What is the Ciao E-Mail Alert Service?
The Ciao E-Mail Alert Service enables you to keep in touch with what's happening on
Ciao even when you are not on the site. You can subscribe to have e-mails sent to you
when particular events occur, e.g. when somebody posts a comment about a review you
have written, or when a review is submitted in a category of interest to you.
You can also determine the frequency at which these e-mails are sent.
