Where the information is stored

The Discover Sake mailing list is operated by MailChimp, so to send you these updates your personal information (email address) will be collected and stored by MailChimp. By signing up receive this newsletter, you consent to this information being sent to MailChimp.

No personal information is collected or stored by this site. Using a dedicated mailing list operator offers greater security for your personal information than I can offer as a non-specialist.

How the information is used

Your personal information will only be used to send you the content that you asked to receive (updates on the Discover Sake project, including informational articles, event announcements and other news about sake).

Personal information will never be given away, shared, sold, or otherwise transferred or disclosed.

Frequency of emails from this list

Emails will be sent to this list approximately once every one or two weeks. They may be more frequent if there is an update or event of interest, or less frequently if I am unable to send an update because of travel or other commitments.
