As a fiduciary to our clients, we have a duty to hold in strict confidence all information concerning the personal and business affairs of our clients which we may acquire in the course of our professional relationship. As a part of that duty we do not divulge any information we obtain in the course of that relationship unless disclosure is expressly or impliedly authorized by the client or is required or otherwise permitted by law or by our regulators. As a result, any personal information which is provided to Cardinal in the course of our professional relationship with clients shall be held in strict confidence.
We do not sell, trade, barter or exchange any information obtained. Where we are required to disclose information by law or by our regulators, no more information that is necessary will be disclosed.
When visiting our website the only information which is collected by us is that which is voluntarily supplied by the visitor. However, our web server does track general information about visitors such as their domain name and time of visit. This information is collected and used to diagnose any problems with our server, to administer our website and to gather demographic information to permit us to evaluate and improve our website. We do not disclose or sell this information to others.
By communicating with us by e-mail, we may collect, use and disclose that information for the purposes for which it was communicated to us or for purposes otherwise required or permitted by law. That information, like all personal information we gather, will be held only for so long as is necessary for us to provide that service and in compliance with the laws which govern us.
We cannot guarantee that links on our website to other websites are secure or the information contained in those sites is accurate. Those sites may have different privacy policies than ours. Visitors should read the linked sites' policies before using them.
We regularly evaluate our physical, organizational and technological security measures to keep personal and business information, which is provided to us, secure. We use appropriate security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information that we have collected from you at our website.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding our privacy policies or practices, you are encouraged to speak directly to our Privacy Officer or send an e-mail message to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
