Your privacy is important to us. Personal information is never shared with third parties unless you give permission, conforming to General Data Protection Regulation.

Newsletters

You will only receive newsletters from us if you have signed-up to do so. Provided email addresses will not be shared with any other party, and users can unsubscribe whenever they wish. The only circumstance in which data will be shared with a third-party is on sign-up for free digital copies available through our partnership with Project AWARE. Free digital copies are distributed by Project AWARE, not Atlas Publishing Ltd, so email addresses (representative of ‘charity support’) are required. The sign-up process is clearly laid-out, with users aware they are signing-up to a third-party newsletter. Users can unsubscribe at any time.
Certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies. We recommend you read their privacy policies to understand how your personal information will be handled.
Equally, in instances where links take you to third party sites, we recommend reading the privacy
policies of those sites.
