Tomorrow is deadline day, and companies around Europe have been sending out their updated privacy policies or ‘opt in’ emails for weeks. Some companies are apparently even offering discounts and prize draws to people who opt in.
There’s nothing like wading your way through tons of recruitment company mails from yesteryear, that website you bought a print from in 2012, or an owl sanctuary that you’ve never even visited.
As ever, people have turned to Twitter to vent their frustrations over their overflowing inboxes. Some people just don’t seem to get it. Why so many emails?
It’s actually a useful way to get rid of a load of spammy mail though, just ignore their requests to opt in. Then you’re off their mailing list for good.
