Sharing your information
CC&L Financial Group combines a number of different investment teams with unique and diverse investment management expertise. CC&L Financial Group provides accounting, marketing, legal, compliance and other back office support functions to its affiliated investment teams. Your personal information may be shared with CC&L Financial Group. This information sharing allows us to more efficiently provide: (a) investment management and client relationship services; (b) investment and tax reporting; and (c) crime and fraud prevention, suppression and detection. It also allows us to meet our legal, financial and reporting obligations.
We may also use outside service providers or agents to perform services on our behalf, including custodial, trustee, legal, marketing, mail distribution or data processing services. These service providers may at times be responsible for processing or handling personal information, and are only provided the information necessary to perform the services they have been engaged to provide. Our service providers may process or store personal information outside Canada, and may disclose information in response to demands from regulatory or law enforcement authorities in those jurisdictions. We use contractual and other means to ensure that service providers protect personal information to the same standard used within CC&L Financial Group and do not use it for any purpose other than the services performed on our behalf.
We are committed to keeping your personal information safe, secure and confidential. We will only share your information with third parties as described in your agreement with us or under the following circumstances:
- To respond to valid and authorized information request;
- As permitted or required by law;
- To help prevent crime, fraud, money laundering and terrorist financing;
- To protect the safety of employees, clients or other third parties; or
- In situations where we have your consent.
When we provide information in response to a legal inquiry or order that we believe to be valid, we disclose only the information that is legally required.
