 Must agree to marketing consent??!!
Topic Originator: pars_andy  
Date:   Fri 10 May 10:30

Trying to renew my season ticket and it won’t let me proceed unless I agree to the club contacting me with marketing information. I’m sorry but that’s actually disgusting.

Edit: this must surely be an error. I’ll wait patiently until it’s corrected before renewing.

Just accept it and unsubscribe?

Sure it isn't meant and is potentially a flaw on the system.

C'mon Ye Pars!

Nah. I’ll just wait until they ‘fix’ their ‘flaw’

Disgusting indeed. I'm disgusted for you.

Disgusting.

Yes but not force you to agree to them contacting you.

Not a massive issue for me either, just curious.

I'd say this is a symptom of an under resourced club not fully understanding the implications or rules. Or not having time. Or a mistake.

These are all higher up the probability tree than "disgusting"

I don't think "disgusting" even starts to cover the unacceptability of this sorry, sorry state of affairs.

I'm sure our esteemed previous MP would gladly help pars_andy with his plight.

Phone the club and buy it over the phone.

Nope. I’m happy to take a stand against this unethical practice.

We seem to have teething problems every time we make changes to the ticketing situation.
Remember the problems with the new card readers at first.

Things will settle down, with hopefully few hiccups.

I'm genuinely unsure as to whether the OP is taking the p"ss or not. In the grand scheme of things it's no biggy! You have your email address as public on a public forum so anyone can spam you if they feel the need anyway....

It’s an old email address that points to a redundant account I never check. I’m absolutely not taking the p***.

Wind up or not, from my understanding of GDPR, it is illegal and could lead to a fine.

Customers need to actively opt in to get marketing materials full stop. Sending a confirmation email of a purchase is not the same thing, providing you don't use that email address for subsequent marketing... But you can't force marketing on people.

Not saying this would ever happen but the fines are super severe. 4% of global turnover.

I looked earlier and GDPR was covered immediately at the start prior to anything else

It might say GDPR on a Web page, but if you don't have the choice and physically opt in to marketing, then it won't be
