Click To Optin Subscriptions
One of the ways that subscribers join our email newsletter database is through ‘Click To Optin’ technology. All of the methods subscribers can subscribe to our newsletters are US CAN SPAM compliant. These methods allow subscribers to subscribe to newsletters they find interesting quickly and easily. Opting out from our publications is easy and fast.

The Click To Optin process operates as follows. A person sees a report, newsletter or publication they are interested in receiving and choose to subscribe to such publication to receive the deliverable by email. When they click the ‘Click To Optin’ link within the email they received promoting the offer for the deliverable they are interested in, the subscription to the chosen publication is at that point complete and their email address and IP address are automatically transferred to our email platform and/or advertising tracking technology. Click To Optin may utilize Bonus Addon Publications as described below.
We may also make available to advertisers ‘Click To Optin’ advertisements that would allow them to generate subscribers to their newsletters using the same ‘Click To Optin’ process described above.
Bonus Addon Publications
The subscriber may also be subscribed to up to two (2) additional internal or external advertiser newsletters, as per the disclosure in the email advertisement or optin page. This process is called Bonus Addon Publications. From that point on, the subscriber will continue to receive emails from the publication he subscribed to as well as email communications from up to two (2) additional publications. If the subscriber wishes to unsubscribe from any of the publications to which they are subscribed (including the Bonus Addon Publications), they can just open a recent email and click on the unsubscribe link the footer of such message.
