Is an email part of the requirement for GDPR?
@demortes iirc there was something about it, like you need to use all your channels available to inform your customers about the change

Haxk20435585yI love it
@demortes If you want to use user data for anything, the users have to agree. Full opt-in. It's not like you can first gather the email address for setting up a user account and then use it for a newsletter.
@demortes no, and 90 percent of the emails are opt out which is already not GDPR compliant.
What I notice is that the "small" companies perform better at these things. Paizo unsubscribed me from every of their emails, subscribed back to one.
Riot.im did a nice opt-in thing. I like their approach.
Fradow9465yThere are 2 things you are supposed to do:
Fradow9465yLong story short: this looks as an opt-out, they can't prove consent on your part, therefore NO, they do not fully comply with GDPR.
Also, if I understand GDPR correctly, you are supposed to inform your users, not tell them "request it to us" (at least in the spirit of the law). So that's double failure.
@Fradow you are completely right.
