Each electronic newsletter message that is sent provides the option to unsubscribe if the recipient desires.

Technology and Tracking

The Trust uses web software to track the number of visitors to the www.pipertrust.org pages that are most often visited and the domains from which people visit the site. The data is then analyzed internally for trends, which help provide more useful information to visitors. No personal information is collected during the tracking process.
