Instructions for opting out (taking your email address off our list so that you do not receive further emails from us) will be included at the bottom of any email we send out.
To quote a paragraph from www.whitehouse.gov:
“Spam is a problem for Americans. E-mail is an extremely important and effective means of communications and is used by millions of Americans on a daily basis for personal and commercial purposes. Its convenience and efficiency, however, are increasingly threatened by the rise in spam. Spam currently accounts for over half of all e-mail traffic. Today, most spam is fraudulent or deceptive in nature. The growth in spam also imposes significant costs on Internet Service Providers (ISPs), businesses, and other organizations, since they can only handle a finite volume of e-mail without making further investments in their infrastructure.”
Remember: Information you provide to us is by your choice. We will never solicit personal information via email and ask all internet users to refrain from responding to any such email claiming to be from American Gold Investing or any such unsolicited email from anyone. Email from us will only be for the purpose to inform our list of email recipients of new products, offerings or sales. A response from you will never be required unless you are asking to be removed from our list.
