Form and content of advertisements.

Whether an advertisement has a capacity or tendency to mislead or deceive shall be determined by the insurance commissioner from the overall impression that the advertisement may be reasonably expected to create upon a person of average education or intelligence, within the segment of the public to which it is directed.
(2) Advertisements shall be truthful and not misleading in fact or in implication. Words or phrases, the meaning of which is clear only by implication or by familiarity with insurance terminology, shall not be used.
