Hampton’s Commitment to Your Privacy
Your Informed Consent
Protecting our clients’ privacy is important to us. The purpose of this notice is to explain the information we collect about our clients, how we use it, and to state our commitment to inform you, and to respond to any questions you may have. Clients who have read this privacy notice, and have expressed no objections, and have completed the New Account Application, are deemed to have agreed with our privacy policies as outlined below.
Information We Disclose
We do not sell any information about our clients. Only upon our client’s specific request will information such as name, income, and assets be shared with our affiliates. From time to time and when we deem it necessary to facilitate the handling of our relationship with our clients, we will share appropriate information with third parties as permitted by law. We only share information that is required for third parties to perform their job. For example, we may disclose information to third parties such as data processing providers for statement mailing and check printing, and securities broker dealers when using them to execute orders; to government entities, and Self Regulatory organizations in the investment industry, in response to obligatory provision of information, and as otherwise requested by our clients.
Security of Information
We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to guard our clients’ personal information. We have strict internal policies against unauthorized use or disclosure of client information. Our clients’ information is accessible only to employees who need it to conduct our clients’ financial affairs or provide services to them. Our employees, and our account management practices, are governed by extensive regulatory procedures, and by Hampton internal procedures. Hampton staff are reminded on a regular basis of their obligations with regard to the confidentiality of client information through employee training, and by operating procedures.
Retention of Personal Information
Hampton may retain your personal information on file after you cease to be a client for as long as we require such information, or as long as is mandated by regulatory requirements.
We welcome your review and correction of personal information
Because accurate and updated personal information is key to providing financial services, we urge you to periodically review and correct at any time information you have provided to Hampton. We welcome any questions you may have about the purpose and use of personal information.
