@lucid: from dictionary.reverso.net:

sell on phrasal verb If you buy something and then sell it on, you sell it to someone else soon after buying it, usually in order to make a profit.

'Mr Farrier bought cars at auctions and sold them on.'

'The arms had been sold to a businessman; he sold them on to paramilitary groups.'Velojet2012-01-27 19:47:46

You're right it's a little clumsy though - probably better to phrase it "sell on your details" so the recognised phrase "sell on" appears intact. However, I bet they're a million other cases across the site and I doubt we'll ever fix them all :)
