It is an unfair commercial practice to claim to provide a free product together with the purchase of a main product, while the free product is not actually delivered.
The defendant is a trader that offered a product (Olpran trampoline) with a sheet on the casing saying "GRATIS!!! Camitin - weight-loss product" (including a picture of the product "Camitin 500ml"). Despite this statement, the weight-loss product was not actually provided with the trampoline.
Is it an unfair commercial practice to claim to provide a free product together with the purchase of a main product, while the free product is not actually delivered?
This practice was considered to harm the consumer's economic interests. As the promised product (Camitin) was not actually provided with the trampoline, the conduct of the trader was qualified as a misleading commercial practice.
