This notice is provided to you by Cabana, LLC (dba “Cabana Asset Management”), Cabana Advisors, LLC, Cabana Financial, LLC, Cabana Law Group, Cabana Retirement Solutions, and The Cabana Group, LLC (collectively, “Cabana”).

At Cabana, we highly value the trust and confidence you place in us as advisors, which is why we want you to understand how we collect, protect and safeguard your privacy when we use your personal information.

This policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit www.thecabanagroup.com or any other websites, mobile applications, or services that post a link to this Privacy Policy (collectively the “Website”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing that information.

The Privacy Policy applies to information we collect: (a) on this Website; (b) in email, text, and other electronic messages between you and this Website; (c) through mobile and desktop applications you download from this Website or from the various application stores including but not limited our cash management program application, which provide dedicated non-browser-based interaction between you and Cabana; and (d) when you interact with our advertising and applications on third-party websites and services, if those applications or advertising include links to this policy. This policy does not apply to information collected by Cabana offline or through any other means not expressly stated herein.

We would encourage you to carefully review this policy to ensure you understand our practices regarding how we collect, protect and use your information. If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you may choose not to use our Website. By accessing and/or using the Website, you agree and consent to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.  

What Information Do We Collect?

We collect several types of information from and about users, including:

  • Personally Identifiable Information, such as your name, address, email address, telephone number, or any other identifier by which you may be contacted online or offline. If you voluntarily submit information to our Website or mobile applications, for example, in an online application for an investment advisory account, we may record and use any personally identifiable information, such as your name, phone number and e-mail address, for reasonable business purposes including, but not limited to, fulfilling your request.  If you need to edit or update your information, you may contact us at info@thecabanagroup.com or for mobile application users, you may do so directly by editing your account profile.

(b) information that is about you but does not identify you individually; and/or

(c) Technical Information. We may record certain non-identifiable information that becomes available to us as a result of your visit to our Website, including, without limitation, the number and frequency of visitors to our website. This information includes, for example, the websites that you access immediately before and after your visit to our website, the Internet browser you are using, and your IP address. If we use such data at all, it will be on an aggregate basis, and we will not disclose to third parties any information that could be used to identify you personally.

(d) Cookies. We may use cookies or other similar technologies to collect certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit the Website.

Most web browsers allow you to disable cookies, however if you do so, some features of our Website may not be available to you.

(e) Do Not Track Requests. Because an industry-standard DNT protocol is not yet established, Cabana information collection and disclosure practices and the choices it offers to consumers will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Policy regardless of the “do not track” choice made by the consumer. But in general, Cabana does not collect personally identifiable information about an individual’s online activities over time and across third-party Websites or online services. However, it may track such information on its mobile applications, as applicable, to perform the services requested.

How Do We Collect the Information?

As you navigate and experience our Website, you may interact with various features that collect information both directly from you when you provide it to us and automatically as you navigate through the site.

A “cookie” is a small text file created by a website that is stored in the user’s computer either temporarily for that session only or permanently on the hard disk. Cookies provide a way for our Website to recognize you and keep track of your preferences.

A “web beacon” is a one-pixel transparent image located on a Web page or in an e-mail or other type of message and is hosted on a server enabling the verification of a user’s viewing or receipt of a webpage or message.  Web beacons can be used to track the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer or device that downloaded the page on which the web beacon appears, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of the page on which the web beacon appears, the time the page containing the web beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to access the webpage containing the web beacon and the identification number of any cookie on the computer or device previously placed by the server hosting the web beacon.  When we correspond with you via HTML capable e-mail, Web beacons let us know whether you received and opened our e-mail. On their own, cookies or web beacons do not contain or reveal any personally identifiable information; however, if you choose to furnish the Website with personally identifiable information, this information can be linked to the data stored using cookies and/or web beacons.
