Privacy & Disclosures
Our Privacy Commitment to You...
ARS Private Wealth and its family of affiliated companies are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of all clients. We want you to understand how we protect your privacy when we collect and use personal information in the course of business, as well as the measures we take to safeguard your information. Keeping customer information secure and private is a priority at ARS Private Wealth.
Collecting Non-Public Personal Information
While providing service to you, we collect non-public personal information from the following sources:
▪ LPL transactions and affiliate companies including those that work closely with us to provide you with diverse financial products and services—i.e., your account balance, payment history, parties to transactions, types, and amounts of investments, transactions, and credit card usage.
▪ Account applications and other standard forms—i.e., name, address, Social Security number, assets, types, and amounts of investments, transactions, and income.
▪ Consumer reporting agencies—i.e., your creditworthiness and credit history.
▪ Information obtained when verifying applications or other forms —this may be obtained from your current or past employers or from other institutions where you conduct financial transactions.
Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Non-Public Personal Information
Keeping your information secure is one of our most important responsibilities. We restrict access to your non-public personal information to those employees and agents who are providing products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your non-public personal information.
We may occasionally use a “cookie” in order to provide better service to you, to facilitate your use of our website, to track usage of the website and to address security hazards. (A cookie is a small piece of information that a website stores on a personal computer and can be retrieved later.)
Disclosing Non-Public Personal Information to Non-Affiliated Third Parties
We do not sell, share or disclose your non-public personal information to non-affiliated third-party marketing companies.
We may disclose all of the information we collect, as described above in the “Collecting Non-Public Personal Information” section to companies that perform marketing or other services on our behalf, or to other financial institutions with whom we have joint marketing agreements. All of these companies are contractually obligated to keep the information that we provide confidentially and use the information only for the services required and as allowed by applicable law or regulation, and are not permitted to share or use the information for any other purpose. We may disclose non-public personal information about you in connection with the transfer of your account to another financial institution at your request or the request of ARS Private Wealth. If you do not want ARS Private Wealth to disclose your non-public personal information with your representative’s new financial institution, please contact us as directed below.
We may also disclose non-public personal information as permitted or required by law. These disclosures typically include information to process transactions on your behalf, to conduct our operations, to follow your instructions as you authorize, or to protect the security of our financial records.
