IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT PROCEDURES FOR OPENING A NEW ACCOUNT

To help the U.S. government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, federal law requires all financial institutions to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account. What this means for you: When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We may also ask to see identification documents, including government issued licenses.

NOTICE OF UNLAWFUL INTERNET GAMBLING

We also provide notice in accordance with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006 (the "Act") and Regulation GG issued jointly by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and the United States Department of the Treasury.

The Act prohibits any person engaged in the business of betting or wagering from knowingly accepting payments in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful Internet gambling. Such transactions are referred to as "restricted transactions." As defined in Regulation GG, unlawful Internet gambling means to "place, receive or otherwise knowingly transmit a bet or wager by any means which involves the use, at least in part, of the Internet where such bet or wager is unlawful under any applicable Federal or State law in the State or Tribal lands in which the bet or wager is initiated, received or otherwise made."

As a customer of Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation, New York Branch, restricted transactions are prohibited from being processed through your account or banking relationship with our institution. If you do engage in an Internet gambling business and maintain an account with us, we will ask that you provide evidence of your legal capacity to do so.
