Elm Terrace Gardens Technical Support Request

Computer Recycling Program

In an effort to support our environment, provide our Customers with a cost effective, easy way to dispose of their unused computer equipment and comply with local equipment disposal laws, we are announcing a new computer equipment recycling program. Here’s how it works:

At your request, we will recycle your used computer equipment for you. Computers will have their hard drives rendered inoperable (so that there is no possibility of anyone extracting data from them). We will then transport your equipment to a certified computer equipment recycling center for proper disposal.

To encourage as much participation in this program as possible, we are keeping the fee for this service to a minimum. To have your computers recycled, simply:

  1. Complete the form below, indicating the quantity of each item to be recycled
  2. Drop your equipment off at our office (along with this form), or give your equipment to one of our staff persons when they are at your office for another engagement
  3. We will send you an invoice for the service fee

Computer Solutions

We take the worry out of your computer system management. From cyber threat management to data back-up, we work with you to address your concerns and make sure your systems are working for you.

Your Priorities Are Our Priorities

“You are not a priority.” As a small business owner who is seeking to grow your customer base and serve your current customers well, we expect you would never dream of saying this to your customers. It is certainly not our practice to respond this way when a client asks for our assistance. And yet, many of us have had an experience in business where that message is communicated, if not by words then through the type of service provided (or not provided).

This year we are celebrating 30 years of striving to provide our customers with excellent service. Our entire team is committed to helping you grow your business and preserve your wealth. This is not to say we are the only perfect business around, no, no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. So, what sets us apart as a service provider? The way we provide our service, with honesty, integrity, and care. We care about our clients and that is evident in how we go about our daily activities.

We listen.
Have you ever contacted a company with a simple question, one that required a “yes” or “no” answer and instead were directed to the FAQ page of their website? We have, and we didn’t like how that felt. We listen to your concerns and do our best to provide the best possible customer experience.

We get answers.
We’ve all been there. You call a company with a question. After waiting on hold for an inordinate amount of time, the person who takes the call doesn’t have the answer you’re seeking. You get bounced to a few more representatives before getting the answer you need. Not here. With four business units to serve you, we will likely have the answer to your question. If we do not, we will take the time to research it and contact you.

We follow up.
You won’t get lost in the shuffle at Canon Capital. When you decide to start a business relationship with us, but perhaps won’t be ready to fully engage right away, that’s fine. We will make a note to follow up within your desired timeframe, at your convenience.

We care.
We’ve built our business on relationships built on mutual trust and respect, qualities that extend to how we treat our clients. This is not a special initiative; this is our normal way of doing business. We treat you the way we would like to be treated. You are our priority.

If you’re in need of accounting, payroll, IT/computer solutions, or wealth management services and are seeking a company that will look out for you, contact us. We’d love to talk about how we can be of service.

The Equifax Data Breach: What Does It Mean for You?

It appears we hear of new data breaches every day. From Arby’s to Saks Fifth Avenue, in 2017 alone there were 27 before the recent breach at Equifax. What differentiates Equifax from the other entities is that Equifax is one of the three largest credit agencies in the U.S. It is unsettling, to say the least, but there are steps you can take to protect your information:

Check to see if your information was compromised.

Equifax has set up a site dedicated to helping consumers determine if the breach has put their information at risk — www.equifaxsecurity2017.com — and is offering all consumers one free year of their TrustedID Premier program. They have also clarified the language in the terms of use that led to confusion regarding consumers’ right to file suit against Equifax with acceptance of this free service:

“The arbitration clause and class action waiver included in the TrustedID Premier Terms of Use apply to the free credit file monitoring and identity theft protection products, and not the cybersecurity incident.”

Always closely monitor your credit card statements.

If your information was compromised, call your credit card companies and inquire as to whether they recommend changing account numbers and/or issuing new cards.

Review your credit report.

AnnualCreditReport.com provides one free credit report per year.

Consider freezing your credit

The Federal Trade Commission has provided these guidelines regarding a credit freeze. A credit freeze does not:

  • Prevent you from getting your free annual credit report.
  • Keep you from opening a new account, applying for a job, renting an apartment, or buying insurance. However, if you are doing any of these, you will need to lift the freeze temporarily, either for a specific time or a specific party, say, a potential landlord or employer. The cost and lead times to lift a freeze vary, so it is best to check with the credit reporting company in advance.
  • Prevent a thief from making charges to your existing accounts. You still need to monitor all bank, credit card and insurance statements for fraudulent transactions.

Equifax is currently waiving their credit freeze fee. Each of the three credit reporting agencies – Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion – charge between $5-$10.

The Nuclear Option

If you do find yourself affected by this data breach to the point of identity theft or other life-altering implications, you can file for a new Social Security Number.

There is nothing pleasant about any of these activities but please take a moment and do your due diligence for your protection. We are also available if you have any questions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
