Data Processing Times

We process huge volumes of invaluable data which is submitted by you, our contributors. Whilst we try to ensure that we process submissions as soon as possible, we also apply levels of prioritization against different data to ensure that we get the highest profile data types for the most viewed pages to the site as quickly as possible to ensure the best possible user experience.
