PR Place is our online community for our students, alumni and practitioners. If you elect to join when you enrol on a course we will send you regular email updates about content that we have added to the site. These updates may also contain information about PR Academy courses.
PR Place is free. We set it up to build a community and share thoughtful pieces on PR and communication.
You can also join via PRPlace.com – becoming a member in this way allows you to download resources as well as receive updates. When you do, we collect your name and email address.
We use Mailchimp to manage our membership and distribution lists for PRPlace.com – you can opt out at any time. If you opt out, we keep a record of that in Mailchimp to ensure we don’t contact you in future. (However, please note that if you are a current or recent past student of PR Academy, we may still message you via the online learning centre or email in connection with your studies.)
If you comment on a story we use Disqus for this. Make sure you are happy with their terms and conditions before you use it: https://help.disqus.com/terms-and-policies/disqus-privacy-policy
