WHAT DOES 10,001 HOURS DO WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION?

Why?

Federal law gives consumers the right to limit some but not all sharing. Federal law also requires us to tell you how we collect, share, and protect your personal information. Please read this notice carefully to understand what we do.

What?

The types of personal information we collect and share depend on the product or service you have with us.

How?

Most financial companies need to share customers’ personal information among employees and affiliates to run their everyday business.

Reasons 10,001 Hours can share your personal information:

  • For our everyday business purposes—such as to process transactions, maintain your account(s), perform work and supporting work for which we were hired, strategize with other non-affliliated trusted advisors with whom you’ve granted us permission to collaborate.
  • 10,001 Hours must comply with any court orders.
  • For our affiliates’ (Benchmark Business Group) everyday business purposes-information about your transactions and experiences.
