Can I subscribe someone else to your email updates?
If you have their permission, yes. Otherwise, without their consent, our email to that person could be considered SPAM (unsolicited email) according to Internet law. We cannot subscribe anyone without their specific permission and particulars.
EMAIL: If you are not receiving our email, check your SPAM and JUNK email folders. Possibly security software may block our email. To avoid this, add our email address to your contacts. If neither of these is a problem, write us a note so we can check the status of your account.
ACCESS: It is your responsibility to secure access to receive our email. Security settings in your email program, web browser, local network, or ISP (Internet Service Provider) may need to be changed to grant access.
SECURITY: Some security programs alert with a ‘False Positive”, in other words, it is not true that there is a threat. Tommy’s Window email is with GoDaddy Email Marketing through: gem.godaddy.com, which is a safe and secure service. This service only tracks clicks on the email links, which is harmless, for us to keep track of how many people are accessing our shows. Please allow this to function.

At the bottom of the email you receive from us, click on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link. A web page will open. Simply follow the instructions.
