Our law firm is required by federal law to inform our clients of our policies regarding client information privacy. Our firm has always protected our client’s right to privacy in accordance with the law and with our own professional standards of confidentiality, and we will continue to do so.
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect
We collect nonpublic personal information about you that is either provided to us by you or obtained by us with your express authorization. “Nonpublic personal information” means any personal information that is generally not known to the public, such as bank account numbers or social security numbers.
Disclosure of Nonpublic Personal Information
It is the policy of our firm to never disclose nonpublic personal information, or any other information, about our former or current clients except either as required or permitted by law or with your authorization. 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. In all circumstances, however, we stress the confidential nature of the information being shared.
Protection and Security of Client Information
We retain records relating to the professional services that we provide to you so that we are better able to assist you with your professional needs and to also ensure that we are in compliance with our professional guidelines. In addition, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard our client’s nonpublic personal information and to ensure that our client’s privacy is consistently maintained.
