We know you may be concerned about what we do with the information you provide us. You have our assurance that we are committed to safeguarding your data and maintaining your privacy online and we do not sell your information to third parties, unless we have your prior written consent or are required by law to provide such information. We may, however, share selected information under certain conditions as part of normal business operations and/or in respect to servicing your account, such as executing transactions you have placed, and as part of normal legal/regulatory purposes required by the Internal Revenue Service, Securities and Exchange Commission, and other regulatory and government entities. If applicable, we have ensured that third parties with whom we contract to assist us in providing services for your account have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of your data. Such service providers will only have access to your data as is necessary and are prohibited from any unlawful use of your data.
