    So you don't want to resubscribe to my newletter then? :'(

    I know data protection is important but my email inbox is full of this rubbish.

    Mine too but I have no idea what to do with them.

    Not one of them says “click here” if you agree to whatever it is you are supposed to agree to. I’m just left staring at all these lines and lines of text.

    So I have been deleting them. No idea what the end result will be. Don’t much care either way.

    There are masses of emails today (the day before the deadline!) imploring me to be kind to them and tick yes, yes, yes.  And I am thinking oh goody, no, no, no - I might actually be able to get rid of all the junk email at last. I'm not holding my breath though.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    If you get the pop up box on this site you have to click on ‘more actions’ (I think that’s what it says) . If you scroll down you will see that all :third party ‘ are ticked as active, you need to click on them so it says Inactive. Unless you want all third party world and his wives extracting your info. 
    It’s  all about advertising.  I don’t need it.

    I've been getting emails from companies etc. I had forgotten about!  Can't remember hearing from them for a long time, but there is something satisfying about saying "No thanks" :D  Trouble is, some you have to "click on" to stay in touch, and others you don't.

    I deactivated all of them, as Lyn did above..

    I've kept some and deleted the rest.  It's a good chance for a clear out.

    I've stopped every single thing I possibly can, from every single company.
     If I later find out I'm missing something, I can always go back to them ask to be made " active " again. 
    To be fair, I'd rather be given the option, than NOT given the option, which is basically what's been the case to date unless you trawl through endless terms and conditions.
