Head note

This article provides a detailed analysis of the rights of a consumer pursuant to Art. 12 sec. 1 pt. 4 of the Prevention of Unfair Commercial Practices Act. The author focuses in particular on the nature of the right to invalidate the contract. He comes to the conclusion that Art. 12 sec. 1 pt. 4 does not create a new form of nullity, but simply applies a modified sanction of nullity from the Civil Code. Moreover, in the light of the Art. 12 sec. 1 pt. 4, only a consumer is entitled to invalidate the transaction with ex tunc effect. The aforementioned right cannot be the subject of limitation.
