Do not use false or misleading subjects or email addresses.
Identify the message as an advertisement in some reasonable way.

California Online Privacy Protection Act

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting personally identifiable information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.

For more information, please see CalOPPA.

According to CalOPPA, we agree to the following:

Users can visit our site anonymously.
