  • Where you receive a marketing email, event invitation or other direct mailing from us, we may collect information about you in the following ways:

    • Opening emails: if you open an email either by downloading images in the email or by clicking in a link we log such activity on our database;
    • Viewing emails as web pages: if you click on the "view it as a web page" link in an email, a tracking code is included in the link so that the web page when viewed in your browser is personalised in the same way as the email;
    • Links to web pages within emails: if you click on any web link in an email, we include a tracking code in the link to the web page which we use to log such activity on our database;
    • Unsubscribing from emails: if you click to unsubscribe, we will automatically log this information on our database. If you unsubscribe from any email invitation or alert, we will continue to store your personal data on a "marketing suppression list" so as to record your preference; and / or
    • Event RSVP buttons: in our event invitations and confirmations we provide buttons to allow you to accept, decline, cancel and register (if you are not the original recipient of the email) for that event. Clicking on these buttons will pass a tracking code to us so we can record your choice in our database to help us manage the event.

    This enables us to record and manage how we contact you, and your preferences and bookings for our events. It also enables us (as set out in any such email) to review whether emails are opened or forwarded, and whether briefing links are clicked. This data helps us to ensure our mailing list remains up to date; it also provides us with some basic information about your interests and to personalise our communications with you.
