  • Introduction to Consumer Law

    An introduction to consumer law for those studying the subject for LLB/GDL law in the UK. Consumer law is an extension of contract law and therefore requires the essential elements of a contract: offer; acceptance; consideration; and intention to create legal relations. However consumer law is more specific and deals with contract between a buyer and a seller. The seller is a commercial entity whereas the consumer buys for personal reasons. This creates a power imbalance that lies at the heart of consumer law and is something that the law has to constant tackle. Consumer law has recently been consolidated in the Consumer Rights Act 2015. Although consumer law mainly deals with civil law there are also elements of criminal law involved when thinking about corporate manslaughter.

However, infusing these technologies with values and rights set out in the Lisbon Treaty and the Charter of Fundamental Rights has proved to be challenging. Different regulators in the areas of data protection, consumer law and antitrust as well as sectoral bodies driven by the shared objective – the protection of fundamental rights – have been supervising compliance of new technologies. But they tend to work in silos, despite the obvious issues (e.g., unfair privacy terms imposed for web-based services). To aid this situation, the EDPS facilitates a Digital Clearing House bringing together regulators from different jurisdictions at national and supranational level, offering a chance to exchange information and determine the best means of tackling abuse and potential threats to the rights and interests of individuals in the online environment. This panel will consider the following questions: - What should be the priorities for this network? - Which cases in the fields of competition, consumer, data protection and others require more dialogue and cooperation across jurisdictional boundaries? -Should it be possible for regulatory authorities in one jurisdiction to require remedies which address the concerns of other authorities? - How might this be achieved while respecting the independence of regulators and the confidentiality of investigations?

I wanted to give Joy a platform to discuss in great details the FACTS that challenge the Councils arguments and to truly educate people of what this toxin does to the human body. Joy Warren has worked in the West Midlands all her life, including several years in Government Departments and at the University of Warwick. She gained a BSc. (Hons) in Environmental Science in 2002 following which she inspired the Warwick Environment Network which was succeeded by Warwick University adopting formal environment programmes. In 2007, she became the University’s Environment Programmes Coordinator, a job which she held for three years prior to retirement. As a member of FoE, she was also instrumental in preventing the building of Coventry City’s second waste incinerator, thus paving the way for the City’s successful recycling programme. She is particularly concerned about the detrimental effects on our health of substances which are deliberately and accidentally introduced into our environment. She has researched the fluoridation controversy since 2004 although other artificial and naturally-occurring health-damaging substances also concern her. Having acquired a Certificate in Health and Nutrition, she avoids doctors and allopathic medicine and instead, self-treats. It goes without saying that she avoids ingesting and absorbing fluoride even though she lives in a fluoridated city. During the past seven years, she has collaborated with three other anti-fluoridation groups in Hampshire, Bedford and Wakefield and has successfully helped them to prevent water fluoridation. Initial attempts to fluoridate Barnsley and Nottingham have been put on the back burner due to her activity. Her current focus is on Hull and the East Riding.

With increasing data brokering and a growing industry willing to pay for user data, there is little incentive for legal compliance. This causes users to mistrust technological products and services, which, in turn, has a chilling effect on the digital economy. In this regard, it seems that smart phones and their apps work in a way that is incompatible with their own terms of service and privacy policies. Moreover, these [terms of service and privacy policies] are themselves shown to be inconsistent with EU consumer and privacy regulations. Creating a digital environment in which consumers can trust apps with access to their personal data, should be a win-win for consumers, industry and governments. The panel will discuss how we get there. In particular, the following questions will be discussed: - How do we move towards a digital market that provides the innovative mobile apps we desire, while meeting consumers’ rights when it comes to privacy, ownership and fair agreements? - How can we create a digital environment where consumers can trust apps with access to personal data, without having to search terms and conditions for breaches of rights? - How can platforms and app providers make sure that basic consumer rights in apps are met? - How can governments more efficiently intervene when consumer rights are breached in mobile apps?

