The omission to mention in an advertising leaflet in which a product is promoted that an additional charge applies to a periodical service relating to this product, is an unfair commercial practice.
The defendant issued a leaflet that advertised a global positioning system device (GPS) mentioning that the maps included in it were periodically updated every six months. The defendant omitted to mention that this periodical updating service was additionally charged, hence not included in the indicated price.
