Privacy Policy

Hall Albright Garrison & Barnes, PC (HAGB) is committed to protecting your privacy. This Privacy Policy applies to activities directly related to your visit of the HAGB website. It does not apply to third parties’ websites linked through the HAGB website. We strongly recommend that you read these third parties’ privacy policies prior to providing any information to such sites. HAGB has no responsibility or liability in connection with any third parties’ websites.

CPAs, like all providers of personal financial services, are now required by law to inform their clients of their policies regarding privacy of client information. CPAs have been and continue to be bound by professional standards of confidentiality that are even more stringent than those required by law. Therefore, we have always protected personal rights to privacy.

Types of Nonpublic Personal Information We Collect

Nonpublic personal information collected by HAGB is provided to us by our client or obtained by us with our client’s authorization.

Parties to Whom We Disclose Information

For current and former clients, we do not disclose any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice except as required or permitted by law. Permitted disclosures include, for instance, providing information to our employees and, in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need to know that information in order to assist us in providing services to our clients. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of information being shared.

Protecting the Confidentiality and Security of Current and Former Clients’ Information

We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist our clients with their professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard each client’s nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.

Please contact us if you have any questions about our Privacy Policy. Your privacy, our professional ethics, and the ability to provide you with quality financial services are very important to us.

Disclosure Required by Law

Please be aware that it is possible that personal data you provide to HAGB may be subject to disclosure under the law (e.g. pursuant to a statutory provision, a court order or a subpoena).
