Link to Opt Out of ValPak Flyers

Gidday,

How to opt out of fliers from Valpak is not that difficult but you do need to allow 4-6 weeks before the process is complete.

Enter your full address exactly as you see it on the address label when you click here.

Online Mail with Earth Class Mail

Gidday,

Before we left for our sabbatical in New Zealand we signed up for a brilliant service called Earth Class Mail.

We get all of our mail online including packages, newspapers, statements, magazines. The mail is automatically scanned so we can see who and where it came from. If we want to see more, the documents inside can be scanned also. Of Course we can forward it or print it wherever we are. Everything else we do is online like banking, shopping, stop junk mail, so why not our mail?

If we decide the mail is Junk Mail then we can get it recycled or shredded and don’t ever have to see it again. Of course this would be after we go online to stopthejunkmail.com and stop the catalog!

For us it is a perfect online solution for all of our needs. It’s a one stop shop.

Cheerio,
Margot

Link to Opt Out of Advo Flyers

Gidday,

What happened to ADVO? Well they got taken over by Valassis last year.

You can still go to www.advo.com/consumersupport.html to opt out of ADVO flyers. It will take 5-6 weeks to become effective.

You can also call Valassis’ Consumer Assistance line toll free at 888-241-6760 (8:30am-5:00pm EST) or print this form and mail it in.

Yahoo to Allow Opt Out For Consumers

Gidday,

I just read in the Wall Street Journal today that Yahoo Inc. and other major online companies(such as Google Inc and Microsoft Corp) were sent letters by the House Energy and Commerce Committee. The letter asked the companies to respond to a number of questions related to their ad-targeting practices.

Yahoo Inc. has come out and responded favourably and said it will allow it’s users to Opt Out of receiving targeted ads. This kind of movement centers around whether online advertising violates consumer privacy.

Bravo Yahoo Inc.! I think that this is a huge step towards consumer privacy and ultimately consumers freedom of choice.

At www.stopthejunkmail.com we promote the importance of consumer privacy and choice by enabling our users to opt out of unwanted catalogs and direct mail they receive through the USPS. It is an ever growing problem and to see a company like Yahoo Inc. embrace this kind of privacy online is definitely a sign of the times.

Cheerio,
Margot
