Other privacy issues

Mailing lists

From time to time RebuildingIraq will send you an email relating to our services. For some of these emails we use the Mailchimp service. View the Mailchimp privacy policy.

Mailchimp gathers statistics around these emails through the use of an 'open tracker' or 'web beacon'. This beacon is a single, invisible 1 pixel image that gets downloaded from a server when the email is opened.

The statistics collected are not shared with any third party. We use this information to ensure our emails are both relevant to your interests and also to ensure we do not e-mail you needlessly.

You can prevent the collection of these statistics by not allowing images to download when you open our emails. Information on how to do this can be found online or in your e-mail program instructions. You may choose to unsubscribe from our emails by using the link provided in the email.

If anything changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we'll post those changes here.

We have been working with some of our key customers to improve the service by using the latest software and technology, taking business intelligence in Iraq onto the next level.Mason Johnson, Rebuilding Iraq Project Information Manager
