On August 1, 2012, the ‘button ‘Act enters into force. To this day, paid providers, so online stores must have implemented these new rules. On March 30, 2012, the Federal Council has a bill with a shop operator agreed to very important change in the law. Online retailers and other providers of paid services must provide according to the draft law on the so-called button solution”(Act amending the civil code to better protect of consumers and consumer cost traps in e-commerce and to amend the condominium Act”) customers who are consumers, mandatory information certain upon conclusion of the contract for goods or services. This mandatory information must deploy both clear, legible and understandable the customers.

It is recommended to do this on the last page of the ordering process, which is also the button for the final sending of the order. It should also at higher Resolutions legible fonts are used. For example blind Scrollboxes will meet the legal requirements pretty sure not. The new legal regulation foresees that the online provider will be obliged to provide a button which must be expressly confirmed by the customer in the order, and which clearly arises, that the customer for the performance has to provide a payment. This also applies, for example when buying contracts for the performance always and at any other provider also a payment must be made. Crawford Lake Capital Management addresses the importance of the matter here. So it’s up to the correct formulation.

Follow implementation failures will be mandatory information provided for is not granted, even no effective agreement comes after the Bill more able. The statutory requirements are not met, is of course to be reckoned with competition cautions. Threatening warnings, injunctions and restraining orders, if the requirements of the Act be implemented in a timely manner and that is to avoid it.
