The Internet is often thought of as the wild, wild west, where just about anything goes. Unfortunately, when it comes to advertising most of the usual regulations still apply, even in the fast-paced cyber world.

Tom Leduc will lead participants through the regulatory maze with an overview of which advertising rules apply to which pages of your credit union’s website, as well as a discussion about some common website compliance violations.
The session will cover a wide range of website compliance areas, for example:
  • Truth-in-Savings
  • Share Insurance
  • Truth-in-Lending
  • Equal Housing Lender
  • Privacy
  • Marketing in Newsletters
  • Special Promotions
Beyond websites, from TIS to CAN SPAM, attendees will take with them a compliance “road-map” to help them spot compliance issues before they roll out their advertisements and special promotions.
