During the course of an engagement, we collect nonpublic personal information about the parties to this engagement that is provided to us by the party or obtained by us with authorization. We do not disclose any nonpublic personal information obtained in the course of our practice except as required or permitted by law. Permitted disclosures include providing information to our employees, and in limited situations, to unrelated third parties who need to know that information to assist us in providing services. In all such situations, we stress the confidential nature of information being shared. Under Kansas law, if you provide us with information which you identify as confidential pursuant to a professional engagement with us, we are not permitted to disclose that information without consent, except in response to a court proceeding, to the board of accountancy of a state in which Vianello Forensic Consulting, LLC, its members, or its employees are licensed, or in the course of peer review of our firm.
We retain records relating to professional services that we provide so that we are better able to assist with any future professional needs and, in some cases, to comply with professional guidelines. In order to guard your nonpublic personal information, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with our professional standards.
