To Our Service Providers: We use service providers who may need access to your personal data to do work for us. They’re contractually required to treat the personal data we provide as confidential and to use it only to provide the services we requested. Examples of the service providers we engage include print, mail, or email vendors, web hosting vendors, professional software and development services consultants, and cloud service providers.
In a Business Transfer or Transaction: We may disclose or transfer personal data about you as part of a corporate business transaction, like a merger or acquisition, divestiture, sale of company assets, or in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership.

Instances When We Are Required: We may disclose personal information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; to protect the rights, property, or safety of Physicians Financial Services, our clients, or others.
HOW YOUR INFORMATION IS PROTECTED
The privacy and protection of your personal information is vitally important to us. Our site uses a secure server (SSL) to encrypt all of your personal information. We use strong security measures to prevent the loss, misuse, and alteration of your information once it is in our records. Your access to some services and content is password protected for security purposes.
Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100-percent secure. Accordingly, despite our efforts to protect your personal information, Physicians Financial Services . cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us, or our online products or services. However, once we receive your transmission, we make every effort to ensure its security on our systems.
Links to Other Sites: This website may contain links to other third-party sites. We take steps to link only to sites that share our high standards and respect for privacy. However, we are not responsible for the privacy standards and practices of third parties. Physicians Financial Services strives to keep online visitor information secure against unauthorized access and use.
Child Privacy: Physicians Financial Services does not intend to collect personally identifiable information from children under age 13 without permission of the child’s parent or legal guardian. Children under the age of 13 should submit personally identifiable information to Physicians Financial Services, only with the explicit permission of their parent or legal guardian. Where appropriate, Physicians Financial Services will instruct children not to submit personal information. If your child has submitted personal information and you would like it to be removed, you may do so by contacting us.
In accordance with California law, we will not share information we collect about you with nonaffiliates, except as allowed by law. For example, we may share information with your consent or to service any of your applicable accounts. Among our affiliates, we will limit information sharing to the extent required by California law. We do not sell personal information.
California law entitles residents to ask us for a notice describing what categories of personal information we share with third parties for the third parties’ direct marketing purposes. Unless you request us to or consent to our doing so, Physicians Financial Services does not sell any personal information to third parties for their own direct marketing purposes
California Do Not Track Disclosures
Enabling “Do Not Track” in your browser setting means that a request will be included with your browsing traffic. Because there is no universal standard of how to apply the that setting, we currently do not honor them.
California law also provides residents with rights to access to and deletion of certain personal information, to know whether personal information is shared, and to opt out of the “sale” of personal information. Some California laws also may define “personal information” differently from this Policy.
To understand how we honor these California rights, to make requests regarding these rights, and to learn more about how California law defines “personal information,” you may find more information here: (https://oag.ca.gov/privacy/ccpa)
