SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Negative Option Rule, 16 CFR Part 425. OMB Control Number: 3084–0104. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection. Abstract: The Negative Option Rule governs the operation of prenotification subscription plans. Under these plans, sellers notify subscribers that they will automatically ship merchandise, such as books, compact discs, or tapes, and bill subscribers for the merchandise if the subscribers do not expressly reject the merchandise beforehand within a prescribed time. The Rule protects consumers by: (a) Requiring that promotional materials disclose the terms of membership clearly and conspicuously; and (b) establishing procedures for the administration of such ‘‘negative option’’ plans. On August 4, 2011, the Commission sought comment on the information collection requirements associated with the Negative Option Rule. 76 FR 47186. No comments were received. Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR Part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing a second opportunity for the public to comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the pre-existing clearance for the Rule. Estimated Annual Burden: 3,875 hours. Estimated Number of Respondents, Estimated Average Burden per Year per Respondent: (a) 45 existing clubs each require annually about 75 hours to comply with the Rule’s disclosure requirements, for a total of 3,375 hours (45 clubs × 75 hours); (b) 5 new clubs come into being each year, requiring approximately 100 hours to comply with the Rule, including start up-time, for a total of 500 hours (5 clubs × 100 hours). Estimated Annual Labor Cost: $167,125.1 Estimated Capital or Other Non-Labor Cost: Minimal.2 1 The calculations underlying this estimate were detailed in the August 4, 2011, related Federal Register Notice. See 76 FR at 47187. An error in the recap, however, showed the total as $171,825; the ensuing calculations in that notice, however, correctly showed the total as $167,125. 2 Because the Rule has been in effect since 1974, the vast majority of the negative option clubs have no current start-up costs. For the few new clubs that enter the market each year, the costs associated with the Rule’s disclosure requirements, beyond the additional labor costs discussed above, are minimal. Negative option clubs already have access to the ordinary office equipment necessary to achieve compliance with the Rule. Similarly, the Rule PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 71563 Request for Comment You can file a comment online or on paper. For the FTC to consider your comment, we must receive it on or before December 19, 2011. Write ‘‘Negative Option Rule: FTC File No. P064202’’ on your comment. Your comment—including your name and your state—will be placed on the public record of this proceeding, including, to the extent practicable, on the public Commission Web site, at http:// www.ftc.gov/os/publiccomments.shtm. As a matter of discretion, the Commission tries to remove individuals’ home contact information from comments before placing them on the Commission Web site. Because your comment will be made public, you are solely responsible for making sure that your comment does not include any sensitive personal information, like anyone’s Social Security number, date of birth, driver’s license number or other state identification number or foreign country equivalent, passport number, financial account number, or credit or debit card number. You are also solely responsible for making sure that your comment does not include any sensitive health information, like medical records or other individually identifiable health information. In addition, do not include any ‘‘[t]rade secret or any commercial or financial information which is obtained from any person and which is privileged or confidential * * *,’’ as provided in Section 6(f) of the FTC Act, 15 U.S.C. 46(f), and FTC Rule 4.10(a)(2), 16 CFR 4.10(a)(2). If you want the Commission to give your comment confidential treatment, you must file it in paper form, with a request for confidential treatment, and you have to follow the procedure explained in FTC Rule 4.9(c), 16 CFR 4.9(c).3 Your comment will be kept confidential only if the FTC General Counsel, in his or her sole discretion, grants your request in accordance with the law and the public interest. Postal mail addressed to the Commission is subject to delay due to heightened security screening. As a result, we encourage you to submit your imposes few, if any, printing and distribution costs. The required disclosures generally constitute only a small addition to the advertising for negative option plans. Because printing and distribution expenditures are incurred to market the product regardless of the Rule, adding the required disclosures results in marginal incremental expense. 3 In particular, the written request for confidential treatment that accompanies the comment must include the factual and legal basis for the request, and must identify the specific portions of the comment to be withheld from the public record. See FTC Rule 4.9(c), 16 CFR 4.9(c). E:\FR\FM\18NON1.SGM 18NON1
