Data Privacy Policy

This statement details ChinTell’s collection and use of personal data in the context of the Week in China email newsletter and companion website and apps.

ChinTell is a publishing company based in Hong Kong. We can be contacted through the Contact Us form on our website.

Typically the information that we are collecting is name, country of residence and email address. Most subscribers are also asked to indicate their profession, company name and job title.

We collect this basic biographical information in order for a third party provider to send you a weekly issue of Week in China, and for you to access the Week in China website.

All subscriber data is stored in a discrete, secure server behind a firewall and no subscriber information is shared with third parties, other than on occasion with HSBC.

If you wish to discontinue your subscription, you can do so through the links at the bottom of the weekly email that we send out or use the Contact Us box on our website to request that your subscription is discontinued.

If you want to delete your information fully from our records, you can request that we do so via the Contact Us box on our website.

If you receive the html-formatted version of the newsletter, your opening of the newsletter email is notified to us and saved. Your clicks on links in the newsletter are also saved. We use analytics cookies that anonymously remember your computer or mobile device when you visit our site. They track browsing patterns and help us to build up a profile of how our readers use the website. There are also service cookies that help us to make our website work efficiently in remembering your registration and login details. There are a small number of third party advertising and analytics cookies, which are placed by or on behalf of advertisers on our site. These cookies may be placed within the advertisement or elsewhere on our site. They are anonymous and they cannot identify individuals. They are used for statistical analysis by allowing advertisers to count how many people have seen their advertisement or have seen it more than once.

Occasionally, an issue of the newsletter or a page on the website may carry a survey. Participation in the survey is voluntary. Individual responses are saved and used to prevent multiple voting by any individual.
