Anti-Spam Policies

SI does not distribute unsolicited bulk advertising via email (spam). You may opt-out of any of our various email lists (which include new resources, occasional marketing emails, and newsletters). You may unsubscribe at any time, please see “Choice/Opt-out” Section below.

We do not share email addresses with outside companies who are not service providers or as described in this privacy policy, unless we request your permission, first. We will always give you the option not to receive our promotional emails or newsletters or to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions in each email or newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time. We conform to all state and federal laws regarding this issue.

In order to comply with the Federal CAN-SPAM Act of 2003, we may provide a list of email addresses of customers who have opted-out of email lists here at the Socionomics Institute to other companies that send email on our behalf (Email Service Providers). This suppression list is used solely for the purpose of preventing an unsubscribed SI customer from receiving SI-related emails from another company. We require all companies that send to their email lists on our behalf to sign an agreement prohibiting the suppression list from being used for any other purpose than not sending you our email.
