- Statistical Domain and Access Data – Please note that when you visit our website, no personally identifiable information about you, such as your e-mail address, will be automatically collected by us. In fact, unless you choose otherwise, the only information we may collect from your visits is some information regarding the domain from which you are connecting to our website (e.g., msn.com if you are connecting from Microsoft Network, or aol.com if you are connecting from AOL) and the pages you view while on our site. This information is collected solely for statistical purposes and is not used to identify individuals.

In most instances, your inquiry will be forwarded to a Cetera Advisors representative who is licensed in your area for a response. This is necessary to help ensure that your specific inquiry is answered in accordance with the laws and regulations in your state of residence. E-mail addresses or other information you voluntarily provide while visiting our website are used solely for the purpose of responding to your questions and concerns, and will only be shared with others in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, which in some instances may require sharing such correspondence with our legal and compliance departments or with state and/or federal regulators.
Protecting Our Children
We do not knowingly solicit data from children, and we do not knowingly market to children. We recognize that protecting children’s identities and privacy online is important and that the responsibility to do so rests with both the online industry and with parents.
