Online advertising on CRC Group websites and applications

CRC Group advertises its products and services on pages within our sites. To make the content and advertising as informative and useful as possible, CRC Group may target and personalize content and advertisements for products and services on our site. 

Online advertising on third-party websites and applications

CRC Group may advertise its products and services on websites and applications not affiliated with CRC Group. The third-party companies we hire to display these ads use their own tracking technologies to measure the effectiveness of these ads and to understand your interests. Many of our third-party partners have their own privacy policies. We encourage you to review these policies carefully.

Some of our third-party advertising is interest-based and may use information about your online interests to customize the online ads you see. CRC Group has adopted the use of the AdChoices Icon for our interest-based advertising (excluding ads appearing on platforms that do not accept the icon). Anyone receiving an interest-based ad can click on the displayed icon to receive more information. The AdChoices Icon does not prevent you from receiving advertisements; instead, it allows you to control whether you receive interest-based advertisements and from which companies.

Social media

We use social media to facilitate social engagement and sharing, when such sharing is appropriate and safe.

Please refer to them to better understand your rights and obligations with regard to such content.

Given the very public nature of social media, it is critical that we all safeguard confidential financial information. If you post information on a CRC Group site that we feel should be shielded from public view, we will remove it. This includes not only specific details about your CRC Group accounts and other private, confidential information (such as your Social Security number), but details of information relayed in private conversations between you and CRC Group representatives. Please know that in taking down or editing your posts, we are focusing our experience and best judgment to keep your personal information safe.


Email transmitted across the internet is normally not protected and may be intercepted and viewed by others. Therefore, you should refrain from sending any confidential or private information via unsecured email to CRC Group. We'll never ask you to send confidential information to us via email, such as your logon ID, password, full account numbers, or Social Security number.

Occasionally, we will retain the content of your email—and our replies—to confirm proper responses to your questions and requests, to comply with legal and regulatory requirements, and to ensure that we consistently deliver an enjoyable client experience to you.
