We will use reasonable efforts to allow you to review, correct or update the information that you have provided to us at any time.

We use a number of unaffiliated social media sites, including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and LinkedIn to share product and service information, thought leadership material, news, events and career information. A list of these accounts can be found below.
Social Media pages are typically public and can show up in search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing. Because our social media sites are public and anyone with an account can engage with us, we cannot be responsible for views expressed other than our own.
We reserve the right to prohibit posting on our social media pages, as well as the right to delete or edit any posted content or material for any reason and without notice. Any posting on these pages is subject to our policies of usage, as we may change them from time to time. We prohibit postings about securities products, investment recommendations, investment product performance, and client testimonials. In addition, we prohibit the posting of offensive, derogatory, inflammatory or illegal comments and statements.
We reserve the right to block or remove objectionable content and users if possible, in our sole discretion and without notice. Any delay in removing or failure to remove an objectionable posting should not be deemed an endorsement or approval of the posting, and does not preclude us from taking other steps to address objectionable content, particularly where a social media website restricts us from removing content or blocking users. If a follower forwards our posts and adds comments, such comments are the view and responsibility of the follower, and we expressly disclaim any responsibility over such communication.
