We will limit the use of your personal information to the purposes for which it was originally collected and will use or disclose your personal information only with your knowledge and consent, except where required or permitted by law.


How do we share your information?

We do not disclose personal information we collect about you, except as described in this Privacy Policy. For each of the information categories listed above, we may share this information with third parties and affiliates for business or commercial purposes.

Oppenheimer Companies and Affiliates: We may share your personal information within the Oppenheimer Group family of companies and with our affiliates.

Your Rights under Applicable Data Privacy Laws

Depending on the laws of the country/state/province where you reside, you may have certain rights regarding your personal information, such as the right to access or correct your personal information.

For questions about, or to exercise, the applicable privacy rights in your country/state/province, please contact us at [email protected], or, if you are a California resident, refer to the section below for more information.


Your California Privacy Rights

California residents may have certain rights, subject to legal limitations, concerning the collection, use, and disclosure of their personal data:

  • Right to Know. You have the right to request information about the categories of personal data we have collected about you, the categories of sources from which we collected the personal data, the purposes for collecting the personal data, and to whom we have disclosed personal data and why (“Categories Report”). You may also request the specific pieces of personal data we have collected about you (“Specific Pieces Report”).
  • Right to Delete. You have the right to request that we delete personal data that we have collected from you.
  • Right to Correct. You have the right to request that we correct inaccurate personal data that we maintain about you.

California residents may request to exercise the above rights by submitting a request to [email protected]. We will not discriminate against you for exercising your privacy rights. We will respond to all requests within 45 days, unless we need more time, in which case we will notify you and may take up to 90 days total to respond to your request.


Our Process for Responding to Requests for Access or Deletion under the CCPA

Verification: In order to process requests, we will need to obtain information to locate you in our records or verify your identity, depending on the nature of the request. In most cases, we will request information about you, which may include your name, email address, or other information. If you submit a Right to Know “Specific Pieces Report,” we may also request a signed declaration, under penalty of perjury, that you are who you say you are. We may request alternative information under certain circumstances and/or use third parties to help verify your identity.

Authorized Agents: Authorized agents may request to exercise rights on behalf of California residents, but we reserve the right to also verify the individual’s identity directly as described above. Authorized agents must contact us by submitting a request through our webform and indicate that they are submitting the request as an authorized agent. Authorized agents must provide evidence of their identity and documentation evidencing proof of the authorized agent’s legal authority to act on the behalf of the individual California resident.
