Consumer Rights Training for Retailers - DIGITAL CONTENT Course Contents

1. Background

This section looks at who the Consumer Rights Act applies to and who it doesn't. It also highlights the need for identity and address to be clearly displayed on key business documents AND online.

2. Customer Rights Act

Here look at what constitutes 'digital content' and the legal standards that must be met for physical and non-physical digital content. We discuss liability, the 'right to supply' and a retailer's legal responsibilities. We also consider the remedies if digital content fails to meet standards.

3. Terms and Conditions

This section looks at Terms and Conditions, and the legal requirements for written and verbal contracts and conditions. We discuss breach of contract, unfair wording, and the 'Fairness Test'. We explain Blacklisted and Grey Listed contract terms, and the differences between the two.

4. Disputes

Customer complaints can usually be resolved directly. However, this is not always the case. If a complaint remains unresolved, a customer may want to take further action. This section looks at the route a customer may take, including 'Alternative Dispute Resolution'.

 Legislation relating to consumer rights

Consumer Rights Act 2015 

In October 2015 Consumer law was subject to some big changes as the Consumer Rights Act came into force. The changes included:

  • What to do when goods are faulty
  • What happens when there are unfair terms in a contract
  • More flexibility for enforcers to respond to breaches in law
  • Digital Content - What happens when it's faulty? Consumers now have the right to replacements or repair
  • Changes to how services should be match up to what was agreed between the consumer and the seller

Digital content to be of satisfactory quality

(1) Every contract to supply digital content is to be treated as including a term that the quality of the digital content is satisfactory.
(2) The quality of digital content is satisfactory if it meets the standard that a reasonable person would consider satisfactory, taking account of—

(a) any description of the digital content,
(b) the price mentioned in section 33(1) or (2)(b) (if relevant), and
(c) all the other relevant circumstances (see subsection (5)).

Chapter 3, Digital Content, Section 34 - Consumer Rights Act
