Please allow me some time to read your facts and type my response.

If you receive an email regarding a phone call for an extra price that comes directly from the website and not from me and I have no control over the sending of the email. I don't take part in the telephone program and only work through this format and under your facts this format should be sufficient.

It wouldn't be legal for them to tap your phone or monitor your internet use except if you are at work or they have a court order allowing them to do so (which is extremely unlikely). There is really no law that prevents them from following you although a lot of that depends on the reasons. There are stalking laws in almost every state now but stalking laws do not really address situations like you are describing.

Just to be clear, the courts have allowed employers to monitor internet use and telephone calls made while employees are at work.

If your question has been answered then I'd offer my best wishes to you and ask that you please not forget to leave a 5 Star Positive Rating so I receive credit for my work. Of course, please feel free to ask any follow-up questions in this thread. I want to be sure all of your questions are answered.
