Description This paper focuses on public protection of consumers when concluding off-premises contracts. The main purpose behind this paper is to ascertain whether the selected public regulation of off-premises contracts in the Czech Republic ensures sufficient protection of the consumer. One may encounter the public issue of consumer off-premises contracts inter alias upon selling at markets and at wide-ranging sporting, cultural, social and recreational events and activities. Such a broad area would certainly deserve a separate analysis, but in regards to its diversity (and in many aspects its relative complexity), it cannot be explored further in this paper in all its dimensions. With regard to the ever-more-delicate problems of application practice, it will be necessary in the given context to focus attention on misleading and aggressive practices as unfair competitive practices. Especially observed will be the legal regulation of off-premises contracts under Act No. 476/2013 Coll., amending Act No. 634/1992 Coll., on Consumer Protection, the Consumer Protection Act, as amended (hereinafter “CPA”), especially with regard to protection of “especially vulnerable consumers”.
