One of the ways we love to get in touch with our readers and supporters is through our monthly e-newsletters, where we send one e-newsletter within the month (for special campaigns it may be two or three newsletters) keeping them up-to-date on our exciting programmes, workshops, website content and opportunities from our friends. We collect email addresses through our e-newsletter sign up form, our events hosted on Eventbrite, our crowdfunder on SOAS Hubbub network, our workshops and evaluation forms (with consent given).
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. Our subscribers can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
We hope this policy clearly lays out what we do with data (names and email addresses) from our readers and supporters online. Remember, if email is not our readers’ or supporters’ thing, Afrikult. is also on social media and happy to connect that way too. If anything is unclear, please drop a line to Marcelle Akita on firstname.lastname@example.org.
