No, not spam related this time, but I have emailed A&A customers that have lines from us asking them to confirm they are happy for us to email them.
I have not gone insane, honest. OFCOM have made some rules, and to comply with them, we have to have explicit consent to email notices to customers. This is in spite of the fact we make it clear in our terms and customers are well aware that we email invoices, DD notices, and pretty much everything else.
The only mistake I made is that I should have PGP signed the email! Sorry about that.
I have tried to make it as simple as possible - one link from the email and a confirm button. I'd appreciate it if people could follow it and confirm.
We'll email people again if they don't confirm - sorry - but if you don't like it please do complain to OFCOM for being so "creative" with these new rules.
Update: I have resent the email to people that have not yet confirmed, PGP signed. Thank you for the comments on this. So far we have two thirds confirmed, thank you.
