Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment The Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’ or ‘‘Commission’’) has accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement containing a consent order from ADT LLC, also doing business as ADT Security Services (‘‘ADT’’). The proposed consent order (‘‘proposed order’’) has been placed on the public record for thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by interested persons. Comments received during this period will become part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will again review the agreement and the comments received, and will decide whether it should withdraw from the agreement or make final the agreement’s proposed order. This matter involves ADT’s use of paid spokespersons to promote the ADT Pulse home security system in appearances on national and local television and radio news programs and talk shows. The Commission’s complaint alleges that the paid spokespersons were identified on air as experts in child safety, home security, or technology. The experts demonstrated and provided favorable reviews of the ADT Pulse as part of news segments on topics related to their expertise. In most of these appearances, there was no mention of any connection between the experts and ADT. The complaint also alleges that ADT used these paid spokespersons to promote the ADT Pulse in what appeared to be independent and objective reviews on the spokesperson’s own Web site, in blog posts, and in other online materials. The complaint alleges that ADT violated Section 5 by misrepresenting that the demonstrations and discussions of the features and benefits of the ADT Pulse were independent reviews by impartial experts. The complaint further alleges that ADT violated Section 5 by failing E:\FR\FM\11MRN1.SGM 11MRN1 emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 47 / Tuesday, March 11, 2014 / Notices to disclose that the experts were ADT’s paid spokespersons. The proposed order includes injunctive relief to address these alleged violations and requires ADT to follow certain monitoring and compliance procedures related to its use of paid spokespersons. Part I of the proposed order prohibits ADT, in connection with the advertising of any security or monitoring product or service, from misrepresenting that a discussion or demonstration of such product or service is an independent review provided by an impartial expert. Part II of the proposed order requires ADT, in connection with the advertising of any security or monitoring product by means of an endorsement, to disclose clearly and prominently a material connection, if one exists, between the endorser and ADT. Part III of the proposed order requires ADT to take all reasonable steps to remove, within seven days of service of the order, any demonstration, review, or endorsement, by an endorser with a material connection to ADT, that does not comply with Parts I and II of the order. Part IV of the proposed order sets out certain monitoring and compliance obligations that ADT must meet with respect to any endorser with a material connection to ADT, including: obtaining signed acknowledgements from such endorsers that they will disclose their connection to ADT; monitoring the endorsers’ media appearances and online reviews; terminating endorsers who fail to disclose their connection to ADT; and maintaining records of its monitoring efforts. Parts V through VIII of the proposed order require ADT to: Keep copies of relevant consumer complaints and inquiries and documents demonstrating order compliance; provide copies of the order to officers, employees, and others with responsibilities with respect to the subject matter of the order; notify the Commission of changes in corporate structure that might affect compliance obligations under the order; and file compliance reports with the Commission. Part IX provides that the order will terminate after twenty (20) years, with certain exceptions. The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the proposed order, and it is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the complaint or proposed order, or to modify the proposed order’s terms in any way.

Analysis of Proposed Consent Order To Aid Public Comment

    The Federal Trade Commission (``FTC'' or ``Commission'') has 
accepted, subject to final approval, an agreement containing a consent 
order from ADT LLC, also doing business as ADT Security Services 
(``ADT'').
    The proposed consent order (``proposed order'') has been placed on 
the public record for thirty (30) days for receipt of comments by 
interested persons. Comments received during this period will become 
part of the public record. After thirty (30) days, the Commission will 
again review the agreement and the comments received, and will decide 
whether it should withdraw from the agreement or make final the 
agreement's proposed order.
    This matter involves ADT's use of paid spokespersons to promote the 
ADT Pulse home security system in appearances on national and local 
television and radio news programs and talk shows. The Commission's 
complaint alleges that the paid spokespersons were identified on air as 
experts in child safety, home security, or technology. The experts 
demonstrated and provided favorable reviews of the ADT Pulse as part of 
news segments on topics related to their expertise. In most of these 
appearances, there was no mention of any connection between the experts 
and ADT. The complaint also alleges that ADT used these paid 
spokespersons to promote the ADT Pulse in what appeared to be 
independent and objective reviews on the spokesperson's own Web site, 
in blog posts, and in other online materials. The complaint alleges 
that ADT violated Section 5 by misrepresenting that the demonstrations 
and discussions of the features and benefits of the ADT Pulse were 
independent reviews by impartial experts. The complaint further alleges 
that ADT violated Section 5 by failing

[[Page 13653]]

to disclose that the experts were ADT's paid spokespersons.
    The proposed order includes injunctive relief to address these 
alleged violations and requires ADT to follow certain monitoring and 
compliance procedures related to its use of paid spokespersons.
    Part I of the proposed order prohibits ADT, in connection with the 
advertising of any security or monitoring product or service, from 
misrepresenting that a discussion or demonstration of such product or 
service is an independent review provided by an impartial expert.
    Part II of the proposed order requires ADT, in connection with the 
advertising of any security or monitoring product by means of an 
endorsement, to disclose clearly and prominently a material connection, 
if one exists, between the endorser and ADT.
    Part III of the proposed order requires ADT to take all reasonable 
steps to remove, within seven days of service of the order, any 
demonstration, review, or endorsement, by an endorser with a material 
connection to ADT, that does not comply with Parts I and II of the 
order.
    Part IV of the proposed order sets out certain monitoring and 
compliance obligations that ADT must meet with respect to any endorser 
with a material connection to ADT, including: obtaining signed 
acknowledgements from such endorsers that they will disclose their 
connection to ADT; monitoring the endorsers' media appearances and 
online reviews; terminating endorsers who fail to disclose their 
connection to ADT; and maintaining records of its monitoring efforts.
    Parts V through VIII of the proposed order require ADT to: Keep 
copies of relevant consumer complaints and inquiries and documents 
demonstrating order compliance; provide copies of the order to 
officers, employees, and others with responsibilities with respect to 
the subject matter of the order; notify the Commission of changes in 
corporate structure that might affect compliance obligations under the 
order; and file compliance reports with the Commission.
    Part IX provides that the order will terminate after twenty (20) 
years, with certain exceptions.
    The purpose of this analysis is to facilitate public comment on the 
proposed order, and it is not intended to constitute an official 
interpretation of the complaint or proposed order, or to modify the 
proposed order's terms in any way.

    By direction of the Commission.
