To enable us to contact you, MailChimp collects personal information from you, including your email address. MailChimp uses cookies and other methods to collect information about your access of electronic newsletters that we send you, what browser you use, your operating system and similar information. ​MailChimp collects this information so that we can see how our electronic newsletters are reaching our participants. MailChimp may pass this information to third parties to process for information for this purpose or when required to do so by law.
