We are committed to protecting your privacy
Investment advisors, like all providers of personal financial services, are now required by law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information.
Investment advisors have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Therefore, we have always protected your right to privacy.
Types of nonpublic personal information we collect
In order to better serve your needs as a valued client, we require some nonpublic personal information about you. We collect information about you that is either provided to us by you or obtained by us with your authorization. This information may include, among other things, your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, date of birth, assets, and other financial information.
We also use a financial planning software system that inputs certain client data and information, such as account balances, which we use in order to provide recommendations to the relevant client.
We do not release any personally identifiable information to any third parties, except under limited circumstances as indicated herein.
How we use the information we collect
We will use your email address to communicate with you regarding your account with us. In addition, we may occasionally send you email messages containing updates about our products and services or upcoming events and a monthly newsletter. If you do not wish to receive such mailings, you may opt out by changing your Email Settings in iQueste.
Parties to whom we disclose information
We do not disclose or sell any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice for commercial gains, except in those circumstances mentioned below, regarding both current and former clients, and as required or permitted by law. Permitted disclosures include, for instance, providing information to our employees and, in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need to know that information to assist us in providing services to you or preventing fraud. In all such situations, we only release information that is required to complete the task and firmly stress the confidential nature of information being shared.
Protecting the confidentiality and security of current and former clients' information
If a governmental agency or an attorney subpoenas your private information or makes a formal request for discovery pursuant to any legal action or pending legal action, we may have to release such information to the requesting party.
If our own attorney requests personally identifiable information relevant to a current or pending legal matter in which you are a potential or actual party or otherwise contributed in some way to the causation of the legal matter, we may have to release such information to our legal counsel for his review and potential usage regarding a legal action. In such cases, our attorney may use your private information for purposes of preparing for or defending against a legal action or a threatened legal action that you are in some way involved with. This would include any litigation with any third party or entity and any legal action where we are a party and you are at least one of the parties.
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards. These standards are evaluated and updated regularly to ensure that they are current and effective.
