We recognize that our relationships with current and prospective clients are based on integrity and trust. We work hard to maintain your privacy and are very careful to preserve the private nature of our relationship with you. At the same time, the very nature of our business sometimes requires that we collect and share certain information about you with other organizations or companies. As such, we want you to be aware of how we handle personal information.

The following is a general description of the practices of C.H. Dean and its affiliated companies regarding disclosure of nonpublic information that you provide to us or that we collect from other sources. Please note however that if you hold shares of a mutual fund through a broker-dealer or other financial intermediary, the privacy policy of your financial intermediary would govern how your nonpublic personal information may be shared by them.

Types of Information We Collect

In order to provide services to our clients and shareholders, we may collect nonpublic personal information about you such as:

  • Information that we receive from you or your authorized representative on applications or other forms, correspondence, conversations, or by other means (such as your name, address, phone number, social security number, assets, income and date of birth);
  • Information that you have authorized us to receive from other outside parties; and
  • Information about your transactions with us, with our affiliates, or with others (such as your account number and balance, investments, and other financial information)

How We Use Your Information

Dean does not disclose any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers, except as required or permitted by law. Dean is permitted by law to disclose all of the nonpublic personal information we collect to appropriate service providers and affiliates in order to process your transactions and otherwise provide services to you. We may of course also disclose information to other parties as directed by you.

Confidentiality and Security

Dean restricts access to your nonpublic personal information to those who require the information to provide products or services to you. Dean maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in order to protect all non-public client information.

If you have any questions about our practices, or more specifically about our privacy policy, please contact us and we will be happy to give you additional detail.
