Email Address Privacy
APH will not share your email address with other organizations.
Catalog Mailing List Privacy
If you request that we mail you a catalog or other promotional materials, APH will store your mailing address for catalog future mailings. At your request, we will remove your name from our catalog mailing list immediately. Email email@example.com or call 1-800-223-1839 to have your address removed. We will not lend or sell your catalog mailing address to other organizations.
Donor Mailing List Privacy
APH maintains a donor mailing list that is separate from our catalog mailing list. In order to keep our costs of fundraising low, APH may occasionally share donor mailing lists with other nonprofit organizations for a one-time use by these nonprofits. If you are a donor to APH and wish that we withhold your mailing information from list exchanges, please call Bob Belknap toll-free at 1-800-223-1839, ext. 362. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the email subject field, please type "Mailing List Opt Out" and provide your name, email address, and the postal address used in making your donation to APH. APH donor lists are never sold to other organizations.
