How We Use Your Information That We Collect

Any and all nonpublic personal information that we receive with respect to our clients who are natural persons is not shared with nonaffiliated third parties without prior notice to, and consent of, such clients, unless otherwise required by law.  In the normal course of business, we may disclose the kinds of nonpublic personal information listed above to nonaffiliated third party service providers involved in servicing and administering products and services on our behalf.  Our service providers include, but are not limited to, our administrator, our auditors and our legal advisor.  Additionally, we may disclose such nonpublic personal information as required by law (such as to respond to a subpoena) or to satisfy a request from a regulator and/or to prevent fraud.  Without limiting the foregoing, we may disclose nonpublic personal information about you to governmental entities and others in connection with meeting our obligations to prevent money laundering including, without limitation, the disclosure that may be required by the Uniting and Strengthening America Act by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA PATRIOT) Act of 2001 and the regulations promulgated thereunder.  In addition, if we choose to dispose of our clients’ nonpublic personal information that we are not legally bound to maintain, then we will do so in a manner that reasonably protects such information from unauthorized access.  The same privacy policy also applies to former clients who are natural persons.

disclosure of business continuity plan

WorthyNest® LLC (“WN”) has developed a Business Continuity Plan to respond to events that significantly disrupt business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, the company will be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, the following constitutes the company business continuity plan.

Contacting Us

If after a significant business disruption you cannot contact the company as you usually do at (636) 344-0415 or deb@worthynest.com, please go to the WN website or Facebook page for updates.

 

Our Business Continuity Plan

WN plans to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm’s books and records, and allowing customers to transact business. In short, the business continuity plan is designed to permit the firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption. 

The business continuity plan addresses: data backup and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counter-party impact; and regulatory reporting.

In the event of a significant business disruption, clients will need to contact their individual broker/dealer/custodian regarding the execution, comparison, allocation, clearance and settlement of securities transactions, maintenance of customer accounts, access to customer accounts and the delivery of funds and securities. 

WN maintains backup records locally and external to the main office. While every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption, the objective is to restore operations and be able to complete existing and accept new engagements within one to two business days.   

 

Varying Disruptions

Significant business disruptions can vary in their scope.  Examples include disruptions to only the company, a single office, the local business district, the county, or the whole region. Within each of these areas, the severity of the disruption can also vary from minimal to severe. In a disruption to only the company or a single office, the company will transfer operations to a local site as needed and expect to recover and resume business within one business day. In a disruption affecting our business district, county, or region, the company will transfer operations to a site outside of the affected area, and recover and resume business within two business days. In either situation, the company plans to continue in business and notify you through the WN Facebook page and/or website how to contact us. If the significant business disruption is so severe that it prevents the company from remaining in business, provisions have been made to assure a refund of funds paid for services not yet rendered.
