Privacy Policy

Our Promise to You

Keystone Global Partners, LLC, understands that protecting your financial privacy is just as important as protecting your financial assets. All employees of Keystone are subject to a company code of ethics and other policies that require maintaining the confidentiality of customer information. We are committed to the responsible use of information in order to provide you with the services that you want and to help you achieve your financial goals. This statement of our privacy policy is intended to help you understand the ways in which we gather, use and protect your financial information.

This Privacy Policy describes the way that we treat nonpublic personal information that we may obtain from our customers or from consumers generally. This Privacy Policy applies to current clients as well as prospective and former clients for as long as the information is retained. We continually review our policies and practices to ensure the safety of our customer information.

Collection of Nonpublic Personal Information

We collect information to provide investment management services to you, to protect you from fraud and to make available products and services that may be of interest to you. We collect nonpublic personal ("confidential") information about you from the following sources:

  • Information received from you in order to set up and maintain your Account in connection with providing advisory services, such as your name, address, social security number, date of birth, and account holdings.
  • Information received from you during meetings, telephone conversations, or electronically via email. This is often descriptions of your financial circumstances and goals, as well as investment account statements, tax returns, estate planning documents, and other items you may provide.
  • Information about your Account, brokerage transactions for the Account, and other information from unaffiliated third parties whose services are necessary to provide the advisory services you have authorized us to provide you.
  • Additionally, you may direct others, such as your accountant or attorney, to provide information about you to us.
    • Information we receive from you through transactions, correspondence and other communications with us; and
    • Information we otherwise obtain from you in connection with providing you a financial product or service.

Information Sharing with Non‐affiliated Third Parties

Keystone does not share any nonpublic personal information about our current clients, potential or former clients with anyone, unless required by law or permitted by law, directed by you or enumerated below.

We do not disclose your personal information to third parties, except as described in this Policy. Our contractual arrangements with third parties require them to treat your information as confidential. Third party disclosures may include sharing limited information only on an as needed basis with non‐affiliated companies that perform support services for your account or facilitate your transactions with Keystone, including those that provide professional, legal, or accounting advice to Keystone. For example, we will share limited information with the custodian of your assets if it is required by them to properly service or update your account. Non‐affiliated companies that assist Keystone in providing services to you are required to maintain the confidentiality of such information to the extent they receive it, and to use your personal information only in the course of providing such services and only for the purposes that Keystone dictates.

We may also disclose your personal information to fulfill your instructions, to protect your and our rights and interests and those of our business partners, or pursuant to your express consent. For example, you may ask us to supply certain information directly to your accountant, attorney or perhaps to your banker. We may share limited information with our accountants, auditors or other service providers as required by us to responsibly operate and monitor our business and comply with regulatory requirements. Finally, under limited circumstances, your personal information may be disclosed to third parties as permitted by, or to comply with, applicable laws and regulations, for instance, when responding to proceedings of a court of law or similar legal process, to protect against fraud, and to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or regulatory authorities.

Security Procedures to Protect Confidential Information

A fundamental element of safeguarding your confidential information is to provide protection against unauthorized access or use of this information. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal guidelines to guard your nonpublic personal information against unauthorized access or use.

Keystone continuously stresses to its employees the importance of protecting confidential information. In securing electronic records, we make extensive use of password protection, data encryption (AES‐256), and our computers reside behind a firewall to protect against unauthorized access. A backup of client data occurs each day and is stored in an offsite location. For further protection, we convert most client documents to electronic format to protect against fire, flood, vandalism and unauthorized access. All documents containing client identification or non‐public personal information that are being discarded are first shredded.

We will continue to enhance and maintain prudent security standards and procedures to protect against unauthorized access or use of your nonpublic personal information and records.
