Opt-out Settings

Comprehensive Opt out management


Opt-Out refers to the action of unsubscribing or withdrawing from a marketing or promotional campaign, service, or mailing list. The opt-out option gives individuals the ability to remove themselves from receiving future communications. This allows individuals to control the amount and type of marketing and promotional messages they receive from your business

Opt-out mechanisms can include options such as clicking an unsubscribe link in an email or replying with a specific code to a WhatsApp message. The goal of opt-out mechanisms is to allow individuals to have control over their data and the marketing messages they receive and to ensure that companies respect individual preferences.
