NEWSLETTERS

On this website, you may subscribe to the Hippospit newsletter (which solely exists for informational and entertainment purposes). Our newsletters may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis on the success of “marketing campaigns,” which is slang for “email from us to all of you.” Really, we are not trying to market anything. We’re just trying to share funny stories. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email, as well as which links within the email you click. Hippospit will never share or give away your email.

You may opt-out of future email communications by following the unsubscribe links in our emails. You may also notify us at hippospitblog@gmail.com to be removed from our mailing list.
