    Email address

    If somebody asks me "Would you like to share your email with us"?. Is it correct to say "I don't have an email address"?

    Re: Email address

    That's fine.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Email address

    In addition to your suggested response, you could say "I don't have one". It's becoming more and more unusual for someone not to have an email address at all these days.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I often say 'I don't have one'.

    It's quicker than saying 'Sorry, but I don't wish to give you my email address as I've found that doing so generates even more spam than I get already'.
