Notice of Exemption for Internet Advertisement:

Effective July 10, 2003, the Department adopted Section 310.156.3 of Title 10, California Code of Regulations (Document No. PRO 09/02) to exempt internet advertisements from the filing requirements of Corporations Code Section 31156, subject to certain conditions. Among other things, persons claiming the exemption must file a written verified notice, as specified. Although Section 310.156.3 sets forth the content and verification requirement of the written notices, the rule does not specify a particular heading ("red flag") to help staff identify and process them. Accordingly, the following sample heading (in large bold type) may be inserted at the top of the written notice filed with the Department to assist staff in identifying the claim of exemption.
