Spam and tracking
University of the People uopeople.edu FAQ, also known as "University of the Scammers"
The Israeli ✡ diploma mill that claims to be an "American university"
On the other hand, UoPeople told us that "We do that because it's not illegal and because we show a cookie notice". True, technically it is not illegal. However, it is a very, very, questionable and unethical practice. Also, very few people are aware of all this.
Last but not least, if you sign up to the website but don't pay $60, they will start to bombard you with emails asking you to "complete the process" — which means paying $60 — claiming it is "your last chance" and a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity". On top of that, your email address will be sold to other spammers for "new great opportunities". All in all, UoPeople's marketing campaigns are pathetic and disregard the most basic rules of common sense.
