USE AND DISCLOSURE OF CLIENT INFORMATION
TO PROVIDE CLIENT SERVICE FOR YOUR ACCOUNT:
To administer, manage and service Client accounts, process transactions and provide related services to your account(s), it is necessary for us to provide access to Client Information within our Company and to non-affiliated companies; such as, and including other Investment Advisors, broker-dealers, trust companies, custodians and insurance companies.

REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL LAW:
In November 1999, Congress enacted the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLBA”). The GLBA requires certain financial institutions, including broker-dealers and investment Advisors, to protect the privacy of Customer Information. To the extent a financial institution discloses Client Information to non-affiliated third parties other than as permitted or required by law, Clients must be given the opportunity and means to opt out (or prevent) such disclosure. Please note that we do not disclose Client Information to non-affiliated third parties except as permitted or required by law (e.g., disclosures to service your account or to respond to subpoenas).
