GDPR emails FFS
Spamming me like Sir Spam of Spamalot.

Has WHO updated their data privacy ? Be interesting to know who has access to personal information. Hmmm

I am not sure it is such a NIGHTMARE, it is just the usual bollocks you get in this country when new legislation comes out. Everyone in business starts panicking and 'advisers' start scaremongering and rubbing their hands. Most of these people giving GDPR advice that I have spoken to havent actually read the bloody thing.

There is no reason at all for companies to be sending all this shite out over the last few days. In fact any that are sending emails have made a really poor decision which could rape their email databases.

I'm in marketing for a global brand. from a professional POV, GDPR is a nightmare.

but from a consumer POV, the legislation is so thoroughly written it is good for everyone.

So 2 days of emails are easy enough to put up with for a lifetime of "leave me the fuck alone"

Re: GDPR emails FFS
My understanding is that they just have to inform you of the policy changes, but some companies have taken the opportunity to purge their databases whilst spamming us all.

And, no, I don't reply either - in fact, my spam filter caught them after about the first 3, so all I do is empty my junk box whenever I feel like it.

I thought GDPR had gone down since BREXIT, why are they still barking on about it?

Brentford I think if WHO holds any personal information, name, email address etc then if it’s liable.

On some I received, they explicitly state that to continue emails, I must update permissions, but still receiving emails from them

GDPR has helped me get rid of a mountain of shit emails that I often forget to unsubscribe from.

Re: GDPR emails FFS
It's only come into force today.

Not sure if there are any exemptions for e-mails asking for permission to send their usual stuff.

WHO doesn't need to as individuals can not be obtained dentified from the data they hold I believe.
However the Muppets in my department where I work have missed the deadline despite me reminding them and us all having to re - do the data protection course and having 3 months to sort it.
I work for a large local college too, not some small or private business.

Re: GDPR emails FFS
Some have gone as far as asking you to opt in, which is good. But I haven’t read them all.

Does it mean we can get black anons back as well?

Re: GDPR emails FFS
I didn't update any permissions on most of them and still receiving emails

Re: GDPR emails FFS
Great opportunity to stop getting shit from companies you regret contacting in the first place, without actually doing anything.

At least, I presume that's what's going to happen if you don't update their permissions.
