ADDITIONAL INFORMATION WE WANT YOU TO KNOW:

SECURITY STATEMENT We diligently attempt to protect your privacy and any information that we possess about you. When you submit information to us using the TD Ameritrade Institutional online client portal, your information is encrypted on-line and also protected off-line. When you view your account on-line, all data transferred to you about your account is encrypted to industry standards (128 bit encryption). Please keep in mind that messages sent by e-mail are not secure. You should not send to us any confidential or personal information by e-mail or voicemail—including orders to Buy or Sell securities. We will attempt to process orders received via email and voicemail, but timely execution of these orders is unlikely. Missing information and/or confusing messages could result in us taking no action at all. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards that we believe will ensure the security, integrity and privacy of your personal information within our company, but that might, in fact, not prove adequate in light of ever-evolving counter technology.

Use of Internet Browser Cookies: Saltwater Harbor does NOT use Internet browser “cookies” on our public web site. However, accessing your account electronically may requires the use of cookies for security purposes. A cookie is a small line of text that is stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive that may be used to learn more about your browsing habits. Maine Securities’

website may contain links to other sites. We are not responsible for the content of or the privacy practices

employed by sites other than our own.

Email Policy: Any email that you receive from any associate of Saltwater Harbor should either contain the prefix “Si” or “Info” and be followed by the letters @saltwaterharbor.com. If you receive email from any

associate that does not contain that address, please notify us at once at the following address:

info@saltwaterharbor.com or by regular mail to the address at the bottom of this page. It is a serious

violation of our supervisory procedures for any associate to use a personal email account in correspondence with clients of this firm. As a general rule, you should not utilize email or voicemail to “BUY” or “SELL” securities with our firm. Recipients often do not have ready access to

electronic communications and/or might not be able to act on such for extended periods of time.

Although your order will ultimately be acted upon, it is unlikely that timely receipt and/or execution will occur. You should understand that significant delays may result from your electronic message trading requests to us if all details of your request to us are not clear to us.

Telephone Call Monitoring and Recording: We may monitor and record your telephone calls to us (or portions of your telephone calls) for quality control, customer service, employee training, security, and other lawful purposes. You consent and agree to such monitoring and recording. Your consent shall be ongoing and need not be confirmed prior to, or during such monitoring or recording, except to

the extent applicable law expressly requires otherwise.

SEC Rules 605 and 606: Disclosure of order execution and order routing of your orders is available through Saltwater Harbor, our clearing firm, and our web site. Please contact your account representative for all available information regarding these regulations and your account.

Market Volatility may affect the timeliness and/or pricing of your orders with our firm.

Changes to this Privacy Policy: We are required by law to provide written notice of our privacy policies to you annually as long as you maintain an active account with us. These policies may be modified from time to time to comply with applicable laws or to conform to our current business practices, and without prior notice to you. Our current Privacy Policy is available on our web site. We

encourage you to visit our web site periodically to check for updates. To opt out, and/or to deliver

customer complaints, please use this number: 888-480-2650 or (207) 749-2658. Or you can write to
