Bethinking Email

If you sign up to the Bethinking email, we will pass your name and email address to a service called Mailchimp. Mailchimp is an email address management and message sending service provided by Mailchimp Inc.

The email we send to you through Mailchimp includes technology that allows them to collect information such as when you open the email, whether you click a link within it, your IP address and other similar details. This information is used to compile reports on the effectiveness of our emails which we may review and act on.

Mailchimp promises to store your details securely and not to share your details with any other party except where required by law. You might want to read their privacy policy on the Mailchimp website.

Email Forms

If you complete the ‘contact us’ form or ‘send comments’ form, an email will be generated and sent to us. This contains your name, email address and message, as captured by the form. We will use the details to respond appropriately. We also capture and send some technical details to help us identify and correct any problems with the website.

If you complete the ‘Send to a Friend’ form, an email will be generated and sent to your friend, and a copy sent to us. This contains your name and email address, as captured by the form.

In both cases, the data collected to generate the email is also logged in our website database for the purposes of monitoring, backup and prevention of misuse. We also use a session cookie to keep a count of the number of emails sent to prevent misuse – see the ‘cookies’ section below.
