The Firm is 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. The Firm never sells information relating to its clients to any outside third parties.
The Firm collects and keeps only information that is necessary for it to provide the services requested by its Clients and to administer Clients’ business with the Firm.
The Firm may collect nonpublic personal information from Clients or potential Clients:
From Clients when they complete an application or other form. This includes information such as name, address, social security number, driver’s license number, assets, income, net worth, copies of financial documents and other information deemed necessary to evaluate the Client’s financial situation.
As a result of transactions with the Firm, its affiliates if any, or others. This could include transactions completed with the Firm or information received from outside vendors to complete transactions or to effect financial goals.
The Firm only shares the nonpublic personal information of its Clients with non-affiliated companies or individuals (i) as permitted by law (which may vary by state) 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. The Firm may also disclose nonpublic 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, the Firm may disclose information it collects about Clients to companies or individuals that contract with the Firm to perform servicing functions such as:
Recordkeeping; Computer-related services; and Good faith disclosure to regulators who have regulatory authority over the Firm.
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. The Firm limits use of personal information to the performance of the specific service requested.
The Firm does not provide personally identifiable information to mailing list vendors or solicitors for any purpose.
When the Firm provides personal information to service providers, it requires these providers to agree to safeguard such information in a comparable level to that of the Firm, 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
The Firm maintains security standards to protect Clients’ information, whether written, spoken, or electronic. The Firm updates and checks its systems to ensure the protection and integrity of information. This includes, but is not limited to, data encryption while data is transmitted. The level of encryption and protection will be based on applicable law, industry standards and risk in light of the size and scope of the Firm’s business and available resources.
Maintaining Accurate Information
The Firm’s goal is to maintain accurate, up to date Client records in accordance with industry standards. The Firm has procedures in place to keep information current and complete, including timely correction of inaccurate information.
Should Clients send the Firm questions and comments via e-mail, the Firm will share the client’s correspondence only with those employees or agents most capable of addressing the client’s questions and concerns.
The Firm will retain all written communication until it has done its very best to provide the Client with a complete and satisfactory response. Ultimately, the Firm will either discard the communication or archive it according to the requirements under applicable securities laws.
