Penalty for Vodafone Germany for unauthorized advertising calls
The German Federal Network Agency imposed a fine of €100,000 on Vodafone Kabel Deutschland GmbH (Vodafone). Vodafone, as well as Vodafone call centers and sales partners, have disturbed both potential new customers and former customers (attempting to persuade the customer to withdraw a notice of termination) by making advertising calls, even though they had not given their consent to advertising calls. In many cases, even customers who had already prohibited these advertising calls were contacted with up to 30 additional calls.
