How eOption Manages Your Information
WHERE DOES EOPTION OBTAIN THE INFORMATION?
The information that we have comes directly from you. This includes such information as your name, address and Social Security number that you provided on applications, agreements or other forms. In addition, we maintain records of each of your transactions and holdings processed by us.
We also may obtain information about you, such as your credit history or other facts relating to creditworthiness, from a consumer-reporting agency.
Our site’s registration form requires users to give us contact information (like their name and e-mail address). We use customer contact information from the registration form to send the user information about our company. The customer’s contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. Users may opt-out of receiving future mailings; see the choice/opt-out section below.
We use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, and to administer our Web site. eOption provides investment brokerage services by means of its own internal operation and those of its clearing firm and other unaffiliated third party providers such as mutual funds and variable product sponsors. eOption acts as an introducing broker to its clearing firm, which in turn processes the transactions and acts as the account custodian. All of the above named parties receive and maintain information about you that is related to and necessary for processing investments in your account.
CONFIDENTIALITY AND SECURITY (Restricted Access)
This site has security measures in place to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. The Trading Area uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) technology to provide a secure environment for all transactions. If you do not have an up-to-date browser that supports SSL, you should upgrade today. We restrict access to information about you to those employees and authorized agents who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to maintain the confidentiality of your information.
TO WHOM DOES EOPTION DISCLOSE THE INFORMATION?
eOption does not sell your nonpublic personal information. We provide information about current or former clients from the sources described above to parties outside of this firm only as described below:
Where required by law or regulation. Examples include responses to a subpoena, court order or regulatory demand. As authorized by you, you may direct us, for example, to send account statements or other account information to a third party. As otherwise authorized or permitted by law. For example, the law permits us to respond to a request for information about you from a consumer-reporting agency.
This site may supplement the information that you provide when submitting an application for an account with information that is received from third parties.
