PRIVACY POLICY - MMWKM ADVISORS, LLC

MMWKM Advisors, LLC (“MMWKM”) has adopted this privacy policy with recognition that protecting the privacy and security of the personal information we collect from you is an important responsibility. To provide services to you in an accurate and efficient manner, we must collect and maintain certain personal information about you. We want you to know what information we collect and how we use and safeguard that information.

Information We Collect: We collect certain nonpublic personal information about you (“Personal Information”). The essential purpose for collecting Personal Information is to allow us to provide advisory services to you. Personal Information we collect may include:

  • Information that you provide on applications or other forms. This Personal Information may include personal and household information such as income, spending habits, investment objectives, financial goals, statements of account, and other records concerning your financial condition and assets, together with information concerning employee benefits and retirement plan interests, wills, trusts, mortgages and tax returns.
  • Identifying information such as your name, age, address, social security number, etc.
  • Information about your transactions with us, or others (e.g. broker/dealers, clearing firms, or other chosen investment sponsors).
  • Information we receive from consumer reporting agencies (e.g. credit bureaus), as well as other various materials we may use to provide an appropriate recommendation or to fill a service request.

Accuracy of Personal Information: We will endeavor to ensure your Personal Information is kept accurate, complete, up to date and relevant. Please let us know if any of your details change. If you feel your Personal Information is not accurate, complete or up to date, please notify us and we will take reasonable steps to ensure it is corrected. You can contact us using the details listed below.

Data Security: We restrict access to Personal Information to those representatives and employees who need the information to perform their job responsibilities within our Firm. We maintain agreements, as well as physical, electronic, and procedural securities measures that comply with federal regulations to safeguard Personal Information about you.

As https://www.moneymatters.net (our “Website”) is linked to the Internet, and the Internet is inherently insecure, we cannot provide any assurance regarding the security of transmission of information you communicate to us online. We also cannot guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. Accordingly, any Personal Information or other information which you transmit to us online is transmitted at your own risk.

Information We Disclose to Unaffiliated Third Parties: As a rule, we do not disclose your Personal Information we collect to unaffiliated firms or individuals. However, because we rely on certain unaffiliated third parties for services that enable us to provide our advisory services to you, such as our attorneys, other consultants, brokers, and custodians who, in the ordinary course of providing their services to us, may require access to your information, it may be necessary to share Personal Information with certain third parties. Certain of these unaffiliated third parties may interact directly with you in connection with the selling of insurance or other products.

Information We Disclose to Affiliated Third Parties: We will disclose your Personal Information we collect in each of the categories listed above to Moraif Financial Group, Inc. (“MFG”), an affiliated licensed insurance agency. We share office space with MGF and we share the same computer system; therefore, staff members of both entities have access to your Personal Information. MFG is limited in its reuse and re-disclosure of your Personal Information in the same way that MMWKM is limited, and as described in this Privacy Notice.

Former Clients: If you decide to close your account(s) or become an inactive customer, we will adhere to our privacy policies, which may be amended from time to time.

Cookies: We may use “cookies” to help us tailor our Website to better suit your needs (for example, we may use cookies to enable us to save any personal preferences indicated by you) and to provide a more effective route to various components of our Website.

Cookies are small text files that are stored in your computer’s memory and hard drive when you visit certain web pages. They are used to enable Websites to function or to provide information to the owners of a Website.

We use cookies on this Website for the following purposes:

  • Analytical purposes: Analytical cookies allow us to recognize, measure and track visitors to our Website. This helps us to improve and develop the way our Website works, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of the site that are of the most interest to them.
  • Usage preferences: Some of the cookies on our Website are activated when visitors to our sites make a choice about their usage of the site. Our Website then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows us to tailor aspects of the site to the individual user.
  • Terms and conditions: We use cookies on our Website to record when a site visitor has seen a policy, such as this one, or provided consent, such as consent to the terms and conditions on our Website. This helps to improve the user’s experience of our Website – for example, it avoids a user from repeatedly being asked to consent to the same terms.
  • Session management: The software that runs our Website uses cookies for technical purposes needed by the internal workings of our servers. For instance, we use cookies to distribute requests among multiple servers, authenticate users and determine what features of the site they can access, verify the origin of requests, keep track of information about a user’s session and determine which options or pages to display in order for the site to function.
  • Functional purposes: Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by our applications to process and operate. For example, where transactions or requests within an application involve multiple workflow stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, in order to facilitate completion of the overall transaction or request.
  • Third party cookies. When you visit our Website, you may receive cookies that are set by third parties. These cookies are used for the purposes described in the bullet points above. We do not control the setting of these third party cookies, so we suggest you might wish to check the third party Websites for more information about their use of cookies and how to manage them.
  • Amending Internet browser settings to disable cookies. You can configure your browser to send accept all cookies, reject all cookies, notify you when a cookie is set, or delete cookies that have already been set. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, although in that case you may not be able to use certain features on our Website. In addition, a number of companies offer utilities designed to help you visit Websites anonymously.
