Act no. 47 of 2008 on the Prohibition of Unfair Commercial Practices against Consumers

ยง 4 (2) - (3) Where certain characteristics such as age, credulity or physical or mental infirmity make consumers particularly susceptible to a commercial practice or to the underlying goods and the behaviour only of the group, which can clearly be identified, of such consumers is likely to be distorted by the practice in a way that the person carrying out that practice can reasonably foresee, the practice shall be assessed from the perspective of the behaviour of the average member of that group. The common and legitimate advertising practice of making, to an extent determined by the nature of advertising, exaggerated statements or statements, which are not meant to be taken literally shall not be treated as a commercial practice likely to distort the behaviour.
