Handcraftedmodelships Email and Other Communications
When you provide us your email address, we may send you emails necessary to process your order or respond to a request. For example, after you place an order at handcraftedmodelships.com, you will receive an email confirmation and, in most cases, an email with package tracking information.
Additionally, if you have purchased from Handcraftedmodelships or subscribed to our newsletters or otherwise have chosen to receive communications from us, we may occasionally update you on special opportunities via email or other methods.
You can choose to be removed from our mailing lists at any time by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org from the address to be unsubscribed or by using the link provided in each edition our emails. As we only wish to send email to our opt-in customers and do not intentionally spam, please be certain that you have sent this unsubscribe request from the address to be removed. If you have another email address you would like removed, then please send another letter from that address. Because we plan our mailings in advance, it may take several weeks for your request to become effective. If, due to human error, you continue to receive our communications, please contact us again and we will make every effort to correct the situation.
If you have any questions or comments, then please contact us or call us at 1 800 313-9128.
