As an independent financial planning firm, Mission Financial Planning (“MFP”) is committed to safeguarding the confidential information of all current, former, and potential clients.
All personal information provided to our firm is held in the strictest confidence. These records include personal information we collect from you in connection with any services or potential services provided by MFP.
We have never disclosed information to non-affiliated third parties, except as required by law or by client consent, and do not anticipate doing so in the future. If we were to anticipate such a change in firm policy, we would be prohibited under the law from doing so without advising you first.
We use your information in helping you meet your personal financial goals while guarding against any real or perceived infringements of your rights of privacy.
Our policy with respect to personal information about you is listed below:
Information Kept Private; Sharing Limited to Need to Know
We do not share information with nonaffiliated parties except as required or permitted by law or by your consent. If you authorize us to disclose information about you to a third party such as a mortgage lender, your accountant, or your lawyer, then we will.
For unaffiliated third parties that require access to your personal information, including financial service companies, consultants, and auditors, we also require strict confidentiality in our agreements with them and expect them to keep this information private. For example, federal and state regulators may review firm records as permitted under law.
We do not provide your personally identifiable information to mailing list vendors or solicitors.
We maintain a secure office and computer environment to ensure that your information is not placed at unreasonable risk.
Categories of Information Collected
The categories of nonpublic personal information that we collect from a client depend upon the scope of the client engagement.
These categories may include information:
• about your personal finances, taxes, insurance, estate planning and employee benefits;
• about your personal goals, dreams, family and health to the extent needed for the planning process;
• about your company or practice;
• about transactions between you and third parties; and
• from consumer reporting agencies.
Maintenance of Information
Personally identifiable information about you will be maintained during the time you are a client, and for the required time that such records are required to be maintained by federal and state securities laws, and consistent with the CFP Board Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility.
