6. Employee Access and Information Usage:
An important part of our employee orientation program is the emphasis we place on customer confidentiality. All of our employees are aware of their responsibility with respect to customer information and undergo background searches and annual information security compliance training. Only such employees are authorized to access customer information. We strive to restrict access to your personal and account information to those employees who need to know that information to provide products or services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards designed to comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information.
7. Accuracy of Information:
We are committed to maintaining complete and accurate information about our customers, and we use reasonable measures to ensure the accuracy, timeliness, and thoroughness of this information.

We will take prompt action to make the appropriate corrections and to notify anyone with whom we may have shared inaccurate information.
1. The security of your personal information is important to us. We follow generally accepted industry and professional standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once we receive it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Web Site, you can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, contact us at email@example.com.

3. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that seek to comply with federal laws, rules & regulations to safeguard your nonpublic personal information.
9. Anti-Fraud, Wire Fraud Disclosure:
There is an increase in the incidence of cyber fraud and wire fraud in the real estate industry. Because electronic communications such as email, text messages and social media messaging, are neither secure nor confidential, any non-public or sensitive information should only be transmitted in a secure manner (e.g., encrypted e mail). While we have adopted policies and procedures to aid in avoiding fraud, even the best security protections can still be bypassed by unauthorized parties. We will never send you any electronic communication with instructions to transfer funds or to provide nonpublic personal information, such as credit card or debit numbers or bank account and/or routing numbers.
AS A GENERAL RULE, YOU SHOULD NEVER TRANSMIT NONPUBLIC PERSONAL INFORMATION, SUCH AS CREDIT OR DEBIT CARD NUMBERS OR BANK ACCOUNT OR ROUTING NUMBERS, BY REGULAR UNENCRYPTED EMAIL OR OTHER UNSECURED ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION. BE ADVISED, EMAILS ATTEMPTING TO INDUCE FRAUDULENT WIRE TRANSFERS ARE COMMON AND MAY APPEAR TO COME FROM A TRUSTED SOURCE.
If you receive any electronic communication directing you to transfer funds or provide nonpublic personal information, EVEN IF THAT ELECTRONIC COMMUNICATION APPEARS TO BE FROM us, do not respond to it and immediately contact us at the number you have previously used for our firm (212 344-0200). Such requests, even if they may otherwise appear to be from us, are likely part of a scheme to defraud you by stealing funds from you or using your identity to commit a crime.
To notify us of suspected fraud related to your real estate transaction, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 212 344 0200.
