Opt Out was created because we believe that you have the right to privacy, and that exercising your right to privacy should be easy. The European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) provides the legal infrastructure to protect the fundamental right of people to the protection of personal data.
We believe that although the GDPR is a step in the right direction, exercising your rights under the legislation is just enough of a hussle for most people not to bother with it. The situation is made worse due to the fact that many organisations make it hard to file GDPR requests (for example by not publishing any corporate email addresses on their website). The purpose of this service is to make the GDPR accessible to everyone.
This is a free service. We are not a business and do not have a business model. We do not offer any services to the organizations on the list. We do not collect or trade any personal data. The service is Open Source.

We created this service because we believe that privacy matters, and that exercising your right to privacy should be easy. That’s why we’ve made it free. Donations allow us to spend more time working on improving this service (we’ve just started). It also allows us to work on new privacy related projects.
