CPAs, like all providers of personal financial services, are now required by law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. CPAs have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Therefore, we have always protected personal rights to privacy.
Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect
Nonpublic personal information collected by HAGB is provided to us by our client or obtained by us with our client’s authorization.
Parties to Whom We Disclose Information
For current and former clients, we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice except as required or permitted by law. Permitted disclosures include, for instance, providing information to our employees and, in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need to know that information in order to assist us in providing services to our clients. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of information being shared.
Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Current and Former Clients’ Information
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist our clients with their professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard each client’s nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
Disclosure Required by Law
Please be aware that it is possible that personal data you provide to HAGB may be subject to disclosure under the law (e.g. pursuant to a statutory provision, a court order or a subpoena).
