We have implemented certain physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect from recipients of our marketing campaigns and visitors to our web site, and from our marketing partners, advertisers, and other third parties. Visitors should consider any electronic communication that they transmit to us (such as data, questions or answers, comments, suggestions, or other communications) to be non-confidential. We will not be liable or responsible if information that belongs to an individual is intercepted and used by an unintended recipient, or is otherwise accessed and used without our written permission. By participating in our marketing campaigns or visiting our web site, you assume this risk.
Marketing Through Permissive Means:
We strive to deliver customer-oriented results in our marketing practices. We allow individuals to identify personal preferences and needs, and then only communicate with them regarding those specific areas for which they have identified an interest. Using our opt-in survey method, we better understand the individuals’ personal needs and make all reasonable attempts to tailor our marketing efforts accordingly.
Unsubscribe and Opt-In / Opt-Out Policies:
Worth Advertising Group offers visitors to our Web site and recipients of our marketing campaigns the opportunity to “opt-out” of receiving communications from us and to opt-in and opt-out of receiving communications from our marketing partners, advertisers, and other third parties. If you have subscribed to our service and wish to stop receiving any future communications from us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or unsubscribe using the following link: email@example.com. These unsubscribe options are also included in email communications that you receive from us (whether sent on our own behalf or on behalf of third parties). Please note that if you wish to stop receiving communications from any of our marketing partners, advertisers, or other third parties you must communicate with these entities directly. We are unable to process unsubscribe requests for any of our marketing partners, advertisers, or other third parties. We take all reasonable measures to ensure that your unsubscribe requests are fulfilled in a timely manner. However, despite these precautions, there is always the chance that after you unsubscribe you may receive additional communications from us that may have resulted from an inadvertent technical or other processing error. If this happens, please notify us of those communications by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take steps to rectify the situation.
