As a client of Clark Capital, you have entrusted your personal information and financial data to our care. Because this is your private information and data, we exercise extreme care in how we handle it. We are required by federal law to advise you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. You have the right to limit some but not all sharing of personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
The Types of Personal Information We Collect
The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us. This information can include, among other things:
- Your name and address
- Social Security number
- Date of birth
- Assets and income
- Account balances
We may collect your personal information, for example, when you enter into an investment advisory agreement, open an account with a custodian, or make deposits or withdrawals from your account.
Why We May Need to Share Your Personal Information
Like all financial companies, we need to share your personal information with third parties to run our everyday business and to provide you services such as processing transactions and maintaining your account. The third parties that we share your personal information with (such as financial service companies, sub-advisers, consultants and auditors) are contractually prohibited from disclosing or using your personal information for any purpose other than providing such services, and are required to maintain appropriate security measures for protecting your personal information. We may also share your personal information as required by law, such as responding to court orders and legal investigations. We do not disclose your personal information to anyone for marketing purposes.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
Within Clark Capital, we restrict access to information about you to those employees who need to know the information to service your account. To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable laws and industry standards and practices.
When You Can Limit Sharing
Federal law gives you the right to limit only: (1) sharing for affiliates’ everyday business purposes, (2) sharing with affiliates to use your information to market to you, and (3) sharing with non-affiliates to use your information to market to you.
We do not share your information in any of these ways. State laws and individual companies may give you additional rights to limit sharing.
When you are no longer our customer, we continue to share your information only as described in this notice.
Affiliates: Companies related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and non- financial companies. We do not share with affiliates.
Non-affiliates: Companies not related by common ownership or control. They can be financial and nonfinancial companies. We do not share with non-affiliates except as describe in this notice.
Joint Marketing: A formal agreement between non-affiliated financial companies that together market financial products or services to you. We do not engage in joint marketing.
