eBulletin Signup

We use a third party service called Mailchimp to send our e-bulletins and manage our subscriber lists. They are one of the biggest emailing services in the world and have extremely stong security policies so we have done the best we possibly can to secure your data.

Any information you give to us for our e-bulleitins will only ever be used for the purposes of contacting you with information from Volunteer Centre Edinburgh. We use a double opt-in system so that after signing up you must click a "subscription confirmation" link in an email. Every e-bulletin has a link in it for you to unsubscribe/manage your subscriptions.

The only mandatory piece of information we require is your email address, you do not have to provide your name or any other details.

We will never pass your information on to any third parties.

Registering for an Event/Training Course

Any information you provide us when booking an event or training course will only ever be used for the administration of the event/course and the information will be stored securely on our internal IT systems. We may contact you with details about the event but nothing else. We will not add your contact details to our e-bulletin subscribers lists. If you'd like to subscribe for our e-bulletins please go to our e-bulletin signup form
