Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

I am sorry I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR, as your previous contributor was in Canada and sent it over to us in the US legal section.

What is it specifically you are seeking from us, since we cannot represent anyone from this site as it is forbidden by state laws.
