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

Reading the T&C at, it includes this line “By signing and submitting this form, I consent to receive phone calls, emails ...” which to me suggests you shouldn’t have received an email until you hit the submit button.

So it appears they’re in violation of their own T&C.

Exactly! I did not find anywhere on their site mentioning this behavior.

Good catch. Their reading is probably: "by signing (= filling in) as well as by submitting". In any way, it's just another violation of the principles of transparency and informed consent.
