We limit the use of your personal information.

Providing our Services:  When you use our Services, the information (AFI) you choose to provide will be used to develop and deliver financial planning information that is as relevant to you, as possible.  Based upon the information you provide, we may also highlight third party services we select that may be relevant to your financial goals.
