We use a third-party email marketing platform to deliver emails. This company employs techniques for tracking open rates and click-throughs that use email addresses as an identifier.
You will be given the option to remove your name from our email list at the bottom of each email update. And, again, we will not sell, rent or trade your email address to a third party.
