As an aid to help our clients better understand the nature of the investigation industry, the processes by which we work, and the
regulations by which we are governed, we have prepared this information sheet so you may have a realistic expectation regarding
the investigation Strategic Data Source, Inc. will conduct on your behalf.

. The training, licensing, testing, background checks and certification process we go through in order to obtain and maintain our
licenses and certifications are meant to set us apart as individuals who are committed to professionalism. As such, we are bound
to rigid codes of conduct dictated by the State of Arizona as well as local, federal laws and regulations.

. Though we are very knowledgeable of the laws governing our actions, any advice we give concerning the direction or outcome
of your case is merely a suggestion that should be approved by any legal representative you may have.

. Ours is an industry revolving around detail gathered through available information, the understanding of this detail and the
working knowledge of how to follow the facts we uncover. This detailed information is generated through diligence and legal
investigative procedures.

. Frequently, the information uncovered is contrary to what the client hopes to find. We cannot guarantee results with every
case. We can only guarantee that the necessary information, documentation, etc., will be searched for diligently, legally, and
expediently as possible.

. If surveillance is necessary, we feel obligated to inform you of the "real life caveats." Surveillance, especially moving
surveillance, is not an exact science. We can perform these observations under agreed upon time and location parameters but
cannot promise activity or results on behalf of the subject. Similarly, moving surveillance with limited personnel/resources carries
with it inherent obstacles such as the unpredictable nature of traffic. There is no guarantee that contact with the subject can be
maintained as we cannot predict traffic flow, weather, activity or other unforeseen occurrences. Privacy and private property laws
may dictate the conduct of some cases.

. SDS Inc. will attempt to reach the goal of obtaining the information you need in a timely, professional and discreet manner
while representing you in your case.

I understand SDS’s investigative policy and procedure concerning investigation and acknowledge SDS’ policy concerning locate

Prior to providing a person any personally identifying or location information of an individual, SDS will conduct appropriate due
diligence to ensure that the person has a legitimate business or legal interest in obtaining that information. When such due
diligence is not possible or appropriate, or if the person appears to not have a legal or business interest, the person shall be
informed that their contact information will be provided to the subject they are seeking and the personal identifying information of
the subject they are seeking will only be provided to the person if that party consents."
