We're really very private.
The information that you give us and information about your order may be combined with other personally identifiable information (such as demographic information and past purchase history) available from our records and other sources. This information will be used to make our future marketing efforts more efficient. This information may also be shared with our third-party service providers that assist us with our marketing efforts and with other marketers whose products or services we feel may be of interest to you. If you prefer that we do not share your name and address with other marketers, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not rent, sell or share our email list. If you do not wish to receive our email anymore, an unsubscribe button is located at the bottom of each email for your convenience. Or you can send us an email with the subject line "Unsubscribe me" to: email@example.com.
Our reader survey is entirely voluntary and you may decline to participate by not clicking on the link that says "survey." We're not very tricky that way. The information is not tied to you personally in any way; we only use it for demographic purposes.
