Re: email addresses etc.

if it's so old (2017?) is it still true?

My emails from the last few months, quoted at the start of this thread, suggest otherwise.

 

Do BT actually keep their customers up-to-date? Or do we have to guess what's going on?

Re: email addresses etc.

I note that neither BT nor Oath have bothered to reply after more than two weeks.

Does that mean that my understanding is correct and BT want and expect me to accept privacy policies for advertising purpose from websites I have never heard of and never intend to use? And what about the policies written in foreign languages that I cannot understand? BT have already confirmed to me that they will not be providing any translation, do they expect and want me to take a couple of GCSEs in foreign legal documentation before they will let me use one of their email addresses? Or do they just want and expect me to agree to policies I cannot understand? My understanding is that in order to disallow cookies from each of these advertisers I am required to allow them each to place an opt-out cookie on my computer - is that right?

Re: email addresses etc.

How can I raise this issue as a complaint to BT ?

Re: email addresses etc.

Is it just me, or is BT really trying to alienate previously loyal customers?

What I am trying to do is set up an address to use solely for MyBT, separate from my active email accounts.

Why are BT apparently insisting I sign up to Oath when many of the Privacy Policies I must read, understand and accept are written in foreign languages and BT refuse to provide translations?

Can you set up a Gmail account and use that as the MyBT access? Naturally you'll have to agree with Google's T&Cs, much like the T&Cs with BTinternet.

You don't have to use webmail anyway, simply use a mail client,
