Buying the stuff you want in your PJs at home is pretty nice. However, things can get tricky - hello dress that looks nothing like the photo or faulty gadgets. Good thing you have rights. If a product is not delivered in 30 days, you have the right to cancel the order. Your can return something you got online within 14 days of receiving it without giving any reasons. Plus, the legal guarantee on all products is 2 years.
The EU is now working on some new rules that will come into force in the next few years. Sellers won’t be able to have different prices online for different countries and high delivery costs don’t have many fans in EU institutions either.
Knowing what’s in your food
When you go to the supermarket now and want to see if something is a calorie bomb, you can find the nutritional information on the package. Producers have to list the ingredients and nutritional information because of EU rules. It didn’t use to be this way.
Also, nutrition-related claims made by products in advertising have to be backed by scientific facts not by the guys at marketing.
