For people who work in large media companies, we may list a possible email address for them in their individual page on media.info. Here's a random example.
Many people use media.info as a way of getting in touch with those in the media, and we do this as a courtesy to our visitors.
Email addresses listed in this way are based on their employer's personal email pattern. This e-mail pattern, like firstname.lastname@example.org, is publicly available information. It's from this pattern that we guess a possible email address for people in our media directory.
If you work for a large company, your email address is always guessable in this way.
For your privacy
You might request a non-standard email address from your IT department, to keep your address from being guessed in this way.
You can request your 'guessed' email address to be hidden on media.info by contacting us; though it won't stop others guessing it.
Things to know
We never publish e-mail addresses related to media.info registrations. That information is always held private.
We don't actually hold the 'guessed' email address in any database. It's produced by combining the personal email pattern from the employer, and the person's name.
E-mail addresses on this website are obfuscated to make it harder for spammers to use.
