The disclosure shall be provided in two or more of the following forms: when an electronic mail message is sent or received by a New Jersey member, in a "click-through" or other similar presentation requiring a member from this State to acknowledge that they have received the information required by this act, on the profile describing a member to a New Jersey member, and on the web-site pages or homepage of the Internet dating service used when a New Jersey member signs up.
