If you wish to receive periodic updates by email from the ICCT, you must provide your contact information via our sign-up page. This is a double opt-in process; after subscribing to our list, you will receive a confirmation email that you must also respond to in order to be added to the list. We use an outside vendor, MailChimp, to send email updates and store our mailing list. MailChimp collects information on undelivered emails (so that defunct addresses can be removed from the list), location, opens, and clicks. MailChimp may also transfer this personal data to certain sub-processors who perform critical services, such as abuse and fraud prevention and customer support. At any time you can unsubscribe from the list by clicking the link located at the bottom of every email newsletter.
