representatives acting on our behalf are required to protect confidentiality of Information. These representatives may access Information only when there is an appropriate reason to do so, such as to administer or offer our products or services. We also may maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect Information; these safeguards comply with all applicable laws. Employees, registered representatives and investment adviser representatives are required to comply without established policies.
We may disclose any Information when we believe it necessary for the conduct or our business, or where disclosure is required by law. For example, Information may be disclosed to others to enable them to provide business services for us such as, performing general administrative activities for us and assisting us in processing a transaction requested by you. Information may also be disclosed for audit or research purposes; or to law enforcement and regulatory agencies, for example, to help us prevent fraud. Information may be disclosed to others that are outside AJF, such as companies that process data for us or companies that provide general administrative services for us. We make other disclosures of Information as permitted by law.
Information may also be shared with our affiliates so that they may offer you their products or services. We may also provide Information: (i) to certain non-affiliates, such as marketing companies, to assist us in offering our products and services to you, and (ii) to nonaffiliated financial services companies with which we have a joint marketing agreement, for example, an agreement with another broker-dealer or registered investment adviser to enable us to offer you certain of its products or services. We do not make any other disclosures of Information to other companies who may want to sell their products or services to you. For example, we will not sell your name to a catalogue company. We may disclose any Information, other than a consumer report or health Information, for the purposes described in this paragraph.
Generally, upon your written request, we will make available Information for your review. Information collected in connection with, or in anticipation of, any claim or legal proceeding will not be made available. If you notify us that the Information is incorrect, we will review it. If we agree, we will correct our records. If we do not agree, you may submit a short statement of dispute, which we will include in any future disclosure Information.
