At this stage, your email will only be used for emailing the voucher to you and is not for any marketing purposes and therefore not shared with anyone at this stage. To be able to access the vouchers you will need to sign up to to the website. You will only need to enter your email address and name. The information will only be held on the website and be used to enable vouchers to be emailed to yourself. We will not use the information for any other purposes but to help with administering the voucher system.

Via ‘signing up’ to the Hampshire’s Top Attractions newsletter:
If you would like to sign up to the HTA newsletter, you will be asked for your contact name, email address and first part of your postcode for geographic data. At this stage in sign up, your data will be automatically entered into a list on Mailchimp (our newsletter provider). You can read their privacy policy here. Once your data is held with Mailchimp, this is only then ever shared/seen by The Marketing Collective so that they can process your request. You can read their privacy policy here.
