  1. Thank you Dave - I will allow until Monday next week for you to make any response. Whilst I appreciate you may have announced in May this year that changes are going to be made, I don't think that's much of a defence or excuse considering the GDPR has been in place for almost 18 months now (plus the business had ample time in the run up to the GDPR being enacted) so I find it difficult to believe that it takes more than 4 months since your announcement to amend the software code and remove the pre-ticked box. Seems to me this is more to do with priorities and the business has decid
  2. The letter wasn't addressed to anyone specific but it was sent to your registered office listed on Companies House by recorded delivery and it was signed for on 20 August - I will PM you the tracking number.

Yes you might say that it was shown on the initial install box but mine went straight to install for whatever reason. Nonetheless, I'm concerned about the fact that Piriform have the box pre-ticked which is out of kilter with the GDPR since it's a form of marketing.
