In question B1, the 2nd criterion doesn't seem to require a prior relationship with the sender. Regulations should ensure that this exemption can't be exploited for commercial purposes. A company that can make money when people respond to such a message shouldn't be exempted from the Act. For example, a company selling extended warranties shouldn't be allowed to use the "warranty information" exemption to send solicitations without complying with the Act.
