Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We want you to understand what information we collect and how we use it. We collect and use “sensitive information” to provide our clients with sufficient information to decide if a prospective buyer is financially and otherwise qualified to engage in the purchase of their business. It is imperative that certain “sensitive information” be made available to our clients so they can i) generally inform themselves concerning the nature of the prospective buyer’s interest, ii) determine whether or not they wish to divulge their sensitive business information to the prospective buyer, and iii) verify the information they have received about the prospective buyer. We will not provide any “sensitive information” to anyone other than our client and their respective legal and financial advisors. Those “advisors” are typically bound by codes of ethics of their respective professions with respect to information received.
“Sensitive information” may include, but is not always limited to, tax returns, financial statements, previous employment information, credit scores, licenses held, business interests held, personal debt, and information about real property owned by the prospective buyer. It is our policy to supply any of this information to our client and their advisors, so they may determine the likely qualification and competency of the interested party to purchase their business.
