We do not collect any personally identifiable information from anyone who is merely visiting or browsing our websites; however, personal information may be obtained from visitors who choose to send us e-mail messages with inquiries regarding our company and its products and services.
Centerstone generally has an obligation to maintain the confidentiality of your account information pursuant to regulatory requirements. Our Code of Ethics directs Centerstone’s employees regarding the permitted and restricted uses of account names and non-public information. Within Centerstone, access to information about your account is restricted to those employees who need to know the information to service your account. Employees are trained to follow our procedures to protect your privacy and are instructed to access information about you only when they have a business reason to obtain it. Centerstone uses physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to keep your information secure.
Account information shared outside of Centerstone may be shared with third-party investment advisers, consultants or other financial intermediaries authorized by you to receive this information on your behalf. Account information may also be provided to a broker-dealer or other business party required for the purpose of transacting for, servicing or maintaining your account. Our third party relationships use account information only to perform the services for which they have been hired, and are not permitted to use or disclose that information for any other purpose.
