Discussion on: I was emailed after abandoning a registration form. I did not click Submit. This is not ok.

So looking at this GDPR blog post they allow site admins to opt out of collecting PII and will work with existing cookie notification systems in order to respect customers choices, its a bit of a cop-out but they put the onus on the merchant to get consent and give them seemingly adequate tools to do so.

Checking the site mentioned as an EU customer with tracking protection and ad blocking turned off I see no GDPR notification and they are still making the request, so in this case it would be in violation of GDPR, however given that the form is for US customers enquiring about using health insurance to get a breast pump, its a bit of a moot point.
