40.1 System Description (cont'd)

 

(b) The LINK® System provides on-line help, a search function that permits a LINK®

information. The LINK® System will permit a LINK® System Subscriber to

electronically download information on transactions from the LINK® System and

download. Algonquin shall maintain and retain daily back-up records of the

information displayed on the LINK® System and the Web Site and through

electronic data interchange for three years and shall permit LINK® System

Subscriber to review those records upon request. Completed transactions will

remain on the LINK® System for at least ninety days after completion and will

then be archived. Archived information will be made available by Algonquin if

possible within two weeks after receipt of a Customer's request for such

information. Information on the most recent entries will appear ahead of older

information.
