Privacy notice for California residents
This privacy notice for California residents (notice) supplements the information contained in the privacy policies of KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT LLC. This applies solely to visitors, users, and others who reside in the State of California (consumers or you). We provide this notice to comply with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and the regulations issued under it; accordingly, this notice addresses the specific requirements of the CCPA and should be read together with the other KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT privacy policies that apply based on your relationships with us.
Categories of personal information that we collect – During our communication with you via texts, calls, and emails we might collect the below-mentioned categories of personal information. This information might also be collected if you visit our website. Note that the categories listed below are defined by California state law. The inclusion of a category in the list below indicates only that, depending on the services we provide you, we may collect some information within that category. It does not necessarily mean that we collect all information listed in a particular category.
For your security, we will not return personal information outside the scope of the CCPA in response to an access request, except as otherwise required by law. We reserve the right to contact you directly if we have any questions or concerns about your account.
The CCPA provides specific privacy rights to California residents, including the right to receive a privacy notice, the right to know what personal information we have collected about you during the past 12 months, the right to know what categories of personal information we have shared with unaffiliated third parties, the right to opt-out of having your personal information sold, and the right (with certain exceptions) to request deletion of your personal information that is covered by the CCPA.
We collect information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer or household (personal information). As used in this notice, personal information does not include aggregate or deidentified information or publicly available information from government records. Personal information also generally excludes information we obtain in connection with providing financial products or services to our Personal Investor clients primarily for personal, family, or household use. Rather, that information is protected under federal law through the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Although that type of information isn’t subject to the consumer rights provided by the CCPA, KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT offers various options for accessing and reviewing the information maintained in connection with your accounts and KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT relationships.
You can review the information on your statements and other account documents through our brokerage custodian’s websites. You may also email or call us with your request for information. The CCPA includes other exceptions and exemptions that may limit your ability to exercise CCPA rights for certain types of personal information and certain kinds of relationships between a consumer and KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT.
1. CCPA right-to-know disclosures
The personal information we collect from California residents generally, the sources of that information, the purposes for which we use the information, and the categories of unaffiliated parties to whom we disclose the information is used for everyday business purposes. For purposes of this notice, the term everyday business purposes encompass the business purposes defined in the CCPA, as well as the following related purposes for which KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT may use personal information:
To provide the information, product, or service you request or as you may reasonably expect given the context in which we collect the personal information (such as providing client service, personalization, and preference management; providing updated product and service information; and dispute resolution);
For identity and credential management, including identity verification and authentication and system and technology administration.
To protect the security and integrity of our systems, networks, applications, and data, including detecting, analyzing, and resolving security threats, and collaborating with cybersecurity centers, consortia, and law enforcement about imminent threats.
For fraud detection and prevention.
For legal and regulatory compliance, including all uses and disclosures of personal information required by law or reasonably needed for compliance with our policies and procedures, such as anti-money laundering programs, security and incident response programs, intellectual property protection programs, and corporate ethics and compliance hotlines.

When we disclose personal information for a business purpose to service suppliers not affiliated with KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT (service suppliers), we enter a contract that describes the purpose and requires the service supplier, among other requirements, to both keep that personal information confidential and not use it for any purpose except performing the contract. In some circumstances, we engage service suppliers to assist us in providing our services, but we may not actually receive the information the service supplier maintains about you or associate that information with your KW WEALTH MANAGEMENT account or client profile.
