3. ADVERTISING. At the point of checkout, you are provided with an opportunity to opt-out of our internet and print advertisements. There is a separate opt-out check box for our direct mail advertising and a separate opt-out check box for our internet advertising. Unless you specifically opt-out, you agree that we may send to your email address or to your billing address an occasional internet email or direct mail advertisement, as applicable, which promote products and services of similar type and scope as those items or services you have purchased at our website. Additionally, you have the choice of opting out of our internet advertising each time you receive one of our email announcements or advertisements.

We attempt to cross reference all opt-out requests with data we receive from outside sources, and we strive to honor all advertising opt-out requests from our customers.
