We do ask for certain information from you during the signup process, but don’t worry, your data does not go anywhere and is not passed on to any third parties or otherwise. We use this data to learn about the behaviours on how you guys interact and engage with LOTI content. From time to time we may also send you an email about something we think you will like based on the interaction you have shown from certain posts, this may be in partnership with a brand. It will all be relevant.
WE DON’T SHARE YOUR DATA
We physically can’t. We have nowhere to store it. We don’t even have a server database to sort it on. So if Justin Bieber asked nicely to see your data, we would have nothing to show him.

So what does this mean? Does it mean we are lining our pockets with gold, taking money from huge companies and posting content we don’t care about? It’s a trick right? That couldn’t be further from the truth. Partner Content is us working with brands we like, on campaigns we think are exciting and interesting to both us and our readers. We get paid for these campaigns, as it keeps us doing what we are doing and driving our own business forward. Every single word is written by us; we do not repost any press releases from brands or businesses and all our views are our own. We are paid because we provide a service to that brand or business and our time is spent writing, researching, experiencing, learning, creating, promoting and delivering. This is all done with good intentions to showcase some of the exciting opportunities we are presented with that we feel are interesting to you. Some of these might be aligned with big brands and businesses, but that is no bad thing – brands have money to spend on creating exciting experiences we can all enjoy (often for free). Partner Content is not bad content, it’s smart content. Thanks for reading.
