    OK I get that. And clearly their data retention policy for historic customer has identified me a possible returning customer. But name and DOB as a primary key if you like? I would never get away with using those as an identifier with historic data (even with a mother maiden name appended to it), and I actually couldnt confirm the address I was living at, at that time. Nor would I expect to hold on to that kind of information for so long. I dont know what/if I intend to do anything because its not exactly for a mortgage or a crime I didnt commit. Just seems inappropriate
    As long as they are only using your data to identify you as a returning customer and it is detailed in their data privacy / use policies then they have done nothing wrong either under GDPR or the previous Data Protection rules. You will have agreed to the terms and conditions back in 2006 although probably like 99.9% of us on here would not have read them in details or considered how it might affect you 12 years later.

    But I can put a tennis racket up against my face
    And pretend that I am Kendo Nagasaki

      But all those emails people received about updated terms and conditions in anticipation of GDPR, shouldn't there have been one of these from the company?

      Not necessarily. My understanding is that if the original conditions were clear and had not changed then there was no need to re-seek permission.

      Also, we don't know if the OP was sent an email or if it would have been sent to an old email address.

      They could well have sent an email, probably to a work address back then which no longer exists anyway. I thought that the emails that were sent were as a new opt in anyway, and positive replies would be an opt in, and no reply/opt out would be do not contact. Thats a different story anyway, I tried to market myself to them not the other way round

      Na I'd been up a while! And was in a remarkably good mood, must have just wanted a rant.
