Who will see the messages I send?
Only persons signed up for that discussion group will receive the messages. Also, to view the past messages in the archives, a person must be signed up for that discussion group.
Will I get ‘junk mail’ if I sign up for a Discussion Group?
No. We do not share your email information with anyone. We do not allow companies to advertise on our site either. We will not contact you personally unless there is a situation that we fell requires this. For instance, we may contact you if we have reason to believe your computer may have a virus because of an attachment you sent to the discussion group.
If you have further questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 800-746-8420. You will find our phone numbers, address, and e-mail addresses on the Contact Us section of the Answers4Families website.
