How may Your Information be used and processed?

You acknowledge and agree that your answers to the risk tolerance questionnaire are used by FinaMetrica for the primary purpose of producing your risk tolerance report, including your risk tolerance score and information for your personal use in the management of your financial affairs or for use by your financial advisor in advising you with regard to your financial affairs or for use by the third party through whom you were registered to do the Test.


You also agree that FinaMetrica may use a copy of the risk tolerance and optional demographic information (“Research Information”) you supply without your personal identifiers for secondary purposes of researching risk tolerance and risk-taking behaviour and to further developing the Test.
