Sky WiFi will share your account information such as your name, age, gender, postal address, mobile phone number, email address, your device(s) MAC address (which is a unique identifier linked to your device) and usage information with a hotspot venue partner, when you have accepted the partner’s Terms & Conditions at one of their venues. The partner will only be able to market to you if you have consented to marketing when you first visited their venue, or you have opted into a partner’s marketing via the Preference Centre (see how to access below).
You can see how the venue partner uses your account information by reading their Privacy Notice, which you can see for partners whose venues you have visited by logging into Your Account Settings and selecting Sky WiFi Preference Centre. You can also change your marketing options in the Preference Centre.
Sky WiFi may also share your profile information (such as age, gender, postal code, venue location) with advertising services in order to personalise the adverts that you see, if you have consented to this during registration or via the Preference Centre.
You can see more information about how Sky WiFi uses your account information in our WiFi Privacy Notice.

Performing a factory reset of your device will not reset the MAC address on your device, so to ensure that subsequent users of a device which you no longer own cannot access the Sky WiFi service via that device and generate data records which will be linked to your account, you should remove the device from the list of devices that are linked to your account.
For more information on how to do this, open the FAQ above titled How do I add or remove devices?
