The SCA has not provided email addresses published in the directories to any community groups for the purpose of enabling such groups to initiate email messages. If you are in receipt of any unwanted emails from such groups, you may remove your email address from their distribution lists by choosing the unsubscribe link in the group's email. If you continue to receive unwanted emails after unsubscribing, or if the unwanted emails do not contain an unsubscribe link, you may file a complaint at For further information on filing a complaint, see
