2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT
Personal Data is information that directly or indirectly identifies you as an individual, such as your name, email address, mailing address, telephone number and location.
Activity Data is information that, by itself, does not individually identify you, such as browser type, operating system, the webpages you viewed and how long you viewed them.
PAAMCO Prisma generally does not treat Activity Data as Personal Data. We may, however, link together different types of Activity Data or link Activity Data to Personal Data. If linked information identifies (or can be used to identify) an individual person, PAAMCO Prisma treats the linked information as Personal Data.
3. HOW WE COLLECT INFORMATION
PAAMCO Prisma collects information in the following ways:
When You Give PAAMCO Prisma Information
You are required to create an account to use certain features of the Site. When you create an account, we ask you for Personal Data, such as your name, email address, telephone number, and the type of investor you are (e.g., individual, analyst, broker). We may also collect and retain a record of all communications with you.
Data Collection Technology
We use Data Collection Technology that collects information, such as how long you spend on various webpages on the Site, which webpages you view, your search queries, error and performance reports and the webpages that you visited before and after using the Sites, as well as browser type, time zone, language settings, and operating system.
Data Collection Technology deployed through the Site includes web beacons, cookies, and analytic services. A web beacon (also called a pixel tag or clear GIF) is computer code that communicates information from your device to a server. Some of PAAMCO Prisma’s content and emails may contain embedded web beacons that allow a server to read certain types of information from your device, allow us to count the number of people who have viewed content, to know when you opened an email message and the IP address of your device. Web beacons help PAAMCO Prisma develop statistical information to provide better and more personalized content.
Cookies are small text files that are sent to or accessed from your web browser or your computer’s hard drive. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain (internet location) from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e., when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identifier. A cookie also may contain information about your computer, such as user settings, browsing history, and activities conducted while using the Site. To learn more about cookies and web beacons, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
Some web browsers (including some mobile web browsers) provide settings that allow you to control or reject cookies or to alert you when a cookie is placed on your device. You also may be able to reject mobile device identifiers by activating the appropriate setting on your mobile device. Although you are not required to accept cookies or mobile device identifiers, if you block or reject them, you may not have access to all features available through the Site.
PAAMCO Prisma also uses analytics services, such as Google Analytics, to collect Activity Data. Generally analytics services do not identify individual users. Many analytics services allow you to opt out of data collection. For example, to learn more about Google Analytics practices and to opt out, visit
www.google.com/settings/ads or by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at
Collection of Investor Information
PAAMCO Prisma may also collect or receive Personal Data regarding investors from sources including: subscription documents or other related documents or forms; consumer reporting agencies; and investor transactions with PAAMCO Prisma, its affiliates, or other parties.
4. DO NOT TRACK
PAAMCO Prisma does not track its customers over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals. However, some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. If you are visiting such sites, your browser allows you to set the DNT signal so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. You should consult the help pages of your browser to learn how to set your preferences so that websites do not track you.
5. HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may also store your Personal Data and share it with our affiliates, which are other financial institutions that provide investment-related research and services to PAAMCO Prisma, as permitted under applicable law. Personal Data shared with PAAMCO Prisma affiliates can include names, addresses, taxpayer identification number, assets under management, fees received, and performance returns. We may use or disclose this information for marketing, research and other business purposes, and we may associate your Personal Data with other information we collect about you, such as details about your usage patterns and interests, but we will not sell this information or disclose it to third parties.
We may also use service providers to facilitate our services or platform functions on our behalf. These companies and individuals may have access to your Personal Data, as needed to perform their functions, but may not use it for another purpose.
6. HOW WE PROTECT AND STORE INFORMATION
PAAMCO Prisma takes precautions intended to help protect information that we collect and store. However, no system or electronic data transmission is completely secure. Any transmission is at your own risk and we expect that you will use appropriate security measures to protect your information.
You are responsible for maintaining the security of your account credentials and other authentication involved in obtaining access to password-protected or secure areas of the Site. PAAMCO Prisma will treat access to the Site through your account credentials as authorized by you. Unauthorized access to password-protected or secure areas is prohibited and may lead to criminal prosecution. We may suspend your use of all or part of the Site without notice if we suspect or detect any breach of security. If you believe that information you provided to us is no longer secure, please notify us immediately using the contact information provided below.
PAAMCO Prisma retains information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which you provided the information, to comply with law legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce agreements, and for other similar essential purposes.
