How do I opt-out of communication from National Geographic and other third party communications?

Although we rely on email and direct-mail messages to promote our publications and other products, we certainly do not wish to send mail to those who don’t want it.  
To opt-out of National Geographic email communication, please click on "Unsubscribe" at the bottom of any email you receive from National Geographic. 
To opt-out of National Geographic mail communication and/or other third party communications, you can modify your preferences at anytime by visiting us online at or contact us using one of the below methods:
  • By telephone Toll-Free—U.S. and Canada only: 1-800-647-5463 or Outside the U.S. and Canada: 1-515-237-3674
  • Or send us a letter with your request to:
National Geographic
Attn: Marketing Services - Privacy
1145 17th Street NW
Washington, DC 20036-4688

Because our mailings are often planned months in advanced, it might take several weeks for all mail to stop. We hope you will understand and do appreciate your patience.
