Privacy Policy

Summit Financial Corporation’s primary client goal is to protect your privacy.

To conduct regular business, we may collect nonpublic personal information from the following sources:

  • Information we receive from your employer on annual package requests and employee census reports
  • Information about your transactions from brokerage statements
  • Information we receive from third parties and
  • Information we receive from you on enrollment forms, loan applications or claim forms

"Nonpublic personal information" is nonpublic information about you that we obtain in connection with providing administration services for your retirement plan, plan, health insurance, or COBRA coverage.

Summit has established and maintains procedures to protect the confidentiality, security and integrity of Personal Information of our clients which we possess in the normal course of our business. Our security measures are designed to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control.

Effective March 1, 2010, Massachusetts law mandates certain standards for the protection of personal information and compliance with 201 CMR 17.00, Standards for the Protection of Personal Information of Residents of the Commonwealth. As a result the following has been adopted by Summit to insure the protection of personal information in both paper and electronic records:

  • Written Information Security Program (WISP) established
  • Designated/Assigned Owner to maintain and manage WISP performance
  • Secured authentication protocols, including password and "need to know" basis
  • Data encryption procedures established for both public networks, laptops and other portable devices
  • Records and data containing personal information secured in locked storage area or containers
  • Established training for employees and compliance monitoring

Based on the above compliance measures, we believe that our program is designed to protect our clients' personal and business information as defined in Massachusetts regulations and we have provided this information to help you better understand and manage your own personal information. Please note our WISP does not discharge the responsibility of our clients to individually meet their applicable security requirements under the standards.

If you have further questions or concerns regarding our personal information compliance program, please contact Brian Babcock at or 781-229-9500.
