We do not disclose personal information to third parties with the following exceptions:

- We may disclose or report personal information in limited circumstances where we believe in good faith that disclosure is required or permitted under law. For example, to cooperate with regulators or law enforcement authorities, resolve consumer disputes, perform credit/authentication checks, or for institutional risk control.
Outside of these exceptions, we will not share your personal information with third parties unless you have specifically asked us to do so.
We protect the confidentiality and security of your personal information.

Written Electronic Communications
E-mail is a convenient form of communication. However, it should not be considered completely secure nor should it be considered completely private. If clients wish to communicate with us by e-mail, they must adhere to the following security measures:
- Never disclose sensitive personal information such as account number, tax identification number, Social Security number, date of birth, etc.
- DWA will not request or disclose your personal account information in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail communication.
- If you receive an e-mail warning you that an account of yours will be closed unless you confirm account information, do not respond or click on any link contained in the e-mail. Instead, contact us directly at 800-990-1117.
- Contact us directly at 800-990-1117 for time sensitive requests such as securities transfers or transactions, or cash withdrawals or transfers.
We have established a client portal system for secure exchange of written communication between clients and DWA. All clients have or will be invited to open a secure client portal with DWA and are strongly encouraged to do so. Clients will receive email notification from DWA when communications are placed in client portals, and DWA will similarly receive email notification of written communication placed in the portal by clients.
Although never completely secure, email is useful for establishing meeting dates and discussing general matters regarding account activity; however, we strongly suggest that sensitive account matters be handled by telephone, letter, or written communications placed in client portals.
