Please don't untick this box if you don't not want marketing spam
Remember receiving all that marketing crapola by email, despite swearing on the life of your first born that you never requested it in the first place? It was all in your mind, obviously. You must have dreamt your refusal of a weekly dose of irrelevant shit that you instantly mark as spam.
