So when some of you said "it's great that GDPR forces people to ask me about another opt-in for storing data or sending newsletters", under GDPR itself, emailing that question is illegal *especially* in the case that you haven't given consent yet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
@halfbyte was ich mich bei dem dauerthema aber immer noch frage: es geht hier um pkw, oder? dadurch wird völlig vom thema lastverkehr und dessen massive folgen abgelenkt. die meisten (wenn nicht sogar alle?) lkws sind dieselfahrzeuge. auch wenn die feinstaubfilter etc haben, ist die belastung um ein paar potenzen höher, als bei so nem kleinen töfftöff.

I just received this from No-IP:
"Note: This email is a required legal notice; it is not a marketing or promotional email. That is why this email does not contain an unsubscribe link and why you are receiving this email even though you may have unsubscribed from No-IP's marketing emails."
I really like the part with "We're spamming you legally even if you unsuscribed from these emails"
People: "LOL, politicians have no idea how the Internet works at all."
The same people: "It's a great idea that the EU tries to regulate the entire Internet via unlimited chains of responsibility among companies across borders. We as citizens should be legally forbidden to make our own decisions about what servers and people we connect to, for our own good."
Here's one example of a truly evil company, selling your very personal data including an entire profile of you: https://www.gbgplc.com/
Under GDPR, most of what they store and sell does not need your consent, because of the various provisions that make it legal for them to both store it as well as give it to someone who you're about to sign a contract with. We'll have to see court cases to make sure that's the case, but guess who has more high-profile law firms working for them.
As a German, try having your data deleted by SCHUFA, a private company. Let me know how it goes.
Consent is only one of several options for why someone is allowed to store your data. People trying to frame this as "companies have to get users' consent for anything they store" are either lying to you, or haven't read the law.
