Does anyone out there know what the laws are concerning a retailer signing a user up to an email list, when that user gives their email address to the retailer specifically for the purposes of receiving their purchase receipt via email?
I am suspicious that certain retailers (namely Urban Outfitters), are offering to email you the receipts when you make an in-store purchase, but then also signing you up for their email list at the same time. Which sounds sketchy.
I got the receipt. Deleted it before I even read the email and then I looked up at my other new emails and I have a second email from Urban Outfitters. It said “Hello! Thanks for Signing Up to Receive Urban Outfitters Emails!“
But I was unable to find anything regarding the law here, and if they are within its bounds. Either way, it just feels wrong.
