 .A. Directive 93/13 on unfair terms in consumer contracts


E-commerce and Consumer Protection Law

As we have seen, data protection law does not always apply in the case of profiling practises. In the case of the collection of data that are not linkable to identifiable persons; in the case that data are used to construct a group profile and when the profile is applied to an anonymous user in a group, D95/46 may not be applicable. This can lead to a loss of control and creates questions as to autonomy and self-determination. We shall now investigate possible protection offered in the field of e-commerce and consumer protection law.
