|Your Privacy is Important to Us
You provide important information about yourself to a variety of businesses and organizations. The same is true when you do business with Forge Trust. You are asked to provide us with certain personal information that helps us serve you better and complete your transactions more effectively.
We work diligently to safeguard the information you provide us. In fact, we have developed the following policies to ensure your confidentiality and to maintain your confidence in our institution. These policies detail the strict standards we have in place. For this reason, we ask you to please read the following information carefully. In it, we will tell you the sources for non-public personal information we collect on our customers, and what measures we take to secure that information.
“We”, “our”, and “us”, when used in this notice, mean Forge Trust. The words “you” and “your” mean account customers who have continuing relationships with us in self-directed IRA accounts where we act as custodian or trustee. Non-public personal information means information about you that we collect in connection with providing a financial product or service to you.
Non-public personal information does not include information that is available from public sources, such as telephone directories or government records.
An affiliate is a company we own or control, a company that owns or controls us, or a company that is owned or controlled by the same company that owns or controls us. Ownership does not mean complete ownership, but means owning enough to have control.
A non-affiliated third party is a company that is not an affiliate of ours.
