Johnson Investment Counsel and our affiliates collect and maintain your personal information so that we can better provide investment management and trust services. The types and categories of information that we collect and maintain about you include:
- Information we receive from you to open an account or provide investment advice and trust services, such as your home address, telephone number, and financial information

In order for us to provide investment management and trust services to you, it is sometimes necessary for us to disclose your personal information to outside sources (e.g., brokers, custodians, regulators, and tax return preparers).
To fulfill our privacy commitment at Johnson Investment Counsel, we have instituted firm-wide practices to safeguard the information that we maintain about you. These include:

At Johnson Investment Counsel, we value your privacy.
We employ the following practices and policies in order to protect your privacy and secure your information:
- Where applicable, particularly in the registration and account access portions of our site, we use 256-bit Secure Socket Layers encryption to encrypt the data sent from our web server to you.
- You are able to choose your own password, known only to you.
- Your accounts will not be made available online unless specifically requested.
- When visitors request access to accounts, they must be verified by a representative of Johnson Private Client Group, Johnson Trust Company, Johnson Institutional Management, or Johnson Mutual Funds. When questions arise as to the actual identity of a visitor requesting access to an account, the representative will contact the account’s owner to verify the visitor’s right to view the account. Access to an account will be denied until it is made available by one of our representatives.
- A visitor has three chances to enter a valid password. After three bad attempts, the account will be locked out and no access will be granted until we reset the account and allow the visitor back in.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
