Email sent to TCTA through the email tag, "webmaster," or in any manner to any email address at the domains registered to TCTA, shall be considered a request for general information from the Association and will not be considered a request for legal advice or counsel from TCTA staff attorneys. Any email directed to TCTA is not encrypted and could be intercepted by persons other than the intended recipient. By submitting email to TCTA, the person submitting the email expressly consents to an unencrypted reply that could be intercepted by persons other than the intended recipient. Members requesting legal services are directed to contact TCTA through our toll-free telephone number. In no event are legal services provided to persons who are not members of TCTA or who were not members of TCTA at the time of an action, omission or occurrence giving rise to the problem for which legal services are requested.
