Seller is not. permitted to substitute other secut:ities for those sulject to this Agreement and therefore must keep Buyer's securities segregated at all ti mes, unless in this Agreement Buyer grants Seller the right to substitute other securities. If Buyer grants the right to substitute, this means that Buyer's securities will likely be commingled with Seller's own securities during the trading day. Buyer is advised that, during any trading clay that Buyer's securities are commingled with Seller's securities, they [will]* [may]** be subject to hens granted by Seller to [its clearing bank]* [third parties]** and rnay be used by Seller for deliveries on other securities transactions . Whenever the securities are commingled, Seller's ability to resegregate substitu te securi ties for Buyer will be subject to Seller's ability to satisfy [the clear ing]* [anyJ * ' lien or to obtai n substitute securities.

taken the position that the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act of 1970 ("SIPA") do not protect the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder;
(b)in the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a government securities broker or a government securities dealer registered with the SEC under Section lSC of the 1934 Act, SIPA will not provide protection to the other party with respect to any Transaction hereunder; and
(c)in the case of Transactions in which one of the parties is a financial institution, funds held by the financial institution pursuant to a Transaction hereunder are not a deposit and therefore are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, as applicable.
