We are committed to keeping personal information collected from potential, current and former clients confidential and secure. The proper handling of personal information is one of our highest priorities. We never sell information relating to our clients to any outside third parties.
We collect and keep only information that is necessary for us to provide the services requested by our clients and to administer clients’ business with us.
We may collect non-public personal information from clients or potential clients:
- From clients when they complete an application or other form, as well as through written and electronic correspondence and telephone contacts. This includes information such as name, address, social security number, assets, income, net worth, copies of financial documents and other information deemed necessary to evaluate the client’s financial needs.
- As a result of transactions with us, our affiliates if any, or others. This could include transactions completed with us or information received from outside vendors to complete transactions or to effect financial goals.
We only share the non-public personal information of our clients with non-affiliated companies or individuals (i) as permitted by law and as required to provide services to our clients, such as with representatives within our firm, securities clearing firms, mutual fund companies, insurance companies and other financial services providers, or (ii) to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. We may also disclose non-public personal information to another financial services provider in connection with the transfer of an account to such financial services provider. Further, in the normal course of our business, we may disclose information we collect about clients to companies or individuals that contract with us to perform servicing functions such as:
- Computer-related services
- Good faith disclosure to regulators who have regulatory authority over the company.
Companies hired to provide support services are not allowed to use personal information for their own purposes and are contractually obligated to maintain strict confidentiality. We limit use of personal information to the performance of the specific service requested.
We do not provide personally identifiable information to mailing list vendors or solicitors for any purpose. When we provide personal information to service providers, we require these providers to agree to safeguard such information, to use the information only for the intended purpose and to abide by applicable law.
EMPLOYEE ACCESS TO INFORMATION
Only employees with a valid business reason have access to clients’ personal information. These employees are educated on the importance of maintaining the confidentiality and security of this information. They are required to abide by our information handling practices.
PROTECTION OF INFORMATION
We maintain security standards to protect clients’ information, whether written, spoken, or electronic. We update and check our systems to ensure the protection and integrity of information.
MAINTAINING ACCURATE INFORMATION
Our goal is to maintain accurate, up to date client records in accordance with industry standards. We have procedures in place to keep information current and complete, including timely correction of inaccurate information.
Should clients send us questions and comments via e-mail, we will share the client’s correspondence only with those employees or agents most capable of addressing the client’s questions and concerns.
We will retain all written communication until we have done our very best to provide the client with a complete and satisfactory response. Ultimately, we will either discard the communication or archive it according to the requirements under applicable securities laws.
Please note that, unless expressly advised otherwise, our e-mail facilities do not provide a means for completely secure and private communications between us and our clients. Although every attempt will be made to keep client information confidential, from a technical standpoint, there is still a risk. For that reason, please do not use e-mail to communicate information to us that is considered to be confidential. If the client wishes, communications with us may be conducted via telephone or by facsimile.
