The Whole Smiths may use your e-mail address in the future to contact you regarding the site, however, an opt-out will always be provided.  Your name and website may be displayed on the site if you post a comment or a message in the forum.  However, your e-mail address and privacy will always be kept secure. Always.

Opting Out

If the Whole Smiths chooses to send out newsletter updates in the future and we have your email address on file, you may receive a copy of our newsletter.  However, at the bottom of every newsletter will be an easy way to opt-out.  The editors of our site hate SPAM as much as you and have no intention of filling up e-mail boxes with unwanted messages.
