Acquisition of Information 

As your CPA, we collect non-public personal information provided by you from your tax organizer, worksheets, documents, securities transactions and discussions with you. Depending on the particular service you have requested, we may also request non-public personal information from other parties, including but not limited to your financial advisor, attorney, bank loan officer, insurance agent or credit report. However this third party information is never obtained without your specific authorization of the type of information and the sources from which it may be obtained.

Disclosure of Non-Public Personal Information

It is the policy of Sherman & Armbruster to keep all information about our engagement with you confidential so we will not disclose any information about you unless we have your approval or such disclosure as required/permitted by law. This applies even if you are no longer a client of the firm.

Internally, all information acquired is disclosed to employees of Sherman & Armbruster to conclude the engagement entered.  We have our own accounting, consulting and financial services activities which we may need to provide information that by law is considered non-public personal information.
You have the right to opt out of the disclosures.
