Due to recent changes in EU privacy laws, whenever a person's personal data would transfer between companies, that person has to opt-in to allow this transfer to happen. This includes when one company buys another and the only "transfer" is simply a change of ownership. Most countries outside of the EU have an opt-out policy, which means the transfer will happen unless you specifically request your account to be deleted. The EU is different, however, and requires us to explicitly get permission or delete the account. We greatly value our user's privacy, not only conforming with all laws, but often exceeding them on our user's behalf.
Curse Media was purchased from Twitch by Fandom, which means there's a change of ownership, and you can either allow your account, and any information tied to it, to "change owners" or have it deleted instead.
Specifically: EU users have to explicitly say "let it happen".
The site will serve both popups that you can accept, as well as emails to EU users where they can accept.
As an EU user, you had to explicitly agree to the popups/emails that went out.
If you didn't, your account, posts, threads, comments, and personal data were all deleted in accordance with EU law.
