This confirmation is necessary to prevent people from registering with an email address that is not their own. Registrations for the newsletter are logged so that the registration process can be documented according to legal requirements. This includes saving the registration and confirmation times as well as the IP address. Similarly, changes to your data stored by the shipping service are logged as well.
