1. New legal regulation of cookies from 1.1.2022

Again, it should not be forgotten that stricter obligations are often enforced abroad. For example, according to German case law, a "double opt-in" is required for sending newsletters: after registering for the newsletter, the subscriber receives an e-mail with a verification link that he or she must click on to activate the newsletter. Without the "double opt-in" just described, the sender exposes himself to the aforementioned risk of a reminder ("Abmahnung"), as he is unable to prove that consent was given by the user of the e-mail address in question. In addition, the recipient of the junk mail is entitled to compensation of up to EUR 300 (judgment of AG Pfaffenhofen of 9.9.2021).
