with the new laws on GDPR coming into force in the uk very soon i am hoping someone can answer this...
I have a form for signing up for an event. I want to add a tick box that says 'please also add me to the enews list'. (they don't have to tick this it's only if they want the enews as well)
My colleague is saying that if they don't tick it but they are already signed up for our enews then that is considered an opt out and overrides any previous enews optin so we have to remove them.
I am arguing that they are only being given the option to be added or remain in whatever state they were previously, so by not ticking we don't have to do anything if they are already receiving our enews.
does anyone know which is correct and can you provide a source.
