The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act requires that we, like all providers of personal financial services, inform our clients of our policies regarding privacy of client information. Our firm has been and continues to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Therefore, we have always protected and will continue to protect your right to privacy.
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect – We collect nonpublic personal information about you that is provided to us by you or obtained by us with your authorization.
Parties to Whom We Disclose Information – For current and former clients, we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice except 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. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of information being shared.
Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Current and Former Clients’ Information – 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.
Notices and Disclosures
Our Position on Objectivity – Through the years our service offering have expanded from those of a typical accounting firm. Because the current focus on corporate governance has transformed the landscape in which accounting firms operate, we work to keep abreast of these changes and advise clients on issues relating to objectivity. We frequently service clients in the full capacity, providing tax, audit, and consulting services, but also managed partial projects where governance has proscribed impartiality or our client wishes to have separate service providers.
Our Position on Outsourcing – In order to protect your privacy, our firm does not outsource any of its accounting work, whether local, regional, or of international basis. This ensures that your accounts are worked on by the professionals appointed to your engagement and that the full integrity of the issues impacting your organization is maintained. Permitted disclosures of nonpublic information obtained in the course of our practice may include, for instance, providing information to, in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need that information to assist us in providing services to you.
