We respect your right to keep your personal information confidential and understand your desire to avoid unwanted solicitations. In adherence with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Bill we are required to protect your private identifying information such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, etc.  We hope that by taking a few moments to read our policy, you will have a better understanding of what we do with the information you provide us and how we keep it private and secure.

Types of Information We Collect
We collect certain personal information about you, but only when that information is provided by you or is obtained by us with your authorization. We use that information to prepare your personal income tax returns and may also use it to provide various tax and financial planning related services to you at your request.

Examples of sources from which we collect information include:

  • interviews and phone calls with you  
  • letters or e-mails from you  
  • tax return or financial organizers  
Parties to Whom We Disclose Information
 
As a general rule, we do not disclose personal information about our clients or former clients to anyone. However, to the extent permitted by law and any applicable state Code of Professional Conduct, certain nonpublic information about you may be disclosed in the following situations:
 

1. To comply with a validity issue and enforceable subpoena or summons.

2. In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale, or merger of all or part of our practice, provided that we take appropriate precautions (for example, through a written confidentiality agreement) so the prospective purchaser or merger partner does not disclose information obtained in the course of the review.

3. To provide information to affiliates of the firm and non-affiliated third parties who perform services or functions for us in conjunction with our services to you, but only if we have a contractual agreement with the other party that prohibits it from disclosing or using the information other than for the purposes for which it was disclosed. (Examples of such disclosures include using an outside service bureau to process tax returns or engaging a records retention agency to store prior year records.)

Confidentiality and Security of Nonpublic Personal Information
Except as otherwise described in this notice, we restrict access to nonpublic personal information about you to employees of our firm and other parties who must use that information to provide services to you. Their right to further disclose and use the information is limited by the policies of our firm, applicable law, our Code of Professional Conduct, and non-disclosure agreements where appropriate. We also maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable laws and regulations to guard your personal information from unauthorized access, alteration, or premature destruction.
