Journal & Newsletter Sign Up
As part of the registration process for our journal and e-newsletter, we collect personal information. We use that information for a couple of reasons: to tell you when our journal is available and how to receive it; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are right and to check every now and then that you're happy and satisfied. We do not rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use a third party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. For more information, please see MailChimp's privacy notice.
