Privacy

Who we are

WealthUp adopted this policy with recognition that protecting the privacy and security of the nonpublic personal information we obtain about our clients is an important responsibility.  We also know that you expect us to service you in an accurate and efficient manner.  To do so, we must collect and maintain certain nonpublic personal information about you.  We want you to know what information we collect and how we use and safeguard that information.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect certain nonpublic personal information about you (such as your name, address, social security number, etc.) that you provide on applications or other forms as well as communications (electronic, telephone, written or in person) with you or your authorized representatives (such as your attorney, accountant, etc.).  We also collect information about your brokerage accounts and transactions (such as purchases, sales, account balances, inquiries, etc.).

What information we disclose

WealthUp does not disclose the nonpublic personal information we collect about our clients to anyone except: (1) in furtherance of our business relationship with clients, and then only to those persons necessary to effect the transactions and provide the services that clients authorize (such as broker-dealers, custodians, independent managers etc.); (2) to persons assessing our compliance with industry standards (e.g., professional licensing authorities, etc.); (3) our attorneys, accountants, and auditors; or (4) as otherwise provided by law.

We are permitted by law to disclose the nonpublic personal information about you to governmental agencies and other third parties in certain circumstances (such as third parties that perform administrative services on our behalf).  These third parties are prohibited to use or share the information for any other purpose.  If you decide to either terminate our services or become an inactive client, we will continue to adhere to our Privacy Policy, as may be amended from time to time.

We are required to report any suspected exploitation of vulnerable adult clients to the proper authorities under federal and state statutes.
