The certification application fee is only $89 and includes your first year of service. Renewal fees currently are set at only $29 per year and will be billed 30 days before your one year anniversary in the program. You will be required to place the Privacy-First™ Logo on your web site next to your e-mail subscription sign up ( see below ).

The policy is simple. Read these basic rules. If you agree to the basic rules fill out the application below, read the actual statements of policy before filling out the form.

  1. You must be a provider of an information based newsletter. This means that you provide articles or facts on any given topic in a wriiten fashion. Your newsletter cannot be one that is used simply to promote an event, product or service.
  2. Your mail list must be 100% opt-in. The verification process will determine if you have a repution for spamming. Spammers do not qualify for this program and your processing fee will be non-refundable in the event that you have an extensive record of spamming.
  3. Mailing of advertisements that are not a part of your regular newsletter are permitted only if a separate list or opt-in mailing are used for these purposes. For example, you may have one list for your newsletter and a separate list for "special offers". If this is the case, Privacy-First™ can only be applied to the newsletter list. Potential subscribers must be made aware of this on your sign-up and given the option to sign up for either list or both. ( This, by the way, is good e-mail strategy and preserves your newsletter list from frequent opt-outs ).
  4. Third party mailings ( advertisements sent out for other companies ) will disqualify you for future use of the program and you will be asked to remove the Privacy-First™ logo from your site. Failure to remove the logo promptly will result in legal action. All complaints of this type of activity will be investigated and you will be notified when complaints are filed. You will have up to 10 days to respond to such claims.
  5. The Privacy-First™ Logo Must Be Clearly Displayed next to your sign up ( subscribe ) box and in your newsletter. If your newsletter is text only, a link should be provided to the Privacy-First™ web site as provided.
  6. Violations of any policy in whole or in part will result in exclusion from the Privacy-First™ program.
  7. If you have any doubts or questions about the requirements of this agreement, please call 678-508-5975
  8. All registration fees and annual fees are non-refundable.
