You may indicate to us that you do not wish to receive marketing information from us by unsubscribing from all of our newsletters. You may ask that we not distribute your contact information to other parties by opting out of our "Promotional" mailing list. You have this option each time you purchase from us, or by sending us a letter or by telephoning us. Because e-mail delivery is not reliable, we do not recommend that you depend solely upon e-mail. Using our web site is the most reliable opt-out method. We will use our best efforts to honor your request to not be contacted again.
If we contact you using a list provided by an unrelated third party, we will not automatically add you to our own lists unless you choose to do business directly with us or explicitly grant your permission.
Our servers are protected behind a firewall that has been designed to limit access and to safeguard the information we keep about you. While we take steps to protect your privacy, computer systems are complicated and it is possible that there may be an unforseen way to bypass security.

You grant to us the right to use, modify, license, and publish materials which you submit.
