Policy Statement for Subscribers to the RDI's Email Bulletins

As a subscriber you have elected to receive our email bulletins on the RDI’s research and the HIV-TRePS system.  In order to send you the bulletins, we simply ask for and store your email address. Only RDI employees have access to this and it is not shared with any third parties. 

When you receive emails you can unsubscribe through a link in the footer. You can also opt to unsubscribe from this service at any time by emailing us at If you do, we will remove your email address from our list.  You can also update or remove your email address at any point by emailing us.

If mailings elicit a ‘soft bounce back’ (emails that have a temporary delivery issue, e.g. the mailbox is full, recipient email server is offline, or email message is too large) five times the email is removed from our list.

If mailings elicit a ‘hard bounce back’ (email address does not exist, domain name does not exist, or recipient email server has blocked delivery) the email is removed from our list.

Our retention policy is to keep subscribers’ emails until such time as they unsubscribe or the emails address ceases to function, as above.
