Using various technologies and applying current securities standards, information is protected against unauthorized access, disclosure and inappropriate alteration or misuse.
Paper files are stored in locked, fire resistant filing areas. Electronic files are kept in a highly secured environment with restricted access. Our firewall infrastructure is strictly adhered to.

Upon request, a client will be informed as to the existence, use and disclosure of his or her personal information and shall be given access to it. It is important that all personal and financial information is accurate and complete. We encourage our clients to amend inaccuracies and to make corrections as necessary.
