Some portions of this website may require you to give us personally identifiable information such as your name, job title, company, physical mailing address, e-mail address, telephone and fax numbers (Personal Information). If you communicate with us by e-mail, post messages to any of our social media groups, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys or contest entries, any information provided in such communications may be collected as Personal Information.

If you receive relevant newsletters from Sherwood Tax and Accounting PC’s publications and do not opt-out of these communications, we may decide to send you related promotional emails from time to time that we deem relevant to you.

We may supplement information you give us with information from other sources, such as information to validate or update your contact information. We use this information to help us maintain the accuracy of the information we collect, to target our communications so that we can inform you of business updates that may be of interest to you.

If you elect to provide us Personal Information, or submit Financial Information, we use that information primarily to provide a business service for you. We keep this information confidential and do not share without your permission.

Information Sharing  We take very seriously our responsibility to maintain your privacy with respect to your personally identifiable information. We will share that information only in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.

Except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your Personal Information and your Financial Information private and will not share it with third parties, unless such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with a court order or other legal process; (b) protect our rights or property; or (c) enforce our terms of service.

Security and Encryption  This website takes commercially reasonable precautions to protect your information. When appropriate, we use SSL encryption technology and a secure server to encrypt information transmitted between your browsers and our server.

Subscribers can review or change online subscription at any time.

We urge you to keep your ShareFile online password in a safe place and not to divulge it to anyone.
