Only in the form of a revised Privacy Policy.

The lawyers took almost a month for the first Privacy Policy.

I can tell you that marketing for me means telling our opted in
members that they are eligible to participate in free betas of
new extended services, if the first check box is selected. We also
have a separate check box for receiving a quarterly newsletter
so after betas are complete we will tell the members who have
are that check box checked about any new services that resulted
from the beta testing. Both are marketing under a Privacy Policy,
but we give you two opt-outs so you can customize what level of
information you want from us. For the IRS, the member newsletter
is actually a member benefit, just like the listings service.
For the FTC, which polices Privacy Policies, the member newsletter
is marketing, as are beta test announcements.
