If you signup to receive News or Employment emails, MailChimp collects some data from you:
Member email campaigns
We automatically place single pixel gifs, also known as web beacons, in every email sent by our Members. These are tiny graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us and our Members to recognize when their Contacts have opened an email or clicked certain links. These technologies record each Contact’s email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports for our Members about how an email campaign performed and what actions Contacts took.
