Marketing & Interest-Based Advertising Choices
You may choose how we contact you for marketing-related communications. You may request not to receive marketing from Electrify America by sending an email to [email protected] or by using the “Unsubscribe” link in any marketing email you receive from us. We may still contact you for non-promotional purposes, such as to provide receipts or send you messages related to your account with us. We have third-party advertising partners that may collect information about your visits to our websites, digital properties and other non-affiliated websites and/or apps in order to provide advertisements to you on our properties and across other websites and apps. Some of those ads may be interest-based, meaning that they are intended to be relevant to you based on the information these ad networks collect about your visits to our websites and digital properties and other non-affiliated web sites or apps over time.
