I don't like to get into semantics / dictionary battles; they usually
turn into tedious "I said / you said / 'Webster's' said" cascades with
12 levels of quoting.

But that looks like a contradiction to *me*.  You can announce
whatever you want concerning an event and times, sez she -- the only
info you can't list is contact info (without prior permission) and the
exact location.

Ditto.  No, you *can* "disclose a method of reaching the 'contact
person'" without prior permission.  It just can't involve a name and
address for someone who hasn't agreed.  It could be an intermediary
who has agreed to forward calls.  It could be an anonymous e-mail
forwarding box.  It could be a standard P.O. Box.
