5) MARKETING

When you sign up to receive our newsletters, we collect personal information about you.

We do not sell or trade mailing lists with other organisations and businesses for commercial purposes. We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletters. And in order to monitor and improve our communications to you, we gather statistics around email openings and clicks using industry standard technologies.

From time to time, we will also send out surveys using a third-party provider called Typeform. The data collected in Typeform is collected to help run promotions, surveys or campaigns. For more information, please see MailChimp's privacy notices. You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
