Hey,

Am I the only one or any other customers here also have received following email ??

As a customer of DigitalOcean, we'd like you to participate in a short survey. The survey should take no longer than 4 minutes to complete. 

To begin the survey, click here. 

If you are not able to access the link above, please copy and paste the link below in your web browser.

Data collected in the survey will be kept private and anonymous.

Well, its not that I am unhappy with DO service. I am satisfied and such is reflected in my answers but I wonder how did they get my email address ??

As if it’s DO’s own survey then would have been fine but if its done from third party, DO is handing over my email address to them ??

@ DO Team

Not fair of you people, if you have done so..

It is spam and they are simply using your domains contact information. If you do a whois search for your domain, it should match whatever email they are spamming.
