The Robinson List of the DDV

For more than 47 years, DDV has offered those affected the opportunity to be included in the Robinson List. Anyone who does not wish to receive addressed advertising letters from companies for which they are not a customer or have not expressly agreed to receive them can be entered on this list.


Anyone can register with different spellings of his name in the list free of charge. The entry in the Robinson list is valid for five years and must be renewed thereafter. The time limit prevents the Robinson list from becoming obsolete, e.g. due to moving or marriage. According to DDV’s experience, between 80 and 90 percent of companies use the Robinson list, as this can considerably reduce advertising and postage costs.


However, the Robinson list cannot completely rule out the possibility of advertising letters to acquire new customers, as their use is voluntary in Germany. Those affected can call 0 52 44 / 90 37 23 or write to request an application form:
