We value our relationships with our investors, shareholders and financial professionals. Therefore, we are committed to providing our customers with a secure and confidential environment—one that respects your right to privacy and security with regard to your personal and financial information. It is important for you to know that:
- We do not collect any personal or financial information without your prior knowledge or consent. To provide you with services, we may request you provide personal information (e.g., name, Social Security number, account number, email address, postal address, company, and phone number) when you submit any of our forms, request literature, request that a financial professional contact you, send email, access your account, or perform transactions. We will use the information provided to facilitate your request or transaction.
- To improve the quality of our web site and smartphone applications and enhance their many features, we collect data about site traffic and page use. Our web site tracks the type of browsers that visit and how often our pages are viewed. At no time are these attributes correlated to any personal information that you supply, or with any personal information we maintain for the purpose of servicing your investment accounts.
Additional Information—Internet Security
Calvert is concerned about maintaining the privacy and security of your account information. Our site allows you to access your confidential account records. To protect this information we encrypt data using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
All information used or collected by our site is stored on servers and databases that are protected by firewall technology and housed in a secure building. This information is inaccessible via the Internet without proper security authentication.
To enhance your visit to our web site, and to enhance security when accessing account information, we may assign your computer browser a unique random number, called a "cookie." Your privacy and security are not compromised when you accept a cookie from our web site. Cookies are encrypted and sent securely, and a cookie cannot read data from your computer's hard disk or read cookie files from other web sites.
You, too, are responsible for the security of personal account information when using our online and telephone account services. Your password is your private entry key into your confidential account records. You should never share it with anyone and we recommend that you periodically change your password.
To provide added protection for your personal information, after 20 minutes of inactivity while you are logged in to our online account services, you will be logged out. To restart your account access session, you will need to login again. Also, as a precaution, if you enter your peronal identification number (PIN) incorrectly on three successive attempts your user ID will be temporarily suspended. You will need to contact Calvert Client Services at 800.368.2745 to have it reinstated.
If you forget or lose your PIN, please call Calvert Client Services at 800.368.2745, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST. Your PIN will be reset and you will need to go through the process of choosing a new PIN again. At no time will our associates be able to see your password.
After you finish accessing your account records, we recommend you log off. This prevents someone else from accessing your confidential account records if you leave your computer and your session has not "timed out" or automatically shut down. To prevent other users from viewing pages that your computer or browser may have temporarily stored, you should also shut down your computer after each session. Network users should consult their network administrators for additional security concerns.
Secure Email Communications
We welcome your correspondence via email; however, Internet and email communications are not confidential. It is possible that information transmitted to us may be read or obtained by other parties. In an attempt to protect your privacy, our email responses do not include personal account information, such as Social Security numbers or account numbers.
When you send us email, we keep the email in our mail system for an indefinite period of time in case you have any follow-up questions. If you ask us for account maintenance, such as an address change, we will attach a copy of the email to your correspondence record in our customer accounting system.
