(b) the firm has disclosed orally or in writing to the customer that the transactions for the customer order may be aggregated and that the effect of aggregation may sometimes operate to the customer's disadvantage;
(c) before the transactions are aggregated, the firm has made a record of the intended basis of allocation and the identity of each customer; and
(d) the firm has in place a written policy on aggregation and allocation that it applies consistently and includes procedures for rule 9B.1.10.
