Email Mailing List & Marketing Messages
Tigz Rice Limited will not automatically add you to an email newsletter. You may subscribe at your own discretion through an online automated double opt-in process. After filling in your details, a confirmation email will be sent to your email address from Mailchimp, which will be used to prove you, the owner of the e-mail address, have given authorisation to receive the newsletter. During registration, Mailchimp will also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and used by you at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of your e-mail address at a later date, and therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller, Tigz Rice Ltd.
The type and content of marketing messages you receive, and if it may contain third party content, is clearly outlined at the point of subscription.
You can unsubscribe at any time through an automated online service, or if not available, other means as detailed in the footer of sent marketing messages. Once you have unsubscribed, your personal data will be deleted.
Email marketing messages may contain tracking beacons / tracked clickable links or similar server technologies in order to track your activity within email marketing messages. Where used, such marketing messages may record a range of subscriber data relating to engagement, geographic, demographics and already stored subscriber data.

In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, in case your comment violates the rights of third parties, or contains illegal content.
