A good question, so I’ll reply to the list – and making that clear here to ensure GDPR compliance 🙂

I don’t know because after hearing my friend’s horror tale of being taken to court, I deleted all the data I’d collected over the years and started again using MailChimp and double opt-in. If you use them, they will have that information somewhere. If you use another set-up, check with them. If you do it all yourself, keep a record of all subscriptions, including IP address, time-stamp, etc. That is what you need in a court of law, apparently.
