Our Commitment to your Privacy 

As a client or prospective client of Mariner Independent Advisor Network, LLC (the “Firm”), you share both personal and financial information with us. Your privacy is important to us, and we are dedicated to safeguarding your personal and financial information.

  • Personal identity such as name, address and Social security number;
  • Information regarding securities transactions effected by us or others;
  • Information reported on applications or other forms provided by the client, including but not limited to net worth, assets, income, accounts and balances; and
  • Information developed as part of financial plans, analysis and other advisory services.

How We Manage and Protect Your Personal Information

In order to protect current, prospective and former clients’ nonpublic, personal information, we maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. The Firm also limits access to personal information to individuals who need to know that information in order to service your account and provides training to its employees on proper handling of personal information.

Our Privacy Policy restricts the use of your information and requires that it be held in strict confidence. Specifically:

  • We do not share any of the above referenced non-public personal information about current, prospective and/or former clients to third parties, other than to our affiliates for everyday business purposes (but not information about your creditworthiness), nor is it our practice to disclose such information to third parties unless necessary to administer, manage, service, and provide related services for client accounts, to offer our products and services to you through marketing, or as permitted to do so by law.
  • In the event we deem it necessary to share information with outside companies that perform administrative or marketing services for the Firm, our contractual arrangements with these service providers require them to treat current, prospective and/or former client information as confidential and to not use it for any purpose beyond the scope of the agreement.
  • Except as otherwise stated above, we will only release non-public personal information if a client or client representative directs us to do so, or if we are compelled by law to disclose personal information, such as to government entities, credit bureaus or in response to subpoenas.
  • We will not share your non-public personal information with a non-affiliate for purposes of the non-affiliate to market to you, unless your financial advisor leaves the Firm, retires or sells his or her practice.

In situations where a financial institution does disclose customer information to nonaffiliates, other than permitted or required by law, customers must be given the opportunity to opt out or prevent such disclosure. As described herein, the Firm does not share or disclose current, prospective and/or former clients’ nonpublic, personal information to nonaffiliates except where permitted or required by law.
