Wealth Advisors Trust Company values the importance of protecting the privacy of our website visitors, clients visiting our website and clients using our various trustee services. Protecting the privacy of our website visitors and our customers is fundamental to the way we conduct business, whether over electronic or in person methods. We do our best to provide website and other related safeguards by maintaining physical, electronic, and/or procedural processes.
In order for us to fulfill the duties our trust beneficiary/trust protector/grantor/individual trustee clients have hired us to do, we need to collect certain personal identifying information (e.g. name, address, social security number, etc.) from information provided by either our customers and/or an advisor to provide us with information. This information could be communicated by various means (electronic, telephone, written or in person). Information also collected may be a trust’s tax return, custodial statements/transactions, trust/Will documents etc. For website visitors we also gather data on the activity performed on the website.
Information on any client/beneficiary of a trust(s) is not disclosed from what we have collected on anyone, except: (i) making our services better for the client/beneficiary of a trust(s) and then only to those person(s) or entity(s) providing the services authorized (such as broker-dealers, custodians, independent managers etc.); (ii) to person(s) assessing our compliance with industry standards (e.g., regulators, etc.); (iii) attorneys, accountants, and auditors that we hire as our agent(s); or (iv) as mandated by the federal and/or state law.

We maintain physical, electronic and/or procedural safeguards that comply with applicable guidelines.
