Our privacy commitment to you is to disclose to you what information we gather and how we use it and to provide access to your information in order to allow you to review or correct it.
Our Rules of Professional Conduct require that partners and staff maintain the confidentiality of client and former client information, as well as the confidentiality of Firm information, except in rare and very specific circumstances.
Our Rules of Professional Conduct also require that partners and staff not use confidential information for personal advantage, for the advantage of a third party or to the disadvantage of a client, former client, or the Firm, unless consent has been obtained from the client, former client or the Firm.
Protecting your privacy and confidentiality of your personal information is fundamental in the way we do business. To us, providing you with the best client service includes handing your personal information with great care and respect. We do not sell, lease or trade personal information to other parties.
We protect your information at all times with appropriate safeguards and security measures. Our strict security standards protect our systems and your personal information against unauthorized access or use. Access to information maintained in our office is restricted to our personnel or select representatives who as part of their agreements are bound to maintain your confidentiality. We may disclose your personal information to a third party as it is required or permitted by applicable laws, rules, or regulations. We will not disclose any information to other third parties without your knowledge and consent.
We have implemented generally accepted standards of technology and operations security in order to protect information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction. All personnel of the firm have signed a confidentiality agreement. Only authorized Yaremchuk & Annicchiarico LLP personnel are provided access to client’s personal information and such personnel are required to treat this information as confidential.
