Any info would be appreciated.

It is a con as the channels they will offer you will be the mainly rubbishy stuff on the above site! Dont waste your money. As far as I see it that is a scam.

The use of information as described below may or may not be how information that is collected is customarily used by this site. While actual use of any information collected may be used quite conservatively, you must assume that it is not. You must assume that information collected is shared with other persons or entities for commercial purposes. While this is uncommon in practice, you must assume that it is as you make your decision whether or not to view or interact with this website. This type of shared information may include your name, address, phone number, email address and buying habits, as well as other information. This information may be used for general commercial solicitation by this website or other persons it is sold to, rented to, or shared with. "

Nice bit in the privacy policy regarding what they will do with your data yet the front page says.

"Important: We will never sell, rent or give your email to any third party."

Basically the site must be a con as legally they have broken the agreement they set out.

"By providing to this website information that forms the basis of communication with you, such as an email address, you waive all rights to file complaints concerning unsolicited email or spam from this website since, by providing such information, you agree to receive communication from us or other marketing organizations. However, all email communication with you shall contain an 'unsubscribe' link where you may notify the website that you no longer wish to receive solicitations or information from the website and your name will be removed from the general solicitation database."

Yet further proving they are breaking the agreement you sign up to.

And the final pudding

"You may direct questions, comments or reports to: [email protected]"

How nice a non required email address which cannot be traced. If it was legitimate it would be related to the address. Such as people at PCA have addresses.
