It scrutinizes their underlying processes and the way they serve the consumer, therebyhighlighting risks and issues associated with their use. The ultimate aim is to ascertain whether the current EU regulatory framework relating to consumer protection, e-commerce, data protection and security adequately addresses the relevant risks and issues, thus affording a safe' shopping environment to the e-consumer.
