  • Personal details like name, address, and contact information.
  • Financial information relevant to the provision of accounting and bookkeeping services.

We do not sell, rent, or lease your personal information to third parties. Your information may be shared with our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that need to know it to provide services on our behalf or process it for us and have agreed not to disclose it to others.

We may also disclose your information when required by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with legal processes, protect our rights or property, or ensure the safety of our clients or the public.
