Generally, independent contractors may not opt-out of these communications, though they can deactivate their accounts. These communications are not promotional in nature.

Tecademics communicates with independent contractors and registered customers via email, regular mail and telephone on a regular basis to provide requested services and in regards to issues relating to their Tecademics business.
