Information We Collect
Protecting your nonpublic personal information is an important priority for HC.
The nature of HC 's business requires that we obtain your personal information
so that we may work as your Investment Adviser. Therefore, we collect
information about you from the Advisory Agreement, account applications
and other forms you submit to us for the management of your account. We may
also collect your information from the transactional activity in your account
and from the experiences you have with products and services we provide.
Finally, we may obtain additional personal information from other interactions
or communications that you have with HC.
Our Disclosure Policies
HC does not disclose your information to anyone, except as permitted by
law and as is deemed necessary by HC to provide our services to your account.
This may include sharing your information with non-affiliated companies that
perform support services for your account or process your transactions with us.
In addition, we may provide your personal information to governmental or
other entities to comply with applicable laws and regulations. Finally, we
will release information about you if you direct us to do so.
Confidentiality and Security
We have always considered the protection of sensitive information to be a
sound business practice and a foundation of customer trust. We protect the
information we collect about you by maintaining physical, electronic and
procedural safeguards that meet or exceed applicable legal requirements.
In addition, we restrict access to information about you to those employees
and contractors who provide necessary services for your account.
For former clients, HC will treat your personal information just as we treat
the personal information of our current clients.
HC will continue to keep you informed of its privacy policies by providing
you with a Privacy Notice annually. In addition, if any substantial changes occur in the way we collect, use or disseminate your personal information, we will notify you promptly.
Please contact HC if you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or if
you would like to discuss it in greater detail.
