Our Commitment to Client Confidentiality
As a client of Amling Investments LLC (“us”), you have entrusted to our care your personal and financial information. We recognize that your relationship with us is based on trust and that you expect us to act responsibly and in your best interests. Because your personal and financial information is your private information, we hold ourselves to the highest standards in its safekeeping and use.
This means, most importantly, that we do not sell client information – whether it is your personal information or the fact that you are a client – to anyone.
The Information We Collect About You
You provide personal information to us when you become a client. You also provide personal information when you request a transaction that involves us.
In addition to personal information you provide to us, we may receive information about you that you authorize third parties to provide to us. We also may obtain personal information from third parties in order to verify your identity, prevent fraud, or to help us identify products and services that may benefit you.
Personal information collected from any source may include your name and address, social security number or taxpayer identification number, assets, income, account balance, investment activity and accounts at other institutions.
How We Handle Your Personal Information
We do not sell information about current or former clients or their accounts to third parties. Nor do we share such information, except when needed to complete transactions at your request or to make you aware of related financial products and services that we offer. Here are the details:
1. In order to complete certain transactions or account changes that you direct, it may be necessary to provide identifying information to companies, individuals, or groups that are not affiliated with us. For example, if you ask to transfer assets from one financial institution to another, we will need to provide certain information about you to the relevant company to complete the transaction.
2. In certain instances, we may contract with nonaffiliated companies to perform services for us. Where necessary, we will disclose information we have about you to these third parties. In all such cases, we provide the third party with only the information necessary to carry out its assigned responsibilities and only for that purpose. And, we require these third parties to treat your private information with the same high degree of confidentiality that we do.
3. Finally, we will release information about you if you direct us to do so, if we are compelled by law to do so, or in other legally limited circumstances (for example, to prevent fraud).
How We Safeguard Your Personal Information
We restrict access to information about you to those employees who need to know the information in order to perform their jobs, such as servicing your accounts or notifying you of new products and services. To protect your personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in keeping with industry standards and practices, and we review and adjust these safeguards regularly in response to advances in technology.
What You Can Do
For your protection, we recommend that you do not provide your account information, user name, or password to anyone. If you become aware of any suspicious activity relating to your account, please contact us immediately.
