Privacy and Non-disclosure

It is our policy to protect the confidentiality of our customers and not disclose information about accountholders. We understand that persons and/or entities ("Accountholder") will furnish us with business and/or personal financial information ("confidential information") for the purpose of opening and maintaining their account. Such confidential information includes, but is not limited to, personal data, financial records, and account information. We understand that the confidential information provided by Accountholder is unique, valuable and highly confidential, and disclosure of the confidential information may might not be in the best interest of Accountholder.

We will not willfully disclose any part of the confidential information, except for the express purpose for which it was provided, without the consent of Accountholder. We will not use the confidential information for any purpose other than as set forth herein, and will not intentionally disclose any part of the confidential information to any third party, except to third parties who need such information for the purpose for which it was provided. In such cases, we will inform the recipient of the confidential nature of the information and will instruct to the extent possible such third parties to treat the confidential information in accordance with our policy.

We will advise Accountholder, except where prohibited by law, of any request or demand for confidential information by a third party. We will not produce any confidential information to a third party without the consent of Accountholder, except where necessary to comply with international anti-money laundering requirements or upon a valid court order. If we are served with a subpoena or demand for records or testimony, we shall advise Accountholder, except where prohibited by law, and provide Accountholder with the opportunity to contest any such subpoena or demand for its records if Accountholder so chooses. We will on a good faith basis abide by Accountholder's wishes with regard to taking legal measures to protect the confidentiality of Accountholder's records, providing Accountholder bears all legal expenses incurred in doing so. We assume no liability whatsoever for any breach of privacy, confidentiality or nondisclosure where a court of competent jurisdiction orders disclosure of account information or disbursement of funds from account or where compelled to do so by international anti-money laundering requirements.

This policy statement in no way constitutes a contract in itself or part of any existing contract and is subject to change without notice. However, we will on a best efforts basis seek to maintain continuity in our policies. If we do change this policy we will on a best efforts basis attempt to not institute such policies retroactively. Whether a policy change is enacted retroactively or proactively, on a best efforts basis we will attempt to give reasonable notice to accountholders of that policy change.

Anti-money Laundering Statement

In the global marketplace, the attempted use of financial institutions to launder money is a significant problem that has caused great concern in the international and domestic community, which has resulted in the passage of strict laws and increased penalties for illegal money laundering worldwide.

While the United States and other nations have had strong anti-money laundering (AML) laws applicable to certain financial institutions, including banks, securities broker-dealers and investment advisors, those laws have recently been strengthened and extended to other financial institutions including stand-alone clearing firms, marketmakers, customer intermediates and introducing brokers of currencies transactions worldwide.

Among other things, the laws require financial institutions to establish anti-money laundering compliance programs, which include internal policies, procedures and controls designed to detect and prevent money laundering. The new requirements include enhanced "Know Your Customer" (KYC) obligations (e.g., verification of customer identity), monitoring and reporting suspicious transactions, special due diligence checks for certain customers, ongoing employee training, record keeping and independent audits to test the programs and also naming an AML compliance officer.

The requirement to "know your customer" is one borne of sound business practices and established legal and regulatory oversight. Presently, industry regulations require firms to undertake reasonable efforts to obtain and maintain the essential facts relative to each customer and each account opened. For ease of use, this information is captured and maintained in the firm's new account documentation, which includes the customer account application, a request for taxpayer identification number and certification, corporate resolutions (if applicable), governmental photo identification (e.g., driver's license, passport, state or national identity card, utility bill) or other such documentation as may be appropriate to ascertain and verify a person's identity. The information must match before the account will be opened. This information will be kept strictly confidential and will only be used for the purpose it was supplied (see CFD Capital Markets Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Policy).

Accordingly, CFD Capital Markets has established governing principles and standards to protect itself, its businesses and its customers from being used to launder money. All CFD Capital Markets employees, and CFD Capital Markets affiliates, wherever located, must be vigilant in the fight against money laundering and must not allow CFD Capital Markets to be used for money laundering activities. As a company engaged in the international investment products and services industry, it is incumbent upon CFD Capital Markets to join with the international business community to assure that its products and services are not the tool of terrorists or drug-dealers. While CFD Capital Markets has a clear responsibility to its customers on matters of confidentiality and privacy to which it must adhere, now more than ever we must adopt effective procedures and practices to help fight international terrorism.

It is CFD Capital Markets's policy to protect and not divulge the personal or account information of any legitimate accountholder; it is also the policy of CFD Capital Markets to ascertain the true identity of each of its accountholders. CFD Capital Markets must strike a fair and proper balance between its obligation to its customers for confidentiality and its legal and moral responsibility not to have its accounts used to unwittingly facilitate international terrorism or illegal money laundering.

Toward that end, CFD Capital Markets has engaged industry experts to advise it on how best to accomplish this goal. Right now CFD Capital Markets only asks from its customers that they provide a certified copy of their passport or national photo-identifier (as set forth above). CFD Capital Markets has implemented industry-best practices in anti-money laundering policies and procedures, which affect many aspects of our business and, in certain cases, the relationships with our customers. We ask that each prospective customer of CFD Capital Markets give his or her utmost understanding and assistance to us in our effort to fulfill this worthy and necessary goal.
