Our Mailing Lists
All of Our mailing lists are permission based. If you receive a mailing from us, you have either (1) opted-in to our mailing lists under your own volition, or (2) supplied your email address under your own volition directly to us via registering or enrolling as a member (independent consultant) of The Finance Institute. Under these circumstances, you have an existing business relationship with us. We do not send messages to individuals who do not fall into these categories. Our messages are only intended for email addresses on our mailing lists and only intended for email addresses enrolled in our Member (independent consultant) Database.
How to Subscribe to our Mailing Lists
If you are an approved member (independent consultant), you may self-subscribe to our Corporate News Mailing List.
How to Re-Subscribe to our Mailing Lists
If you have been removed from our mailing lists, either intentionally or un-intentionally, you may send a request for instructions to re-subscribe to our mailing lists by sending an email to email@example.com.
How to Unsubscribe
Each email we send contains an easy, automated way for you to cease receiving email from us. If you wish to unsubscribe from our mailing lists, simply follow the Unsubscribe or Update Profile links at the end of any email.
Inability to Unsubscribe
If you select the Unsubscribe link in one of our emails and an email address other than your email address is listed on the unsubscribe page, this means that your email address is not on our mailing list; you cannot unsubscribe from our mailing list if you are not subscribed. If this occurs, it means you have been sent our message from a third-party sender. If you continue with the unsubscribe process, you will not unsubscribe your email address (as you are not on our mailing list); you will only unsubscribe the email address of the third-party sender. This action by you will not result in the third-party sender ceasing to send our messages to you; it will only unsubscribe the third-party sender from our mailing list. The third-party sender will not be informed you have unsubscribed their address from our mailing list, and the third-party sender may still continue to send you our messages. If you encounter this situation, please forward a copy of that email with your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our messages are sent from email@example.com and are only intended for email addresses on our mailing lists. If you receive a message from an email address other firstname.lastname@example.org you received our message from a third-party sender; we did not send a message to you and you are not on our mailing lists. If you wish to be removed from the third-party sender’s mailing list, please make your request to the third-party sender for their review.
Notice to Third-Party Senders
Our messages are delivered to email addresses on our mailing lists, and are only intended for email addresses on our mailing lists. If you receive a message from email@example.com and then forward or send that message to another individual, you are acting as a third-party sender. In such cases, if the recipient of your message wishes to unsubscribe from receiving our messages, they will not be able to do so as they are not on our mailing lists. In those cases, the recipient of your message may report our Company as sending them a Spam message. In addition, if they continue with the unsubscribe process, they will not unsubscribe their email address, but will unsubscribe your email address. In the event you wish to forward or send our messages to other individuals: (1) they must have previously requested to receive messages from you regarding The Finance Institute, (2) you must provide them a mechanism to opt out from receiving messages regarding The Finance Institute from you, (3) you must remove our Company’s email address firstname.lastname@example.org from the message, and (4) you must remove the Unsubscribe link and/or Update Profile link from the message. The only exception to (3) and (4) is when a ‘Forward this Message’ link is listed at the bottom of the message; in such cases, you must use the ‘Forward this Message’ link to forward the message.
Spam is commercial email or unsolicited email which has not been requested by the recipient. Spam messages are the opposite of permission-based email which are normally anticipated, personal, relevant, and/or associated with a pre-existing business or personal relationship. Our mailing lists are permisson based. If you believe you received unsolicited email email@example.com please forward a copy of that email with your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Messages we send to our mailing lists are classified as Transactional based and / or Relationship based emails, and as such, are legitimate messages and not spam. If you received a message sent to you then you received a legitimate message from us, and as such, our messages should not be reported as spam. If you report a legitimate message as spam, you are allegedly making a false spam report.
False Spam Reporting
We fully support the efforts of various organizations which work to responsibly eliminate spam activities. However, if an individual has opted-in to receive email from us and/or has supplied their email address via registering or enrolling as a member (independent consultant), and then such individual falsely or maliciously files a spam complaint against us, we will cooperate fully with the appropriate agencies and file the false spam report incident with the proper authorities. In addition, if our investigations confirm such individual has filed a false spam report against us, we will remove such individual from our Associate Database, and any and all Associate Rights for such individual will immediately cease.
Reporting Third-Party Senders as Spam
We are not responsible for the mailing of any third-party sender who forwards our messages. However, if you believe you received an unsolicited message from us via a third-party sender, and you wish to report the third- party sender as spam, please forward a copy of that email to email@example.com.
Your Privacy Protection
We use appropriate security measures to protect against the loss, misuse, and alteration of data used by our system.
