Law on the prohibition of unfair commercial practices

8. (1) If commercial practices may negatively influence only a specifically definable consumer group’s economic activity, which the performer of commercial practices might reasonably expect, taking into account the fact that these consumers are especially unprotected against the relevant practices, product or service due to the mental or physical state thereof, age or unreasonable trust (also due to the lack of experience or knowledge), then such commercial practices shall be assessed from the point of view of an average representative of the relevant consumer group. (2) What has been specified in Paragraph one of this Section shall not apply to the rights of the performer of commercial practices to utilise in an advertisement exaggerated statements or statements which are not meant to be taken literally.
