ICO fines Flybe, Honda for breaking data rules. They were, um, trying to comply with GDPR

Wow - you're forgiving!

I let a first violation go as it could be a mistake (it's unlikely but hey ho) and I let the company know they should stop.

On the second email the destination email address is deleted and that's it for that company.

On calls if it's an unrecognised number it doesn't get answered. I do a quick call back to check; if it's dodgy they go on the block list immediately.

I don't answer withheld numbers unless I'm definitely expecting a call from one. If I'm definitely not expecting one it doesn't get answered at all.
