to comply with legal regulations as their clients</q> .&quot;</p><h2> Advertising calls without consent</h2><p> According to the Bundesnetzagentur&#39;s findings, KiKxxl GmbH had made unauthorized advertising calls on behalf of various companies with a strong market position in the telecommunications, energy and insurance sectors.</p><h2> Serious deficiencies in the examination of advertising consents</h2><p> The call center made all these calls, although in the cases considered in the fine notice no or no effective advertising consent was available from the consumers called. During the course of the proceedings, it emerged, among other things, that KiKxxl GmbH had insufficiently checked the existence of such advertising consents and in some cases had not checked at all. This resulted in her using a lot of consent data that was out of date, legally flawed, or even inauthentic. Although numerous consumers complained to the company about received marketing calls and pointed out the problems, the company continued its practice.</p><p> Many of those affected also reported to the Federal Network Agency that despite the prohibition of further calls, there were frequent contacts that made them feel massively harassed.</p><p> The Federal Network Agency had already imposed a heavy fine in one case on the contracting company for alleged illegal advertising calls.</p><p> The fine against KiKxxl GmbH is not yet legally binding. The company has appealed against the Federal Network Agency&#39;s decision. The Bonn District Court is responsible for the judicial decision.</p><h2> Report unauthorized telephone advertising</h2><p> Consumers who receive advertising calls to which they have not consented or which they receive despite an advertising cancellation can contact the Federal Network Agency at <a class="RichTextIntLink ConfigShortLink" href="telefonwerbung-beschwerde.html;jsessionid=03329C4BE7912B70144E526F67CC3D8D?nn=265778" title="telephone advertising complaint">www.bundesnetzagentur.de/telefonwerbung-beschwerde</a> .
