Doesn‘t the fact that all the information EF has on was voluntarily submitted by you mean you haveconsented??
GDPR requires "explicit consent".

I.e. you need to perform an action (beyond providing your information) to consent to EF using your personal information.

Also worth noting that if the legal reason of processing is consent, then you have the right to ask the organisation to stop processing your data (or delete your data)... which is something most bbs don't want as it can quickly destroy threads (you suddenly lose half an argument, and the other half doesn't make sense).

Also worth noting, I can't see a privacy statement on here...
