Does GDPR even apply here? Feb 11

Isn't this business data rather than personal data?

I'm curious though about why you see this as a problem. You gave them the data. What harm is it doing?

And why can't you just send them an email and ask them?

Unless you are buying Feb 11

from these agencies something in your private capacity / as an individual consumer instead of selling your services / being in business with them what's the GDPR got to do at all in this story???

It might be only you, but for these agencies you are a supplier - a business. Get these basics right.

You can't stop anyone building a database of commercial suppliers - do you ask for anyone's permission if you start making a list of builders you might use to renovate your house?
