Amherst Securities Group LP currently does NOT collect personally identifying information via its Web site.
Amherst Securities Group LP collects IP addresses for the purposes of system administration and traffic monitoring.
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer whenever you are connected to the Internet. Our Web server automatically identifies your computer by its IP address.
When you request pages from www.amherstsecurities.com, our server logs your IP addresses. We do not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable with the exception of the portions of the web site that require you to enter a user name and password. With the exception of the password protected areas, this means that your session will be logged, but you remain anonymous to us.
If you are a registered user and you use our online fixed-income analytical softare, it is sometimes necessary to read and write to your hard drive. In order to use this software, you would have signed up with your Amherst representative via phone, mail or email. You would have been assigned a user name and a password. You would have to install WinFrame software that we sent you or that you downloaded from our Web site.
When you run the Amherst programs, the system will attempt to create a c:\SPIRES and/or C:\ASG sub-directory on your hard drive. It is within this sub-directory that the Amherst programs will allow you to save any custom files you create on our system. If you run the web version of our software, you will be prompted to give our programs permission to access your hard drive. If you do not give your permission, the programs will still work, but you will not be able to save and then later re-load custom files such as Bond Scan Queries.
Amherst Securities Group LP does not read or write any other data to your hard drive.
