We do not sell or trade any of this data.
How Gramercy collects this information
Gramercy collects this information through various means, including; when you give us contact information, enter into an investment advisory contract with us, buy securities (i.e., interests in a fund) from us, and tell us where to send the money, or make a wire transfer. We may also collect personal information from other sources, such as our affiliates (Our affiliates are companies related to us by common ownership or control and can include both financial and nonfinancial companies).
How Gramercy uses the information that it collects
Gramercy utilizes the personal information we obtain from investors and prospects solely for purposes of facilitating our day to day business. For example, these purposes may include: to provide advisory services, to open an account; to process a transaction for an account, to market products and services, and to respond to court orders and legal investigations. We maintain such information in our databases to ensure our compliance with regulations requiring thorough identification of investors. Under no circumstances does Gramercy share this information with any outside organization other than to facilitate the servicing of investor accounts (described below) or as required by law.
