    Hi guys, 

    You're totally right on this. This shouldn't have happened. You should have gotten a subsequent email about it.

    Again, my apologies for this.

    They quickly realized their mistake and a apology has been send. They're human and it's a small company. Mistakes will be made however unfortunate it can be.

    You can edit your post to overcome someone is making it Athom very difficult.
  • Sent out a reply just minutes after the email was received.

    For those who understand Dutch:

    TL;Dr : email addresses in a Cc by accident are not a 'privacy breach' , but IANAL.
  • Arnoud Engelfriet is a pretty influential lawyer though  ;) It appears every organisation has to make this mistake once.....
  • Not cool! Accident or not, we are talking about a lot of adresses... 427 to be exact :/ I noticed some have a profile picture and such. Alas most mail adresses are probably linked/hooked to a google account... :(

    On the other hand, no use crying over spilled water... Let's pray none of them are happy hackers and all are just your average geek/user  :|
