Users will have the option of not providing the information, in which case they may still be able to access other portions of this website or to receive other information such as newsletters and magazines; however, if users choose not to provide requested information, they may be able to access only specific programs or services. In some areas of our websites, we also may enable users to ‘opt-out’ of certain uses of information or to elect not to receive future communications or services.
