There is no law against disclosing your name and email address (or phone number, or physical) address to any other persons; anyone can disclose any other person's name and contact information to anyone they choose, unless they had signed a confidentiality or nondisclosure agreement. If they violate a signed agreement, they could potentially, if any harm thereby resulted, be sued for breach of contract. But without a signed confidentiality agreement, the disclosure is legal, regardless of your wishes.
