Information Collected by CMS
The categories of nonpublic personal information which CMS shall collect include:
- information provided by the customer when opening an account, or to process a transaction, such as name, address, assets, bank information, prior trading experience, etc.;
- information used to verify the identity of the customer, including copies of government issued identification materials such as passports, drivers licenses, and credit reports;
- information resulting from transactions between the customer and CMS or an affiliate of CMS, such as withdrawal and deposit forms;
- information derived from customer’s navigation and usage of CMS’s website and online platforms, including account trading statements;
Usage of Personal Information
CMS may use the information collected from you to verify your identity and contact information. CMS may also use this information to establish and setup your trading or demo account, issue an account number and a secure password, maintain your account activity, and contact you with account information.
Should you close your account, CMS will retain your information, but only use it to comply with regulatory requirements and to periodically contact you to offer you the opportunity to reactivate your account or participate in other valuable offers.
Information Disclosed by CMS and To Whom CMS Discloses the Information
CMS may share information with affiliates if the information is required to provide the product or service you have requested or to provide you the opportunity to participate in the products or services our affiliates offer.
Except for the limited circumstances described below or as otherwise permitted by law, CMS does not share nonpublic personal information about our current or former customers with any third parties.
If you do not wish to have CMS share nonpublic personal information with non-affiliated third parties pursuant to any of the provisions listed above, please opt out of those provisions by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or calling CMS at 646-307-4449. Opting out will apply for all financial products or services you obtain through CMS. Please note that you cannot opt out of any provisions if sharing of the information is required by law. Further, please note that an opt-out election must be made for each separate account you hold at CMS or with any CMS affiliates.
Confidentiality and Security Procedures
Only those staff members for whom the information is necessary to complete a given transaction shall possess the authority to access the information. CMS, its personnel, and its affiliates shall strictly adhere to security practices and procedures to ensure the confidentiality of its customers’ information.
CMS maintains numerous safeguards that comply with Federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information including the use of encryption technology, firewalls and authentication systems (usernames and passwords).
CMS will continue to protect the privacy of former customers’ nonpublic personal information in the same manner as when they were customers. Unlike current customers, however, former customers will not receive annual privacy notices.
