Alden Advisors Privacy Policy

We collect and keep only information that is necessary for us to provide IP VAMP™ Advisory and IP VAMP™ Transaction services requested by you and to administer your business with us. We may collect nonpublic personal information as a result of transactions with us, our affiliates or others. This could include information received as part of a private placement of securities, information received as part of our merger or acquisition work, or another reason.

Public Information

Your privacy is important to us and we have a high respect for the confidentiality of your personal and organizational information. The information we receive depends on what you do while visiting our site. We will not obtain personally identifying information about you unless you choose to provide it. If you are browsing our site anonymously, we will automatically collect some non-identifying statistical information to help us measure which pages of our website are visited and how long visitors use the site. This information includes data such as your IP address, the time and date, pages entered and time spent on individual pages. Your IP address is not linked to anything personally identifiable.

Information Use
If you request information from us or wish to access certain features of the site, you may be asked to provide personally identifying information so that we can respond effectively to your requests and needs. We will never share your information with anyone who isn’t directly providing service and support on behalf of Alden Advisors. If you provide us with identifiable information, we may attempt to contact you occasionally to determine if our services meet your expectations and offer additional assistance.  When we provide personal information to an authorized Alden Advisors agent or service provider, we require these providers to agree to safeguard your information, to use the information only for the intended purpose, and to abide by applicable law.  Only employees with a valid business reason have access to your personal information. These employees are educated on the importance of maintaining the confidentiality and security of this information. They are required to abide by our information handling practices.

Opting Out
Most clients tell us they appreciate receiving our news and insights; however, we believe it’s very important for you to be able to choose whether you receive periodic mailings and information from us. You can choose to opt out at any time by simply replying to a mailing to inform us of your preference. All of our mailings will clearly explain how you can easily opt out and stop receiving information from us.

Data Security
To help protect your confidentiality, Alden Advisors employs security safeguards; however, we can’t eliminate all security risks. For instance, Alden Advisors website may contain links to other websites. We have no responsibility or control over linked websites and their privacy policies or the way they collect and control your personal information. We encourage you to learn about the privacy practices of any website before providing personally identifying information.

Our Commitment to Privacy
In summary, we believe strongly in respecting your privacy and your wishes about the use of your personal information. While we may need to change this policy from time to time as new situations arise, we will never change our commitment to protecting your confidentiality and informing you of how we intend to use any information you provide to us.  As a member of the financial services industry, we are providing our privacy policy for informational purposes and will update and distribute it as required by law. It is also available upon request.
