    Hey there!

    I'm planning to start as an Affiliate at Clickbank but, as I'm German myself, I have to consider German Law.

    Are there any things (beneath adding an 'Impressum') to keep in mind when creating an affiliate site?
    I don't want to get sued by some gold-digging lawyer...

    Thanks :)

    Just FYI, I found this:
    Law on e-Mail Marketing marke-x.de/deutsch/webmarketing/archiv/email_marketing-recht.htm (Source; website in German)

    In summary:
    You have to consider the following when sending EVERY TIME to your mailing list:
    * you have to have the permit to text the addressee (he has to click it by hand, e.g. OptIn 'I want to recive mail')
    * there has to be an 'about us' in the mail. (yes, the whole fu**ing company information)
    * there has to be a work link/possibility to remove yourself from your list

    Missing just one of these 3 laws might end in an accusal.

    Anyone else with stuff to consider on German law?

    Your other option is to not rely on email campaigns or opt in lists to succeed in CB marketing, which can be tough from the point of view of pre-selling, but it can be done.
