  • for assessment and analysis to enable us to review, develop and improve the services we offer.

We do not sell, trade, rent or otherwise share your information with any other party, unless required to do so for law enforcement purposes.

MailChimp Newsletters

MailChimp provide an online platform that we use to create, send, and manage email newsletters. The service uses distribution lists containing the names and email addresses of our subscribers i.e. people who have registered to receive our newsletter.

Our distribution lists are stored on a secure MailChimp server.  MailChimp’s own privacy policy and terms of use stipulate that they will never sell our lists, contact people on our lists, market to people on our lists, steal our lists, or share our lists with any other party, unless required to do so by law.

All of our newsletters include an unsubscribe link which will automatically remove a subscriber’s details from our distribution list.

Web Beacons

When we send emails to our newsletter subscribers, we’ll sometimes track who opened the emails and who clicked the links.  To do this, we include single pixel gifs, also called web beacons, in emails we send.  Web beacons allow MailChimp to collect information about when you open the email, your IP address, your browser or email client type, and other similar details. We are able to use that data in MailChimp to run reports to see who has or hasn’t opened our emails or clicked links. We do that to measure our Email Campaigns’ performance and to improve our features and relevance for our subscribers.
