At Life Illustrated we are committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our visitors to our web site.

As part of the registration process via our sign up forms for our e-newsletters and general updates, we collect personal information, so we can share with our subscribers offers.

We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.

We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter. You can unsubscribe to our mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of our emails.
