Legally they can send you as much email as they want, as long as they have an opt out link. They are also legally obliged to tell you where they got your email address from. Once you opt out they may not send you any more emails.

Heres an article i found about it, looks like the WASPA route is the right one:

"According to the WCoC (Conduct Committee), businesses need your explicit consent to send you marketing messages via SMS if you have not directly given them your number. You can lodge a complaint against any Waspa member that breaks this rule"

 

Only if they are a WASPA member

Why not just delete the message? Not a huge deal really. It is cycling related and maybe something good pops up.

Just Bela-Bela for me. Never bought anything from TDF, so no prior commercial connection either.

Doubt it to be SA-Active, been a member for many years, never had hassles.
