I got an email from the HR department of a company about a job opportunity. The email is addressed directly to me, so I was wondering if it is okay to ask them where they got my email address, or would it be considered rude?

It is perfectly fine to ask something like this. In some countries a company is even legally required to answer this question. It can even be illegal to send this type of unsolicited email.

For example, in Germany where I live, companies are required to give you this information. We have very strict regulations regarding when an email is unsolicited and thus not exactly legal to send.

what's your interest
