ARTICLE 1 - General Provisions
Section 11217.


(a) The following communications shall not be deemed an advertisement or promotion and are exempt from this chapter so long as the communications are in compliance with Section 11245:

(1) Any stockholder communication, such as an annual report or interim financial report, proxy material, a registration statement, a securities prospectus, a registration, a property report, or other material required to be delivered to a prospective purchaser by an agency of any state or the federal government.

(2) Any oral or written statement disseminated by a developer to broadcast or print media, other than paid advertising or promotional material, regarding plans for the acquisition or development of time-share property. However, any rebroadcast or any other dissemination of the oral statements to a prospective purchaser by a developer or any person in any manner, or any distribution of copies of newspaper magazine articles or press releases, or any other dissemination of the written statements to a prospective purchaser by a developer or any person in any manner, shall constitute an advertisement.

(3) Any advertisement or promotion in any medium to the general public if the advertisement or promotion clearly states that it is not an offer in any jurisdiction in which any applicable registration requirements have not been fully satisfied.

(4) Any audio, written, or visual publication or material relating to the availability of any accommodations for transient rental, so long as a sales presentation is not a term or condition of the availability of the accommodations and so long as the failure of any transient renter to take a tour of a time-share property or attend a sales presentation does not result in any reduction in the level of services that would otherwise be available to the transient renter.

(b) Any communication regarding a time-share interest that is addressed to any person who has previously executed a contract for the sale or purchase of that time-share interest and that does not constitute a solicitation of a time-share interest, shall be exempt from this chapter.
