When you buy a product or service, the Consumer Protection Act gives you the right to assume several things about the transaction.
In the case of buying a product, you can assume that:
Sometimes a seller will send you a product that you have not asked for. You do not have to pay for this product, even if you use it. A seller may not charge you if someone steals this product, nor for losing or damaging it.
Sellers are also not permitted to use negative option strategies. This is when the supplier tells you that they will start sending you a product or service after a certain date and that you will be responsible for paying for it unless you contact them to say you do not want the item or service.
It is not possible to sign away your rights under the Consumer Protection Act even if you sign a contract that says you have agreed to do something that is prohibited.
