I got an email saying that someone added me to data.com connect... I know my own information has existed in the database for years. I just checked this morning to see if someone changed my status, and it now says that I've opted out? Very strange...

Not only does a contact receive an opt-out notification when their business info is initially added to Connect, but also on a yearly cadence, on or around the anniversary of the original submission.
It appears that you clicked on the link within this e-mail, choosing to opt-out. Your contact is now suppressed.

I don't believe that is what happened. I'm not sure if it was your intention, but it appears that when you received the notification e-mail, you opted out. Our records show this happened on 5/28/18.
