Protecting the Confidentiality of Nonpublic Personal Financial Information
We protect the information that we maintain by employing industry standard security procedures to minimize the risk that information will be subject to unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. For example, we operate secure data networks protected by secured socket layers, a firewall and password protection systems. In addition, we utilize various physical security measures, such as: cipher locks on all computer room doors and key card access to all buildings. Only authorized employees and the representatives of authorized vendors who need that information to do their jobs, have access to the nonpublic personal financial information that we maintain. In those cases, the information provided is strictly limited and job specific.
