Bruce Colin and Company, an SEC registered investment advisor, is committed to safeguarding the confidentiality of our clients’ personal and private information. As you may be aware, federal privacy laws enacted in 2001 require that we explain to you how we handle your non-public personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.
INFORMATION WE COLLECT
We may receive and collect the following types of personal information while working with you: (1) that which you directly provide to us in electronic, verbal, or written communications, (2) that which may be provided by your accountants, attorneys, and other professionals with whom you have relationships, as well as third parties, including brokerage firms and other financial institutions, that we may engage in order to assist you with your financial goals.

Such federal laws permit us to rely on nonaffiliated third parties for services that are necessary for us to work with you, including the servicing of your financial accounts.
PROTECTION OF YOUR INFORMATION
Just as we would expect others to treat our confidential information with care, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in our office that are designed to protect our clients’ privacy and personal information from unauthorized access.

We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Rights and Policies notice at any time and will notify clients by email or through a notice on our website homepage. If clients choose to terminate their relationship with us, we will continue to adhere to the policies and practices described in this or any subsequent versions of this notice.
