All information given to HFCM Advisors, ("HFCM") and all recommendations, services and advice furnished by HFCM to its clients will be kept confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone, except as HFCM may so agree in writing or as may be required to do so by law.
HFCM will collect non-public, personal information (NPI) about its clients as part of this engagement. This information will be obtained directly from the client and includes details such as the client's date of birth, social security number, financial account numbers and balances, tax returns, sources and amounts of income, home addresses and telephone numbers.
As part of HFCM's policy, HFCM restricts access to confidential personal information about its clients to those HFCM employees who need to know that information in order to provide products or services to its clients. HFCM maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to comply with international standards to guard its clients' confidential personal information.
The firm will provide nonpublic information about former customers only if required to do so by law or regulation or to those parties who need such information in order for the firm to carry out any continued obligation with respect to the services covered by the former adviser/customer relationship. Should a client agree to accept financial advisory services provided by HFCM, HFCM may share the client's NPI with non-affiliated third parties. HFCM may maintain agreements with various affiliated or non-affiliated entities who may act as the custodian and account holder for customers of HFCM and securities may be offered directly through those other broker-dealers properly engaged by HFCM. These third-party institutions may require agreements to establish a HFCM client's account with them. HFCM will share only the appropriate customer NPI needed to facilitate these account agreements on behalf of its clients.
Should you prefer, HFCM will not disclose confidential personal information about you to non-affiliated third parties? You may opt out of such disclosures; that is, you may direct HFCM not to make those disclosures (other than disclosures required or permitted by law). Should you wish to opt out of disclosures to non-affiliated third parties, please contact us?
