Opting Out of Strategic Marketing’s Database. You may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, to opt out or request to be deleted from Strategic Marketing’s database. If you do so, please include the following information (a) first and last name, and (b) current address. You may also provide us with other addresses you have lived at during the previous five years, which may help us to opt you out even if we have not yet acquired your current address information. If you decide to opt out in this way, we will stop using data in Strategic Marketing’s proprietary database to help our customers send or tailor ads and content to you, including through email, direct mail or online display marketing.

We may also retain certain information for products that involve risk, compliance or anti-fraud measures.
Unsubscribing from Our Emails. When we send an email to you (whether on our behalf or on behalf of a Client), we will provide a way for you to opt out of receiving similar emails in the future. Usually, this appears as an “unsubscribe” or “opt out” link in the footer of the email.
