Federal law also gives you the right to limit some but not all marketing from GradGuard’s affiliated companies. You may limit our affiliated companies, such as any financial services affiliates operating under the brand names listed at this webpage from marketing their products or services to you based on your Personal Information that we share with them. Your choice to limit marketing offers from an affiliated company will apply for at least five (5) years from when you tell us your choice. Before your choice to limit marketing expires, you will receive a renewal notice that will allow you to continue to limit marketing offers from any GradGuard affiliated company for at least another five (5) years. If you have already made a choice to limit marketing offers from our affiliated companies, you do not need to act again until you receive the renewal notice. If you prefer to limit the marketing from an affiliated company, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 866-985-7598. Please note that your choice to limit marketing offers will not apply in certain circumstances as provided under applicable law, such as when you have an account or policy with the affiliated company that is marketing to you. An opt-out request from one joint customer will apply to all joint customers on the policy or account.
