Why is tZERO Markets collecting this information?
As a FINRA and SEC registered broker dealer, tZERO Markets is required under federal law (including under the US Patriot Act of 2001) to collect your name, address, tax ID / SSN and date of birth and verify your identity. This information is used to prevent known money launderers and terrorists from gaining access to capital markets.
