The next

Doua minute si treizeci de secunde, de data asta! (interventia este referitoare la un raport privind increderea in comertul prin internet)

At the first sight, digital environment looks like being a model of a world without boundaries, like a kind of theoretical, perfect common market where everyone can provide goods, information services, communication, entertainment, and everyone is able to buy all these. It is not true. We can notice a strong fragmentation caused by the lack of trust from both sides – suppliers and consumers – but we have also noticed an unfounded economic protectionism that uses the same uncertainties as a justification for excluding a part of possible consumers from the market. The consumers coming especially from small or new Member States are still victims of a segregation based on nationality, place of residence or place of origin of their credit cards. In my country, Romania, there are great problems from this point of view because of a bad reputation artificially acquired and maintained, despite the fact that the report provided by Cyber Source Corporation did not include Romania among the countries with a high level of risk regarding electronic commerce. And it is not only our case. There are companies that are used to changing the prices depending on the place of residence of the consumer or forbidding totally the access to their supply of goods or services. These kind of commercial behaviours are hardly acceptable for consumers and small business operators. In order to avoid the feeling of being discriminated we need concrete and urgent measures: a database with those who are not indeed trustworthy, European trust-marks and common standards concerning contracts, terms, conditions as well as stronger legal instruments and technical protection for those who use cyber space.

We are looking forward to have a European Charter of users’ rights and obligations in order to support an inclusive society in the digital environment also.

    Subscriu 🙂 Deşi e mai degrabă o problemă de lobby şi putere de cumpărare…

    poate ar trebui ca interventiile dvs in limba engleza sa fie vazute de cineva care chiar stie limba: ultima fraza postata suna extrem de ciudat

  • gabicretu

    Aveti sugestii de reformulare!? Dar cu o conditie – sa fie de la cineva care chiar stie politica!

  • alt nimeni

    Stimata doamna, reformularile nu tin de substanta discursului dvs ci de formularea lui in limba engleza. Din acest motiv conditia ca reformularea sa vina din parte cuiva “care chiar stie politica” este irelevanta. Desi studiez stiinte politice nu afirm ca stiu politica, dar pot afirma ca va pot oferi o varianta corecta in limba engleza a ceea ce doreati sa spuneti dvs.
    “We are looking forward to have an European Charter of users’ rights and obligations in order to ALSO support an inclusive society in THE digital environment (also aici nu isi avea rostul).”

    I agree! Multumesc pentru atentie (chiar daca era rau intentionata fara motiv). Nu am observat eroarea de transcriere (e o transcriere facuta de altcineva).La THE ma refer!
    Cat despre also, aici e alta problema. Nu de engleza; de dezbatere (de aceea am spus ca vorbesc cu politicienii)…

  • alt nimeni

    Din nou faptul ca vorbiti cu politicienii nu are relevanta. “Also” exista si in discursul dvs si in reformularea propusa de mine. Singura diferenta este ca in formularea dumneavoastra locul sau era nepotrivit la sfarsitul frazei.

    At first sight, the digital environment appears to be a model of a world without boundaries, a kind of theoretical, perfect common market where everyone can provide goods, information services, communication and entertainment, and were everyone is also able to purchase these things.

    This is not true! First, a strong fragmentation caused by a lack of trust occurs on both sides – suppliers and consumers. An unfounded economic protectionism arises based on these uncertainties, which are used as a justification for excluding a segment of possible consumers from the market.

    Consumers coming from small or new Member States in particular are still victims of segregation based on nationality, place of residence or place of origins of their credit cards.

    In my country, Romania, an unfortunate reputation has been artificially acquired and maintained, despite the fact that the report provided by Cyber Source Corporation did not include Romania among the countries with a high level of risk regarding electronic commerce, and does not substantiate such a reputation.

    Romania is not the only country to suffer from these misconceptions. There are companies that are inflating the price of goods depending on the place of residence of the consumer or forbidding completely the access to their supply of goods or services.

    This kind of commercial behavior is unacceptable for consumers and small business operators. In order to avoid feelings of discrimination, concrete and urgent measures are necessary: including, but not limited to

    o A database with those who are not indeed trustworthy

    o European trust-marks and common standards concerning contracts, terms, conditions
    and
    o Stronger legal instruments and technical protection for those who use cyber space

    We are looking forward to the adoption of a European Charter of users rights and obligations in order to support an inclusive society in the digital environment.

    Aceasta este o forma revizuita a postului de mai sus. Reformularile au fost facute pt a face prezentarea mai fluida, mai usor de inteles pt cei care folosesc engleza pt comunicare(modificari de sintaxa)
