Excerpts

Please be aware that OTCBB issuers are subject to many of the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the "Act"), some of which are now in effect.

As for the email retention, can check this out

Excerpts:

The effects of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 reach further than just the publicly listed companies. If you do business with public companies, you may have already been asked to become compliant. Thus, it is difficult to quantify the ripple effect of the Act on how we will do business in the years to come. Most IT managers do not really understand the importance of the new regulations, and I think that ethical discussions and education on the topic will be the key for achieving compliance.
