See FTC Rule 4.1(b), 16 CFR 4.1(b). These requirements prevent the improper use of confidential nonpublic information acquired while working at the FTC.

See FTC Rule 4.11(e), 16 CFR 4.11(e).

The FTC also allows consumers to report fraud, identity theft, National Do Not Call Registry violations, and other violations of law through telephone hotlines and three online consumer report forms. Consumers may call a hotline phone number or log on to the FTC’s website to report violations using the applicable reporting forms. The provision of this information is voluntary.

In addition, following an order of divestiture in a merger matter, the FTC’s Bureau of Competition’s Compliance Division conducts brief calls with acquirers of divested assets to assess the effectiveness of these divestitures.

Rule 1.2, 16 CFR 1.2. In addition, the FTC's ethics regulations require 
former employees who are seeking ethical clearance to participate in 
FTC matters to submit screening affidavits to facilitate resolution of 
their requests. See FTC Rule 4.1(b), 16 CFR 4.1(b). These requirements

not a party. See FTC Rule 4.11(e), 16 CFR 4.11(e). These rules require 
persons seeking testimony or material from the Commission to submit a 
statement in support of the request setting forth the party's interest 
in the case or matter, the relevance of the desired testimony or 
material, and a discussion of whether it is reasonably available from 
other sources.
    The FTC also allows consumers to report fraud, identity theft, 
National Do Not Call Registry violations, and other violations of law 
through telephone hotlines and three online consumer report forms. 
Consumers may call a hotline phone number or log on to the FTC's

provision of this information is voluntary. The FTC also conducts 
customer satisfaction surveys regarding the support that the 
Commission's Consumer Response Center provides to consumers to obtain

FTC's Competition Advocacy Program draws on the Commission's expertise

state legislatures, courts, and other state and federal agencies to 
consider the effects of proposed actions on consumers and competition. 
Statutory authority for the advocacy program is found in part in 
sections 6(a) and (f) of the FTC Act. 15 U.S.C. 46(a) and (f). In 
addition, following an order of divestiture in a merger matter, the
