A “few thousand” consumers opted out of RapLeaf's services on Monday, Joel Jewitt, the company's VP of business development, told the Journal.

The reports come as marketers are trying to avoid becoming the target of future privacy legislation or regulation. Industry groups launched a self-regulation program to that end this month.
