inline sign up form has word "null" instead of "marketing emails" in text

I created an inline sign up form that works great on my web site, and everything looks fine when I edit it on the Constant Contact web site.

 

However, when it is on my web site, the text that says

 

"By submitting this form, you are consenting to receive marketing emails from"

 

instead reads

 

"By submitting this form, you are consenting to receive null from".

 

Does anyone know how to fix this?  Thanks in advance.

Hi @Bermuda_Business_Development_Agency 

 

Thanks for sharing these steps with our users here in the Community! Changing the Fine Print Text "marketing emails" to just "emails" in your Organization Information settings like this and deactivating/reactivating the inline form is the workaround we are currently recommending.

We hope other users find this information helpful as well.

I apologize you too are having this experience. This change in our inline sign-up forms is not something that has yet been resolved. It is however something our Support is continuing to troubleshoot. Though we do not have a time estimate of when it will be resolved, you have been added to our queue to be notified when it is. Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist with in the meantime.

I am having the same problem. I note that in "Manage My Settings" under "Organization Information" there is a field "Fine Print Text" which is the variable null is pointing to. The default says "marketing emails." I changed it to "informational emails" but there was no effect. Seems like this should be a quick fix.
