How We Protect Your Personal Information

We recognize that our relationships with you are based on integrity and trust. We work hard to maintain your privacy. We are very careful to preserve the private nature of our relationship with you. At the same time, the very nature of our business sometimes requires that we collect or share certain information about you with others. As such, we want you to be aware of how we handle and protect your personal information. Our policies and procedures for collecting and disclosing personal information are detailed below:

We may collect non-public personal information about you from:

  • Trust documents, applications, or other forms, interviews, or by other means;
  • Consumer or other reporting agencies, medical or health care providers, government agencies, employers or others;
  • Your transactions with us, our affiliates, or others; and
  • Our Internet website.

We may share the information we collect with agents, brokers and others who service you. We may share the financial information we collect with financial service affiliates such as insurance companies, investment companies, insurance agencies, and securities broker-dealers.

Generally, we are allowed to share your financial information with our affiliates in marketing products or services to you. You cannot limit these disclosures. We may also share that information with companies that perform marketing or administrative services for us.

We may share some or all of the information we collect with other financial institutions with whom we jointly market products. This may be done only if it is permitted in the state in which you live. Some disclosures may be limited to your name, contact and transaction information with us or our affiliates.

Any disclosures will be only to the extent permitted by federal and state law. Certain disclosures may require us to get an "opt-in" or "opt-out" from you. If this is required, we will do so before information is shared. Any medical or health information we collect about you may be shared with third parties only to administer your account, as permitted by law, or as authorized by you.

We require anyone with whom we share your personal information to protect it. We also require that they use it solely for the purpose for which it was shared.

Otherwise, we do not share any personal information about our customers or former customers unless authorized by the customer or as permitted by law.

We restrict access to personal information about you to those employees who need to know that information to provide products and services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with legal standards to guard your personal information.

If we provide more than one product or service to you, you may receive more than one privacy notice from us. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We want to be sure you are aware of our privacy practices.
