Any arrangements between Lestna Retirement and other companies and independent contractors will be subject to confidentiality agreements.
How We Protect Your Personal Information
Your privacy is very important to us. To ensure security and confidentiality, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect your confidential personal information. Within the firm, we limit access to clients' information only to personnel that need to know that information in order to perform its business functions and duties. Each employee and service provider we may hire is required to sign a Confidentiality Agreement and is instructed not to discuss and share clients' information with anyone unless they are authorized in writing by client to do so.
We make every effort to safeguard your Personal Data from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure, or destruction. However, no internet, email, or electronic operating system that enables data transmission is completely secure or without error, so please exercise caution when determining which information to send us through these channels.
