Information we collect
We may collect non-public personal information about you on RFPs, questionnaires, and other forms we receive from you, as well as from personal contacts such as correspondence, e-mail, telephone calls, or meetings. We may also receive information about you from third parties, such as your accountants, lawyers, financial consultants, and/or other service providers. It also is possible to receive information from web browsers and apps regarding certain of your online activities using cookies, or other common tracking technologies. Please see our Cookies Policy for more information.
Wellington Management seeks to provide seamless service to all clients. To facilitate that process, personal information regarding client accounts is shared broadly between affiliates within the Wellington Management group of companies. For example, an affiliate may share information with other affiliates in order to facilitate portfolio management or provide client liaison services to a particular client or in order to identify potential client needs for additional investment management services.
Wellington Management generally does not share non-public personal information with unaffiliated third parties, except as necessary to perform the investment management services it has been hired to provide. For example, Wellington Management may share non-public client information with brokers and custodian banks in order to buy and sell securities and record those purchases and sales accurately. As a general rule, Wellington Management does not engage in joint marketing arrangements with unaffiliated third parties that involve the sharing of non-public information regarding Wellington Management’s clients. Wellington Management does not provide client information to unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Wellington Management does not disclose your information except as required or permitted by law. In the event that Wellington Management is involved in a merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets, or bankruptcy, your information may be transferred or sold as part of that transaction.
We use technical, administrative, and procedural measures in an attempt to safeguard your personal and other information from unauthorized access or use. Users are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of their own passwords. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting your relationship team member.
Transfer of data to other countries
Wellington is a global business and as a result we or our third party processors collect and transfer personal data globally and may transfer your personal data to locations outside of your country. Your personal data may also be processed by individuals operating outside your country who work for Wellington or for one of our vendors. Where Wellington transfers your personal data to another country, it is required to do so in a manner consistent with legal requirements.
We may revise these Terms from time to time; the most current version will always be at https://www.wellington.com/terms-of-use/. By continuing to access or use the Services after those revisions become effective, you agree to be bound by the revised Terms.
Effective as of 17 January 2014
