 From the PayPal terms of service:

When a member either sends a payment to, or requests a payment from, an
individual who is not a registered member of PayPal, we will retain the
information that the member submits to us, including, for example, the other
party's email address, Skype ID, phone number and/or name, for the benefit
of the member who is attempting to contact the non-member, so that the
member can see a complete record of his or her transactions, including
uncompleted transactions. Although this information is stored indefinitely,
we will not market to the non-member in any way at any time. Additionally,
these non-members have the same rights to access and correct information
about themselves (assuming that their detail(s) were correct enough to reach
them) as anyone else who uses PayPal.

PayPal say that they use the information you give them only to pass along to
the person receiving the payment so that any problems can be fixed later.
