On August 10, 2023, the Ukraine parliament adopted the Law of Ukraine No. 3321-IX ‘On Digital Content and Digital Services” (the ‘Law’). The law was officially published on 2 September 2023 and will become effective on 2 March 2024 after the completion of a 6-month transitional period necessary for businesses and governmental authorities to adapt its provisions. Notably, this law implements legal regulation of the supply of digital content and/or digital services to consumers and brings the national legislation of Ukraine into compliance with Directive (EU) 2019/770 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 May 2019 on certain aspects concerning contracts for the supply of digital content and digital services.
A recent article authored by Anna Tsyvinska, Senior Associate at Elias Neocleous & Co LLC, and published on Mondaq explores the implications of this new law in regard to the contractual obligations of the performer, the provision and use of a consumer’s personal data by the performer, and the storage of the digital content. The article also discusses the penalties incurred for violation of consumer rights.
