- When selling products to consumers, the general terms and conditions may never stipulate an advance payment in excess of 50%.

- A complaint that cannot be solved in joint consultation within a reasonable period of time, or within 3 months after it was submitted, becomes a dispute that is subject to the disputes settlement scheme.
