On March 14, as part of the events dedicated to World Consumer Rights Protection Day 2022, an educational meeting was held between students of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine and specialists from the Central Yekaterinburg Department of the Rospotrebnadzor Administration for the Sverdlovsk Region of the Department for Consumer Rights Protection in the market of services and non-food products. The presented lecture on the topic “Peculiarities of buying goods on marketplaces” aroused a lively response and interest from students.
Recently, trading on marketplaces both in the Sverdlovsk region and throughout Russia has been quite relevant. These marketplaces have become the fastest growing sales channel during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alina Yakovleva, a second-year student, told how the lecture went and what new things the students discovered for themselves:
“We are the generation that is as close as possible to information technology. It would seem that we can learn something new from the lecture. But it wasn’t there, the specialists of the Consumer Rights Protection Department in the market of services and non-food products provided useful information about the distinguishing features of aggregator sites from online stores, and also introduced us to the procedure for concluding a sales contract: when, how and with whom this document and how to proceed in cases of invalidity/incompleteness/loss of goods.
We thank the Dean’s Office of the Faculty of Preventive Medicine and the Central Yekaterinburg Department of the Rospotrebnadzor Administration for the lecture.”
