- Mailing list to receive FORM MARKS Magazine
We may offer a free subscription to FORM MARKS Magazine to users. EFCO gathers the addresses of users who voluntarily subscribe. Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by contacting EFCO with the contact information provided in every magazine.
We may offer interactive polls to users so they can easily share their opinions with other users and see what our audience thinks about important issues. Opinions or other responses to polls are aggregated and are not identifiable to any particular user. EFCO may use a system to “
tag” users after they have voted, so they can vote only once on a particular question. This tag is not correlated with information about individual users.
EFCO may occasionally conduct optional user surveys to better target our content to our audience. We do not share information about specific individuals with any third party.
