The frequency of newsletters sent during the year is a maximum of one per month, except during the month before the Festival, where one newsletter is sent per week, and one per day during the 10 days of the Festival.

The recorded data is transmitted to Rocket for storage. Input data that is stored is not transmitted to third parties. In addition, MailChimp offers different ways of analyzing how newsletters are opened and used, for example the number of users who have received an email, if emails have been rejected and if users unsubscribe from the list after receiving an email.
