Privacy Policies and Procedures Baker Street Advisors, LLC
In compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Regulation S-P (Privacy of Consumer Financial Information), which was adopted to comply with Section 504 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the “G-L-B Act”), Baker Street Advisors, (collectively, “ADVISER”) discloses to clients its policies and procedures regarding the use and safekeeping of personal information.
ADVISER collects personal, private information from its clients for a number of reasons, including, determining clients’ financial goals and adequately servicing clients’ accounts from within ADVISER and with ADVISER’s service providers (i.e. – broker/dealers, custodians, etc.). ADVISER strictly forbids client information to be sold to anyone outside of ADVISER. ADVISER understands the importance of safeguarding client information and maintaining the privacy of its clients.
ADVISER does not sell client information to anyone.
Client information is only given to the third-parties under the following circumstances:
To broker/dealers to open a client’s brokerage account
To other firms as directed by clients, such as accountants, lawyers, etc.
To specified family members
To regulators, when required by law
Personal information is collected from clients at the inception of their accounts, primarily to determine accounts’ investment objectives and financial goals.
Access to clients’ personal information is restricted to individuals within ADVISER that require the information in the ordinary course of servicing clients’ accounts. Client information is used only for business purposes. ADVISER utilizes physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect clients’ information. Such safeguards are detailed further in ADVISER’s
Policies and Procedures.
While ADVISER strives to update changing client information on a contemporaneous basis, we ask clients to monitor any information provided to them by ADVISER for errors.
At times, client information may be reviewed by ADVISER’s outside service providers (i.e. – accountants, lawyers, consultants, etc.). ADVISER will review the entities’ privacy policies to ensure that clients’ information is not misappropriated or used in a manner that is contrary to ADVISER’s privacy policies.
In the event that these policies change, ADVISER will provide its clients with a sufficient amount of time to opt out of any disclosure provisions. Nevertheless, ADVISER shall provide a copy of its annual privacy notice to clients upon inception of the relationship. In addition, each of ADVISER’s active clients shall be provided with a copy of the privacy notice within 90 days following the close of ADVISER’s fiscal year.
