under threat of penalty


Explanation:

Let your context be your guide.

See the following:
Die Abmahnung enthält also die Aufforderung, eine bestimmte Handlung zu unterlassen. Diese ist häufig zusätzlich strafbewehrt.:Das bedeutet, dass der Abgemahnte sich nicht nur vertraglich gegenüber dem Abmahnenden verpflichtet, derartige Wettbewerbsverstöße jetzt und in Zukunft zu unterlassen, sondern auch eine Vertragsstrafe zu zahlen, sollte er erneut einen solchen Verstoß begehen.
The threatened penalty is often monetary.
