The use on documentation of a trader of a stamp, on which the identification data of another trader are incorporated, constitutes an unfair commercial practice.
The defendant, a provider of solar panels, issued documents on which a stamp of another legal entity was added. As a result, it was not clear for a consumer which was the identity of the trader.
Several consumers subsequently filed a complaint with the Slovak Trade Inspection.
Does the use on documentation of a trader of a stamp, on which the identification data of another trader are incorporated, constitute an unfair commercial practice?
The administrative body held that the use on documentation of a trader of a stamp, on which the identification data of another trader are incorporated, is contrary to the requirements of professional diligence. The body further held that such practice is likely to distort the economic behaviour of the average consumer in relation to the product or service offered.
Further, it was held that such action may lead to confusion of the consumers to take an informed transactional decision.
The administrative body thus ordered the defendant to cease from exercising said unfair commercial practice.
