Our Lists
ModelSafety.Net has one master email list, as described below.
We use Mail Chimp to manage this list and send emails.

There are 2 ways to sign up for email communications from ModelSafety.Net: 1- Online 2- In person

1) ONLINE: Website, Facebook and Email Sign Ups
• Users are added to this list via a Double Opt-In process from the form found on the website and through the MailChimp application on Facebook. Also, users who make a donation online to ModelSafety.Net are invited to sign up for the email newsletter in a thank-you email, via MailChimp’s double opt-in process.
• These users typically receive 2-5 emails per year including periodic newsletters, and information about events (such as the Model Safety Workshops).

2) IN PERSON:
• Users are added after they sign up on paper at events such as the Model Safety Workshops.
• Entering these names and emails in MailChimp triggers a double opt-in process whereby subscribers are asked to confirm their email address.
• These users typically receive 2-5 emails per year including periodic newsletters, and information about events (such as the Model Safety Workshops).
