Maintaining the confidentiality of client personal financial information is very important to us. To provide clients with superior service, we collect several types of nonpublic personal information about our clients, including:
- Information from forms that clients fill out and send to us in connection with a new account application (such as name, address, and social security number).
- Information a client gives to us orally.
- Information about the amount clients have invested (such as initial investment and any additions to and withdrawals from a capital account).
- Information about any bank accounts clients use for transfers between accounts.
Polaris Wealth does not sell or disclose client nonpublic personal information to anyone except as permitted or required by law. We share this information with our legal counsel as we deem appropriate, with our custodians in the course of servicing a client’s accounts, and with our regulators. Finally, we may disclose information about a client at the client’s request or with the client’s permission (for example, by sending duplicate account statements to someone designated by the client), or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
Access to information about clients is restricted to those employees who need to know the information to service client accounts. Our employees are trained to follow our procedures to protect client privacy and are instructed to access information about clients only when they have a business reason to obtain it. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to guard your nonpublic personal information.
If you have any questions concerning our privacy policies and procedures, please feel free to contact James Mason, Chief Compliance Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org
