We do not sell or share your personal data with third parties for their marketing or solicitation purposes. We do not use IP addresses or web page request information to try and identify you (nor do we disclose that information to third parties for them to use for their own purposes—although we do use third parties for our internal analytics purposes and retargeting for marketing).

Third parties, including your current employer, may request that limitations be placed on your participation in the Network of Advisors arising from duties you may owe to them.
