As you may be aware, federal privacy laws require that we explain to you how we maintain and secure “nonpublic personal information.” This is nonpublic personally identifiable information that in the course of our relationship with you, we receive or develop about you. It includes information you provide to us orally or on applications or other forms and information we develop about you in the course of providing our services to you, such as the amount and type of your assets that we manage and transactions we place on your behalf.

As a general rule, we do not disclose nonpublic information to others. In order to provide investment management services to you we rely on certain third parties for services. These third parties may include attorneys, auditors, prime brokers and custodians who, in the ordinary course of providing their services to us, may require access to information containing your nonpublic personal information. In addition, we may disclose your nonpublic personal information to others with your consent, where required by law or judicial process (such as a court order), or otherwise to the extent permitted under the federal privacy laws. It is our policy that, where we are not comfortable a service provider is already bound by duties of confidentiality (e.g., attorneys and auditors), we will require contractual assurances that they will maintain the confidentiality of any of your information and they will use the information only for purposes for which it is disclosed to them.

We also restrict access to your nonpublic personal information among our own personnel. Only those who need the information in order to help us provide investment advisory services to you have access. We also maintain electronic, physical and procedural safeguards to prevent unauthorized disclosure of such information.

Northside Capital Management is committed to providing the highest quality of financial services and we are just as committed to safeguarding your privacy and confidentiality. Information about you is necessary for us to administer your accounts, but we have implemented procedures that we believe are reasonably designed to protect the security and confidentiality of your information.
