ClassicAntiques is committed to handling your customer information with high standards of information security.

We restrict access to your personally identifiable information to employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information. We test our security systems regularly and also contract with outside companies to audit our security systems and processes. For more information on ClassicAntiques's security practices, please visit the ClassicAntiques Security Center.

The security of your ClassicAntiques account also relies on your protection of your ClassicAntiques password. You may not share your ClassicAntiques password with anyone. ClassicAntiques will never ask you to send your password or other sensitive information to us in an e-mail, though we may ask you to enter this type of information on the ClassicAntiques website, which will always have a URL beginning with http://www.ClassicAntiques.Com/.

Any e-mail or other communication requesting your password, asking you to provide sensitive account information via email, or linking to a website with a URL that does not begin with http://www.ClassicAntiques.Com/ should be treated as unauthorized and suspicious and should be reported to ClassicAntiques immediately via any of the contact forms stated in the "Contact Us"-Page. If you do share your ClassicAntiques password with a third party for any reason, including because the third party has promised to provide you additional services such as account aggregation, the third party will have access to your account and your personal information, and you may be responsible for actions taken using your password. If you believe someone else has obtained access to your password, please change it immediately by logging in to your account at www.ClassicAntiques.Com and changing your Profile settings, and also contact us right away as described in Section F below.

You can also close your account through the ClassicAntiques Web site. If you close your ClassicAntiques account, we will mark your account in our database as "Closed," but will keep your account information in our database. This is necessary in order to deter fraud, by ensuring that persons who try to commit fraud will not be able to avoid detection simply by closing their account and opening a new account. However, if you close your account, your personally identifiable information will not be used by us for any further purposes, nor sold or shared with third parties, except as necessary to prevent fraud and assist law enforcement, or as required by law (for example, to send former Money Market Fund investors a report of dividends paid during the calendar year for tax reporting purposes).
