ProhibitoryOrder

There is something you can do about unwanted sexually oriented advertising in your mail.

If you are receiving unwanted sexually oriented advertisements coming through the mail to your home or business, there are two Postal Service® programs you can use to help protect yourself (and your eligible minor children). Please read the description of these programs on the reverse side of this page, then follow the instructions below for completing the application.

Here's what to do if you wish to apply for a Prohibitory Order against a particular mailer whose advertising offers to sell matter you consider erotically arousing or sexually provocative.

Complete the Application for Prohibitory Order section on page 2 and 3.

If applicable, complete the InformationAbout Your Children section, providing full names and birth dates.

Provide mailer information.

Sign and date the application in the Authorization section and submit it with the offending mailpiece (which must be opened) to any Post Office™. Keep pages 1 and 3 for your records.

When your application has been processed, we will send you information about the effective date of your order and the procedure for reporting a violation of your protected status.

The Prohibitory Order program provides a deterrent to continued mailings by a specific mailer advertising a product or service you consider erotically arousing or sexually provocative. Your Prohibitory Order would be violated if, 30 days or more after receiving it, the mailer sends you any further mail.

Here's how to be placed on the Postal Service’s list of those not wishing to receive sexually oriented advertisements through the mail.

Complete the Application for Listing section on page 2 and 3.

If applicable, complete the InformationAbout Your Children section, providing full names and birth dates.

Sign and date the application in the Authorization section and submit it to any Post Office. Keep pages 1 and 3 for your records.

When your application has been processed, we will send you information about the effective date of your listing and the procedure for reporting a violation of your protected status.

The prohibitory list provides a deterrent to the mailing of unsolicited sexually oriented advertisements to protected persons. It would be a violation of your protected status if anyone makes such a mailing to you when your name and address have been on the list more than 30 days.

Additional Instructions

The application must be legible and complete. (Please Print.)

Use the name and address by which you customarily receive mail.

If there is insufficient room to list all minor children, continue the list using page 2 of an additional PS Form 1500. Be sure

to sign the continuation page in the Authorization section.

Postal Service Programs for ProtectionAgainst Unwanted Sexually Oriented Mail

If you are offended by receiving unwanted sexually oriented advertising in your mail, or are concerned about your minor children being exposed to such advertising, there are two programs you can use to help protect yourself and your children.

Application for Prohibitory Order

Under the PanderingAdvertisements Statute, 39 USC 3008, if you are the addressee of an advertisement, andconsider the matter (product or service) that it offers for sale to be "erotically arousing or sexually provocative," you can obtain a Prohibitory Order against the mailer. You apply for the order by submitting the entire advertising mailpiece (the original, NOT a photocopy) with a properly completed application (page 2 of this form). Please note: Even if there is an offer to sell a product or service stated on the exterior of the mailpiece, if the piece has a sealed envelope, cover, or wrapper, please be sure it is opened before you submit your application.

Minor children who has not attained the age of 19 yearsand residing with you may be included in the application. If the addressee is a minor, you may apply for an order in your minor child's name. If the addressee is a deceased person whose mail you are entitled to receive, you may apply for an order in the deceased's name. The order directs the mailer to make no mailings whatsoever to anyone named in the order, effective on the 30th calendar day after the mailer receives it.

Application for Listing

Under the Sexually OrientedAdvertisements Statute, 39 USC 3010, the Postal Service™ maintains a list of persons who have informed us they do not wish to receive sexually oriented advertisements in their mail. When informing us, such persons may also have their minor children who has not attained the age of 19 years, who are residing with them or are under their care, custody, or supervision, included on the list. The statute defines the term "sexually oriented advertisement" essentially as an advertisement depicting or explicitly describing human genitalia, sexual intercourse, sadistic or masochistic acts, or related erotic subjects, and prohibits mailing such an advertisement to those whose names and addresses have been on the list for more than 30 days.

You can be listed by filing a completed application (page 2 of this form). Because being added to the list does not depend on having received a sexually oriented advertisement, do not submit mailpieces with your completed application. If you wish to have a listing for more than one address, you must complete a separate application for each address. The list is provided to mailers that subscribe to the USPS Prohibitory Order Listing service in an effort to have your name removed from their mailing lists. However, it does not guarantee the removal of your name and address from all mailing lists.

Submitting YourApplication

Submit completed applications to obtain the protection offered by one or both of these statutes to any Post Office™. When your application has been processed, we will notify you of the effective date of your protected status and how to report any violation.

Your obtaining the protection offered through these two programs makes sending prohibited mail to you unlawful. However, it does not make such mailings physically impossible. If you receive an apparently violative mailpiece, contact your Post Office or refer to your notification letter for instructions on submitting the piece as evidence for possible enforcement action.

Please contact any Post Office if, after reading these instructions, you still have questions about applying for the protection offered by 39 USC 3008 and 39 USC 3010.

PrivacyAct Statement

Your information will be used to maintain a list of addressees that do not want sexually oriented advertising material mailed to them, available for mailers to comply with statutory requirements; and to maintain records as necessary to provide protections requested by an addressee against individual mailers under the PanderingAdvertisement statutes. Collection is authorized by 39 USC 401, 403, 404, 3008, 3010, and 3403. Providing the information is voluntary, but if not provided, we may not process your request. We do not disclose your information to third parties without your consent, except to facilitate the transaction, to act on your behalf or request, or as legally required. This includes the following limited circumstances: to a congressional office on your behalf; to financial entities regarding financial transaction issues; to a USPS® auditor; to entities, including law enforcement, as required by law or in legal proceedings; and to contractors and other entities aiding us to fulfill the service (service providers).
