2.  Transactional activity in your account (examples include trading history and balances).

How We Protect your Information

We have always considered the protection of sensitive information to be a sound business practice and a foundation of customer trust.  We employ extensive information protection controls keeping with industry standards and practices, and we regularly adapt these physical, electronic and procedural controls to respond to changing requirements and advances in technology.  Within TSA, MPLW and among our service providers, we restrict access to your information to those who require that access is order to provide products and services to you.  We do not sell your personal information to anyone.  We may share the personal information we collect about our customers, prospects or former customers with NFS, MPLW or with their:

4.  Other organizations, as permitted by the laws that protect your privacy (such as for fraud prevention)

5.  Other organizations, with your consent.

Only employees with business reasons have access to your personal information.  These employees are educated on the importance of maintaining confidentiality and security of this information.  They are required to abide by our information handling practices.  The law allows you to “opt out” of only certain kinds of information sharing with third parties.  We do not share personal information about you with any third parties that triggers this opt-out right.  This means YOU ARE ALREADY OPTED OUT.
