This Notice describes the rights you have concerning the PI that we collect about you, the sources from whom we obtain your Information, the categories of PI we collect and how we process this information. This Notice applies to U.S. residents who are “retail account customers” (dealing with us as an individual) of AmerX with respect to products and services provided by us in the United States and used primarily for personal, family or household purposes (not business purposes). Unless otherwise provided herein, this Notice does not apply to:

  • Corporate or institutional customers or individuals associated with a corporate or institutional account, who by virtue of the financial services we provide, have their personal information protected by financial industry specific privacy laws, including Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”), Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRP”) or due diligence requirements on AmerX with respect to “anti-money laundering” and “know your customer” rules; or

  • us, our affiliates, or others regarding your transactions with us and other sources;

  • consumer-reporting agencies; and

  • sources that are publicly available.


What Categories of PI do we collect and with whom do we share it?

The type of PI we collect, and process may vary depending on whether you deal with us as an individual or in connection with one of our corporate or institutional customers, as well as the jurisdiction where you reside. We may process the following categories of Information, among others:

  • Identifiers, such as (i) your contact information (name, phone number, postal address, email address and your personal or work-related contact information); and (ii) government-issued identifiers (social security number, passport number, or other similar documentation) as required and permitted by applicable laws.

We do not disclose PI of our customers or former customers to anyone, except pursuant to legal or regulatory requirements, to affiliates engaged in financial services, or as authorized by you. Recipients of such disclosure may include (a) auditors, law enforcement and regulatory agencies (including U.S. and regulators in other countries such as Japanese or attorneys acting with judicial authority); (b) affiliates that may provide business services for us for your benefit or may assist us in offering our or our affiliates’ products and services to you; (c) affiliates and other third party entities to facilitate the processing of securities transactions requested by you; or (d) affiliates and non-affiliates for credit review or reporting purposes.


In addition, FCRP gives you the opportunity to limit the sharing of certain “non-experience information” within the AmerX.

We also take appropriate precautions when we discard computers and other equipment that we have used to process or store customers’ PI.


Access and Correction of Information

Upon your written request, we will make available for your review any file we may maintain for your PI, provided, however, that any Information collected in connection with, or in anticipation of, any claim or legal proceeding may not be made available.

Business Continuity Plan Summary


Americas Executions, LLC (“AmerX”) has developed a Business Continuity Plan on how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, we will have to be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.

If after a significant business disruption, you cannot contact us as you usually do at (646) 979-8000, you should call our alternative number (212) 306-2700. If you cannot access us through either of those means, you should contact our clearing firm (if applicable) that maintains your account for instructions on how it may provide prompt access to funds and securities, enter orders and process other trade-related, cash and security transfer transactions.

We plan to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.

Our business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and
operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternative physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact, if any; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business. We back-up information via Vault America. While every emergency poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, we have been advised by our clearing firms that their objectives are to restore their operations and be able to complete existing transactions and accept new transactions and payments within the same business day. Your orders and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during this period. Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope, such as affecting only our firm, a single building housing our firm, the business district where our firm is located, the city where we are located, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption affecting only our firm or the building housing our firm, we will transfer our operations to a local site if necessary and expect to recover and resume business within a 24-hour period. In the event of a significant business disruption that closes the New York Stock Exchange (“NYSE”), we will move our staff from any affected offices to an alternative site designated by the Exchange. In a disruption affecting our business district, city, or region, we will transfer our operations to a site outside of the affected area and recover and resume business within a reasonable time. In either situation, we plan to continue business, transfer operations to our clearing firm if necessary, and notify you through our customer emergency number. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents us from remaining in business, we will reasonably ensure that our customers have prompt access to their funds and securities.
