If you wish to stop receiving future communications from us, please follow the instructions at the end of each such marketing message or see the “Opt-Out/Unsubscribe” section below.

At times, we may want to contact you via telephone regarding your use of the GeoInvesting™ Offerings. To enable us to contact you by telephone regarding your use of the GeoInvesting™ Offerings, you agree that by submitting your Personal Data by and through the GeoInvesting™ Offerings, and where you provide your consent as required under the GDPR or we have another valid legal basis under the GDPR, such act constitutes an inquiry and/or application for purposes of the Amended Telemarketing Sales Rule (16 CFR §310 et seq.), as amended from time to time (the “Rule”) and applicable state do-not-call regulations.  As such, notwithstanding that your telephone number may be listed on the Federal Trade Commission’s Do-Not-Call List, and/or on applicable state do-not-call lists, we retain the right to contact you via telemarketing in accordance with the Rule and applicable state do-not-call regulations.
