Our websites operate on computer systems that are located in West Virginia and California, and are therefore subject to the laws of those two states.

No person may initiate the transmission of an unauthorized electronic mail message … or a bulk electronic mail message from a computer located in the state of West Virginia or to an electronic mail address that the sender knows, or has reason to know, is held by a West Virginia resident … a minimum damage assessment of one thousand dollars may be recovered for violations of this article. Punitive damages may be awarded for the willful failure to cease initiating unauthorized bulk electronic mail messages. Court costs and reasonable attorney fees may be awarded for violations of this article.”
