Terms and Conditions.
By enrolling in this electronic delivery service, you agree to receive announcements by e-mail
about shareholder communications materials. Those materials are made available electronically
by issuing corporations, mutual funds and other third parties. Quarterly, semi-annual and annual
reports; proxy statements; prospectuses and newsletters are examples of shareholder
communications that may be made available electronically. The announcements will include the
Internet address (URL) where the materials can be found. Materials referenced within the e-mail
announcement may be viewed electronically via the Internet and printed with a local printer. If the
materials are not made available electronically, you will receive the standard printed materials
and no announcement will be made by e-mail.
Your enrollment will be effective for all holdings in the specified account on an ongoing basis
unless you change or cancel your enrollment.
If you have a security position in an equity or mutual fund as of the record date for a particular
shareholder distribution and the materials to be distributed are made available electronically, you
will receive an e-mail announcement. The content of the information provided for electronic
delivery is the responsibility of the issuing corporation, mutual fund, or third party, presenting it. If
your securities are held by a financial institution, the broker or bank that holds your security is not
responsible for content of electronic shareowner material.

If, during a distribution, your e-mail address proves to be invalid, your enrollment in this electronic
delivery service will be cancelled and you will receive a hard-copy notification of the
announcement. This notification will provide the URL to the electronic material, and will contain
instructions to visit http://www.investordelivery.com/

If, after enrollment in this electronic delivery service, you would like to receive a printed set of
shareowner material for a particular security, in addition to your e-mail notification, you may
request hard copy delivery from your broker, bank or directly from the issuing corporation or
mutual fund. The broker, bank, issuing corporation or mutual fund may, at their discretion,
impose a fee to receive the printed materials in addition to the electronic materials.
