IQ Biometrix Forms Strategic Alliance With SocialTech

BURLINGAME & CUPERTINO, Calif. Sept. 26, 2002 - IQ Biometrix Inc., the operating entity of JVWeb Inc. JVWW, a worldwide provider of facial comparison security software, announced today that it has formed a strategic alliance with SocialTech Inc.

The two organizations will integrate their respective software products in order to help law enforcement officials and community organizations quickly solve crimes.

TRAK, "Technology to Recover Abducted Kids," is a computer software system that was originally designed to help law enforcement agencies locate and recover abducted children. It has since been used in countless types of cases, assisting law enforcement in the process of communicating important visual information. This system allows any police officer to quickly and efficiently create high-resolution photo bulletins and share them electronically with other law enforcement jurisdictions, the media, and the community, when they deem it appropriate. Learn more at http://socialtech.trak.org/.

FACES 3.0, The Ultimate Composite Picture, has been a key element in the capture of criminals. Soon to be launched FACES 4.0 is based on an extensive library of over 5,000 different facial features -- 1,200 more than version 3.0 -- including scars, tattoos, earrings and piercings, and many other unique facial traits. The features can be combined, through the software program, into unique facial composites, which can be converted into unique 38-digit alphanumeric ID codes.

FACES 3.0 has been in the market for four years, and is used by more than 5,000 police and intelligence agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. military. Through the application of a common alphanumeric ID code all of these law enforcement agencies can quickly and effectively work together to apprehend criminals. FACES also functions as a problem prevention application in several hundred schools. Learn more about FACES: www.iqbiometrix.com

IQ Biometrix has a close relationship with the Fox Network television series "America's Most Wanted," (AMW) which is viewed by 15 million people weekly. AMW has adopted the FACES software as a crime-solving tool. The host of the series, John Walsh, is the official spokesperson for the FACES software. FACES is featured on the America's most wanted Web site's homepage at www.amw.com
