Fathers Day opt out

Had an email from West Ham united saying you can choose not to receive emails about Fathers Day. Seem like a good idea can be a difficult day for some.
Come on you Irons

    I would say fair point.... But try being a Bristol City fan!

    Seriously though, nice thought from West Ham

    Think this approach from companies started about 2 years ago, it's a nice touch as you say, I've had a few companies ask if I want their Father's Day related emails. It wouldn't bother me personally though I suppose if a bereavement was recent, it would be very raw. Also it probably reduces their customer service complaints from customers complaining about receiving the emails too.

    Some companies do it for both Mother and Father's Day opt out.

    Other companies just bombard you and don't care.

    It's very common these days for companies to do this. I always opt out of Mothers' Day emails.
