Other technologies we use in our communications

We use third party email marketing tools as part of the delivery of electronic communications, such as publications, newsletters and firm announcements. These tools contain coding that determine the delivery of email communications and allow us to measure levels of interest so that we can adapt future communications according to trends in user behaviour.

We currently use a third party service provided by Campaign Monitor for managing email campaigns. Campaign Monitor uses ‘Createsend’ to monitor email opens, bounce backs, not opened and unsubscribe rates and the use of links in opened emails. All subscriber lists, campaign content and reports are treated as private and confidential.
