Information Gathered by Newsfile Corp.

Personal Information

Newsfile Corp. requires registration for certain services, such as the distribution of press releases, the filing of documents on the SEC EDGAR, SEDAR, and SEDI systems, and access to our software products. In order to provide our services to you, we may ask you for contact information (such as name and email address), filing codes, financial information (account or credit card numbers), mailing address, phone number, title, company name, and/or demographic information (including zip/postal code).

Email addresses are used to send information based on your registered services and product selections and to respond to general inquiry requests. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties.

Information Collection

As with most Internet sites, our Web site collects a variety of technical data, including your IP address (a unique number that identifies your access account on the Internet), domain, username (if you are logged into one of our software products) and Web browser information. We use this information to help diagnose problems with our service, to administer our Web site, and in reporting capacities to companies with whom Newsfile Corp. works, including its clients, partners, etc. For example, your IP address may be used to help identify you and your account information and to gather demographic information, or to maintain an aggregated log of click activity on our Web site.

Cookies

Our Web site uses “cookies” to keep track of your accounts. We also use cookies to deliver content specific to you. Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future.

We do not record or store any information about your movements on the Internet outside of our Web site. You can choose to decline our cookies (e.g., by setting your browser to reject cookies), but if you do, some parts of our Web site may not operate properly.

Transparent Images

We employ a software technology called transparent images, that helps us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. We use extremely small, transparent images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track the online movements of Web users. Transparent images are not tied to users' personally identifiable information.

Newsfile Corp.'s Use of Information

We may use your contact information:

1. When processing service requests;
2. To send you information about our company. You may however opt out of receiving such mailings (see the Client Prospects and Subscribers sections below); and
3. To provide you with alerts regarding pertinent external developments.

We use financial information to bill you for products and services.

We may use demographic, usage and profile data collected at our Web site in the course of reporting. Anonymous user data (such as IP addresses, and/or their IP-location information, if available) may be utilized within aggregate traffic reporting to third parties or clients submitting press releases to Newsfile Corp. Additionally, certain information provided at user-registration (such as the name of a media outlet or user title) may be made available to clients within activity reports, although no personally identifiable information (such as names, phone numbers, or email addresses) will be reported.

Security

We have in place industry standard security measures to protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of the information under our control, including through the use of physical, organizational, and technological measures and appropriate training of employees. We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you request service or access your personal information. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Web site. It is possible that any information transmitted via the Internet may be intercepted by unknown third parties. We therefore encourage you to carefully ensure security through virus screening software, browser settings, the setting of passwords that are known only to you and are difficult to guess, and other security measures available to individuals and/or companies. Any transmission is at your own risk.

Sharing

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information collected through registering with Newsfile Corp. or from visiting our Web site. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Web site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential.

Newsfile Corp. may also disclose your personal information, the contents of your communications and/or your contact and financial information if required to do so by law, with your consent or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary:

1. To conform to the edicts of the law or comply with a legal process served on Newsfile Corp.;
2. To protect and defend the rights or property of Newsfile Corp. or others; or
3. To assist, under exigent circumstances, in the investigation of securities law violations or other investigations.

It is possible that as we continue to develop our business, Newsfile Corp. might be acquired. In such a transaction, your information may be transferred to the acquiring entity.

We use a third-party credit card processing company to bill users for services. This company only retains sufficient information to process an individual credit card transaction.

We may store or process your personal information on servers in Canada and/or the United States. As a consequence, your personal information may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities of those jurisdictions in accordance with applicable laws.

All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password and/or user ID which enables you to access certain parts of our Web site, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password or user ID with anyone.
