However, they will not receive invitation comments, order confirmations, product brochures, brochures, product tips, FAQs or advice, stock notifications, delivery delays, or any discount if they opt-in, Replace or substitute products and so on mail. None of these are considered "important" emails, so buyers who choose to opt-out will not receive them. However, there is a loophole available.
