Information We Collect and How We Use It. We collect information that you provide or that is made available to us as a result of your choosing to participate in the text message program. This will include your mobile telephone number or similar device identifier and may include additional personal and non-personal information. We will also collect information obtained in the course of you using the text message program (such as your questions, requests, or responses and in some cases information regarding your device or your location). We use this information to provide the text message program to you and we may also use this information to provide and customize our products and services for you and to improve our products and services generally. Communications sent and received via the text message program may be retained for quality, legal, and regulatory purposes. Your wireless carrier and other service providers may also collect data from your text message usage, and their practices are governed by their own policies.
TD Ameritrade text message programs are not designed for or directed to children younger than the age of 13. We do not collect personally-identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. If we discover that we have inadvertently collected personally–identifiable information from someone younger than age 13, we will delete that information from our active databases.
Note that TD Ameritrade is a United States company. By participating in a TD Ameritrade text message program, you consent to the transfer, storage and processing of your information in the United States, a jurisdiction in which the privacy laws may not be as comprehensive as those in the country where you reside and/or are a citizen.

Your Choices. You may opt-out at any time by replying “STOP” to any text message received or by texting “STOP” to the short-code designated with the text message program. You may receive a final text confirming your opt-out.

We may share the information with affiliates or third parties providing services on our behalf, in connection with any law enforcement request or legal obligation, to enforce our policies, prevent fraud, and to protect TD Ameritrade, our affiliates, our customers and third parties. We may also share information in connection with any bankruptcy, sale of corporate assets, or other corporate change, including any due diligence process.
