It's so disappointing to see SparkPeople buckling in the face of the new legislation, without even trying. Those of us in the UK have had countless emails over the last few months about the new data protection legislation from firms which don't want to lose our business. We have to consent to receive emails and to have our details stored. It's possible to opt out at any time.

Why can't SparkPeople do the same?

Why cannot the notifications be routed to the internal Spark mail account for those members in the EU? It should not be that difficult of a "fix" for competent technical staff.

Right now we don't have plans for when emails would be available again. Sorry about that.

If you click on Account Preferences at the top left of your Start page, then click on the Email tab, you'll be able to click the link for some of them to view the current email. Not ideal, but at least it's one way to see some of the emails.
