(B) may not make a follow-up, individualized response to a person in this state that involves effecting or attempting to effect a transaction in securities, or the rendering of personalized investment advisory services for compensation, unless the issuer, broker-dealer, state investment adviser, federal covered adviser, agent, or investment adviser representative complies with the registration or notice requirements of AS 45.55, or unless an applicable exemption or exclusion from those requirements applies;

(2) the internet communication contains a mechanism, including technical "firewalls" or other implemented policies and procedures, reasonably designed to ensure that before any subsequent, direct communication with prospective customers or clients in this state, the issuer, broker-dealer, state investment adviser, federal covered adviser, agent, or investment adviser representative complies with the registration or notice requirements of AS 45.55, or qualifies for an exemption or exclusion from those requirements;

(B) the broker-dealer, state investment adviser, or federal covered adviser with whom the agent or investment adviser representative is associated retains responsibility for reviewing and approving the content of any internet communication by an agent or investment adviser representative;

(C) the broker-dealer, state investment adviser, or federal covered adviser with whom the agent or investment adviser representative is associated first authorizes the distribution of information on the particular products and services through the internet communication; and

(D) in disseminating information through the internet communication, the agent or investment adviser representative acts within the scope of the authority granted by the broker-dealer, state investment adviser, or federal covered adviser.

(b) This section does not relieve an issuer, broker-dealer, state investment adviser, federal covered adviser, agent, or investment adviser representative from compliance with the applicable registration or notice requirements or antifraud or related provisions of AS 45.55.
