On the Bergen Assembly website you have the possibility of subscribing to our newsletter as well as to our press mailing list. Both mailings are sent via the service Mailchimp.
With our mailings we provide information at regular intervals about the program and the activities of the Bergen Assembly. To be able to receive these mailings you need a valid e-mail address. The e-mail address given by you will be checked to ensure that you are indeed the owner of the given e-mail address, or that its owner has authorized receipt of the mailings. To this end, after sending your newsletter subscription enquiry, you will receive an e-mail at the given address with a request for confirmation. You can cancel the subscription to the newsletter and to the press releases at any time.
In the subscription process you can select the mailing list you would like to be added to (Press or Newsletter) and provide us with additional info such as your preferred language or your name. This information helps us to know what information is relevant to send you and what is not, but it is not necessary to give to Bergen Assembly.
Information from subscribing to newsletters will be stored in Mailchimp. Here we can see if you have opened our newsletter and if you have clicked any links. This is useful information for us, so we can see what kind of content you find interesting
Your information will not be used to other purposes than initially intended – to deliver newsletters. Non-personal information such as statistics about subscribers’ language preference and presence in Bergen may be used for our yearly reports to funding bodies. This information cannot be traced back to you.
YOUR RIGHT TO ACCESS, CORRECT AND DELETE INFORMATION
If we are treating personal information about you, you have the right to access your information. The IP-addresses we collect are not connected to a person, and therefore we do not know who this is. The access of personal information by Bergen Assembly is only regarding subscription to our newsletters.
