    • The contact information, such as first name, last name, gender, date of birth, photo, preferred language (for multilingual emails) helps better personalize deliveries.

    • The profile’s Time zone is used to send deliveries at the profile’s time zone. For more on this, refer to this section.

    • The No longer contact category is updated as soon as the profile unsubscribe to a channel.
