And I'm trying really hard to stick to that, right at the moment.

Back at the beginning of December, Herself was sent an email by her employer about Covid vaccination bookings - only it was sent by "send to all", which means that every employee in the address book got every other employee's home email address. All 121 of them. A clear breach of GDPR.

I calmed down (since Herself uses my email address as she can't be bothered to read her own) and later sent a polite note to the home manager (via the email address her office bod had so kindly given me and everyone else) explaining what had happened, what the GDPR implications were, and just how big the fines a company can receive for this kind of thing.
I'm nice like that: try to get it resolved without bankrupting the company Herself works for, that's me!

Then today ... I get another email from the same idiot telling me that all pay slips will be sent electronically in future rather than issued physically. And again, she uses "send to all" and I get 117 email addresses ...

And I'm boiling again ... and trying really hard to calm down and not respond until I do ...

What do you have to do to tell these morons that they are doing something really, really, stupid? Preferably without bankrupting a company with GDPR fines? Sigh | :sigh:
