Good to know about our e-mail service

The system will only send out an e-mail if there is news to report. If we do not write a news item you will not recieve an email for that specific day. These e-mails will also come at most once a day so if we write multiple reports on one day, you will only get one e-mail notifying you of that day's news reports. During periods of high activity it can be the case that you'll receive an e-mail from us every day and during quiet times it could take more than a week. It all depends if there is something to write about! If you ever want to unsubscribe, use the link in the e-mail and we'll stop sending you these updates. You can always reactivate them at a later time.
