So our details may or may not have been provided to Taubmans as part of the promotion... Comforting.Correct, it was sent by the club not by Taubmans.
So all the club is doing is a bit of advertising for their sponsor.
For some people who need some paint they might jump at the chance to buy a tin of paint and have a chance to win $1000 and may not have known about the offer until the clubs email.
"The club is doing a bit of advertising for their sponsor". Yep, there's the problem. The club are supposed to represent me, not Taubman's. How about a club that values their members enough not to use them as a source of advertising revenue? That doesn't look for more ways to monetise their member base?
There's a difference to selling stadium signage and offering our member lists to the highest bidder (whether they send it themselves or not).
