Security and Privacy
At Anglo Far-East, your privacy is our highest concern. We believe that privacy and the right to private property go hand in hand. The priority we place on your privacy is reflected in the way that AFE has carefully evaluated every step in our process from a perspective of your protection.
Your Personal Information and Ownership
AFE servers holding client data are segregated in jurisdictions with strong personal privacy law. AFE is the only private gold custodian amongst the top three providers that does not host data on servers located within the USA and the UK. If privacy is a concern of yours, then understanding the risks you take if your personal information is held in these jurisdictions may be critical to the protection of your wealth.
Encrypted Communications and Data
When applying for an AFE Bullion Custody Account, your information is passed over secure encryption during the application process.
At all times, buy, sell, and remittance instructions are always lodged by secure encrypted communications with our Treasury department.
On a human resources level, AFE carefully screens, selects, and trains its personnel to appreciate, understand, and take personal responsibility for the privacy integrity of AFE’s clients.
Human resource policies in place segregate information internally, and a clients personal information remains sealed and cannot be accessed without the authority of the Director of Treasury.
Once your personal information is reviewed and approved, your account is assigned an account number. From this point forward your personal information is sealed and kept physically segregated from servers with contact with internet, and your account is referred to by account number only.
Your personal information such as name or address will never appear on any account statement. All statements are referred to by account number only.
Lowest Jurisdictional Risk
Finally, when considering jurisdictions, AFE carefully evaluated available choices and has chosen jurisdictions we feel are most likely to provide the very best defense in terms of personal privacy. AFE will not host client information in jurisdictions of major western nations which have invasive policies into personal information.
