How Email Communications Work
We send out various emails to people and entities who interact with the Website, such as e-newsletters and special events (“Marketing Emails”). Individuals and entities that register with the Website will automatically be subscribed to receive certain Marketing Emails.
Marketing Emails contain an unsubscribe option that you can follow at any point if you wish to stop receiving some, or all, Marketing Emails. If you have received our Marketing Emails mistakenly, or wish to stop receiving them, you can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will remove you from our list.
Phase One also sends various transactional (e.g., donation receipts, etc.) and outreach emails (together “Donor Emails”). Unless such Donor Emails are excepted as part of an ongoing commercial relationship, or otherwise, by CANSPAM, they will contain an unsubscribe link.
Access To Your Credit Card Number
