CapFinancial Partners, LLC (“CAPTRUST”) recognizes that its clients have an expectation that CAPTRUST and its affiliates will maintain the confidentiality of clients’ nonpublic personal information. Consequently, CAPTRUST has adopted this privacy policy concerning information obtained during the servicing of client’s account(s).

Nonpublic information

Nonpublic information obtained by CAPTRUST for purposes of providing services hereunder will not be furnished to third parties for any other purpose other than in furtherance of the services to be provided hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, CAPTRUST may disclose nonpublic information (i) to the extent such disclosure is required by court order or by a valid order of a governmental body governmental or quasi-governmental agency (such as FINRA) (ii) prior or after the time of disclosure such information becomes part of the public knowledge or literature, not as a result of any inaction or action of CAPTRUST, (iii) reasonably necessary for CAPTRUST to enforce its legal rights in any dispute with that client; or (iv) is approved by Client, in writing, for release. CAPTRUST does not disclose nonpublic personal information about its clients to any party except as permitted by law.

Sources of Personal Information 

We collect personal information about you from meetings with you and on applications or other forms you have submitted to CAPTRUST, as well as information about your investments or transactions with us or others (such as third-party service providers or fund companies) from other sources.

How CAPTRUST Protects the Confidentiality of Clients’ Nonpublic Personal Information

CAPTRUST does not sell or trade clients’ information with nonaffiliated companies. When information is provided to third party service providers, safeguards are in place to assure that information is used only for the purpose it is provided. CAPTRUST maintains its records on secured computers. Prospective employees are screened for criminal convictions. Once hired, employees are made aware of CAPTRUST’s privacy policy and of the confidential nature of the information they handle. Employees are limited to accessing only that customer information that is necessary to perform their job functions.

To Whom This Policy Applies

This notice applies to all our clients who enter into an advisory services agreement with us. Even if you are no longer a client, our privacy policy will continue to apply to you.

Access to and Correction of Information

Upon the written request of clients, we will make available for their review any file we may maintain for their personal Information; provided, however, that any information collected in connection with, or in anticipation of, any claim or legal proceeding will not be made available. If clients notify us that any Information is incorrect, we will review it. If we agree, we will correct our records.  If we do not agree, clients may submit a short statement of dispute, which we will include in any future disclosure of the disputed Information.

Further Information  

We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time. The examples contained within this privacy policy are illustrations and are not intended to be exclusive. This policy attempts to comply with federal and state regulations regarding privacy. Clients may have additional rights under other foreign or domestic laws that may apply to them.

“Opt Out” Provision

Since CAPTRUST does not sell or share any personal information an “opt out” provision would not be applicable to this privacy policy. Clients may call (800) 216-0645 to request further information regarding this policy.

Your Rights and Choices

The CCPA provides consumers (California residents) with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your CCPA rights and explains how to exercise those rights.

Access to Specific Information and Data Portability Rights

You have the right to request that we disclose certain information to you about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion 0), we will disclose to you:

  • The categories of personal information we collected about you.
  • The categories of sources for the personal information we collected about you.
  • Our business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling that personal information.
  • The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information.
  • The specific pieces of personal information we collected about you (also called a data portability request).
  • If we sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose, two separate lists disclosing:
    • sales, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient purchased; and
    • disclosures for a business purpose, identifying the personal information categories that each category of recipient obtained.

We do not provide these access and data portability rights for B2B personal information.

Deletion Request Rights

You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request (see Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion 0), we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.

We may deny your deletion request if retaining the information is necessary for us or our service provider(s) to:

  1. Complete the transaction for which we collected the personal information, provide a good or service that you requested, take actions reasonably anticipated within the context of our ongoing business relationship with you, fulfill the terms of a written warranty or product recall conducted in accordance with federal law, or otherwise perform our contract with you.
  2. Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity, or prosecute those responsible for such activities.
  3. Debug products to identify and repair errors that impair existing intended functionality.
  4. Exercise free speech, ensure the right of another consumer to exercise their free speech rights, or exercise another right provided for by law.
  5. Comply with the California Electronic Communications Privacy Act (Cal. Penal Code § 1546 et. seq.).
  6. Engage in public or peer-reviewed scientific, historical, or statistical research in the public interest that adheres to all other applicable ethics and privacy laws, when the information’s deletion may likely render impossible or seriously impair the research’s achievement, if you previously provided informed consent.
  7. Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us.
  8. Comply with a legal obligation.
  9. Make other internal and lawful uses of that information that are compatible with the context in which you provided it.

We do not provide these deletion rights for B2B personal information.

Exercising Access, Data Portability, and Deletion Rights

To exercise the access, data portability, and deletion rights described above, please submit a verifiable consumer request to us by either:

  • Calling us at (800) 216-0645
  • Emailing us at compliance@captrust.com

Only you, or someone legally authorized to act on your behalf, may make a verifiable consumer request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.

You may only make a verifiable consumer request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period. The verifiable consumer request must:

  • Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative.

    For a request to know the categories of personal information collected: In order for us to be able to verify the identity of the consumer making this type of request to a reasonable degree of certainty, we must match at least two data points provided by the consumer with data points maintained by the business, which the business has determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying the consumer.

    For a request to know specific pieces of personal information:  In order for us to verify the identity of consumer making this type of request to a reasonably high degree of certainty, we must match at least three pieces of personal information provided by the consumer with personal information maintained by the us and that we have determined to be reliable for the purpose of verifying the consumer when taken together. This type of request has a “higher bar” for verification and will also require a signed declaration under penalty of perjury that the requestor is the consumer whose personal information is the subject of the request.
  • Describe your request with sufficient detail that allows us to properly understand, evaluate, and respond to it.

We cannot respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you.

Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us.

We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.

Response Timing and Format

We endeavor to respond to a verifiable consumer request within forty-five (45) days of its receipt. If we require more time (up to 45 additional days), we will inform you of the reason and extension period in writing.

We will deliver our written response by mail or electronically, at your option.

Any disclosures we provide will only cover the 12-month period preceding the verifiable consumer request’s receipt. The response we provide will also explain the reasons we cannot comply with a request, if applicable. For data portability requests, we will select a format to provide your personal information that is readily useable and should allow you to transmit the information from one entity to another entity without hindrance, in a secure electronic format.

We do not charge a fee to process or respond to your verifiable consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will tell you why we made that decision and provide you with a cost estimate before completing your request.

Non-Discrimination

We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights. Unless permitted by the CCPA, we will not:

  • Deny you goods or services.
  • Charge you different prices or rates for goods or services, including through granting discounts or other benefits, or imposing penalties.
  • Provide you a different level or quality of goods or services.
  • Suggest that you may receive a different price or rate for goods or services or a different level or quality of goods or services.

We reserve the right to amend this privacy notice at our discretion and at any time. When we make changes to this privacy notice, we will post the updated notice on the Website and update the notice’s effective date. If you are a California client, we will deliver an updated privacy notice annually. Your continued use of our Website following the posting of changes or continuation  as a client after receipt of a copy of the privacy notice constitutes your acceptance of such changes.
