What information does Whitnell collect and how is it used?

 

A. Personally-Identifiable Information:

Whitnell typically receives specific data about its website visitors only when such information is provided voluntarily, such as when our visitors request information, purchase or enroll for services, provide resume information for employment opportunities, or send us e-mail.

When you provide personally-identifiable information to Whitnell through our website, it will be used to fulfill your specific request. In most cases, you will be given the opportunity to select whether you do, or do not, want Whitnell to use this information for additional purposes.

You may also request that Whitnell not use your information by sending an e-mail to privacy@whitnell.com, however, Whitnell reserves the right, in its discretion, to send you bulletins and other important information about our services. Absent any instructions from you, Whitnell may use information you provide to inform you about additional services offered by Whitnell, Whitnell authorized agents, and other goods and services providers with whom Whitnell has relationships and whose offerings might be of interest to you. Whitnell will not, however, sell or trade your personally-identifiable information unless we are legally required to do so, or in the case of imminent physical harm to the visitor or others.

On those sites where you voluntarily offer any feedback, data, answers, questions, comments, suggestions, ideas or the like, Whitnell will treat that portion of the information as non-confidential and non-proprietary and, except as otherwise expressed in this privacy statement, Whitnell assumes no obligation to protect such information from disclosure.

Important Disclosure Information

Whitnell is an SEC registered investment adviser located in Oak Brook, Illinois. Whitnell and its representatives are in compliance with the current filing requirements imposed upon SEC registered investment advisers by those states in which Whitnell maintains clients.

Whitnell may only transact business in those states in which it is registered, or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration requirements. Whitnell‘s web site is limited to the dissemination of general information pertaining to its advisory services, together with access to additional investment-related information, publications, and links. Accordingly, the publication of Whitnell‘s web site on the Internet should not be construed by any consumer and/or prospective client as Whitnell‘s solicitation to effect, or attempt to effect transactions in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advice for compensation, over the Internet. 

Any subsequent, direct communication by Whitnell with a prospective client shall be conducted by a representative that is either registered or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from registration in the state where the prospective client resides. For information pertaining to the registration status of Whitnell, please contact the SEC or the state securities regulators for those states in which Whitnell maintains a notice filing.

A copy of Whitnell‘s current written disclosure statement discussing Whitnell‘s business operations, services, and fees is available from Whitnell upon written request. Whitnell does not make any representations or warranties as to the accuracy, timeliness, suitability, completeness, or relevance of any information prepared by any unaffiliated third party, whether linked to Whitnell‘s web site or incorporated herein, and takes no responsibility therefore. All such information is provided solely for convenience purposes only and all users thereof should be guided accordingly.

Please remember that different types of investments involve varying degrees of risk, and there can be no assurance that the future performance of any specific investment or investment strategy (including those undertaken or recommended by Whitnell) will be profitable or equal any historical performance level(s).

Certain portions of Whitnell‘s web site (i.e. newsletters, articles, commentaries, etc.) may contain a discussion of, and/or provide access to, Whitnell‘s (and those of other investment and non-investment professionals) positions and/or recommendations as of a specific prior date. Due to various factors, including changing market conditions, such discussion may no longer be reflective of current position(s) and/or recommendation(s).

Moreover, no client or prospective client should assume that any such discussion serves as the receipt of, or a substitute for, personalized advice from Whitnell or from any other investment professional. Whitnell is neither an attorney nor an accountant, and no portion of the web site content should be interpreted as legal, accounting or tax advice. 

Rankings and/or recognition by unaffiliated rating services and/or publications should not be construed by a client or prospective client as a guarantee that he/she will experience a certain level of results if Whitnell is engaged, or continues to be engaged, to provide investment advisory services, nor should it be construed as a current or past endorsement of Whitnell by any of its clients. Rankings published by magazines, and others, generally base their selections exclusively on information prepared and/or submitted by the recognized adviser.

Each client and prospective client agrees, as a condition precedent to his/her/its access to Whitnell‘s web site, to release and hold harmless Whitnell, its officers, directors, owners, employees and agents from any and all adverse consequences resulting from any of his/her/its actions and/or omissions which are independent of his/her/its receipt of personalized individual advice from Whitnell.
