What did you expect to happen?
Subscribing to the newsletter for updates on Umbraco Versions, Bulletins & Community news should be un-checked by default to comply with GDPR requirement on consent:
From recital 32: "Silence, pre-ticked boxes or inactivity should not therefore constitute consent." https://gdpr-info.eu/recitals/no-32/
What actually happened?
It defaults to opted-in (pre-ticked checkbox) for subscribing to the newsletter: "Keep me updated on Umbraco Versions, Security Bulletins and Community News". This box should not be ticked by default to comply with GDPR requirements for consent.
