Good to know about our email service

The system will only send out an e-mail if there is news to report, and this will be done daily so that you won't receive a bunch of e-mails from us. During periods of high activity it can be the case that you'll receive an e-mail from us every day, in quiet times it could take more than a week, it all depends on our beloved star the Sun. If you ever want to unsubscribe, use the link in the e-mail and we'll stop sending you these updates. You can always reactivate them in a later time.
