Privacy Promise for Clients
While information is the cornerstone of our ability to provide superior service, our most important asset is our clients’ trust. Keeping client information secure and using it only as our clients would want us to, is a top priority for all of us at M4T/FDCI. Here then, is our promise to our individual clients.
- We will safeguard, according to strict standards of security and confidentiality, any information our clients share with us.

- We will not reveal client information to any external organization unless we have previously informed the client in disclosures or agreements, have been authorized by the client or are required by law or our regulators.
- We will always maintain control over the confidentiality of our client information. We may, however, facilitate relevant offers from reputable companies.

- Whenever we hire other organizations to provide support services, we will require them to conform to our privacy standards and to allow us to audit them for compliance.
- We will not use or share – internally or externally – personally identifiable medical information for any purpose other than the underwriting or administration of a client’s policy, claim or account, or as disclosed to the client when the information is collected, or to which the client consents.
