Where we store your personal data
Our subscriber lists are stored on a secure MailChimp server. They don’t, under any circumstances, 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 it’s required by law. If someone on our list complains or contacts them, they may then contact that person. Only authorized employees have access to view Distribution Lists.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
Notice of Breach of Security
Nobody’s safe from hackers. If a security breach causes an unauthorized intrusion into the MailChimp system that materially affects us or people on our Distribution Lists, then they will notify us as soon as possible and later report the action they took in response. WE will pass this information on to you.
Safe Harbor Certification
MailChimp complies with the U.S.–E.U. and U.S.–Swiss Safe Harbor Framework, which is overseen by the U.S. Department of Commerce and covers the collection, use, and retention of personal data from European Union member countries and Switzerland. They certify that they follow the principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.
