Here the third parties are important—trade partners from all over the word. There is no legal relation or actions between disputes and searching for the most convenient, fast, cheap and comfortable. Because of that, this article sets out general views on online transactions and consumer protection in the context of e-commerce and possible online dispute resolution means.
