It means that if you choose this option, you will not receive the complete Newsletter but only a Newsletter that covers the thematic categories of your choice.
What you need to do:
-If you want to keep the Newsletter in its actual format, you do not have to do anything.
-For those of you who want to receive the thematic Newsletter in future, you have the possibility to edit your account by clicking on the link ‘Change Your Subscription’ at the end of the newsletter. You will be then invited to choose the thematic categories you.  You will then receive a customised newsletter with all the stories relating to your interests
