Tracking technologies that our marketing emails use

We send emails using a number of different services. Each service uses tracking technologies. We use this information primarily to understand what subjects are interesting to our readers, by monitoring whether our emails are opened and what links are clicked on by our readers. We then use this information to improve the emails that we send to you and the services that we provide.

If you do not wish to allow us to use these technologies, the best way to do this is to not enable images when you view our emails. In other words, only view the plain-text of the email.

In addition, each marketing email that we send to you will contain a link to details of the tracking technologies used for that specific email. If you click on the link you will be taken to the latest information and tracking-preference tools made available by the relevant email service.

If you do not allow us to use tracking technologies, this will stop us being able to take your preferences, as expressed by your email viewing behaviour, to help us improve the emails that we send to you over time. We will not be able to factor-in your email content preferences when creating further emails. We will also not be able to factor-in your preferences when considering what improvements to make to our services.

If you have any questions please contact us.
