Disclosure of Information
We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information, including financial information, about our current, past, or prospective clients to any third parties, except as stated in this policy, as otherwise required by law or as otherwise may be authorized by you from time to time. We may share this information outside our Companies in order to process or complete, or otherwise in connection with, the transaction for which the information was provided or as otherwise authorized by clients and correspondents. Laws permit us to share this information with our affiliates. We also may disclose information we collect to business concerns that perform ancillary product-related marketing services directly on our behalf or to companies with which we have joint marketing agreements.

We restrict access to nonpublic personal information about clients and correspondents to those employees/contractors of Companies who need to know that information to provide products or services to our clients and correspondents. We have in place physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards in order to protect any nonpublic personal information we maintain.
