We offer the following free services, which require some type of voluntary submission of personal information by users:
Users of the site's blogging platform must register separately for these services (free of charge) in order to post blogs, although they needn't register to visit the site. During registration the user is required to choose a username, create a password, add an email address, agree to the Terms of Service, and choose whether they want a blogging website or just a user account.
We may offer a free electronic newsletter to users in the near future. Arrow Financial gathers the email addresses of users who voluntarily open an account (i.e. a blog or username). Users may remove themselves from this mailing list by following the link provided in every newsletter that points users to the subscription management page. Users can also subscribe to the newsletters with any customer service representative or by emailing Arrow Financial at firstname.lastname@example.org
