How We Use and Protect Personal Information
Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We value your trust. We want you to understand what information we collect, how we protect it and how we may use it. We treat Nonpublic Personal Information ("NPI") with respect and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.
• We do not sell information about you.
• We do not share your information for marketing purposes.

Information We May Collect
We may obtain NPI to provide you with the services you have requested. We may collect NPI from you, from your transactions with us, and from outside parties. This NPI may include:
• Your name, address, phone number, social security number, e-mail address, assets and accounts with others
• Your transactions and experiences with us and our affiliates, or with outside companies, such as brokerage and custodial arrangements and your relationship with your Investment Professional
• Information relating to your employment, income, finances and other personal characteristics.

Information We May Disclose
We may disclose NPI only in certain instances. The service providers and others to whom we disclose NPI are obliged to use it only for the purposes stated.

Privacy Policy Notifications
We provide our Privacy Policy at the start of the client relationship. We also send a Privacy Policy notice to current clients each year. If you are no longer a client, we will follow our then current Privacy Policy, but we will not send you further notices.

Change in Privacy Policy
We reserve the right to change our Privacy Policy at any time. If we make material changes, we will provide current clients with a revised notice describing our new policy.

Our Security Procedures
We maintain physical, electronic and procedural protections designed to protect and prevent unauthorized access to NPI. Employees who violate our Privacy Policy are subject to disciplinary action.

Online Privacy and Security
In addition to the Privacy Policy outlined above, the following privacy and security principles apply when you visit us on our web site or communicate with us electronically.

Online information and collection

We may use this data to monitor site performance and to make the site easier and more convenient to use. We may use this data in the course of delivering an advertisement to you. We may also summarize data about our customers, sales, traffic patterns and services. These statistics may be provided to third parties.

Cookies
• Cookies are small pieces of data stored on your computer. We use cookies to measure web site usage and enhance it. We may use cookies to remember your user name so you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our web site.
