L.O.W.F.I. may launch a mailing list for some or all of the L.O.W.F.I. Site. In the event L.O.W.F.I. does launch a mailing list, to sign up to receive regular emails from the L.O.W.F.I.

This information may be used in aggregate form only to assess general user interests in products and services. Users who subscribe to a mailing list will receive regular emails from the L.O.W.F.I.
