     "Opt-out is where you are told that you will get marketing unless you 
say you don't want them. Organisations can collect only your email address 
on an opt-out basis if they can satisfy the exemption criteria. "

Is there an error above or can orgs only collect your email address and no 
other data from an opt-out?
