Content Services Ltd v Bundesarbeitskammer (Case C-49/11); [2012] WLR (D) 195

“Article 5(1) of Parliament and Council Directive 97/7/EC of 20 May 1997 on the protection of consumers in respect of distance contracts meant that a business practice which made the information referred to in that provision accessible to the consumer only via a hyperlink on a website did not meet the requirements of the Directive, since that information was neither ‘given’ by that undertaking nor ‘received’ by the consumer and was not a ‘durable medium’.”
