Did you know that a permanent Post Office Change Of Address forwarding request can make your address available to marketing firms that have your name and previous address? When this occurs, changing a mailing address keeps the junk mail coming. This all occurs through the National Change of Address List (NCOA). Through this list, the Postal Service makes your new address to any mailer in possession of your name and old address. The goal of the list is to prevent frequent mailers from sending letters to the wrong address, but this list is a root cause of your unwanted advertising mail.
Consumers should directly update their businesses, organizations, catalogues and personal contacts through Updater. Also, in case you forgot to update a contact or affiliation, Updater knows how to get you 12 months of USPS forwarding without your new address ending up on the NCOA list. This streamlined process allows for the full ‘permanent’ 12 months of forwarding but prevents data-brokers and list managers from gaining access to your new information. When you indicate that you want to “prevent unauthorized mailers from accessing my new address” Updater will keep your address private and off of the list.
Updater will also suppress your name and address from marketing and profiling lists so that your information is no longer bought and sold behind your back. Updater will then monitor these lists for 3 years to ensure your information stays off.
