The visitor's contact information is also used to contact the visitor when necessary. visitors may opt-out and be removed from any list containing that user's e-mail address and therefore not receive any communication from OMC. Opting-out (removal/unsubscribing from the e-mail list) is as simple as sending an e-mail from the user's e-mail address of record to firstname.lastname@example.org and typing "unsubscribe" in the subject line.
