TAG will not share, copy or dis­trib­ute any per­sonal or busi­ness con­tact details with any third party with­out the prior con­sent of the per­son or busi­ness in question.

To enable us to pro­vide the ser­vices avail­able on this Site and to mon­i­tor and improve this Site, we may gather cer­tain infor­ma­tion about you, includ­ing details of your oper­at­ing sys­tem, browser ver­sion, domain name and IP address and the details of the web­site you linked from to this Site.

We may use cook­ies to store infor­ma­tion such as your User name and your ses­sion iden­ti­fiers to enable us to iden­tify whether you are reg­is­tered on to this Site and, if so, to short­cut your access to this Site.  We will only read cook­ies from your cookie file placed there through your web browser’s inter­ac­tion with this Site.

We endeavor to take all rea­son­able steps to pro­tect your per­sonal data includ­ing the use of encryp­tion tech­nol­ogy, but can­not guar­an­tee the secu­rity of any per­sonal data you dis­close online.

We have cer­tain respon­si­bil­i­ties under the Money Laun­der­ing Reg­u­la­tions 2007 and the FSA Rules to ver­ify the iden­tity of clients and may need to make cer­tain inquiries and obtain cer­tain infor­ma­tion from you for that pur­pose.  You con­firm that all infor­ma­tion you sup­ply will be accu­rate and that we may dis­close such infor­ma­tion as we con­sider nec­es­sary to com­ply with any report­ing or legal and reg­u­la­tory requirements.

You agree that we may dis­close to the FSA and to any other reg­u­la­tory author­ity to which we are sub­ject, or to any per­son empow­ered to require such infor­ma­tion by or under any law, any infor­ma­tion they may request or require relat­ing to you or, if rel­e­vant, any of your clients.

Pri­vacy Pol­icy - This pol­icy describes the types of per­sonal infor­ma­tion we may col­lect about you, the pur­poses for which we use the infor­ma­tion, the cir­cum­stances in which we may share the infor­ma­tion and the steps that we take to safe­guard the infor­ma­tion to pro­tect your pri­vacy.  The fol­low­ing pri­vacy pol­icy is intended to apply only to per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion that you pro­vide to TAG from time to time via this Site.

How We Col­lect Infor­ma­tion about You - In gen­eral, you can visit this Site with­out reveal­ing any infor­ma­tion about your­self.  Our web servers col­lect the domain names, not the e-mail addresses, of vis­i­tors.  Our web servers may seek to place a “cookie” (a small data file) on your computer’s hard drive, which allows the server to deter­mine your com­puter when it vis­its again.  This cookie is not used to obtain your name or any per­sonal data, and the infor­ma­tion that we track is only for inter­nal pur­poses.  If you pre­fer not to accept cook­ies, you should set your browser to reject them or to alert you before one is placed.

There are parts of this Site where we may need to col­lect per­sonal infor­ma­tion from you for a spe­cific pur­pose, such as to pro­vide you with cer­tain infor­ma­tion you may request.  If you vol­un­tar­ily sub­mit infor­ma­tion to this Site (for exam­ple, in a request for gen­eral infor­ma­tion or through the sub­mis­sion of a busi­ness pro­posal), we may record and use any per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion, such as your name, phone num­ber, fax num­ber and e-mail address, for rea­son­able busi­ness pur­poses includ­ing, but not lim­ited to, ful­fill­ing your request.  If you do not pro­vide all the infor­ma­tion that we may need, we may not be able to give you the infor­ma­tion that you request.

Uses of Col­lected Infor­ma­tion - We do not use domain name infor­ma­tion that we col­lect to iden­tify you per­son­ally.  We use this infor­ma­tion to mea­sure the use of our Site and to improve the con­tent of our Site.  When we col­lect other infor­ma­tion from you, such as your name and e-mail address, we gen­er­ally let you know at the time of col­lec­tion how we will use the per­sonal infor­ma­tion.  We use the per­sonal infor­ma­tion you pro­vide only to respond to your inquiry or to process your request (such as to receive investor rela­tions mate­ri­als or inquiry about employ­ment).  We will not use your per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion for any other pur­pose with­out your permission.

Dis­clo­sures of Your Per­sonal Infor­ma­tion within TAG - In order to pro­vide effi­cient and reli­able ser­vices and to improve ser­vice options avail­able to you, we may share your per­sonal infor­ma­tion with our sub­sidiaries or affil­i­ates.  For this pur­pose, we may trans­fer the infor­ma­tion you pro­vide to our sub­sidiaries or affil­i­ates in a coun­try that does not have data pro­tec­tion leg­is­la­tion sim­i­lar to your coun­try, and also may pro­vide a lower level of pro­tec­tion for your infor­ma­tion. By sub­mit­ting any infor­ma­tion you con­sent to these trans­fers.  We have taken cer­tain mea­sures out­lined below to try to ensure the secu­rity of your information.

