Privacy Notice

Permit Capital Advisors, LLC (the “Company”) is committed to handling information regarding its partners responsibly. New technologies have dramatically changed the way information of all kinds is gathered, used and stored, but the importance of preserving the security and confidentiality of partner information has remained a core value of the Company. We recognize and respect the privacy expectations of each of our partners. We believe the confidentiality and protection of partner information is one of our fundamental responsibilities.

In the course of doing business with clients, the Company collects nonpublic personal information about clients. “Nonpublic personal information” is personally identifiable financial information about clients. For example, it includes client name, address, social security number, assets and income, account balance, bank account information and purchase and redemption history. The SEC’s Regulation S-P (Privacy of Consumer Financial Information), which was adopted to comply with Section 504 of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, requires investment advisors to disclose to clients their policies and procedures regarding the use and safekeeping of personal information.
