Your Privacy Is Important to P&NG

In the course of serving you as an individual client or as someone associated with a corporate or institutional client, P&NG may obtain personal information about you. Obtaining this information is important to our ability to deliver the highest level of service to you, but we also recognize that you expect us to treat this information appropriately.

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. As used throughout this policy, the term “P&NG” refers to P&NG Capital, Inc. and its affiliates.

The personal information we collect about you comes primarily from the account applications or other forms and materials you submit to P&NG during the course of your relationship with us.

Finally, in the provision of financial services to you and subject to strict compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, information may be collected about you indirectly from monitoring or other means (e.g. recording of telephone calls and monitoring e-mails). In these circumstances, the information is not accessed on a continuous or routine basis, but it may be used for compliance or security purposes.

The Information We Have about You

If you deal with P&NG in your individual capacity (e.g. as a Limited Partner), or as a settlor/trustee/beneficiary of a trust, or as an owner or principal of a company or other investment vehicle established to invest on your behalf or on behalf of your family, etc., the typical information we collect about you would include:
