        Non-display usage is defined as any device that a distributor allows to access the BX TotalView information or that
       communicates with the distributor so as to cause the distributor to access such information. Non-display usage of the
       BX TotalView data is fee liable. If a controlled non-display device is part of an electronic network between computers,
       the burden will be on the Distributor to demonstrate that the particular controlled device should not have to pay for a
       BX TotalView entitlement. Examples of non-display usage include, but are not limited to, the following: operations
       control programs, program trading, investment analysis, order verification, surveillance programs, risk management
       and order routing activities.

    g. Distributors providing real-time data to external subscribers are required to:
            Administer the relevant Subscriber Agreement to each subscriber, or
            Choose to indemnify NASDAQ BX and its affiliates.

         How will your firm offer the Subscriber Agreement to real-time data subscribers?

            Vendor Indemnification — Distributor includes language in its own legally valid and
            enforceable contract with the Subscriber that protects NASDAQ BX to the same extent as if
            Distributor had administered the Subscriber Agreement to the Subscriber.

            Online Subscriber Agreement — Distributor offers the Subscriber Agreement via the
            internet. Completion of the Online Subscriber Agreement Application and the Online
            Subscriber Agreement Amendment are required.

            Incorporation by Reference — Distributor adds specific language into its own agreement
            with the Subscriber. Submission of a copy of this agreement is required.

            Stand Alone/Hard Copy Agreement — Distributor provides subscriber with a hard copy
            of the Subscriber Agreement. Distributor retains executed originals but does not submit
            the documents to NASDAQ BX.

                                       II. ENTITLEMENT SYSTEM
