The following information is designed to help you understand Formation’s information collection practices.
Formation collects non-public personally identifiable information (“PII”) about you as described in this section.
Formation may collect non-public information about you from the following sources: (1) information that we receive about you on applications, agreements, or other forms; (2) information that you give us orally; (3) information about your transactions with us or our affiliates; (4) information that you submit to us in written correspondence, including emails and other electronic communications. Information from these sources generally includes, but is not limited to, information on your personal background, financial situation, financial transactions and account numbers.
We generally record certain usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to this Website. This information may include the Internet browser you are using and your Internet Protocol (IP) address. If we use this data at all it will be on an aggregate basis, and we will not disclose to third parties any information that could be used to identify you personally.
Our Website may also use various technologies to collect non-PII when someone visits our Website. For example, as you browse our Website, we may collect information about your visit, but not about you personally. We may monitor statistics such as the number of people that visit our Website, and from which domain our visitors come. We also may use outsourcing programs to assist us in analyzing this data to better tailor our websites and services.
In the course of providing our services and in order to provide our services, we may disclose PII to non-affiliated companies that perform services for us (“Service Providers”), such as companies that provide transaction processing, or performance reports and statements for assets under management. These Service Providers, however, act on our behalf and are contractually obligated to keep the information we provide them confidential and to use the information only for the purposes authorized.
To protect personal information for you from unauthorized access or use, we permit access only to Formation employees and our Service Providers’ employees who have a need to know. In addition, we have implemented, and we maintain, technical, administrative, personnel and physical security safeguards.
