If you have provided data with a country of location from the Middle East & North Africa, then after the end of the “Ummah for Earth” campaign you will continue to receive updates about Greenpeace MENA’s campaigns by email. The exercise of your rights, including unsubscribing, is always possible at any time.

We may also share anonymised (or ‘hashed’) versions of your data with partners such as social media providers for the purposes of helping achieve our campaigning and fundraising aims, by delivering personalised content to existing supporters and identifying similar audiences.
