Sometimes, You Just Need a Chief Privacy Officer
I have, little by little, been unsubscribing myself from things I never subscribed to in the first place. And deleting old emails that forward to the emails I actually use today. The spam level is reducing…slowly.
The day before yesterday, I unsubscribed to this email from a clothing company, received confirmation of my unsubscription, and then received another email yesterday from the same company. I can only hope that was an email that was already scheduled to go out and that they’ve really taken my email off their list.
And I thought, “CHIEF PRIVACY OFFICER?!” Please. You’ve got to be kidding me. You mean the corporate internet lawyer.
Because I can’t believe a clothing company actually keeps a Chief Privacy Officer on hand for all those pressing clothing privacy concerns. Though I could use a CPO myself to handle all my unsubscribes.