Investigations by University of Leicester microbiologists have revealed that just a small amount of damage to salad leaves could massively stimulate the presence of the food poisoning bug Salmonella in ready-prepared salad leaves. The scientists have discovered that juices released from damaged leaves also had the effect of enhancing the virulence of the pathogen, potentially increasing its ability to cause infection in the consumer. The research is led by Dr Primrose Freestone of the University’s Department of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation and PhD student Giannis Koukkidis, who has been funded by a Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council i-case Studentship. Their research investigates novel methods of preventing food poisoning pathogens from attaching to the surface of salad leaves to help producers improve food safety for consumers. This latest study, published today (18 November) in Applied and Environmental Microbiology found that juices from damaged leaves in bagged spinach and mixed salad increased Salmonella pathogen growth 2400-fold over a control group and also enhanced their adherence to surfaces and overall virulence, or capacity to cause disease. Dr Freestone said: “Salad leaves are cut during harvesting and we found that even microliters of the juices (less than 1/200th of a teaspoon) which leach from the cut-ends of the leaves enabled Salmonella to grow in water, even when it was refrigerated. These juices also helped the Salmonella to attach itself to the salad leaves so strongly that vigorous washing could not remove the bacteria, and even enabled the pathogen to attach to the salad bag container. "This strongly emphasises the need for salad leaf growers to maintain high food safety standards as even a few Salmonella cells in a salad bag at the time of purchase could be become many thousands by the time a bag of salad leaves reaches its use by date, even if kept refrigerated. Even small traces of juices released from damaged leaves can make the pathogen grow better and become more able to cause disease. "It also serves as a reminder to consume a bagged salad as soon as possible after it is opened. We found that once opened, the bacteria naturally on the leaves also grew much faster even when kept cold in the fridge. “This research did not look for evidence of salmonella in bagged salads. Instead, it examined how Salmonella grows on salad leaves when they are damaged." Leafy green and other salad vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet, providing vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibre. Ready to eat prepared salads are particularly popular, are widely consumed and so of significant economic importance. Over recent years there has however been a number of outbreaks associated with fresh salad produce contaminated with Salmonella and E. coli both in the USA and Europe. This has triggered considerable interest in effective strategies for controls and interventions measures both in UK industry, the EU and key research funding bodies (http://www.food.gov.uk). Research published recently by the Food Standards Agency reported that annually there are more than 500,000 cases of food poisoning in the UK. While poultry meat was the most common source of infection, some 48,000 of food poisoning cases were from fresh produce: vegetables, fruit, nuts and sprouting seeds http://www.food.gov.uk/news-updates/news/2014/6097/foodpoisoning. Importantly, Salmonella was the pathogen that caused the greatest number of hospital admissions – around 2,500 per year. Despite a number of published reports on improving the microbiological safety of salad leaf production, very few studies have investigated the behaviour of Salmonella once the leaves have been bagged. Giannis said: "Anything which enhances adherence of foodborne pathogens to leaf surfaces also increases their persistence and ability to resist removal, such as during salad washing procedures. Even more worrying for those who might eat a Salmonella contaminated salad was the finding that proteins required for the virulence (capacity to cause infection) of the bacteria were increased when the Salmonella came into contact with the salad leaf juices. "Preventing enteric pathogen contamination of fresh salad produce would not only reassure consumers but will also benefit the economy due to fewer days lost through food poisoning. We are now working hard to find ways of preventing salad-based infections" This film was made by Marketing and Student Recruitment at the University of Leicester.

Organised by CPDP Chair: Bojana Bellamy, Hunton & Williams (UK) Moderator: Tine Larsen, National Commission for Data Protection (LU) Panel: Julie Brill, Federal Trade Commision (US), Finn Myrstad, the Norwegian Consumer Council (NO), Marie-Charlotte Roques-Bonnet, Microsoft (FR), Wojciech Rafał Wiewiórowski, EDPS (EU) Are we, as consumers, disciplined and patient enough to read, understand and, most of all, dig into privacy issues before consenting? Does clicking “yes” before signing an agreement, accessing a service or purchasing a product mean that we have full understanding of the data processing we consented to? Concretely, in an Internet of things, big data and online “take-it or leave it” world, shall we still consider prior consent as giving data subjects’ full control over their data? Article 7 of Directive 95/46 identified several legal grounds “for making data processing legitimate”. First of all grounds, for almost 20 years, the “notice and consent” mechanism has been fairly considered as the core principle for processing personal data. It should still be considered as such. However, data subjects’ unambiguous consent cannot stem from a prior, once and only once “ticking a box”. Practically, and insofar as the European Parliament focuses on “lifecycle data protection management” (art. 33-3 of EP draft regulation), consenting before collection can only be a starting point. At most, in an ideal world where, on the one hand, comprehensive, intelligible and clear information would be given and, on the other hand, it would be cautiously read, assessed and fully accepted, prior consent could only trigger the first step to control personal data and monitor its further use. In order to reconcile an “out-of-this-world-theory” of prior consent and “real-life-best-way-to-monitor”, the panel will address the following points: The criteria for qualification in “unambiguously given” consent in the Internet of things, Big data, online services and opt-in partners world; The legal approach data controllers should retain when data subjects’ prior consent cannot either be asked for or be obtained unambiguously; The means needed to ensure consumers’ trust, through a careful and regular balancing of the legitimate interests of the data holder against the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject; The reasonable but necessary steps data controllers should take so as to give effective and lasting control back to users who gave prior consent to the collection of their personal data.
