such as request i don't think it's double because the email is belong to the customer but you may obtain a part of it if that file is infected with a virus or maleware etc , at this moment the antivirus Will interfere to prevent the virus deployment and you will get notification as an infected machine and you can follow up to find that user but as your request i don't think so.

You need to create an email with a link distinct for each customer. That link would contain the customerId and then you will be able to track who clicked.

if you want to create a generic email (the same for everyone), you will need to have the customer to identify itself (login) on your landing page before retrieving his information. That will be a pain for customers believe me!

if you don't want the customer to login, you need to provide an ID through the link!
