Our Policies on Collecting & Protecting Your Information

We recognize that protecting the information our clients provide to us is extremely important, and we take this responsibility very seriously. Please read the description below to better understand how we collect and utilize your business and personal information.

CrowdFund Connect is providing this notice to explain our information collection practices and other important information.

Information We Collect

We collect nonpublic personal information about you from the following sources:

Information we receive about you on applications and other forms including subscription documents, questionnaires and online registration and contact forms. This information may include your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, income and other financial data, investment experience, etc.

Information we receive about you from third parties such as referring brokers or advisers, managers, product sponsors and clearing firms, and/or their service providers. These parties may include affiliates of CrowdFund Connect.

How Data Is Collected

Some of the information we receive is through the registration process. When you agree to become a CrowdFund Connect member we ask you to provide this personal information. Only minimal fields are required for membership approval. Other fields are optional and provided by you to assist you in your networking efforts.

Additionally, we use cookies and other technologies to recognize you and uniquely identify your browser. Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. We also automatically receive such information as IP address, your type of browser and ISP.

Disclosure of Your Information

The information we collect is used for internal review to improve the content of our website, to conduct research and analysis to help improve your experience, to ensure the technical functionality of our network, and to create and develop new ideas and services for our members.

Your e-mail address will not be sold for use by any third party agencies, and is solely for the use of CrowdFund Connect e-mails. If you do not want to receive e-mail from us in the future, please let us know by sending us an e-mail to this address: privacy@crowdfundconnect.com.

From time to time, we may use personal information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy notice. In such event, we will post the policy changes to our Web site to notify you of these changes and we will use for these new purposes only data collected from the time of the policy change forward. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check back at our Web site periodically.

We may disclose and use personally identifiable and other information in special circumstances where it is necessary to enforce our terms and conditions, policies and agreements, to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, and to protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of CrowdFund Connect. We may also disclose and use personally identifiable and other information when we, in good faith, believe that the law requires us to do so.

Confidentiality and Security

We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees and authorized third parties who need to know that information to assist us in providing services to you or your business. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to guard your nonpublic information.

We reserve the right to revise or update this policy at any time.
