Legacy Planning Partners, an independent financial planning firm, is committed to safeguarding the confidential information of its clients. We hold all personal information provided to our firm in the strictest confidence.
These records include all personal information that we collect from you in connection with any of the services provided by Legacy Planning Partners. We have never disclosed information to nonaffiliated third parties, except as required by law, and do not anticipate doing so in the future. If we were to anticipate such a change in firm policy, we would be prohibited under the law from doing so without advising you first. As you know, we use health and financial information that you provide to us to help you meet your personal financial goals while guarding against any real or perceived infringements of your rights of privacy. Our policy with respect to personal information about you is below.
– We limit employee and agent access to information to only those who have a business or professional reason for knowing, and only to nonaffiliated parties as permitted by law. (For example, federal regulations permit us to share a limited amount of information about you with a brokerage firm in order to execute securities transactions on your behalf, or so that our firm can discuss your financial situation with your accountant or lawyer.)
– We maintain a secure office and computer environment to ensure that your information is not placed at unreasonable risk.
– The categories of nonpublic personal information that we collect from a client depend upon the scope of the client engagement. It may include information about your personal finances, information about your health to the extent that it is needed for the planning process, information about transactions between you and third parties, and information from consumer reporting agencies.
– For unaffiliated third parties that require access to your personal information, including financial services companies, consultants, and auditors, we also require strict confidentiality in our agreements with them and expect them to keep this information private. Federal and state regulators also may review firm records as permitted under law.
