WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE THIS INFORMATION?

(Statistical information helps our partners and sponsors to understand the collective characteristics of our members and to target their messages effectively.) FreeTrainers.com will provide personal information if it has a good faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with the law or legal process or to protect the interests of FreeTrainers.com or others.

YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS

The FreeTrainers.com system is designed so that when a message is sent to you, the sender does not see your name or email address. Messages are addressed to groups, not individuals; as a recipient, your email address is kept confidential. However, the sender of a message is always identified, and the sender's return email address is disclosed. (This policy promotes responsible use of the email system and directs our members to the right source if they feel they are receiving inappropriate messages.) You should be aware that when you send a message you are disclosing your identity and email address, and any information you voluntarily disclose may be used by others to contact you directly. (For more information about our email system, see our Anti-spam Policy, below.)

WHAT IS "SPAM"?

"Spam" is unsolicited email. The term usually refers to mass mailings that contain advertisements or that are undesirable or inappropriate. However, some people use the term to refer to any unwanted email message. Internet users sometimes find that unwanted solicitations begin or increase after they give their email address to a person or organization with which they are unfamiliar. This is why some individuals guard their email addresses so closely.

HOW DOES FREETRAINERS.COM PROTECT YOU FROM SPAM?

The FreeTrainers.com system only delivers messages to you from its own servers and never gives other organizations your email address to contact you separately. Your address remains completely confidential.

HERE ARE SOME OF THE WAYS WE PREVENT SPAM:

We never give your email address to anyone without your consent. All messages are sent to groups, not individuals. Your messages are grouped and sent to you at intervals. Every message has the name and email address of the sender. Recipients are anonymous, but senders are identified. This allows you to contact the sender of any message you receive. This also makes it easier to report abuse of the FreeTrainers.com email system, if it occurs. Every message has genuine information that relates your specified interests or other information that you have requested..
