We have decided to deactive the former E-Newsletter subscription system and use the forum software to send any notices or updates to AlpineZone members. You can easily set whether you would like to receive such Emails in your User CP. Go to your User CP, click Edit Options. Under "Messaging & Notification", check "Receive Email from Administrators" in the "Receive Email" section. Historically, I've only sent one or two E-newsletter mailings per month at the most. Typically, they were announcements of various contests or promotions we have held. The Privacy Policy has been updated accordingly.
