AMG FINANCIAL GROUP (“AMG”) is committed to the protection of privacy in relation to personal information. AMG collects, uses and retains your personal information in accordance with the Data Protection Principles and all relevant provisions of the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (the “Ordinance”).

We’ve designed our Web site to capture two types of information: automatic tracking and individualized. The first allows us to see which topics interest you most; the second helps us service your account(s).
Automatic tracking information is gathered by following your “footsteps” through amgwealth.com. The route you-and other visitors-choose tells us a little something about the people who visit our site. We use aggregate numbers to compile statistics, monitor trends and track site usage. We also use the information to make sure our technology is compatible with yours. We’re then better able to offer wealth management and financial advisory services that match your needs.
Individualized information can be anything you’ve provided to amgwealth.com that identifies you or your account(s). For example: Your name, identity card number, birth date, address and names of your dependents are types of individualized information. We use this information to service your account(s). It’s our policy to send and receive individualized information through encrypted channels only.
To use our secure services, “cookies” must be enabled. Cookies are small pieces of software that remain activated during your session in a secure area, they are deactivated when you log off.
We will not sell, rent or license your individualized information furnished by you to amgwealth.com unless you authorize it. But we may need to use and/or transfer it within the members of the AMG or to affiliate companies or with a third party vendor, within or outside Hong Kong, to perform administrative, technical, hosting, marketing or other functions that help us manage the site while providing service to you. .Our third party vendors subscribe to the same privacy practices as amgwealth.com.
Except as noted above, we will not release individualized information to any other party unless required to do so by government authorities or legal process or as otherwise permitted by law.
We will retain individualized information for a period necessary to attain the specified purposes.
You can contact our AMG Data Protection Officer (Address: 40/F, 118 Connaught Road West, Hong Kong) by mail.
If you don’t want amgwealth.com to collect, use and distribute information about you, there are always traditional means of communication available to you. Simply pick up the phone or send your questions, comments and specific information by regular mail.
From time to time we may send informational, educational or promotional materials to you at the e-mail address you’ve provided.
Please remember that e-mail messages can be viewed by other Internet users while in transit. If you have individualized information to communicate, please contact your dedicated wealth adviser or e-mail us a request for a wealth adviser to contact you.
Because we don’t own or control all the sites linked from amgwealth.com, we can’t guarantee they’re secure; therefore, we cannot assume responsibility for all their privacy practices. If you enroll with a company that is not affiliated with amgwealth.com or any members of the AMG, we urge you to review the privacy policies of any of the Web sites you visit once you leave amgwealth.com.
Your visit to amgwealth.com and any dispute over privacy is subject to this Policy, AMG’s Personal Information Collection Statement and our Legal Disclaimers/Conditions of Use including limitations of damages and the application of the laws of Hong Kong and exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Hong Kong.
