Notice Regarding the Sharing of Corporate Client Information
“Opt Out” Notice
Alternative Investment Capital Limited (“AIC”) aims to play a useful role for its clients by adding high value to the financial products and services that AIC provides, with close cooperation with various related parties. Accordingly, AIC has issued the following “opt out method*” notice in regard to its policy on sharing corporate client information.
* The “opt-out method” refers to the policy of AIC sharing corporate client information with its related parties after giving clients prior notification of this policy. Clients who do not wish that information be shared out of AIC and has requested AIC to cease sharing of such information will be excluded. This differs from the “opt-in method,” a policy by which AIC shares information only about clients who have expressed their consent to share information in writing or by other means.
Policy regarding the sharing of information based on the opt-out method
(Note 1) Please note that the mutual provision of information and the mutual provision of information based on Laws and Regulations will not be suspended in regards of our internal control operations (operations related to legal compliance management, operations related to risk management, internal audits, operations related to internal inspections, financial affairs accounting, and tax affairs).
(Note 2) Please be noted in advance that if the client has applied for an individual product or service and has agreed to mutually exchange information, AIC will continue to provide the information to the extent necessary, unless AIC is given specific instructions. In cases where information has been shared among related parties before AIC receives a request to cease sharing information from a client, the parties that have received information from the client may continue to use the information. However, companies that have received the information through sharing will dispose of such information using proper methods to ensure no leakage of information occurs.
