We may also disclose it to issuers of securities that you own, or to computer-related, data maintenance or processing companies performing services for us, to our clearing broker, or to issuers of securities. We do not disclose the non-public personal information we collect about you to anyone except: (i) in furtherance of our business relationship with them and then only to those persons necessary to effect the transactions and provide the services they provide (such as broker-dealers, custodians, etc.); (ii) to persons assessing our compliance with industry standards (e.g. regulators, etc.); (iii) our attorneys, accountants, and auditors; or (iv) as otherwise provided by law.  No non-public personal information is provided to outside firms for marketing purposes. Except for the limited circumstances mentioned above, we do not disclose your non-public information to other companies who may want to sell their products or services to you without your consent.  Even if you are no longer our customer, our policy will continue to apply. This policy applies to products or services that we provide that are primarily for personal, family or household purposes (not business purposes).  We reserve the right to change this policy at any time
