Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Disclosure
Major portions of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Disclosure are also applicable to this, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Disclosure. Therefore, it is strongly advised that all visitors on and donors to this site, (newlifehypnosis.org) read the FDA Disclosure first and then read this FTC Disclosure next. The FDA Disclosure contains information that the FTC may require to be disclosed to all visitors and donors on this website. And, therefore, is made a part of and referenced to this FTC Disclosure.
All letters of endorsement found in New Life Clinics Charitable Trust’s websites, including newlifehypnosis.org, were unsolicited letters sent to New Life Clinics® and/or New Life Clinics Charitable Trust™ voluntarily by donors and recipients of the Trust’s free, group, hypnotherapy, and/or Dr. Robert G. Dean’s hypnotherapy cassette tapes and/or CDs gifted to donors by the trust.
New Life Clinics Charitable Trust™ and New Life Clinics® have never paid any compensation of any kind to anyone for their endorsement of the Trust’s services and/or Dr. Robert G. Dean’s narrated audio and written materials and prerecorded media. It has occasionally invited donors to write to the Trust and Dr. Dean, their experiences and results after experiencing said hypnotherapy and prerecorded hypnosis media.
References listed in the Trust’s websites are those who have either requested or accepted a Hypnotherapy Services Grant created by New Life Clinics Charitable Trust and paid for with public donations given to the Trust. These grants were then gifted to large organizations, law enforcement agencies, Marine Veteran organizations, counties, cities, unions, colleges, and hospitals for the sole purpose of providing to their employees and employee dependents “services” involving free, group, clinical hypnotherapy for tobacco smoking cessation and weight reduction. Over 80 of these entities did, in fact, receive hypnotherapy services called for in the grants given to them and are made a reference the public may rely on for unbiased information as to the quality and superior services provided by the Trust in fulfilling its tax-exempt charitable purpose.
If, in the future, (after July 1st, 2011) the Trust’s marketing and advertising of its charitable services and distribution of Dr. Robert G. Dean’s prerecorded media to thank donors for their support of the Trust’s tax-exempt purpose contracts the services of a celebrity or individual of national fame to introduce and/or talk about or otherwise endorse the Trust’s services and distribution of Dr. Dean’s prerecorded media, it shall be disclosed in the said advertisement or commercial by said individual(s) that they, in fact, have experienced the Trust’s services and/or Dr. Dean’s prerecorded media and their comments of satisfaction regarding the same are sincere and not said due to the compensation paid to them by the Trust for their appearance and time. Compensation is paid to said individuals only for their appearance and time and not their endorsement. The fact will remain they did, or still do, use the Trust’s thank-you gifts given to them for their donation to the Trust, said services and/or Dr. Dean’s prerecorded media DOES HAVE SPECIFIED VALUE AND PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENTS THAT WERE OR ARE BENEFICIAL TO THEM regardless of their being a recipient of contract fees for their commercial appearance and time.
Claims made by New Life Clinics Charitable Trust and/or Dr. Robert G. Dean in any of the Trust’s websites are discussed and disclosed in detail in the Trust’s “Donation Agreement” published on said websites. In summary, said disclosures specify that when a visitor to said sites are advised that Dr. Dean’s hypnotic moods, hypnotic feelings, hypnosis sessions, or hypnotherapy session downloads or CDs will do something such a cause weight loss, reduce stress, end pain, stop tobacco smoking, cause desirable moods and feelings, etc. it means that is what happens to many who experience it. For instance, if a car manufacturer indicates you will enjoy the ride of their car, it’s obvious that not everyone will enjoy the ride that the manufacturer is talking about. Therefore, the statement is based upon the experience of the manufacturer with a large number of its customers who liked the ride of their car and, therefore, it’s implied and acceptable for the manufacturer to believe “you” (meaning everyone who reads and/or hears the claim will enjoy the ride of the car, even though not all, and/or you may not). This is marketing “puffery”, and so it is with the hypnosis provided to donors as a thank-you gift for their support of the Trust’s tax-exempt purpose. Consequently, when the Trust advertises to the public on its website, or otherwise, that Dr. Dean’s hypnosis or the hypnosis provided by contracted Doctors of Clinical Hypnotherapy will work and result in a specified benefit to the recipient of said therapy, it is true for many, but is not for “everyone”. Indeed, not everyone is capable of being hypnotized just like not everyone can properly and completely sense the ride of a car or understand what a nice ride in a car is.
