MNHQ - when posters give real names and addresses to enter competitions do you ever pass or sell them on to other companies?

Right. Do you know if there is anywhere I can read that it says they will do this?

really nojustification? So someone was sent a list of names with user names next to them!

That had something to do with a contest those posters had entered, though. I don't know that they give or sell our details except in cases of contests.

nojustificationneeded is correct, this happened about about a month ago, here's the thread www.mumsnet.com/Talk/site_stuff/1239292-Naturespath-comp.

Hopefully MNHQ have slapped the appropriate wrists.
