Mailing List Subscribers Privacy Policy

When you join ASEN or attend an ASEN event you provide us with certain bits of information about you. For the purposes of the mailing list, we keep your name and email only.

Purpose and legal basis

ASEN uses this information to send out our newsletter which includes calls for papers, events, activities and updates in the field of nationalism and ethnicity studies.

As you have attended an ASEN event or been a member in the past, we understand that you have an interest in receiving this mailing and this is our legal basis.


Your name and email are also kept on MailChimp for sending out our newsletter. ASEN has a data processing agreement with MailChimp and a two-step verification process to ensure your data is safe. ASEN does not share your data with any third-parties.


The ASEN Coordinator reviews the mailing list annually and removes those we believe are no longer interested in the newsletter. This includes those who have not opened a mailing in two years.
