      1. Q:  How do I subscribe to White House E-mail Updates?
        A:  Go to the subscription form and follow the instructions.
      2. Q:  How can I check to make sure the information I submitted is correct before I subscribe?
        A:  After clicking the submit button at the bottom of the subscription form, you will have a chance to view all the information you submitted. At the bottom of the page you may choose to subscribe, using the information displayed, or go back to edit your information before you subscribe.
      3. Q:  What is a double opt-in process?
        A:  To protect your privacy, the White House Web site uses a two step, "double opt-in," process. First, a subscriber must affirmatively choose to receive e-mail updates by filling out the subscription form. Second, a message is sent to the e-mail address submitted during the subscription process to verify the person at that address actually wants to receive e-mail updates from the White House.
    2. How Your Information is Used
      1. Q:  How will my e-mail address be used?
        A:  Your e-mail address will be used to send your e-mail updates and information regarding your subscription account.
      2. Q:  (If inside the US) How will my zip code be used?
        A:  Your zip code will be used to send occasional e-mails regarding Presidential initiatives affecting your community, as well as information on Administration visits to your area.
      3. Q:  (If outside the US) How will my region be used?
        A:  Because zip code is a required field, and people living outside the US may not have a zip code, region is given as an alternative to fulfill the zip code requirement. There are no plans to use this information for sending e-mail updates. If you live outside the US, but want information regarding a particular US location, enter a zip code in that area.
      4. Q:  How will the information about the format of my e-mail updates be used?
        A:  This information will be used to determine if you are sent a plain text e-mail of an HTML formatted e-mail.
      5. Q:  How will my first name and last name be used?
        A:  Your first and last name will be used for you to more easily identify your account. When we have the capability, we will also use your name to personalize your e-mail updates.
    3. Selecting Your E-mail Updates
