Code of EU Online Rights



As part of the Digital Agenda for Europe actions, the Code of EU online rights compiles the basic set of rights existing in EU legislation and related to the digital environment. The objective of the Code is to find simple explanations of their legal rights and obligations, set out in a transparent and understandable way.

As foreseen in the Digital Agenda for Europe, this list of online rights and principles will be an important tool for inspiring trust and confidence among consumers and contribute to promote greater use of online services.

These basic rights protect citizens and consumers for instance when using online services, buying goods online, and in case of conflict with their providers of these services.

Personal Comment : just concerns me about who is managing the balance between real benefit for economic growth and new burden on companies from these rules. The balance appears to me to favour red tape, more admin and bigger government, all of which I am not a fan of.
