Officials proposed to introduce in the code a new portion of penalties for violation of consumer rights. If the bill is approved, the auditors office will begin to punish sellers for forcing consumers to provide their personal data. This can be a series and passport number, home address, credit card information, insurance policy number, automobile insurance, or OMC. A violation will be considered as entreaties and threats to terminate the contract or not to bring the ordered goods in the event of buyer’s failure to provide private information about yourself. Employees of the store or perhaps a beauty salon for such extortion will be waiting for a fine from one to three thousand rubles. And the firm will pay the sum from 10 to 20 thousand rubles. The new law will be the only disclaimer: seller’s requirements or contractor’s service to provide personal data is lawful only if it is prescribed by law or, if no such client information it is impossible to fulfill the contract with him. It is planned that the new rules will start on 1 July 2018.
