In all information for consumers and users concerning the price of goods and services, including advertising, the full price must be given.

k) The procedure for dealing with complaints from consumers/users and, as relevant, information on out of court conflict resolution as envisaged in Article 21.4.
3. Pre-contractual information must be provided to the consumer/user free of charge and at least in Spanish”

Should any issue arise that is not regulated under the foregoing, the Spanish Civil Code will apply as a subsidiary regulation.
