BroadOak Capital Partners is required to disclose its policy for keeping personal information on individual clients under SEC guidelines. These guidelines are oriented toward individual consumer information and the dissemination or sale of that information to third parties. We generally do not possess or collect individual financial information, but we are committed to keeping any personal information collected from our potential, current and former customers and investors confidential and secure. Our policy is to not sell this information to any outside parties.
We collect and keep only information that is necessary for us to provide services requested by you and to administer your business with us. We may collect nonpublic personal information as a result of transactions with us, our affiliates or others. This could include information received as part of a private placement of securities, information received as part of our merger or acquisition work, or another reason.
We only share your nonpublic personal information with non-affiliated companies or individuals as directed by you, permitted by law, to complete due diligence, comply with legal or regulatory requirements. In the normal course of our business, we may disclose information we collect about you to companies or individuals that contract with us to perform servicing functions such as:
- Record keeping
- Computer related services
- Good faith disclosure to regulators who have regulatory authority over our firm
- Companies we hire to provide support services are not allowed to use your personal information for their own purposes and are contractually obligated to maintain strict confidentiality. We limit their use of your personal information to the performance of the specific service we have requested.
We do not provide your personally identifiable information to mailing list vendors or solicitors for any purpose.
When we provide personal information to a service provider, we require these providers to agree to safeguard your information, to use the information only for the intended purpose, and to abide by applicable law.
Employee Access to Information
Only employees with a valid business reason have access to your personal information. These employees are educated on the importance of maintaining the confidentiality and security of this information. They are required to abide by our information handling practices.
