Privacy Policy

Category: Standards Published: Wednesday, 03 August 2011 Written by Administrator

Compliance Method: Staff of Wightman Financial Network, LLC, and associated support companies are committed to the provisions of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (the "Privacy Act") passed in November 1999.


The Privacy Act requires annual delivery of our Privacy Statement (not merely an offer to send, as with Form ADV). Annually, with their first quarter meetings, clients are presented a copy of our Privacy Statement.

Client agreements include the Privacy Statement language to reinforce our commitment to client privacy.

Prospects are provided our Privacy Statement as part of the marketing pocket folder that we send in advance of an initial meeting.

The Company maintains a hardware firewall to protect our server from intrusion by outside parties.

The Company uses encryption software when downloading data from financial institutions.

During normal business hours, our office entrance is continuously in view of staff. Outside of normal business hours, an intruder would have to break through locked points to obtain physical access to our files.

Detailed investment advice and other numerical information are not sent in e-mails. If a client requests investment advice, a telephone or office appointment is suggested, or a letter is written addressing the issue.

Employees acknowledge the Company privacy policy by signing a Privacy Policy Acknowledgement form.

Location: The master list of clients to whom the Privacy Statement has been sent each year is maintained in the archive filing area of our office, along with the list of people to whom our newsletter is mailed.
