requirements. You will only receive these messages if you have provided us with information that forms the basis of communication
with you, such as an email address. You agree to waive all rights to file complaints concerning unsolicited email
or spam from us since, by providing such information, you agree to receive communication from us or other related marketing
organizations you have approved. However, all email communication we send you will always contain an 'unsubscribe'

your name will be removed from our solicitation databases within a reasonable time. If you choose to opt-out,
you will not receive notices of updates, special offers, prices, and deals, new or related product announcements or other
promotional material from us. Should you continue to receive unwanted commercial email from us after unsubscribing,
please send a printed copy of the message you received to our Designated Agent by mail and so we can promptly investigate
