Like any other business, we mainly communicate by email. We use emails to exchange information, gather data and distribute material in order to carry out the business of Public Relations and Marketing for our clients. We have a strict permissions and approvals policy when creating case studies which requires us to contact third parties involved. We never use third party contact information supplied by our clients for our own marketing purposes.
By their very nature, business cards are mutually exchanged with the express purpose of keeping in touch.

We will only ever send you information that we believe will be relevant and of interest to you and will not bombard you with spam on a weekly or even a monthly basis. If you change your mind, you can opt-out from receiving our newsletter by unsubscribing.
