Declaration of Permissions
I ask that organizations who may wish to make solicitations to me or to provide information about me to others first check the the appropriate line of the List of Organizations below in order to determine my permissions concerning such acts. Where the categories overlap the last line whose description is applicable should be considered as the appropriate line. These permissions remain in effect until I change them by issuing another Junkbusters Declaration or other explicit instructions to that effect. If a URL is specified in the Identification section, organizations involved in direct marketing are encouraged to check it periodically for revised versions of this Declaration. Each such organization is addressed as ``you.'' If the line ``Permissions apply to all residents'' appears below, ``me'' and ``I'' should be interpreted to mean all residents at my address.
- If the line begins with a ``D'' I deny you and your agents my permission to send me solicitations by mail, and I specifically request that you include my address(es) below in any and all ``do-not-mail'' lists under your control.
- If the line begins with a ``P'' I permit you to send me solicitations by mail.
- If the line begins with a ``W'' I permit and encourage you to send me solicitations by mail.
If one or more telephone numbers are listed in the Identification section, I deny you permission to make telemarketing calls and other unsolicited calls including market research surveys to such numbers, and I specifically request that you include any and all of the numbers in all ``do-not-call'' lists under your control. I also deny you permission to provide information about me (other than than the contents of this Declaration under the terms of the GPL) to any other entity. I specifically request that you include my name on all lists you maintain of consumers who do not wish to to have their names rented or shared. However, depending on your business practices this may not suffice to ensure that you do not use my name contrary to my permission, so I ask that you take all other necessary steps to ensure that neither you nor your agents acting on your behalf do this. If one or more electronic mail addresses is specified in the Identification section, I deny you permission to send solicitations by email to such addresses. Notwithstanding anything above, I offer you a license to use and distribute the information in this Declaration under the GPL, and I also adopt the standard exemptions published by Junkbusters Corporation as if written in the body of this Declaration. I reserve my rights in the event that you act contrary to what I have told you I permit. Without in any way limiting these rights, you are advised that I regard 90 days from the date of your receipt of this Declaration as more than ample time for you to make the necessary preparations to ensure that you do not act contrary to my permissions.
