Tailoring your communications

We will ask you up-front if and how you’d like to receive marketing communications from us. If you want to change your marketing communications preferences, you can contact us via email at  Every marketing email we send includes a link for you to unsubscribe at any time.

We may also use the information you have provided and information we collect about your use of our Services to tailor communications we send to you. We do this to ensure you always get a great service fully tailored to your preferences, but if you would prefer we do not use these kinds of profiling techniques you can opt-out by contacting us via email at If you opt-out, you may find your communications from us become less relevant to your interests.
