Gerring Capital Partners (“GCP”) values our relationship with you and considers your privacy an important priority in maintaining that relationship. We are committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of your personal information.  We are also committed to adhering to the rules and regulations as set forth by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

If you choose to use our Service, then you agree to the collection and use of information in relation with this policy.  The Personal Information that we collect are used for providing and improving the Service.  We will not use or share your information with anyone except as described in this Privacy Policy, GDPR and Terms of Use.

Collection and Use of Personal Information. GCP may collect personal information from you. Personal information is information relating to an identifiable person who can, by virtue of such information, be directly or indirectly identified. You may be asked to provide your personal information anytime you are in contact with GCP or a GCP affiliated company. GCP and its affiliates may share this personal information with each other and use it consistent with GCP’s Privacy Policy.  They may also combine it with other information to provide and improve GCP’s products, services, content, and advertising.  You are not required to provide the personal information that we have requested, but if you chose not to do so, in many cases GCP may not be able to provide you with our products or services or respond to any queries you may have.

How GCP will use your data:

Information GCP May Collect. In connection with providing investment products, financial advice, or other services, we obtain non-public personal information about you, including:

Information about your transactions with us, our affiliates, or others

Information received from credit or service bureaus or other third parties, such as your credit history or employment status.

Information may be used by GCP and its affiliates that perform support services for us, such as broker/dealers or companies that help us share products and services to you for a number of purposes, such as:

To protect your accounts from unauthorized access or identity theft;

To process your requests such as securities purchases and sales;

To establish or maintain an account with an unaffiliated third party, such as a clearing broker-dealer providing services to you and/or GCP

To service your accounts, such as by issuing checks and account statements

To comply with Federal, State, and Self-Regulatory Organization requirements

To keep you informed about financial services of interest to you.

To conduct internal research such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve GCP’s products, services, and customer communications.

Categories of Information We Disclose: GCP may disclose all information that we collect. GCP and its affiliates do not sell customer lists and will not sell your name to telemarketers.  Personal information will only be shared by GCP to provide or improve our products, services and advertising.  It will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.

GCP may share personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, and providing customer service.  GCP may also share your information with financial institutions who provide payment services both to and from you.

It may be necessary − by law, litigation, or requests from government authorities within or outside your country of residence − for GCP to disclose Your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users.

Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale of GCP we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.

Protection of Personal Information.  GCP takes the security of your personal information very seriously. When your personal data is stored by GCP, we use computer systems with limited access housed in facilities using physical security measures. GCP restricts access to nonpublic personal information about you to those individuals who need to know that information to provide products or services to you and perform their respective duties. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural security measures to safeguard confidential client information.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user places an order to maintain the safety of your personal information.

If you decide to terminate your agreement with GCP and become an inactive customer, GCP’s Privacy Policy will continue to apply to you.

When you use some GCP products and services that by their nature are public facing, such as when you post on a ClickFunnels forum or submit a comment on the GCP website, the personal information and content you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected, or used by them. You are responsible for the personal information you choose to share or submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and e-mail address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.

Retention of Personal Information. GCP will retain your personal information for as long as you are a GCP client. After your GCP account is terminated, we will retain your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Access to Personal Information. You can help ensure that your contact information and preferences are accurate, complete, and up to date by contacting us at parnell@gerringcapital.com. For other personal information we hold, we will provide you with access (including a copy) upon your request.  We may decline to process requests that are frivolous, vexatious, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law.  Access, correction, or deletion requests can be made by contacting parnell@gerringcapital.com

Children & Education. We understand the importance of taking extra precautions to protect the privacy and safety of children using GCP products and services. Children under the age of 18, are not permitted to use GCP products and services without approval of a legal guardian; instead, a parent must obtain the account and provide the parent’s information to GCP. If we learn that we have collected the personal information of a child under 18 we will delete the information as soon as possible.

Third Party Sites and Services. GCP websites, products, applications, and services may contain links to third-party websites, products, and services. Our products and services may also use or offer products or services from third parties. Information collected by third parties is governed by their privacy practices. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of those third parties.
