Who hasn’t ever gotten an e-mail and been afraid to hit the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom? We are told this is the way the Spammers determine when they have a ‘live’ e-mail… then they go and sell that e-mail address to lists that will sell it on to all kinds of businesses and Spammers. But our e-mail list you can subscribe to is different, we will go and remove you, and not sell your e-mail on… so the old saw is not applicable in every case.
But what of those annoying phone calls at dinner from telemarketers? What of credit card solicitations? There are ways you can opt-out of those deals without getting burned… go to a great article in the NY Times called ‘Don’t Call, Don’t Write, Let Me Be’. In this you will find the number to compel phone solicitors to stop calling your house….go to donotcall.gov. Or call toll free, (888)382-1222.
You can also end credit card offers by going to (888) 567-8688. They will want your SSAN, but you will end the unsolicited credit card offers, (but not if you are a business…Rivenrock Gardens continues to get offers, but John and Vickie the owners do not).
Getting lots of unsolicited e-mail and other offers through the phone is a hassle, and no one likes this form of ‘in-yer-face-advertising). We use our e-mail list to (mostly) pass on useful information as to the specials we might have coming up due to weather or other factors. Also our e-mail list is a double-opt-in, meaning first you have to enter your e-mail to the form, you then get an e-mail sent to you which you must click the link to let us know it is really your e-mail and that you really do wish to join. Yes, some folks might say it’s a double hassle, but it ensures that people cannot maliciously input someone elses e-mail causing us to ‘spam’ them unintentionally.
Privacy is something we treasure in our own private lives, and we wish to extend the same courtesy to all we deal with.
