Privacy Policy

1. Privacy Policy for Growing Profit Investments Financial Group

Growing Profit Investments is composed of Growing Profit Investments LLC. and Financial Services Inc. and its subsidiaries (“we/us”). We are committed to protecting our clients’, employees’ and representatives’ (“you/your”) privacy, and to ensuring the confidentiality of the personal information provided to us in the course of our business.

Our Privacy Policy sets out our standards for collecting, using, disclosing and storing your personal information. Our Privacy Policy also explains how we safeguard your personal information and your right to access that information.

2. Personal Information

Personal Information is any information about an individual that identifies him or her, such as financial, lifestyle or health information, but not their name, or business title, address, telephone and email.

Personal information has to be protected regardless of its characteristics or its form, whether written, graphic, audio, visual, computerized or any other form.

3. Purpose of Information Collection

Collecting information about you is necessary in order for us to provide you with high quality services. The nature and sensitivity of the information we collect about you varies according to the services we provide you and to legal requirements imposed on us (such as information required for tax purposes).

The purposes for which we collect personal information about you are identified at or before the time of collection. For example, information may be collected while submitting an application, opening an account, or submitting a claim. Purposes for collecting information generally include providing products or services requested, confirming your identity, protecting against fraud, or dealing with matters concerning the relationship between us.

4. Sharing Personal Information

We may establish a list of clients (names, addresses and telephone numbers) and share this list with companies within Growing Profit Investment Financial Group. You may request that your name be removed from such a list by writing to the Privacy Officer.

With your consent, we may also share your personal information with companies within Growing Profit Investment Financial Group in order to know you better, better meet your needs and offer the best possible service and client experience. If you do not want to receive such offers for products and services, you may choose not to provide your consent. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

5. Consent

When we obtain personal information from you, we initially require your consent to collect, use or disclose the information for the purposes specified. We will obtain your consent for any additional use, disclosure or collection, or if the purpose is changed.

We generally seek your express written consent in order to collect, use or disclose personal information. Where appropriate, we may accept your verbal consent. Occasionally, we may imply consent where we can infer consent from your action or inaction.

You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions. We will inform you of the consequences of such withdrawal, including the possibility that we may not be able to provide a product or process a request. If you choose to withdraw your consent, we will record the decision in our file.

6. Retention

We only retain your personal information for as long as needed for the purposes that it was collected. We must destroy this information in accordance with the law and our file retention guidelines. When we destroy your personal information, we make sure that confidentiality is secured and that no unauthorized person can access the information during the destruction process.

7. Accountability

We are responsible for your personal information in our possession or control, including information that may be transferred by us to third parties for processing. We require such third parties to keep personal information under strict standards of privacy and protection.

We adhere to legislated and self-imposed rules, aimed to safeguard your privacy. Our Privacy Officer is responsible for the oversight of this Privacy Policy and processes and procedures that we have to protect your personal information. Our staff is trained on these processes and procedures and is provided with information about privacy laws.

8. Safeguards

Protection methods include organizational measures such as requiring security clearances and limiting access to a “need-to-know'' basis, physical measures (e.g. building access cards for employees, visitor registration and identification cards, off-site backups and archiving), and technological measures such as the use of passwords and encryption (e.g. the use of firewalls and routinely changing passwords).

We have implemented and continue to implement rigorous safeguards so that your personal information remains strictly confidential and is protected against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized use, disclosure, access, copying, or modification.

9. Concerns and Complaints

Our employees and representatives are trained to respond to questions or concerns about your personal information. Should you be unsatisfied with our employee's or representative’s response, you may contact the Privacy Officer at the address mentioned above.
