RiversEdge Advanced Retirement Solutions, LLC (RiversEdge) is dedicated to protecting the privacy of your nonpublic personal information. We maintain information about you in order to provide you with the most effective and convenient access to our services. We want you to understand what information we collect, and how we use and protect it. This notice serves as a standard for all of our employees for collection, use, retention and security of nonpublic personal consumer information.
Why does RiversEdge handle nonpublic personal information?
RiversEdge is engaged in the businesses of designing, enrolling, funding, and administering qualified retirement plans. In the course of pursuing our stated business objectives, RiversEdge collects, maintains, and otherwise has access to nonpublic personal information about our clients and potential clients, their employees, family members, trustees and other fiduciaries, directors, and affiliates. RiversEdge maintains physical, procedural, and electronic safeguards to protect the privacy of every person whose nonpublic information we obtain or have access to. This Statement describes those safeguards.
What information does RiversEdge maintain or have access to?
In order to provide administration and recordkeeping services, RiversEdge collects and/or has access to account balances, investment strategies employed, shares of financial products owned, payment histories, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and beneficiary designations and information.
What do we do with the information?
The nonpublic personal information RiversEdge maintains is shared with financial product providers, trustees, other fiduciaries of clients, other agents, and such other parties (e.g. third-party record keeping system providers) necessary to further the objectives of our clients and potential clients. The financial product providers are required by both federal and state law to maintain strict privacy policies. Trustees and fiduciaries are bound by law and their direct fiduciary relationship with the client to safeguard nonpublic personal information. Agents and our administration system vendors are under contract with RiversEdge to safeguard nonpublic personal information to the same degree as if it were maintained at RiversEdge. RiversEdge does not provide such information to any entity other than those which need to know such information to provide the requested services.
How do we safeguard nonpublic personal information internally?
RiversEdge maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect nonpublic personal information. Such information may be stored in either hard copy or electronic format (or both).
Certain records are stored in print and are maintained either in lockable filing cabinets located within the secure premises of RiversEdge's offices or, if dated, in a controlled access storage facility near RiversEdge's offices.
Information is stored on a Local Area Network, accessible only by RiversEdge employees. Access to the LAN is password protected. A firewall is maintained, preventing access through the internet. Remote access to the LAN is permitted to select RiversEdge employees only, and is double password protected. Information submitted to RiversEdge via RiversEdge's website is encrypted to protect it from interception by a third party. The Personal Identification Numbers and user sign-on protocol also ensures that the information provided remains secure.
All RiversEdge employees are prohibited from disclosing nonpublic personal information to any third party except in furtherance of client and potential client goals on a need-to-know basis. Training is conducted with all new employees stressing the importance of safeguarding nonpublic personal information. Standard RiversEdge procedures include: (1) sharing information internally with other RiversEdge employees only on a need-to-know basis; (2) keeping nonpublic personal information in closed files when not physically working with it; (3) logging off the LAN whenever leaving their workspace for more than one hour.
