Mailing Lists
The Food Forest Project would like to send you up to date news and information as part of our e-newsletter. To do this, we will need some personal information from you – your email address and your name.

We will never give, sell, trade or rent any of your data to or with other organisations or businesses.

Using Mailchimp’s reports on the email, we gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.

The Food Forest Project will not use the data you give us to subscribe to my monthly newsletter in any other way. It will not be saved on any other system aside from the Mailchimp list you signed up for, and we will not transfer it to any other lists unless you allow us to do so.

The Food Forest Project may occasionally email you to ask you if you are happy remaining on our mailing list – but we will always refer to our privacy notice to remind you of your rights, and if you do not want to continue receiving information from us, we will remove you from that mailing list.

You have the option to unsubscribe at any time to our e-newsletter, either by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails, by emailing or by going into your Mailchimp account and unsubscribing. 

Once you have chosen to unsubscribe from our emails, we will delete all data we have on you and it will be removed from our system permanently.
