Who we share your data with

If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email. We work closely with third parties (including, for example, other companies in our parent company’s group, business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors) and they may receive information about you from them.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
