The COAC™ is committed to safeguarding the privacy of our members. Be assured that your private information is kept strictly confidential and will not be released to anyone without your permission, unless required under law or litigation.
How do we collect private information?
The information we collect may be obtained in several ways: via e-mail or U.S. postal mail, telephonically or in person. We may also obtain information when an online form or advisor membership application is filled out.
COAC™ members’ personal data will never be disclosed to or shared with third-parties not involved in the cashing out process without prior consent, except when required under law or litigation, such as when responding to a subpoena.
What measures are taken to protect private information?
We have electronic, physical and procedural safeguards in place to protect your personal data. Once your membership application has been received and processed, your information will be stored and secured on password-protected computer systems. Access to this information is granted and given only to the COAC™ Membership Committee.
*Please note that we cannot be responsible for the security of any information sent to us via e-mail. Although our e-mail servers use encryption technology, e-mails sent to us may have gone through numerous servers that are not protected. We therefore advise against sending any private information via e-mail.
