Mail and Email Communications

You will not receive mail or email from us unless you have given consent or have engaged with us in a manner that includes/necessitates follow-up.

We maintain three mailing lists for ongoing communications. All individuals must give consent before being added to any of these mailing list.

  • For newsletter subscribers, we collect first name, last name and mailing address.

  • For our blog subscribers, we collect email addresses only.

  • For our general email subscribers, we collect first name, last name and email address, as this communication is for members of our community and is more personal in nature.

We maintain our email lists through MailChimp for professional management of our communications. By subscribing to any of our mailing lists, you acknowledge that the information you provide will be transferred to MailChimp for processing in accordance with their Privacy Policy. We use MailChimp because we believe they have exceptional due diligence in staying current with, providing education in, and holding us and themselves accountable to existing privacy laws.

Outside of our use of MailChimp, names and email addresses are kept strictly confidential within the organization, and are retained and used until subscribers withdraw their consent.

Subscribers can withdraw consent by (a) unsubscribing from the mailing list using the link at the bottom of all emails, or (b) requesting removal from the mailing list by contacting the organization directly (see contact information below).
