In compliance with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (“GLB”), Public Law 106-102 (1999), this notice
contains the privacy policy of Benefit Program Services, Inc. and its affiliated companies. This notice
is provided to you by Benefit Program Services, Inc.

The GLB Act was enacted to provide greater protection for an individual’s private information. This
notice is meant to provide you with information regarding how we, as an independent life and health
brokerage agencies, use your personal information and what your rights are with regard to your nonpublic
personal information.

In order to provide the consumer, and our customer the agent, with the benefits of life insurance and
other financial products and services, we need to collect certain non-public information. In fact, the
more we understand about a particular set of needs, the better we can recommend the appropriate
carrier and policy in order to achieve favorable underwriting. However, we are committed to
maintaining the privacy of this information in accordance with the law.

As an independent life and health brokerage agency we are in a unique position as we routinely
obtain non-public information about the ultimate end user of the product(s) as well as obtain nonpublic
information about our customer, the agent/broker. We may obtain non-public information
concerning an agent/broker in an effort to comply with the laws preventing certain individuals from
holding a license and to comport to our own agency standards. We may, as part of the appointment
or pre-appointment process, receive information concerning an agent/broker credit history and
contact additional sources in order to perform any needed background check.

All employees and affiliates of our company with access to personal information about the consumer
and the agent customer are required to follow this policy. Our privacy policy applies to all personally
identifiable non-public information about you that is obtained in connection with providing you a life or
health insurance policy or additional financial products and services. Our privacy policy will continue
to cover information we may collect about you during the course of your insurance policy as well as
after your insurance policy has ended.

affiliated and nonaffiliated persons or entities involved in the underwriting, processing, servicing, and
