Chronicle Mid-week Update

Frequently Asked Questions

Q:        Will I get unsolicited email (spam) by signing up?

A:         Absolutely not.  We won’t share your email address with anyone, and you can unsubscribe at any time.  To help us learn what news is important to you, we might ask you to take part in an occasional Cape Cod Chronicle survey, but these will be rare—and completely optional. 

Q:        If I subscribe to the “breaking news” service, will you clutter my inbox with lots of stories that aren’t really breaking news?

A:         No way.  Unlike services offered by other local newspapers, our breaking news service is only for bona fide breaking news.  You might go several weeks without receiving any emails at all. 

Q:        What do the “mid-week update” emails contain?

A:         The email is brief and uncluttered, with a headline and one or two sentences per story.  It might be an update of an ongoing news story, or a preview of things to come in the next edition.   

Q:        Can I receive the emails on my cell phone?

A:         It depends on your phone and your service plan.  You can try entering your phone’s email address, but beware of extra messaging costs from your wireless provider.  Our emails are not available in text-only format, but the HTML pages are simple enough for most mobile web browsers. 

Q:        Why are you offering this service?

A:         It’s part of our New Year’s resolution to expand our electronic delivery of news.
