Since a few months ago, it has been much easier to cancel paid subscriptions, for example for fitness studios, streaming services, newspapers, Internet or cell phone contracts. The federal government under the leadership of Consumer Protection Minister Steffi Lemke has strengthened your rights as consumers in this area as well.
Providers are now obliged to place easy-to-find cancellation buttons on their websites. Cancellation is now possible in just a few steps. This also applies to contracts that were concluded before July 1, 2022, and can also be used for contracts that you did not conclude online. Cancellation by other means, such as in writing by e-mail, is of course still possible.
