I don't think we need to resort to putting words in people's mouths hereSo on one hand you want to adverstise your company and put a link in the footer for this, on the other hand you say it is not advertising because it is in the footer?
Not to mention the fact that actually clicking through and reading the article, it specifically refers to people automatically being signed up for promotional mailing lists without their consent, not whether the software used to send an email is allowed to say who generated it.
The article explicitly states that the only change needed post-GDPR is to make it clear to visitors that if they enter their email address to receive a free copy of something, then they are also consenting to receive promotional emails (which can be unsubscribed from at any time).
Given that DB Mail is not offering something for free in exchange for someone's email address to be added to an advertisement mailing list, this article has absolutely no relevance to DB Mail or its branding whatsoever.
I think there's already been enough muddying of the waters when it comes to the GDPR without latching onto the one word "promotional" and interpreting that in this way.
As I said previously, I have no plans to make any changes at this time, though plans can always change.
