May a seller prohibit display of her property address, AVMs, and blogging related to her property on IDX sites while permitting those functionalities on non-IDX Internet advertising?

With respect to display of the seller's property address, ACTRIS rule 8.6 prohibits display of the seller's property or property address (or both) where sellers have directed their listing brokers to withhold their listing or property address from display on the Internet. "Display on the Internet" includes IDX sites, VOWs, and third‐party aggregator sites.

With respect to AVMs and blogging features, ACTRIS rule 8.11 deals with sellers who have “elected to have one or both of these features disabled or discontinued on displays controlled by Participant.” While not as broad as the "on the Internet" prohibition established in Section 8.6, it applies to all websites of participants, including their IDX sites and VOWs.
