The market for certain on line services, such as those based on the establishment of virtual platforms and communities, is characterized by the dominance of a number of global providers which have expanded their business models from the US to the rest of the world. Given the strict legal framework in force in the EU concerning consumer contracts and data protection, it has become of great importance the assessment of to what extent such restrictive regimes are being applied with regard to the contract terms under which those online services are being provided to European consumers. Such an analysis has deep implications, not only with regard to the level of effective protection of European consumers, but also to the extent that it affects the competitiveness of European companies subject to the strict European legal framework.
