What We Disclose
We do not sell, nor do we disclose, any nonpublic personal information about our customers or former customers to anyone, except to those nonaffiliated third parties to whom we have contracted in the normal course of business or as permitted by law. In accordance with Section 248.13 of Regulation S-P, we may disclose all of the information we collect, as described above, to certain nonaffiliated third parties such as attorneys, accountants, auditors, and persons or entities that are assessing our compliance with industry standards. We enter into contractual agreements with all nonaffiliated third parties that prohibit such third parties from disclosing or using the information other than to carry out the purposes for which we disclose the information. An example of this would be a custodian with whom we have contracted to provide back-office support.
