The Federal Trade Commission has established guidelines that offer practical advice on endorsements and testimonials by consumers, celebrities and experts, Guides concerning the Use of Testimonials and Endorsements, https://www.ftc.gov/news-events/press-releases/2009/10/ftc-publishes-final-guides-governing-endorsements-testimonials. All endorsements and testimonials must reflect the honest, accurate experiences of the endorser. Endorsements and testimonials may not contain representations that would be deceptive, or could not be substantiated. You must have adequate proof and/or scientific evidence to back up the endorsement/testimonial that the results shown are typical and clearly and conspicuously disclose the generally expected performance in the circumstances shown for the endorsement/testimonial. Simply stating that “Results not typical” or individual results may vary” is not enough.
a. Autodialers. Customers may not use autodialers to offer Bod-e Pro products, or the earnings opportunity.
b. Prerecorded or artificial voice messages. Customers may not use prerecorded or artificial voice messages to offer Bod-e Pro products, or the earnings opportunity, unless: (a) you have an established business relationship with the recipient, or (b) you have obtained the prior express consent of the recipient to the use of such prerecorded or artificial voice messages.
c. Unsolicited faxes & unsolicited e-mail messages. Customers may not send a fax message, an e-mail message or text message to anyone with whom you do not have an established business relationship, or who has not given you prior express permission to send them a fax or text message.
d. Do Not Call Lists. Customers may not contact, either by telephone or by fax, any person or entity whose telephone number is on any government sponsored “Do Not Call” list, unless one of the FCC’s exemptions is applicable to the specific person or entity. You must also maintain your own “Do Not Call” list that records the number(s) of any person or entity that requests that they not be contacted by you. Furthermore, you must maintain a written policy governing the “Do Not Call” list, and all personnel engaged in telephone solicitation on your behalf must be trained in the existence and use of the list. It is your responsibility to consult with your attorney to determine the requirements of federal and any state laws relating to “Do Not Call” lists, and to comply with those requirements.
e. Further restrictions. Federal law requires that any person or entity making a telephone solicitation must, at the beginning of the message, provide the called party with the name of the individual caller and the name of the person or entity on whose behalf the call is being made. The person or entity on whose behalf the call is made must also provide a telephone number or address at which such person or entity may be contacted. In addition, no calls may be made before 8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m. (local time at the called party’s location).
f. Electronic Communications.

Failure to obey the requirements of the CAN-SPAM Act could result in criminal and civil enforcement actions, imprisonment and severe financial penalties. Customers may not send unsolicited commercial email or unsolicited bulk email (spam). Customers are prohibited from sending messages unless the Customer has a prior existing business or personal relationship with the recipient; or the recipient has provided prior affirmative consent to receive the message. “Prior existing business relationship” means a relationship formed by a voluntary, two-way communication between the Customer and the recipient based on the recipient’s prior purchase, transaction, or inquiry. “Personal relationship” means a relationship based on the recipient’s status as a family member, friend or acquaintance with respect to the Customer. “Affirmative consent” means that the recipient has expressly consented to receive the message, either in response to the Customer’s clear and conspicuous request for such consent or at the recipient’s own initiative. Consent must specifically address receipt of messages regarding Bod-e Pro products or the earnings opportunity.
