Default Pre-match

Guys, just curious
What do you know about prematch?
Is it legal, to begin with? How is it implemented technically? What are the risks for program and for the applicant?
No, I was not offered with the prematch position, I just want to fill this gap in my knowledge))

It's against the rule for programs that participate in the match to offer prematch. But there are some programs that are all "out" of the match and does not participate in NRMP. Its perfectly legal for them to give out prematch offers.
