English translation:unrequested
Explanation:
the German word you have should be "unaufgefordert" which means "unrequested" in English.

It means, someone has not made a request for something, but is going to get it anyway (Sie erhalten unaufgefordert).

Could it be a typo / difficult to read document? This is the nearest I can think of!

unaufgefordert ?


Explanation:
This is not a German word, but I guess what was meant is unaufgefordert, which means without having to ask for it (but I do not know which is the idiomatic English expression you would use in this context).
Hope this helps.
