You provide us with personal information, such as your name, address, telephone number, social security number, account information, assets and/or income information (1) in the subscription agreement and related documents; (2) client agreements or other forms; (3) in correspondence and conversations with Wedbush Futures’ representatives; and (4) through transactions with Wedbush Futures or its affiliates. Wedbush Futures uses personal information to open and service your account. Additionally, some information is gathered automatically during your use of this site, as described below in the section “Cookies, tracking technologies and analytics.”

We may disclose personal information about you to parties other than our affiliates only for the following reasons:

  • Legal and routine business reasons: We may disclose personal information if required or permitted by law. We may share information with government agencies, and self-regulatory organizations that have jurisdiction over us, for example in regulatory examinations or inspections. We may disclose personal information to comply with court orders, or subpoenas. We may from time to time disclose personal information to our auditors, accountants, attorneys, brokers, and back-up data storage providers for legal and business reasons. We may disclose personal information in the event of a sale of our business, transfer of our assets, or bankruptcy.
  • To manage your account(s): We may also disclose personal information to certain service providers we have engaged to help us accept, service, manage, and protect your account(s).

  • Cookies, tracking technologies and analytics: Wedbush Futures uses some tracking technologies such as cookies and web beacons to record your preferences, track your use of the site, monitor traffic, and to support and improve the site. Wedbush Futures also uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies or other tracking technologies to help us analyze how users interact with and use this site, compile reports on the site’s activity, and provide other services related to site activity and usage. Google’s technologies may collect information such as your IP address, time of visit, whether you are a return visitor and any referring website. This site does not use Google Analytics to gather information that personally identifies you. The information generated by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google and will be subject to Google’s privacy policies.

If you decide to close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will adhere to the privacy policies and practices as described in this privacy policy. Wedbush Futures will treat personal information collected under prior policies, in the manner described in this policy.

Wedbush Futures does not track its website’s visitors over time and across third party websites to provide targeted advertising and therefore does not respond to Do Not Track (“DNT”) signals.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. Additionally, Wedbush Futures’ site utilizes various information security measures such as secured files and buildings, internet firewalls, an intrusion detection system, encrypted data transmission, and operating procedures to protect your personal information. We direct parties performing services for Wedbush Futures, including accountants, attorneys, auditors, brokers, consultants, temporary workers, and our administrators, to protect your personal information and to only use such information to provide the services we have contracted with them to perform. Although, Wedbush Futures takes these measures, attacks by hackers and other unpreventable circumstances may compromise the security of your personal information.
