I. Acquisition of Client Information
The firm collects nonpublic personal information about our clients from the following sources:
- Information You Provide: Our client engagements routinely require us to obtain private
information about our clients so that we can proceed with the various services we
perform for our clients as part of the professional relationship.
- Other Sources: Depending upon the particular service a client has engaged the firm to
complete, we may request nonpublic information concerning the matter at hand.
II. Disclosure of Nonpublic Information
Our firm policy is never to disclose nonpublic information about our clients. Nonpublic personal
information is defined in the regulations as any publicly available information that we acquire
by using information you have provided us in connection with any professional services we
perform for you, which is not public information. An example would be a bank account number
that is somehow used to acquire information regarding a court trial or other public record that
would not have been found by us without using the bank account number acquired from you.
In a generic sense, any information that a client provides us that involves financial product or
service is likely considered nonpublic personal information and receives the same protection
from disclosure as all other information about our clients. For purposes of our business
relationships with our clients, all information acquired is disclosed only under the following
- Employees of the firm: Employees who need such information to conclude a
transaction for which the client has engaged the firm.
- Service Providers: As with any business, we have our own accounting, insurance and
other service firms that we may need to provide information that the regulations
consider nonpublic personal information. We have always insisted that any such
information that needed to be disclosed for a business purpose be considered
confidential and not used for any purpose other than the specific business need.
- Agencies Responsible for Fraud Investigations: Nonpublic personal information will be
disclosed relevant to an investigation of fraud or abuse of the Medicare or Medicaid
- Others: Other than as stated above, we do not disclose nonpublic personal
information, or any other information, to any outside party without specific client
