Your statutory rights as a consumer

For Malta based customers, the EU Directive 2011/83/EU says that you have a 14 day right to change your mind and get a full refund on the purchase of a Voucher. The Consumer Rights Legislation says digital content must be as described, fit for purpose and of satisfactory quality. If your digital content is faulty, you’re entitled to a repair or a replacement. If the fault can’t be fixed, or if it hasn’t been fixed within a reasonable time and without significant inconvenience, you can get some, or all of your money back. If you can show the fault has damaged your device and we haven’t used reasonable care and skill, you may be entitled to a repair or compensation. Refunds will be made using the same method as the original payment. You may email us on sam@mtlocal.mt. Alternatively, you may use this form http://eccnetmalta.gov.mt/consumer-information/redress/ if you wish, but you do not have to.
