They resent with a working link.

Violation of the GDPR is so Rock'nRoll!

I renamed this thread to be about the newsletter, and discussion about the new music on Sat. can go in the World of Underworld thread.

They'd tried to tie their mandatory Opt-In email with a reason for you to Opt-In. Everyone is/was doing it this week.

All these mails with a request to confirm opt-in are totally unnecessary... A subscriber already gave permission, and is able to unsubscribe.
A lot of firms are risking ending up with an empty mailing list :)

the downside for getting it wrong is astronomical. Something like $18mil (or 10% of annual rev) for first offense. (don't quote me on those but its crazy high.)

Yes, huge fines, but just for firms that keep on refusing compliance. Guess underworld HQ will be safe :)

About 10 mins after I posted that comment I got the new email with the link working on it! 😂
