III.  Federal Trade Commission materials:

- For the current FTC approach to consumer privacy, the best place to start is their publication from March 2012 on "Protecting Consumer Privacy in an Era of Rapid Change," which can be found at

http://ftc.gov/os/2012/03/120326privacyreport.pdf


- For FTC materials on endorsement guidelines, the best place to start is: 

http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2009/10/endortest.shtm

From there, you can find the current guidelines as well as FTC interprative guidance.
