Equity Investment Corporation’s Privacy Policy Notice

On June 22, 2000 the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted Regulation S-P, “Privacy of Consumer Financial Information,” which requires Equity Investment Corporation (EIC) and other financial services firms to disclose their privacy policy regarding nonpublic personal information of customers and consumers.  EIC values our clients, and we make it a top priority to safeguard the personal information of our clients.  We are committed to protecting your privacy and maintaining your trust and confidence.    Please take a moment to read our privacy policy summarized below.

Nonpublic Personal Information

Nonpublic personal information is broadly defined to include any information a customer provides to a financial institution that is not publicly available.   Nonpublic personal financial information includes, but is not limited to, financial and account information and information relating to services performed for or transactions entered into on behalf of our clients.

Collecting Your Information

We only collect information about you and our other clients as permitted and/or required by law to conduct our business properly and to service your accounts.  We receive this information mostly from you via applications, contracts, agreements, etc.

Protecting Your Information

We treat all of your information with the highest amount of confidentiality.  Access to such information is restricted to those principals and employees whose business function requires them to have such information.  We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your privacy and to ensure its confidentiality. 

When highly sensitive information is required to be transmitted by email, such transmittal is encrypted.  Additionally, employees must shred any information that would identify you, including, but not limited to your name, social security number, address, email address, account number, internal EIC nickname or code prior to disposal.

Sharing Information

We do not share your information with third parties.  However, there are certain occasions when a third party would have access to information about your account, and they are:

Government agencies or others as necessary to comply with the law or in a response to legal or administrative processes such as subpoenas.
   
Inquiries by your tax accountants whom you have authorized to obtain certain transactional information in conjunction with preparing your taxes.
   
Trades and other services for your account processed by your broker or your custodian.

EIC provides third parties with only the information necessary to carry out their assigned responsibilities and only for that purpose.  Third-party service providers, such as broker’s or custodians, must agree to safeguard clients’ nonpublic personal information pursuant to EIC’s Privacy Policy.

Privacy Notices

EIC provides an initial privacy notice no later than the time of establishing the client relationship.  In addition, EIC provides an annual privacy notice to clients during the continuation of the relationship.

Accurate Information

In an effort to provide our clients with superior service, we strive to keep all of our records accurate.  We take prompt action to correct errors, and we ask that you point out any inaccuracies should you discover any.

This policy for maintaining the privacy of our clients’ confidential information provided to us remains in effect even after an account is terminated.  Should you have any questions regarding our policy, please contact us:
