WEEKLY RAISING LIFELONG LEARNERS NEWSLETTER

If you decide to join the Raising Lifelong Learners newsletter via any of the sign-up forms located throughout this website, then your email address are required. We require your email address in order to send you the emails. At the bottom of every email I send, you will find a link to unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe from the RLL newsletter at any time.

I currently use ConvertKit as my email service provider (you can read their privacy policy here). Your data is collected and then passed to them. Tags are used within ConvertKit to track your actions and page visits so that future emails can be better tailored to meet your needs.

Currently, I send a minimum of two emails per week. However, I will occasionally email you about products and other promotions that may be relevant to your interests.

Free printables, along with conference and convention handouts are sent directly to your email with a download link via a third party application called Leadpages (you can read their privacy policy here). Your email and name are never sold or given away to a third party. All emails you receive are CAN-SPAM compliant. At the bottom of every email, you will find information on how to contact the sender, as well as information on how to unsubscribe.
