Fix typo in register page re notifications

I see two issues on the registration page https://orcid.org/register , in the block about email frequency:

1) The first sentence has a typo in "... like changes to your ORCID record and new and events." and perhaps could anyway be a little clearer about what might generate a notification.

2) If most users leave the default weekly frequency setting then maybe you can ignore this second comment. However, when I see "Weekly summary" it sounds as if a user should expect weekly emails when, in practice, this is the maximum allowed with likely much less frequent notifications. Perhaps terms that downplay the likely frequency could help avoid scaring users. Maybe something along the lines of "At most once per week"?

    Thanks again for your suggestions to improve the ORCID Registry.

    We’ve now revised the language about notifications on the registration form as follows:

    > The ORCID registry provides notifications about things of interest, like updates to your ORCID record or being made a trusted individual, when they occur (learn more about notifications: https://support.orcid.org/knowledgebase/articles/665437). How often would you like these notifications delivered to you via email?

    Let us know if you have any additional suggestions on improving the registration form or other sections of the Registry.

    Warm regards,
    ORCID Community Team
