A Contact is opted-out by issuing the DELETE method on the contact resource:

 

https://api.constantcontact.com/ws/customers/{username}/contacts/{contact-id}

The call will return 204 No Content if it succeeds. This should be used if the contact has decided to unsubscribe from receiving all emails or has asked to stop sending all emails.  Opted-out contacts become members of the Do-Not-Mail special list and is removed from all other contact lists.
