At step 5 of installation, there you can mark to receive information about community and/or professional news. At this page you can read: "We will not share your email with anyone else...", but they do!
Matomo is a tool for tracking and to analyze users... so Matomo should be a tool that inspires 100% confidence! With informations like this, Matomo do not!
The correct way to fix this critical issue/bug:
The reason why this is a "critical issue/bug":
I and everyone else trusted Matomo. I gave an address that was until now only known internally, but now Mad Mini knows it and therefore this address is generally known.
It's the little things that create mistrust! At least I don't trust Matomo anymore, I was lied to. From today on I will control all data transfer and look for and implement a trustworthy alternative... can no longer recommend Matomo to anyone, give e.g. Open Web Analytics, Fathom Analytics, Ackee, etc. a try...
I also received another information from Matomo today. I agree with supervisor. You have to delete the recipient database, apologize to the recipients and admit the error, while keeping the recipient database without the unwanted one. Possible, although not without effort but easier to do than expected.
Just please: do it already! I also want to get off the list... and I definitely want nothing to do with GoDaddy.
Thanks for prioritizing.
BTW: It is not issue when signing for the newsletter, it is really a violation of privacy. (FYI: In Europe there are even laws that forbid and punish this kind of non-information, but not here.)
