Who we are
Our website address is: https://randallbcpa.com. Our website is hosted on a U.S based server owned and operated by godaddy.com and built in WordPress.
What personal website data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
We collect information about visitors who comment on Sites that use our Akismet anti-spam service. The information we collect depends on how the User sets up Akismet for the Site, but typically includes the commenter’s IP address, user agent, referrer, and Site URL (along with other information directly provided by the commenter such as their name, username, email address, and the comment itself).
Information you provide in contact forms is collected and stored on our server and used to contact you about our services. We do not add visitors’ contact information to email subscription lists without the visitor’s permission. We do not sell contact information. We do not share your contract information with third parties, except when you request referral or to facilitate a specific service, and then, only if you agree to the sharing of your contact information.
If you leave a comment on our site, you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
By default, WordPress does not collect any analytics data. However, anonymous analytics data may be collected for aggregate tracking purposes, such as visitor country of origin, visit length, and number of pages viewed. Such data is not linked to individually identified visitors.
Who we share your data with
By default, WordPress does not share any personal data with anyone. Your website visitation data is not sold or marketed to any third parties.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Your contact information
If you request contact through our contact form, we maintain this contact information indefinitely. We do not sell or market any data we collect or share such data with third parties.
How we protect your data
Your tax returns are prepared online using Intuit’s ProConnect platform. Intuit uses state-of-the-art technology to protect its servers and data against data breaches. Other information you provide is stored on our local server which uses two separate malware and intrusion detection tools. We do not store your credit card information on any payments we collect. Such payments are processed through a third-party banking site online only and no card data is collected on the firm’s website, stored on our server or by other means in our office,
What data breach procedures we have in place
Should we have a data breach, we will inform you directly as soon as practical after such breach is detected. Such communication will be made by phone or email and will include details of any breach and suggested actions you should take to protect your identity or other sensitive information.
Tax return data
Your tax return data may be shared with Intuit, the tax preparation software provider, to the extent necessary to provide this service to you. Financial statements and related data used to undertake our Attest and Financial Statement Preparation services may be shared with our Peer Review firm or other outside reviewer for quality assurance and professional standards compliance purposes. Absent a validly enforceable subpoena or records request arising from an audit by the taxing authorities, we do not share your tax information with any third parties without your express written consent.
