- Additionally, if you are a list subscriber to a third party list that is hosted by Dundee Internet when you open an email announcement you receive through our server, we may record that event and/or any URLs when you click on or within the message received.

This listing will also include a link to your company’s homepage, if applicable. You can request to not be included in such listings by contacting us.
