Meeder Investment Management
In order to enhance our ability to provide you with the best service possible, Meeder Investment Management (referred to as “we” or “us”) collects, uses, and shares certain information about you. This policy explains what information we collect and with whom we share it. The practices described in this policy are applicable to all consumers, including current and former customers, who do business with us. The policy also explains how we protect the security and confidentiality of our customer information.
We may collect information about Meeder Investment Management applicants and shareholders to help identify you, evaluate your application, service and manage your account, and offer services and products you may find valuable. We collect this information from a variety of sources, including:
· Information we receive from you on applications or other forms (e.g., your name, address, date of birth, social security number, and investment information);
· Information about your transactions and experiences with us (e.g., your account balance, transaction history, and investment selections); and
· Information we obtain from third parties regarding their brokerage, investment advisory, custodial, or other relationship with you (e.g., your account number, account balance, and transaction history).
B. INFORMATION WE SHARE WITH SERVICE PROVIDERS OR JOINT MARKETERS
We may disclose all of the information we collect, as described in paragraph A, to companies (including affiliates) that perform services on our behalf, including those that assist us in responding to inquiries, processing transactions, preparing and mailing account statements, and other forms of shareholder servicing. We also may provide that information to others who perform marketing services for us and to financial institutions with which we jointly offer financial products or services, provided they use the information solely for those purposes and they enter into a confidentiality agreement regarding the information.
Our affiliates are financial service providers that offer transfer agency, fund accounting, administrative, shareholder servicing, investment advisory, brokerage, and other financial services. In addition to the information we share with affiliates that provide services to us, we may share information described in paragraph A among affiliates to better assist you in achieving your financial goals.
D. INFORMATION WE SHARE WITH NONAFFILIATED THIRD PARTIES
We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to nonaffiliated third parties, except as described in paragraph B above and as required or permitted by law.
We maintain policies, and require all nonaffiliated third parties to maintain policies, to safeguard customer information. We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to those employees (or people working on our behalf and under confidentiality agreements) who need to know that information in order to provide products and services to you. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.
We may amend this policy at any time, and we will notify you of changes to its terms and conditions. In addition, we will provide customers a copy of this policy annually.
