The ODDIZZI administrator and staff users at your organisation will be retained on our customer relationship management system and email system, as well as all staff users, to make it easy to re-activate your account should you change your mind and to continue receiving product newsletters and marketing updates. They will have the option to unsubscribe at any time.
