ONLINE PRIVACY GUIDELINES

We are firmly committed to protecting our shareholders’ personal and financial information online. The following guidelines are designed to help you understand how we gather, use and protect that personal and financial information.

INFORMATION COLLECTION, USE & DISCLOSURE

We do not collect any personal information online. We do not give out your personal information unless we are authorized or permitted to do so. We do not sell your personal information to any third parties. You may browse our web site anonymously, and we will not collect personal information such as your e-mail address. In order to evaluate the usefulness of our site, we also gather and analyze data regarding usage of the site, such as domain name, number of hits, pages visited and length of user session.

USE OF COOKIES

What is a cookie? A cookie is a small piece of information placed on your computer by the Web site you are visiting. It allows the Web site to “remember” or “recognize” your computer during subsequent visits. Although different Web sites use cookies for different purposes, one important function is to allow a site to personalize your experience. For example, a cookie can be used to designate start pages within a site, or to indicate an area of interest to you on a Web site. Web sites may use two types of cookies. Temporary cookies are stored on your computer only during your browsing session, and are automatically deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Permanent cookies are stored on your computer and are not deleted when you close your browser. Permanent cookies retain your preferences for a particular Web site, allowing those preferences to remain for future browsing sessions. We do not use cookies on this Web site.

E-MAIL PRIVACY

We preserve the content of your e-mail, your e-mail address and our response so that we can more efficiently handle any follow-up questions you may have and to meet legal and regulatory requirements. It is important to understand that regular non-encrypted Internet e-mail is not secure. Some Fund-related Internet e-mail addresses are provided, but these are for information inquiries of a non-sensitive and non-confidential nature.

We strongly urge you not to send confidential information such as social security or account numbers to us via a non-secure e-mail address. Because our e-mail response back to you would not be secure, we will not include confidential account information in an e-mail response. You may also contact us by phone, fax or U.S. mail.

You should be aware that Web sites linking to and from this site may have different privacy practices than ours. It is assumed that visitors to our site will read the privacy statements of this and other Web sites they visit. However, our privacy statement applies solely to information contained on this Web site. Because we cannot control information on other Internet sites, we are not responsible for the content of sites linked to or from this Web site nor for the privacy policies given on those sites.

OUR PRIVACY COMMITMENT

You can count on us to keep you informed about the procedures and the technology we use to protect your privacy and limit the sharing of information you provide to us, whether in a mailed application, over the phone or through the Internet.
