How Do We Protect Your Information?

IFA has created this privacy policy to demonstrate our firm commitment to your privacy. To ensure the highest level of confidentiality and security, it is our goal to clarify our policy on the collection and use of your personal information. We will not give, sell or use your personal information to any outside company for its use in marketing or solicitation. We will maintain its confidentiality and it will be used only to support your customer relationship with IFA.

The security of your personal information is important to us.  Our employees are trained and required to safeguard your information for business purposes only.  We utilize administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect your information.  If you have any questions about the security of our services, you can contact us by calling us at 478-781-0087 or emailing us at mark.toney@ifachoice.net.

We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that comply with applicable law and federal standards and that are designed to restrict access to your information. These safeguards include programs and specifications for physical security and records retention and disposal; computer and communication security measures reflected in system design, password protection, and data management practices; and other measures to restrict access to the data we hold in physical and electronic forms.

If we collect sensitive information (such as your Social Security Number), we will encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL).

If we share your information with our service providers, we require all service providers to have written contracts with us that require them to safeguard your information and prohibit them from selling, retaining, using or disclosing your information for any purpose other than for the specific purpose of performing the contract.

Due to the nature of our procedural safeguards, if you request the return of any documents that you have given us for any reason, we will return them to you within 24 hours of the request.
