Information we collect

You can submit a press release to the press team through the Huddled News website. You will have the chance to sign up to the newsletter through this form by clicking that you would like to be included in the mailing list. If you choose not be included in our newsletter mailing list, we will not add you to our list.

If you decide to sign up to our newsletter the information you have submitted, such as your email address and name, will only be used to send you a personalised email containing our newsletter.

Similarly, you can directly sign up to our newsletter mailing list via another form on the website. When you sign up, we will collect the necessary information that will allow us to send you the newsletter. Along with this we will collect information such as the IP address and time you signed up. This information is only stored so we can show you gave us consent to send you the newsletter.

To distribute the newsletter, we use third party email software such as MailChimp. Email information is stored on their system in order to allow us to send out the newsletter, which are held to high industry standards. We also use their software to check the performance of our emails for statistics such as open and click rates.

There are only a select group of staff that have access to the mailing list and email marketing tools, which are both password protected. Other than the email tools, we don’t share your data with any other third parties.

At any time, you can request access to the data we hold about you and request any of your data to be deleted. You can do this by contacting our Privacy Policy Officer (Martin Vernon) at martin.vernon@huddled.media.
