Privacy Policy

 

                             PRIVACY POLICY STATEMENT

 

At Strategic Wealth Advisors we are committed to safeguarding the confidential information of our clients.  We hold all personal information provided to our firm in the strictest confidence.  These records include all personal information that we collect from you in connection with any of the Investment Advisory services provided by our firm. We will not share personal information about our clients with other companies unless we need to share the information in order to provide a product or service a client has requested. Unless we tell clients otherwise, these other companies do not have the right to use clients’ personal information obtained from our firm in any manner beyond what is required to provide a client’s requested product or service.

 

Our firm limits the collection of personal information to what is necessary to administer our business and to deliver our products and services to our clients. It is usually necessary in the conduct of our business that we share information with our affiliates. We do reserve the right to disclose or report personal information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required under law, to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, to perform necessary credit checks or collect or report debts owed to us, to protect our rights or property, or upon reasonable request by the sponsor or provider of a product in which you have chosen to invest. Listed below is the information we do collect and how we use that information:

Forms you fill out to interact with our company such as:


  • new account forms
  • agreements and contracts
  • questionnaires and miscellaneous forms



 


These forms may request personal information such as your e-mail address, telephone number, mailing address, social security number, employment information, investment objectives and financial situation, and account numbers.


How we use this information


We use your personal information for the purpose of conducting business with you. At no time do we sell your information or share it unless it is necessary to conduct business with you. On occasion, our clients' professional providers such as accountants, attorneys, etc. may request non-public information about them. We will upon request and with client authorization supply providers with such information.


Protection of Client Information


Strategic Wealth Advisors’ policies require that employees with access to confidential client information may not use or disclose the information except for business use.  Access to client information is available to employees on a "need-to-know" basis only and is restricted to certain employees, representatives and agents with a business reason for access to such information.  Employees are required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement annually. We safeguard information according to established security standards and procedures and train our employees and representatives to understand and comply with these protections.


Changes to Firm Privacy Policies


From time to time Strategic Wealth Advisors may update its privacy policies. All new clients will receive the firm’s most current private policy upon entering into an agreement or opening an account with the firm. All clients will be provided with the firm’s most current privacy policies at least annually.
