Statement of Confidentiality/Privacy
Under the recently enacted Gramm-Leach Bliley act, all financial advisors must relay to their clients their policy of disclosing non-public personal information to affiliated and non-affiliated third parties. The term non-public information can be defined as any information we receive from you on applications or other forms (i.e. name, address, social security number, income level, etc.) that you may complete for our usage.
It is the policy of Fischer Financial Services, Inc. to protect our clients’ interests and privacy to the best of our abilities. We have never in the past nor will we ever in the future disclose non-public personal or account information about current or former clients to third party entities unless directed to do so by a court order, or as required by the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission. Fischer Financial Services, Inc. is not the custodian of our clients’ assets, therefore, the broker/dealer firm(s) listed in the advisory agreement contract that is signed by both the client and Fischer Financial Services, Inc. will have access to the only information we disclose about our clients is aggregate information provided to a national database with no one particular person/entity or specific account being identified. We have no affiliates that could gain the interoffice computer network or the physical files. Procedural safeguards have been enacted to protect the clients’ best interests. All access to client information is restricted to employees of Fischer Financial Services, Inc. only, in an effort to provide quality service to you, the client.
The only exception to the above policy is our confidentiality disclosure form that is signed by every client when entering into a contract agreement with Fischer Financial Services, Inc. Fischer Financial Services, Inc. will only release information to persons/entities that are listed on this form. Anyone not listed on this form will not be given information from our office. It is the responsibility of the client to make sure that the information that we have on file is kept current and accurate at all times. Changes to this form must be done in writing and a new confidentiality disclosure form signed and dated to be effective.
