If you subscribe to a BikeReady update alert or newsletter we will collect your name and email address. Once subscribed, your details will be added to a mailing list that is used to distribute e-newsletters.

Waka Kotahi sometimes uses Campaign Monitor, a dedicated e-newsletter communication tool, to easily manage and distribute project news.

Waka Kotahi monitors the effectiveness of these newsletters using analytical tools offered by Campaign Monitor that collect the following information:

  • Unique opens – the number and email addresses of subscribers that have opened the email
  • Email client usage – which email account (e.g. Gmail, Outlook, Hotmail) was used to open the email
  • Regions – where this email has been opened
  • Bounced – the number of emails that weren’t successful due to an inactive address, DNS failure, or if the recipient’s mailbox was full
  • Not opened – the number and email addresses of subscribers that didn’t open the email
  • Shares – the number of times the newsletter has been shared via email, Facebook or Twitter by subscriber
  • Most popular links – the most clicks on any links directing to other websites or information not contained in the email.

There is no ability to collect information beyond this, or to track the recipient outside of a specific e-newsletter. Once the recipient has closed the newsletter, no further information can be collected. You have the right to request access to and correction of any personal information that we hold about you.  If you would like to exercise that right or if you have any concerns about personal information that we hold, please write to:
