means we will only conduct the activity with your affirmative consent.
- We use an opt-out standard
for email or for other communications, such as postal mail. Opt-out means
we may contact you, but will stop upon your request (as described below).
note that these standards may not apply to communications regarding our Health &
Wellness operations, such as prescription reminders. For more information see
