Advertising & Marketing

Emails

Most emails sent for marketing purposes are sent via a third-party service, such as MailChimp. We may use tracking pixels and other technologies to track when emails have been opened and which links in an email have been clicked. This helps us to measure the performance of our email campaigns. If you do not want to receive marketing emails from us, you can click unsubscribe at the bottom of the email.

Opt-Out

You may opt out of the automated collection of information by third-party ad networks for the purpose of delivering advertisements tailored to your interests, by visiting the consumer opt-out page for the Self-Regulatory Principles for Online Behavioral Advertising at https://www.aboutads.info/choices/
