Welcome to Go Newsletter Issue #37. It's hard to believe it's been five years since Go's public release, and we have lots of related links in this issue.

As Go Newsletter's subscriber base has grown to unexpected proportions, I thought it would be good to add a Privacy Policy and Terms to our website. This makes a formal pledge to protect your data (additionally, we're already registered under the Data Protection Act in the UK), and sets out some standard conditions under which we operate. Please do read these, and feel free to reply to this email if you have any questions.
