Privacy Notice – RCTN’s E-bulletin

Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland will use the information you share with us to send you the e-bulletin(s) you want to receive.

We may occasionally send you emails about other Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland activities, services and events to pursue our legitimate organisational activities but we won’t share your personal information or use your data for automatic profiling.

We use a third party provider, Mailchimp, to send our e-bulletins and your personal data will be stored on our Mailchimp system until you tell us you no longer want to receive our e-bulletins.  We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies.
