Private Wealth Advisors has adopted this policy with recognition that protecting the privacy and security of the personal information we obtain about our customers is an important responsibility. We also know that you expect us to service you in an accurate and efficient manner. To do so, we must collect and maintain certain personal information about you. We want you to know what information we collect and how we use and safeguard that information.
What Information We Collect
We collect certain nonpublic personal identifying information about you (such as your name, address, social security number, etc.) from information that you provide on applications or other forms as well as communications (electronic, telephone, written or in person) with you or your authorized representatives (such as your attorney, accountant, etc.). We also collect information about your brokerage accounts and transactions (such as purchases, sales, account balances, inquiries, etc.).
What Information We Disclose
We do not disclose the nonpublic personal information we collect about our customers to anyone except: (i) in furtherance of our business relationship with them and then only to those persons necessary to effect the transactions and provide the services that they authorize (such as brokerdealers, custodians, independent managers etc.); (ii) to persons assessing our compliance with industry standards (e.g., professional licensing authorities, etc.); (iii) our attorneys, accountants, and auditors; or (iv) as otherwise provided by law.
Security of Your Information
We restrict access to your nonpublic personal information to those employees who need to know that information to service your account. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable federal or state standards to protect your nonpublic personal information.
Our policy about obtaining and disclosing information may change from time to time. We will provide you notice of any material change to this policy before we implement the change.
Private Wealth Advisors respects your privacy, and we are committed to protecting your privacy.
If you visit our Website (the “Site”) and/or choose to create an account with us, we have designed our system to protect your privacy. Our system will be able to ascertain your geographic location from your IP address, but we do not collect e-mail addresses or track the sites that you access while you use our services unless
Two types of information may be collected when you visit our Site:
Personal information, (such as name, address, telephone number, e‑mail address, credit card numbers, or credit information) which is only collected by us if you voluntarily submit it to us. For example, if you voluntarily create an account with us on our Site or you place an order with us, we will receive the account information that you submit so that we may better ensure that you are receiving the information, account access or products that you requested;
Aggregate information is automatically collected non-identifying statistics, (such as information about how many visitors log on to the Site). Our servers will log IP addresses and collect third‑party sites (and information from these sites) from your use of the Site. We use this information to measure the use of our Site, to improve the content of our Site, and to provide our users with the best possible services.
In sum, you can visit our Site without telling us who you are or revealing personal information about yourself. However, you can, if you choose, participate in additional secured applications. For access to these applications, you are required to create an account with us. This form includes information such as name and e-mail address. We use this information to enhance our services, to better meet the needs and preferences of our customers, to fulfill orders, to allow you to access account information and to enhance the security of our Site. If you create an account with us, we may also from time to time, send you information about system changes or account information that we think may be of interest.

In order to use all of the features of the Site and/or access all of the services, we recommend that you accept cookies.
We may provide links to third-party external sites. The inclusion of any link does not imply our endorsement of the external site company, its Website or Websites, or the products and services it promotes or sells.
