The Conciliation Board is an independent body that operates alongside the county chambers of commerce and industry and the Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The purpose of its establishment was to try to resolve disputes between Participants, Customers and Service Providers out of court, primarily to reach an agreement between the two parties and thus to help consumers to enforce their rights simply, quickly and effectively.

 

The Participant, Customer shall attempt to settle the dispute directly with the Service Provider as a condition for appealing to the Arbitration Board. The procedure of the Conciliation Board shall be free of charge, and the Participant, Customer may only be obliged to pay if the Board decides to the detriment of the Participant, Customer.

 

The proceedings of the Conciliation Board are initiated at the request of the Participant, Buyer. The request must be submitted in writing to the President of the Board of Arbitration: the requirement of written form may be satisfied by letter, telegram, teletypewriter or fax, or by any other means which enables the recipient to store the data addressed to him/her permanently for a period of time adequate for the purpose for which the data were intended and to display the stored data in unchanged form and content.

 

The application must include:

 

  • the name, residence or domicile of the Participant, Buyer,
  • the name, registered office or place of business of the Service Provider,
  • the designation of the Body requested instead of the competent Conciliation Body,
  • a brief description of the Participant's, Buyer's position, the facts supporting it and the evidence supporting it,
  • a statement by the Participant, Customer that the Participant, Customer has attempted to settle the dispute directly with the Service Provider,
  • a statement by the Participant, Buyer that no other Conciliation Board proceedings have been initiated in the case, no mediation proceedings have been initiated, no statement of claim has been filed, and no application for an order for payment has been submitted,
  • a motion for a decision by the Board,
  • the signature of the Participant, Buyer.

 

The request must be accompanied by the document or a copy (extract) of the document, the content of which the Participant, Customer refers to as evidence, in particular the written statement of the Service Provider rejecting the complaint, or, failing this, any other written evidence available to the Participant, Customer of the attempted consultation.

If the Participant, Buyer acts by proxy, the proxy must be attached to the application.

 

If the Participant, Customer detects a violation of his/her consumer rights, he/she has the right to lodge a complaint with the Consumer Protection Authority competent in his/her place of residence. After the complaint has been examined, the Authority shall decide whether to initiate consumer protection proceedings. The first instance consumer protection authority is the district office competent for the consumer's place of residence, a list of which can be found here: http://jarasinfo.gov.hu/

 

The Participant, Buyer is entitled to enforce his/her claim arising from the consumer dispute before the court in civil proceedings under Act V of 2013 on the Civil Code and Act CXXX of 2016 on the Code of Civil Procedure.

 

  1. Miscellaneous and final provisions:

 

The Customer's electronic order assumes that the Customer has technical and legal knowledge of electronic commerce. The Service Provider shall not be liable for any lack of such knowledge or for any defects in the electronic products caused by IT or telecommunications service providers (e.g. the Internet service provider).

 

The Customer is responsible for protecting his/her computer and the data on it.

 

If a binding legal provision or a court decision limits or invalidates any provision of these General Terms and Conditions, this shall not affect the validity of the other provisions of these General Terms and Conditions.

 

The Hungarian Civil Code (2013. évi V. tv.) and other applicable legal provisions shall prevail with regard to issues not regulated in these General Terms and Conditions.

 

  1. Relevant legislation:

 

The contract between the parties is governed in particular by the following legislation:

 

  • Act CLV of 2007 on Consumer Protection;
  • Act CVIII of 2007 on certain aspects of electronic commerce services and information society services;
  • Act V of 2007 on the Civil Code;
  • Government Decree 151/2003 (IX. 22.) on the mandatory warranty for certain consumer durables;
