While I can understand that AnyList (or any other app for that matter) would want to, on occasion, send marketing emails to users

I am not an AnyList user but do they ask when signing up if users would like to opt in to such marketing messages? It’s become such a pet peeve buying something from an online purveyor and not even having the choice to opt in or not on marketing emails and any other form of communication I did not explicitly ask for beyond completing a purchase.

seems like another reason for progressive consent and ASKING your users how they would like to be contacted and honoring those preferences
