CPAs, like all providers of personal financial services, are required by federal regulations to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information.

We collect nonpublic personal information about you that is provided to us by you or obtained by us with your authorization.

Parties to Whom We Disclose Information

Protecting Your Information

We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist you with your needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines.
