Please note that ARDA will never send you an email requesting your password, credit card number, social security number or other similar personal or private identification information.

The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.

To be in compliance with the CAN-SPAM Act, we agree to do the following:

  • Never use false or misleading header information
  • Never use deceptive subject lines
  • Identify the message as an ad, or promotion, if it is indeed one
  • Include the physical address of our business or headquarters
  • Provide a link to unsubscribe at the bottom of each email
  • Honor opt-out requests promptly
  • Monitor third-party email marketing services for compliance, if one is used
