    Default Does IPC sell our data?

    My subscription to YM is a gift paid for by someone else. How come they, who have no sailing connections apart from this subscription, received advertising bumf from Moorings?

    and then sold on again after that

    Some time ago I asked this question and got a written reassurance from the Company Secretary that they don't. As I recollect, Marketing Manager Richard Shead also affirmed the same. So how reliable is that......

    then it is probably worth at least the paper it was written on

    More than likely, when subscribing, your 'someone else' ticked, or didn't tick, boxes allowing emails from IPC or partners. So probably perfectly valid.

    Research required. Someone needs to go through the subscription process on-line to verify that thought.
    Not me though. I couldn't give a stuff.

    Given your parlous state, methinks you're missing a trick...

    No research required. The boxes will be there, either online or paper format.

    Just subscribed. 6 month DD. All boxes unticked which was a pleasant surprise. Last time I did this IPC had automatically ticked all the "Send me Junk" boxes so may be they are learning.
