Area II Opt-in and Opt-out Services

AGEHR Area II distributes its primary communication services through the World Wide Web via the Internet. As a result, the organization has adopted a number of practices and processes to promote electronic communication whilst not inducing significant nor unwanted communication on its subscribers.

Opt-in and Opt-out services are offered to new or renewing members of the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers who (a) reside within the geograpic region comprised of New Jersey, New York,Pennsylvania and Ontario, and (b) provide an Email address to which electronic communications may be sent.

Services are also offered to other subscribers who wish to register their profile and Email addresses directly with Area II. This allows past members who may move to adjacent states, those who may have retired and moved some distance from Area II, and those who are interested in handbells but not registered as a member of AGEHR, or who may have an abiding interest in handbells and want to receive our communications. For more information, please click on the link at the bottom of this page to see a description of our Opt-in and Opt-out practices.
