(referred to as “IMS Capital”) maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal standards to protect its clients’ nonpublic personal information (“information”). Through this policy and its underlying procedures, IMS Capital attempts to secure the confidentiality of customer records and information, and protect against anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of customer records and information. We do not collect personally identifiable information about you when you visit our website, unless you voluntarily provide it to us by completing the “Contact Us” page or by sending us an email.  If you choose to share with us personal information using either of these methods, we will retain it in our electronic communications archive.

Even if you do not share personal information with us, our website still may collect some information about you that does not personally identify you.  We are not unique in this regard, as this is a common practice of many businesses’ websites.  For example, we use a service provider to gather internet addresses that bring visitors to our website, IP addresses of visitors to our website, statistics about which pages on our website are most often visited, dates and times our website is visited, how long visitors remain on each page, general geographic information about website visitors, types of browsers and devices used to access our website, etc.  Our service provider uses cookies to collect this data and provides us with statistics in an aggregated format.  We use these statistics in our ongoing efforts to improve our website.  If you want to prevent cookies from being set on your device or to opt-out of this type of data collection, you can change your internet browser’s configuration or settings.


It is the policy of IMS Capital to restrict access to all current and former clients’ information (including but not limited to: information and records pertaining to personal background, investment objectives, financial situation, tax information/returns, investment holdings, account numbers, account balances, etc.) to those employees and affiliated/nonaffiliated entities who need to know that information in order to provide products or services in furtherance of the client’s engagement of IMS Capital.

In that regard, IMS Capital may disclose the client’s information: (1) to individuals and/or entities not affiliated with IMS Capital, including, but not limited to the client’s other professional advisors and/or certain service providers that may be recommended or engaged by IMS Capital in furtherance of the client’s engagement of IMS Capital (i.e., attorney, accountant, insurance agent, broker-dealer, investment adviser, account custodian, record keeper, etc.); (2) required to do so by judicial or regulatory process; or (3) otherwise permitted to do so in accordance with the parameters of applicable federal and/or state privacy regulations.

The disclosure of information contained in any document completed by the client for processing and/or transmittal by IMS Capital to facilitate the commencement/continuation/termination of a business relationship between the client and/or between IMS Capital and a nonaffiliated third party service provider (i.e., broker-dealer, investment advisor, account custodian, record keeper, insurance company, etc.), including, but not limited to, information contained in any document completed and/or executed by the client in furtherance of the client’s engagement of IMS Capital (i.e., advisory agreement, client information form, etc.), shall be deemed as having been automatically authorized by the client with respect to the corresponding nonaffiliated third party service provider.

IMS Capital permits only authorized employees and affiliates who have signed a copy of IMS Capital’s Privacy Policy to have access to client information. Employees violating IMS Capital’s Privacy Policy will be subject to IMS Capital’s disciplinary process. IMS Capital requires all third party service providers to sign confidentiality agreements and/or agree to follow our Privacy Policy.
