What information we collect Faselis is a media database. We collect data about publications and journalists. We update this data by calling offices of the publications and asking them to provide the current information about the journalists. We do not make the publications’ and the journalists’ data public; it is only available to the users of our Service. Journalists receive press releases by email. They can organize their press release profiles to only receive certain categories of press releases (e.g. press releases only for Consumer Electronics industry) or to block certain brands and PR agencies. Faselis users can search and see the information even about journalists who blocked emails. Blocking Faselis does not delete journalist’s information from the Service. We collect several types of information about publications and journalists listed on our Service, including the following: Name, email, phone number, job title, media connection, address.
