Unsolicited Email Policy

Most importantly, we do not advertise or promote any individual stocks.

GlobeNewswire is a private newswire service that public & investor relations professionals employ to assist them with the distribution of their full-text press releases to the news media, financial markets and online websites & databases.

We do not send spam and we do not distribute releases to the general public.

Our Website's general newsroom allows for visitors to register to receive online notification when releases of interest cross our wire, but this service is entirely voluntary and you would only be receiving these emails if you proactively subscribed to the service.

Further, all emails sent to newsroom registrants include "unsubscribe" instructions at the bottom of each email.

If you received an unsolicited fax or email that includes a press release that we distributed (as evident by the word "(GlobeNewswire)" within the dateline of the release), you are not being spammed by GlobeNewswire but rather by someone else.

GlobeNewswire delivers its clients' releases to online news websites and portals where the information is easily accessed by the public, including spammers who violate our copyrights by illegally copying these news releases and including it in their spam to you.

What you can do

Unsolicited Faxes

GlobeNewswire does not send unsolicited faxes. If you received an unsolicited fax that includes the word "(GlobeNewswire)" within the document, it is because the spammer is illegally copying & pasting a legitimate press release that we distributed for a client and included it in their fax to you.

Complaints about unsolicited faxes should be directed to the FCC, not the GlobeNewswire. You can file a complaint online or in writing.

Instructions on how to file a complaint are available at the FCC's website.

Email SPAM

GlobeNewswire does not send email spam. If you received an unsolicited email that includes the word "(GlobeNewswire)" within the documents, it is because the spammer is illegally copying & pasting a legitimate press release that we distributed for a client and included it in their email to you.

Report it to the Federal Trade Commission

Send a copy of unwanted or deceptive messages to uce@ftc.gov. The FTC uses the unsolicited emails stored in this database to pursue law enforcement actions against people who send deceptive spam email. Let the FTC know if a "remove me" request is not honored. If you want to complain about a removal link that doesn't work or not being able to unsubscribe from a list, you can fill out the FTC's online complaint form. Your complaint will be added to the FTC's Consumer Sentinel database and made available to hundreds of law enforcement and consumer protection agencies. Whenever you complain about spam, it's important to include the full email header. The information in the header makes it possible for consumer protection agencies to follow up on your complaint.

Send a copy of the spam to your ISP's abuse desk

Often the email address is abuse@yourispname.com or postmaster@yourispname.com. By doing this, you can let the ISP know about the spam problem on their system and help them to stop it in the future. Make sure to include a copy of the spam, along with the full email header. At the top of the message, state that you're complaining about being spammed.

Complain to the sender's ISP

Most ISPs want to cut off spammers who abuse their system. Again, make sure to include a copy of the message and header information and state that you're complaining about spam.
