You can find your personal Gem address by clicking on your profile in the upper right corner -> Settings -> scroll to the bottom section called “Miscellaneous Settings.”

Manually Unsubscribe Your Candidates

If a candidate has let you know that they’d rather not receive future outreach from you or your team, you can manually unsubscribe them from all future communications. Open up the sequence that the candidate is in, click the gear icon on the right, and select “Globally Unsubscribe.” Note that this action is not reversible.
