Ways to Protect Your Privacy

Marketing Lists

The Direct Marketing Association's (DMA) mail, email, and telephone preference services allow consumers to opt out of direct mail marketing, email marketing and/or telemarketing solicitations from many national companies.

To remove your name from many national direct mail lists, write:

DMA Mail Preference Service

Preference Service Manager

1120 Avenue of the Americas

New York, NY 10036-6700

Because your name will not be on their lists, it also means that these companies can't rent or sell your name to other companies.