Dis­clo­sures of Your Per­sonal Infor­ma­tion to Third Par­ties - TAG does not dis­close your per­sonal infor­ma­tion to third par­ties, except as described in this pol­icy.  We may share your per­sonal infor­ma­tion with other com­pa­nies we have hired to pro­vide ser­vices for us.  These companies—our vendors—are required to main­tain the con­fi­den­tial­ity of such infor­ma­tion to the extent they receive it and to use your per­sonal infor­ma­tion only in the course of pro­vid­ing such ser­vices and only for the pur­poses that TAG has hired them.  We do not share, sell, or lease per­sonal infor­ma­tion about you to any third-parties for their mar­ket­ing use.

We also may release infor­ma­tion about you if you direct us to do so, or if we are required to make dis­clo­sures to the gov­ern­ment or pri­vate par­ties in con­nec­tion with a law­suit, sub­poena, inves­ti­ga­tion or sim­i­lar pro­ceed­ing, or to pro­tect against fraud and to oth­er­wise coop­er­ate with law enforce­ment or reg­u­la­tory authorities.

Secu­rity of Col­lected Infor­ma­tion - We use what we con­sider to be rea­son­able efforts to main­tain phys­i­cal, elec­tronic, and admin­is­tra­tive safe­guards to pro­tect your per­sonal infor­ma­tion from unau­tho­rized or inap­pro­pri­ate access, but we note that the Inter­net is not a secure medium.  We restrict access to infor­ma­tion about you to those TAG per­son­nel who need to know the infor­ma­tion to respond to your inquiry or request.

Access to Col­lected Infor­ma­tion - You may review and update the infor­ma­tion that you pro­vide to us through this Site by con­tact­ing us as described below.

Con­tact­ing Us - If you have any ques­tions about this pri­vacy pol­icy, please con­tact us at info@alberleen.com. We wel­come your ques­tions and sug­ges­tions about our pri­vacy policy.

Busi­ness Con­ti­nu­ity Plan Summary

TAG is com­mit­ted to pro­tect­ing the inter­ests of our clients in the event of Sig­nif­i­cant Busi­ness Dis­rup­tion (“SBD”). The Busi­ness Con­ti­nu­ity Plan sum­mary below details how we will respond to events that sig­nif­i­cantly dis­rupt our business.

Our Firm will respond as imme­di­ately as prac­ti­ca­ble to an SBD, in the fol­low­ing pri­or­i­ties, by:

• safe­guard­ing employ­ees’ lives and TAG and client property;

• mak­ing a finan­cial and oper­a­tional assessment;

• recov­er­ing and resum­ing operations;

• pro­tect­ing TAG’s books and records; and

• allow­ing clients access to our exper­tise and ser­vices to pur­sue exist­ing engagements.

In the unlikely event that we deter­mine we are unable to con­tinue our busi­ness oper­a­tions, we will notify our clients to that effect and make avail­able to each of them any records and other doc­u­ments that we then main­tain related to the con­tin­u­a­tion of their business.

In the event of an SBD, we will autho­rize our employ­ees to remain at each person’s respec­tive home using the con­tact infor­ma­tion pro­vided else­where in this doc­u­ment.  Each indi­vid­ual has home tele­phone and/or cel­lu­lar phone con­tact infor­ma­tion.  Actual phys­i­cal office space is not nec­es­sary to the con­ti­nu­ity of our oper­a­tions dur­ing a dire emer­gency and for short peri­ods of time.  In the event of a long-term SBD, we will con­sider mov­ing our staff from affected offices to the clos­est of our unaf­fected office locations.

TAG has a com­pre­hen­sive archi­tec­ture for the elec­tronic back-up and recov­ery of its data.  The pri­mary data facil­i­ties for TAG are at 350 Fifth Avenue, Suite 5310-New York, New York, 10018.

We com­mu­ni­cate with our clients using the tele­phone, email, our web­site, fax, US mail, deliv­ery ser­vices and in-person vis­its at TAG or at the other’s loca­tion.  In the event of an SBD, we will assess which means of com­mu­ni­ca­tion are still avail­able to us, and use the means clos­est in speed and form (writ­ten or oral) to the means that we have used in the past to com­mu­ni­cate with the other party.  For exam­ple, if we have com­mu­ni­cated with a party by email but the Inter­net is unavail­able, we will call them on the tele­phone and fol­low up where a record is needed with paper copy in the US mail or rapid deliv­ery service.

If you have ques­tions regard­ing our Busi­ness Con­ti­nu­ity Plan, you may con­tact us at info@alberleen.com.  TAG will review this Busi­ness Con­ti­nu­ity Plan at least annu­ally to mod­ify it for any changes in our oper­a­tions, struc­ture, busi­ness or location.
