Protecting the Privacy of Information
At UHY LLP, we are proud of the relationships we have developed with our clients. In serving as your trusted advisor, we are committed to providing you with the highest quality professional and business services while protecting your personal information. This privacy notice contains information about the policies and practices we employ to fulfill this commitment.
This policy applies to both current and former clients.
UHY LLP's obligation and commitment to safeguard confidentiality.
UHY LLP has always recognized the importance of holding your personal information in the strictest confidence. While UHY LLP are not licensed to practice public accountancy, many of our employees are members of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and are bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Similarly, employees who are Certified Financial Planners are bound by the rigorous confidentiality standards of their profession. With respect to those clients for whom we prepare tax returns, the Internal Revenue Code prohibits us from disclosing tax return information without client consent, other than for the specific purpose of providing services.
We hold our employees to strict standards of conduct to ensure the confidentiality of client information. We also require companies with which we do business to use appropriately and to safeguard the confidentiality of such information.
UHY LLP uses and shares information to better serve you.
We use and share information to provide high-quality services and to offer services that we believe will be of value and interest to our clients. For example, your non-public personal information enables us to:
- Provide you with comprehensive, high-quality services to meet your present and future needs.
- Navigate you to other companies within the UHY LLP family that offer other high-quality business and professional services.
UHY LLP collects non-public personal information that may include:
- Information that we collect from you personally in the course of providing services, such as your name, address, phone number, assets, income and investment objectives.
- Information that we collect, with your consent, from your attorneys and other advisors.
- Information about the services and products provided to you by the UHY LLP family of companies, such as the nature of the engagement, investment decisions made, assets placed under management and payment history.
- Information that we receive from others in order to establish your relationship with us, such as credit reports and income verification.
UHY LLP carefully limits information sharing.
If permitted by applicable laws and standards related to the professions in which our employees engage, we may share the information described above within the UHY LLP family of companies and with selected non-affiliated third parties. This sharing is carefully limited.
Information sharing within the UHY LLP family.
Within UHY LLP, we restrict employees’ access to non-public personal information based on their need to know information in order to provide you services or offer you additional services or products that may be of value to you.
Other information sharing.
We may also share non-public personal information about you with non-affiliated companies or other organizations as required or permitted by law and our professional standards. For example, we may share this information:
- With selected professional and financial services providers with whom we have joint marketing agreements to offer you services and products offered by the UHY LLP family or jointly with such other providers.
- With companies who help us to provide services to you (for example, the brokerage firm that executes securities transactions on your behalf or the company that processes your tax return).
- With companies that support UHY LLP's accounting, billing and other systems.
In all of these circumstances, our agreements with the non-affiliated third parties require that they keep your non-public personal information strictly private.
We may also share non-public personal information:
- As part of our peer review process.
- With federal and state regulators.
- In response to subpoenas and as otherwise required by law.
- To collect or report debts owed to us.
- In conjunction with a prospective purchase, sale or merger of a professional practice.
We have safeguards in place.
If we retain records relating to the services that we provide, they are protected. In order to guard your non-public personal information, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
