Confidentiality Statement

 

We respect customer privacy.

Maejean Vintage is committed to safeguarding the confidential information of our clients. We hold all of our clients’ personal information in strict confidence and in accordance with USPAP and NAJA ethics standards. Our files include information collected from clients in connection with the personal property appraisal services provided by our company. At no time in the past have we ever disclosed information to third parties, except as specifically authorized by our clients, or as required by law, and we do not anticipate doing so in the future. We are prohibited by federal law, USPAP, and the NAJA Code of Ethics from changing our policy without first advising the client and obtaining consent. We use the personal property information provided by our clients to meet their appraisal requests, while guarding against any real or perceived infringements of their rights of privacy.

Our policy with respect to personal information about our clients is as follows:

We limit employee and agent access to information only to those who have a business or professional reason to know, and only to non-affiliated parties as required by law.

We maintain a secure office & computer environment to ensure that your information is not placed at unreasonable risk.

The categories of non-public personal information that we collect from a client depend upon the scope of the clients’ appraisal engagement. This includes information about personal property assets, information about tax identification numbers, and other non-public information necessary. Additionally, it may include information about transactions between clients and third parties, and information from third party sources.

Unaffiliated third parties that require access to our clients’ personal information, such as Federal & State tax regulators may only review company records as permitted under the law.

We do not provide client information to mailing list vendors or solicitors for any reason whatsoever.

Personally identifiable information will be maintained during the time a client is a client of the company and for the appropriate time thereafter that such records are required to be maintained by USPAP, and consistent with the NAJA Code of Ethics.
