CF Global Trading, L.L.C. and its Affiliates (collectively "CF Global" or "we") understand that our clients' privacy is important and we are committed to maintaining their confidentiality. The following disclosure explains our policy regarding non-public information and the process we have in place to protect our clients' privacy and the confidential information we receive from our clients.
We collect non-public information about clients and counterparties from various sources ("Personal Data"), which include the following:
- Information we receive on applications and other forms (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, Social Security Number, assets and income);
- Information about our clients' financial transactions with us or others; and
- Information that we received from non-affiliated third parties (such as credit rating agencies) or other entities who may service our clients' accounts from time to time.
We may use our clients' information in order to operate our business in a prudent manner in accordance with industry standards and applicable law, which may include servicing and maintaining accounts and transactions, offering a broad range of services and products, verifying income and assets, responding to inquiries and requests, preventing fraud, monitoring and archiving communications and verifying our clients' identity in accordance with the USA PATRIOT Act.
We do not disclose any non-public information to any non-affiliated third parties other than as permitted by law. We may disclose or share non-public information about our clients to our affiliates or third parties involved in servicing our clients' accounts. We do not otherwise provide information about our clients to outside firms, organizations or individuals except to our attorneys, accountants and auditors and as permitted by law. We will, however, release information about our client if directed to do so by such client or if compelled or required to do so by law or self-regulatory organization ("SRO") regulations.
We restrict access to our clients' information to those employees who need to know such information to provide products or services to our clients. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard and protect all clients' information from unauthorized access, accidental or intentional manipulation, loss and destruction. Employees who violate these policies are subject to disciplinary action, including termination. Our clients' information is secure and is not shared with a third party unless such third party is involved in servicing our clients' relationship with CF Global or as required, in limited situations, by law or SRO regulations.
