Sharing Information with Other Companies Permitted Under Law.
To administer, manage, service, and provide related services for client accounts, it is necessary for Keala to provide access to client information within the firm and to nonaffiliated companies, with whom we have entered into agreements. Since Keala shares nonpublic information solely to service client accounts, the firm does not otherwise disclose any nonpublic personal information about the firm’s customers or former customers to anyone, except as stated in this policy or permitted by law.
Keala may disclose the client’s information: (1) to individuals and/or entities not affiliated with Keala, including, but not limited to the client’s other professional advisors and/or certain service providers (i.e., attorney, accountant, insurance agent, broker-dealer, investment adviser, account custodian, record keeper, proxy management service provider, etc.) that may be recommended or engaged by Keala in furtherance of the client’s engagement of Keala; (2) to provide the client with marketing materials regarding our services, as well as those offered pursuant to joint agreements with our affiliates or non-affiliated third parties, so long as all parties offering the products and/or services have agreed, in writing, to protect the confidentiality of the customer’s information and to not use it for any other purpose; (3) as otherwise necessary in the course of effectively implementing its services; (4) enforce any of our rights, including the collection of any fees or other payments due; (5) as reasonably required pursuant to the proposed or actual sale, merger, transfer, or exchange of all, or a portion of, our business (6) required to do so by judicial or regulatory process; or (7) otherwise permitted to do so in accordance with the parameters of applicable federal and/or state privacy regulations.
The disclosure of Personal Information contained in any document completed by the client for processing and/or transmittal by Keala to facilitate the commencement/continuation/termination of a business relationship between the client and/or between Keala and a non-affiliated third party service provider (i.e., broker-dealer, investment adviser, account custodian, record keeper, insurance company, etc.), including, but not limited to, information contained in any document completed and/or executed by the client in furtherance of the client’s engagement of Keala (i.e., advisory agreement, client information form, etc.), shall be deemed as having been automatically authorized by the client with respect to the corresponding non-affiliated third-party service provider.
Procedures to Protect Confidentiality and Security of Your Personal Information
Keala has procedures in place that limit access to Personal Information to those employees, agents or affiliates, who need to know such information in order to perform business services.
