How will Mapineq use the information collected and when will Mapineq contact me?

Mapineq will use your personal information to:

– Periodically send you news updates, event invitations, publications announcements or other information you may find interesting;

– Check that our records are correct.

We do look to see how many people are opening our emails but do not use this data to profile you individually.

Who Mapineq share your data with?

Mapineq does not share your personal data with anyone other than our newsletter service provider Emaileri. We use the Finnish company Emaileri to collect and store this data.

We use a third-party provider, Emaileri, to deliver our newsletter. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. Emaileri provides more information on their services on their website.

How long will Mapineq retain my personal data?

If you leave your data we will store your data for the length of the project (2022-2025) and up to 5 more years.

However, if you delete your account or request to be removed from the mailing list, your profile is tagged as inactive and, while people cannot use the personal information, it stays on the system so that we know not to send you a newsletter again.
