I was changing my address a week ago and I noticed that it said in tiny letters that the information I provide may be used for direct advertising, marketting, scientific research, data collection and "other things" (rough translation).
I'm not comfortable with that. I'm not even comfortable with the fact that I am unmarried, married, divorced, undivorced, etc is getting registered somewhere. Even place of birth, although I could see reasons for place of birth (identification). Why would they even need to know my marital status, etc? It's my personal life (if someone comments on that - bonus points!)
Can I legally opt out of such use of my personal information or legally refuse to provide it, according to any of the EU laws? I believe that GDPR only covers websites and not information you provide to the government.
