SECURITY POLICY

FINANCIAL PEOPLE LTD and all of its subsidiaries and affiliates, (collectively referred to as “Financial People, We, Us, Our”) is dedicated to providing a website that allows clients to access to information about our services. This Security Policy defines the standards implemented for the purposes of protecting the information that clients may provide while accessing the website. There are several terms clients should be familiar with as you read this policy:

Protected: The term “Protected” is used to describe a website (and/or an area of a website) for which a consent form must be completed before accessing. It is important to remember that a protected site is not necessarily a secure site.

Cookies: Cookies are minuscule data files that may be placed on the hard drive of a user upon visiting a website. These files enable the website to identify repeat visitors and may allow the website to customize the website depending on the preferences of the user. Cookies will not affect the performance of your computer.

Specific Financial People standards with regard to personally identifiable non-public information are as follows:
Use of Cookies: Financial People may, from time to time or on a continuous basis, use cookies when users enter our website. The use of cookies allows us to identify the user, observe which sections of the website are visited, and gain insight into the areas of the website are most frequently used. This allows us to tailor the website to individual needs of our clients. The cookies used in the protected areas of the site will reside on the user’s computer.

A temporary cookie may also be used on protected and unprotected sections of our site in order to relay information that is input on one page of the site by the shareholder to other areas that require the same information (e.g. different financial calculators). This relieves the user of having to input the same data on multiple pages. Temporary cookies will not be placed on the computer hard drive of a user, and will be used only during the current session; they are discarded once the user terminates their session. Cookies are activated only during visits to Financial People’s website and do not track activity once a user leaves the website.

Usage: We obtain statistical data relating to usage of all areas of the website; however, personal information is not gathered in these areas unless the user specifically inputs data that the user wishes Financial People to have.
