Limiting Collection and Retention of Information
USForex collects your personal information in order to provide our products and services to you and satisfy our regulatory obligations under relevant anti-money laundering laws, for example the Bank Secrecy Act and USA PATRIOT Act.
In order for us to satisfy our regulatory obligations under relevant anti-money laundering laws, (for example, the obligation that USForex takes reasonable steps to verify the identity of its clients), USForex may disclose your personal information to our external credit providers.
In some circumstances, USForex may also disclose your personal information to intermediary banks in order to process certain transactions on your behalf, for example, by disclosing your name and address.
The amount and type of information collected by USForex will be limited to that which is necessary to provide our services.
USForex will make reasonable efforts to inform you if we have collected personal information about you from someone else.
Personal information shall be retained only for as long as may be necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose for which the information is collected. However, you should be aware that USForex is obliged under relevant anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism legislation to retain information relating to personal identity for 7 years.
Subject to any legislative requirements, USForex will destroy, erase, or make anonymous your personal information when it is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it has been collected.
If you refuse or fail to provide any requested information, USForex may not be able to process any transaction/s for you.
USForex will make reasonable efforts to ensure that your personal information is sufficiently accurate, complete, and up-to-date to minimise the possibility that inappropriate information may be used to make a decision about you.
USForex will not routinely update your personal information, unless such a process is necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected. In accordance with the Client Agreement, you must notify us as soon as possible if any of the information you have provided to us has changed.
USForex has in place a range of security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use, or modification, regardless of the format in which it is held.
The methods of protection may depend on the sensitivity of the information and the format in which it is contained. Security measures employed by USForex include:
technological measures including SSL 128 bit encryption for all data transfers over the Internet;
physical measures such as locked filing cabinets and restricted access to offices; and
strategic measures such as security clearances and limiting access to a "need-to-know" basis.
USForex ensures that its staff is aware of the importance of maintaining the confidentiality of personal information.
USForex will upon request and within 10 days of any such request, allow you access to your personal information. The requested information shall be provided or made available in a form that is generally understandable.
In circumstances where you point out to USForex that any information held by us is inaccurate or incomplete, we will take appropriate action to amend the information as required and, if necessary, notify any third party of the correction.
There may be circumstances which preclude USForex from providing access to some or all of your personal information. Those circumstances could be:
the information may contain references to other individuals;
legal, investigative, security, or commercial proprietary reasons; or
the information is subject to solicitor-client or litigation privilege.
USForex may be prohibited by law from providing you with access to your personal information. For example, when the disclosure could:
threaten the safety or physical or mental health of an individual other than you;
reasonably be expected to cause immediate or grave harm to your safety;
reveal personal information about another individual; or
contravene another law that prohibits the disclosure.
USForex has procedures in place, to receive and respond to, complaints or inquiries about our policies and practices relating to the handling of personal information. For more information, see our Complaints Policy.
