Action from members and NiC subscribers required.

The way that IIC sends emails has changed and it now includes an external provider: Campaign Monitor. Automated emails about membership renewals, congress submissions and emails from your account's contact forms will still be delivered by IIC's own server. Mass emails to the membership or to the subscribers of News in Conservation will be delivered by Campaign Monitor. This change was necessary to simplify the management of the thousands of emails sent from IIC each month.

Because a third party (Campaign Monitor) will require an email address for you and your name, we have updated our Privacy Policy (see Privacy, Cookies and Copyright) and we ask that you consent to the IIC passing this information to the third party. No other personal information will be shared in this case. You can give your consent in your account page. See the Email changes for further information.
