Security of Information

Windham is committed to keeping your nonpublic information secure, and restricts access to client information only to those employees and third parties who need to know such information in order to provide financial products or services. Windham maintains physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to ensure that all client information remains secure. It is Windham’s policy to work only with third parties who treat nonpublic personal information with the same level of importance that Windham does.

How Personal Data is Shared  

We may share your information with our trusted third party service providers, including such technology providers as website and mailing list hosting services. In sharing information with service providers, we ensure that your data is kept secured and used only in accordance with this Policy.

We reserve the right to disclose Personal Data if required by law or if we reasonably believe that use or disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with judicial or regulatory proceedings, a court order or other legal process.

California’s “Shine The Light” law permits California residents to annually request and obtain information free of charge about what personal information is disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year.  Windham does not distribute your personal information to outside parties for their direct marketing.

Security

The safety of your Personal Data is important to us. The Firm uses various technical and organizational measures to ensure that your data is secure. These measures include encryption and intrusion detection and prevention technologies. However, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure and while we take appropriate measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data.


How long Personal Data is retained

We only retain Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and processed, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, accounting or reporting requirements.

We will delete your Personal Data when it is no longer reasonably required for the permitted uses or you withdraw your consent (where applicable), provided that we are not legally required or otherwise permitted to continue to hold such data. We may retain your Personal Data for an additional period to the extent deletion would require us to overwrite our automated disaster recovery backup systems or to the extent we deem it necessary to assert or defend legal claims during any relevant retention period.
